EpiCor was discovered in a factory that produced yeast. When management realized that factory employees were hardly using any sick leave and had lower health care claims when compared to other companies of a similar size and region, they started to investigate.

When management realized that factory employees were hardly using any sick leave and had lower health care claims when compared to other companies of a similar size and region, they started to investigate. After years of clinical research, EpiCor was born.
EpiCor is a whole food fermentate, which is a natural ingredient rich in proteins, fibers, amino acids, vitamins, polyphenols, beta glucans, and more healthy nutrients. It’s no secret that whole foods are better for you than processed foods – since they haven’t been heavily refined, whole foods are packed with healthful nutrients from the earth. Because it’s made from whole foods, EpiCor is minimally processed and refined to ensure none of the immune-supporting nutrients are lost during the production processed.
EpiCor fermentate is made using a natural yeast. During fermentation, microorganism cells are deprived of oxygen – a process that causes the cells to release immune-supporting compounds like antioxidants and polyphenols.
In clinical trials (double-blind, placebo-controlled pilot studies), EpiCor has been shown to do several things to help your immune system. First, it can increase the levels of slgA in your saliva. This antibody, found in your eyes, nose, and mouth, helps to trap pathogens before they get a chance to invade the mucous membranes and potentially cause illness.
EpiCor also contains bioavailable antioxidants, which have been shown to increase natural killer (NK) cell counts as soon as two hours after consumption. NK cells are a type of white blood cell that are incredibly important to immune functions. They’re special in that they have the ability to find and kill cells infected with viruses.
Through rigorous research and evidence-based results, EpiCor has become a staple of immune supplements. As a natural, effective and clean ingredient, EpiCor stands alone. When it comes to supporting immune health, EpiCor is a must-have ingredient.
