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.

EpiCor Cold & Flu Immune Defence 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.

This product has been issued Natural Product Number 80040361 by Health Canada, and is being distributed by Emerald Health Naturals.
