Diet and lifestyle factors become visible to encompass a crystal-clear influence on innate and adaptive immunity, influencing development of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) [1,2]. Certain derivatives of EFA like oxylipins have been reported to reveal a vital role in the progress of immunity and thus inflammatory responses. Consequent to stimulation led by cytokines, hormones and viral infection, PUFA conjugated to membrane phospholipids are released from cell membranes, followed by acting as substrates for fabrication of dodecanoid, eicosanoid and docosanoids. Western nature diets with deficient PUFA and supplementary micronutrients may decline these eicosanoids consequential to reducing T lymphocyte function and immune resistance, likelihood of certain infection. The Indo-Mediterranean diet with no animal foods (except fish), lower saturated fat and total fat, sugar, and salt, high omega-3 fatty acids and flavonoids concomitant with moderate intake of alcohol, are likely to reveal advantageous possessions and eventually performing as immune-modulators [1,2]. This ‘Editorial’ aims to highlight the functionally enriched diet to be most significant nutritional modulators of immunological function likely to providing protection from diseases as follows.
