EpiCor 500 mg 30 capsules DISCONTNIUED

CAD $28.68

EpiCor is a fermented form of a species of yeast called Saccharaomyces cerevisiae, which is the main source of nutritional yeast and yeast extract. Also known as Dried Yeast Fermentate and Brewer’s Yeast, this microscopic unicellular fungi is often used in commercial food products and alcoholic fermentation. This yeast is rich in amino acids, vitamins, and enzymes that help boost your immune system and support your health against common seasonal ailments.

EpiCor helps balance your immune system in three ways: it helps strengthen your skin and mucous membranes (your body’s first line of defense), it stimulates your immune cells, and it supports the production of T-cell and B-cell immune factors.

EpiCor is unlike any other ingredient on the market—it’s not an herb, vitamin, or mushroom. This all-natural, high-metabolite immunogen has been shown to promote the body’s natural defense mechanisms and balance the body’s inflammatory response.

Product Description

How EpiCor is Made

In 1943, a company in Iowa began manufacturing a fermented yeast product that was and still is used as an additive for animal feed to help improve digestion and overall wellness. This company became aware of the unusually good health among the employees. Their subsequent investigation led to the discovery and production of EpiCor as a supplement to support human immune health.

EpiCor production utilizes a proprietary process called MetaGen4™, a multi-stage fermentation and drying process. It contains both the yeast itself and the metabolites formed by the fermentation process.

Fermentation is simply the chemical conversion of sugars into ethanol. This process is well-known to produce alcoholic beverages, but it is also used in the leavening of bread and for the production of lactic acid in sour foods such as sauerkraut, yogurt, and pickled foods.

EpiCor and Immune Health

Studies indicate that EpiCor can support your immune system—including a reduction of symptoms resulting from seasonal challenges—and improve antioxidant protection capacity.

Clinical Support For EpiCor

In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study, participants who took EpiCor had fewer health complaints than the placebo group, which showed no changes. That data suggested that EpiCor supports the formation of healthy red blood cells, supports mucosal defense, and provides inflammatory-balancing activity.

Another randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial confirmed the immune-supporting benefits of EpiCor. Subjects taking EpiCor experienced reductions in the symptoms associated with seasonal immune complaints and experienced an overall shorter duration of symptoms compared to the placebo group.

The study associated with the initial discovery of EpiCor’s benefits compared the blood of 10 fermentation plant workers to age- and gender-matched controls. The results showed that the plant workers had significantly improved natural killer (NK) cell activity, higher killing efficiency of NK cells, higher levels of red blood cell intracellular glutathione, and lower levels of immune complexes. Lowered immune complexes results in less inflammation and tissue damage.

EpiCor’s antioxidant activity was verified by the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity assay (ORAC), which means extra protection in fighting off the free radicals that can compromise your overall health.
