Cor Defence features EpiCor, a revolutionary dietary ingredient that is creating an entirely new category of immune health products. Not an herb, vitamin, or mushroom, it is a remarkable all-natural yeast-based substance that, when taken every day, can help bring the functioning of your immune system to a whole new level! 

Product Notes:

A non-drowsy, doctor-recommended antioxidant, EpiCor has been found to help reduce both the incidence and duration of cold and flu symptoms.

In addition to EpiCor, Cor Defence from Genestra also includes several other immune-enhancing ingredients : Vitamin C, as a great source of antioxidants; Vitamin D, which helps regulate the immune system; Elderberry, a traditional cold and flu treatment; and Zinc, to stimulate the immune system's production of lymphocytes and increase their phagocytic activities.

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.

Cor 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 defence 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. Genestra Cor Defence has been issued Natural Product Number 80049459 by Health Canada.
