Immune balance will be the focus of Embria(R) Health Sciences' VendorWorks presentation, "The Future of the Immune Health Category Lies in the Balance," at the SupplySide West trade show in Las Vegas. On Thursday, November 12 from 12:30 to 1:20 p.m. in the Exhibit Hall of the Venetian and Sands Expo, Larry Robinson, Ph.D., Embria's vice president of scientific affairs, and Cheryl Sturm, director of marketing, will discuss both the health and sales benefits of the all-natural immune-balancing supplement EpiCor(R).
Robinson and Sturm will review the current state of the immune health market and discuss how manufacturers and consumers of dietary supplements can benefit from products that work not just during the 3- month cold and flu season, but year-round to keep immune systems – and bottom lines – healthy. Attendees will also hear the results of the just-published study on EpiCor's reduction of allergy symptoms.
