Epicor Supplement by Healthy Origins
Some of the world’s greatest inventions are stumbled upon by accident. Such is the story of EpiCor, a revolutionary new dietary ingredient which significantly strengthens the body’s immune function.
EpiCor is an all-natural, high metabolite immunogen that nourishes the body’s immune system to strengthen resistance and maintain wellness. Manufactured through a proprietary, multi-stage fermentation and drying process, antimicrobial capsules, EpiCor delivers three times the antioxidant power of any known fruit.
How Epicor works
Immune Armor, Antioxidant Power and Gut Health
Unlike other immune ingredients, EpiCor strengthens your body’s immune defenses in many ways. It helps reinforce your first and second lines of active defense, increases antioxidant protection and also may help support good gut health. What other immune ingredient can do all that?*
Immune Armor: First and Second lines of Defense
First Line of Defense. The EpiCor supplement strengthens a first line of active defense by helping increase secretory immunoglobin A (sIgA) in saliva.* sIgA is the primary antibody found in mucus, tears, saliva, mother’s milk and other areas(i). When pathogens get past your skin, eyes, mouth and other mucus membranes, sIgA is there to help by trapping bacteria before they cause harm(ii). So, what happens when the first line gets breached? That is when a second line of defense comes in.
Second Line of Defense. EpiCor strengthens a second line of active defense by helping increase Natural Killer (NK) cell activity.* NK cells are a type of white blood cell circulating in our blood and organs that are fast and effective in seeking out and destroying infected cells at the initial occurrence(iii). NK cells are called “natural killer” because they don’t need to be activated by other cells to differentiate “good” cells from “bad” cells(vi). This makes them much quicker to respond to keep your body healthy.
Antioxidants circulate in your blood and tissues and help protect from cellular oxidative damage, which may affect how your immune system works over time(v). EpiCor helps strengthen your immune defenses by increasing antioxidant power in as little as two hours.*
Most people don’t know that around 70% of your immune cells are actually found your gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Fewer still know how important a role beneficial bacteria play in proper immune function. Prebiotics are foods that nourish the beneficial bacteria, like bifidobacteria and lactobacilli, in your GI tract. Prebiotics help the good bacteria grow and multiply so your gut stays healthy. EpiCor has been shown to act like a prebiotic in sophisticated digestive system models.*
High Metabolite Immunogen*: Nutrient Make-up
Production of EpiCor® utilizes the common and harmless bakers or brewers yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae in a patented process called MetaGen4™, a multi-stage fermentation and drying process. It differs from other yeast products in that it contains both the yeast itself as well as the metabolites or “nutrilites” formed by the fermentation process, which are present in the media.1 Together the media containing the metabolites and the yeast are dried to form EpiCor®. Analysis of EpiCor® reveals that it contains a mixture of natural polyphenols, phytosterols, beta-glucans, mannan oligosaccharides, fiber, trace amounts of B vitamins and minerals, as well as a host of other nutritional compounds.1,2
