What is EpiCor®?

EpiCor is an all-natural nutritional dietary health supplement that helps support the immune system. It is a complex, nutrient-rich dried yeast fermentate (Saccharomyes cerevisiate) comprised of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants. Taken daily, EpiCor®has been shown to be a safe and effective way to help support immune health and maintain wellness.

EpiCor®and Immune Balance

Unlike many other immune health supplements on the market, EpiCor®does not stimulate or "boost" the body's immune system; it balances it. EpiCor®works in a unique way to; "educate" the immune system so that it works efficiently to provide the proper immune response at the right time. A balanced immune system makes the appropriate response at the right time. Too great an immune response can lead to allergies or inflammation. Alternatively, an immune system that is suppressed is not working optimally; and this increases the chances that the body will succumb to infection, resulting in sickness. As with most things in life, balance is best.

 

Immune Balance and Wellness

When you're stressed your immune system is out of balance, which can result in a host of health issues: 

Since a constantly on-the-go lifestyle doesn't lend itself to getting proper nutrition and sleep, it's sometimes necessary to use a nutritional dietary health supplement. EpiCor® is clinically proven to be a safe and effective way to help support immune health for year-round health and wellness.

How EpiCor® Works

Supporting the body at the first level of immune defense, the innate immune system or mucosal barrier, EpiCor® activates Natural Killer (NK) cells to help ward off foreign invaders. For invaders that work their way past this first line of defense, research shows that EpiCor® also works further down the line when the adaptive immune system kicks in by activating B cells, which support antibody production specific to the invading pathogen. EpiCor® is also a powerful antioxidant that further supports a healthy body by scavenging dangerous free radicals. Additionally, EpiCor® possesses significant anti-inflammatory activity.

Research Overview:

Research to date demonstrates that EpiCor® works to enhance innate immunity by:

Extensive safety studies performed on EpiCor® confirm that it is non-toxic, non-mutagenic, non-mitogenic, non-cytotoxic and pesticide free. This means that EpiCor® is safe to take on an ongoing, daily basis. These studies also support that EpiCor® does not affect drug-metabolizing enzymes, which indicate that interaction is unlikely between EpiCor® and over-the-counter and prescription drugs. 

EpiCor® is the perfect choice for consumers looking for a way to stay healthy year round. EpiCor® is a safe, effective addition to any nutritional dietary supplement program.

Health Care Professionals are dedicated to helping their patients maintain good health. They are acutely aware that the human immune system is constantly challenged by factors such as environmental pollution, day-to-day stress, poor dietary choices and even the normal ageing process. Because what affects the body also affects immune health: a wide variety of conditions can be linked to an immune system that is not working optimally, such as: allergies, weakened stress defenses, inflammation, weight gain, digestive problems, sleep issues, and premature ageing.

EpiCor® can help. While many other immune health products “boost” or stimulate the immune system, EpiCor® is in a category all its own because it “balances” immune response for optimal performance. Research shows that EpiCor® supports the function of both the innate and adaptive immune systems. It also works to “educate” the immune system by promoting the proper immune response when the body is being inappropriately attacked, as in the case with allergies. EpiCor® is also a powerful anti-oxidant with an ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity) value of 52,500/100g, so it has additional health benefits as a free radical scavenger. Additionally, research supports that EpiCor® has anti-inflammatory properties.

Supported by years of research and development, EpiCor® is a unique product and is a valuable supplement for those interested in supporting their immune health. Extensive characterization, ORAC, in vitro, toxicology, mutagenicity and human safety and efficacy studies ensure that EpiCor® is safe and effective. Health care professionals can feel confident in recommending EpiCor® Plus to their patients.

Immune Balance includes Vitamin C, A, D3

Vitamin C: due to its antioxidant properties, enhances immune function, protecting all tissues in the body including the brain and spinal cord from damage by free radicals and toxins.

Vitamin A: protects against infections in nose, throat, lungs, digestive tract and urinary tract.

Vitamin D3: when used with Vitamin A, Vitamin D3 deduces the incidence & severity of common colds

Absorption Dynamics:

The small intestine is the site where most nutrients from ingested food are absorbed. The absorbed substances are transported via the blood vessels to different organs of the body where they are used to build complex substances such as the proteins and enzymes required by our body. To assure that the fragile nutrients are not affected by the strong acids in the stomach, Vitex employs the new DRcaps technology. These special capsules resist the acid environment of the stomach and will dissolve only in the higher pH of the small intestine.

Immune Balance is provided in the new DRcaps: DRcaps enable the nutrients to pass through the stomach unchanged and be absorbed in the small intestine. This assures maximum effectiveness of these micronutrients.

DRcaps have many advantages over the traditional enteric coating of tablets and capsules. This new technology eliminates the costly enteric coating process which requires the use of solvents and heat which can have destructive effect on the active ingredients in the formula.

DRcaps are resistant to moisture and provide a more precise and consistent dissolution rate compared to traditional enteric coated capsules or tablets.

NOTE: For maximum benefit, take the SOURCE Optimum and VEGAN Omega 3-6-9 to provide the body with optimum levels of other essential nutrients necessary to help maintain long term good health.
