Postbiotic Immune Formula features EpiCor, a revolutionary dietary ingredient that is creating an entirely new category of immune health products.

Product Notes:

Doctor Recommended * Clinically Studied

A non-drowsy, doctor-recommended antioxidant, EpiCor has been found to help reduce both the incidence and duration of cold and flu symptoms. This formula also includes European elderberry, a traditional natural remedy for relieving cold, flu, and fever symptoms, as well as zinc, whose immune enhancing properties are becoming more in demand than ever.

About EpiCor

EpiCor can help strengthen and maintain a healthy immune response to daily challenges.

The active ingredient in EpiCor is naturally derived from the inner cell walls of baker's or brewer's yeast, which can increase natural killer (NK) cell activity fourfold when ingested. A strong immune system can help keep you from missing training, important events, or just everyday life.

Having a strong and healthy immune system is essential for good health. Both wellness and disease begin there. The difference between a sick person and a well person isn't necessarily what each has been exposed to, but rather how well your immune system is functioning. EpiCor can help provide every day immune protection. Scientific studies have shown that EpiCor may significantly strengthen your body's immune function.

Certified Naturals Postbiotic Immune Formula is a unique dietary supplement designed specifically to help promote a healthy immune system. Research has shown that EpiCor:

* Helps to support the mucosal immune system, an important first line of defense against invaders; and,
* Activates immune cells such as T-lymphocytes, B-cells, and natural killer (NK) cells as well as produces an anti-inflammatory effect.

EpiCor Canada - Developed by Embria Health Sciences, EpiCor is an ingredient found in a number of other formulas (primarily sold in the USA) that are not approved for sale in Canada. This Certified Naturals product has been issued Natural Product Number 80107967 by Health Canada.


EpiCor Fermented Yeast with Elderberry & Zinc

A healthy lifestyle can feel like a juggling act. While you're busy getting things done, taking care of your body often seems like another chore. On top of exercising and staying hydrated, you're trying to eat enough leafy greens and whole grains since they're said to be great for your gut. But what happens in your body that makes those foods so healthy?

Meet the microbiome - a complex ecosystem made up of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa. Imagine your gut is a city where each microorganism has their own unique function. When it comes to digestive and immune health, the beneficial bacteria in your gut play a critical role because of the goods they create. They are the factories of your gut. Through the process of fermentation they use high fibre foods such as leafy greens as fuel in order to produce goods called metabolites that your body can use to support well-being and immune health.

There are a few ways you can support your gut to make those metabolites your body needs. You can take prebiotics which help fuel the factories or add more factories by taking probiotics. But what if you could fast track the process and just deliver those goods directly to your gut? Meet postbiotics. Fermented outside the body, EpiCor is a postbiotic ingredient with a unique fingerprint of metabolites whose beneficial effect for your immune and gut health have been shown in more than twelve published studies. You're busy enough, with EpiCor you can check gut and immune health off your to-do list.
