On Monday, April 11 Larry Robinson, Ph.D., VP of scientific affairs for Embria® Health Sciences<http://www.embriahealth.com/>, will present the scientific poster
“Yeast-based fermentate supplementation significantly reduces inflammation in two separate in vivo models” in the poster session “Immune Modulating Nutraceuticals and Functional Foods” as part of the FASEB Experimental Biology Annual
Meeting <http://experimentalbiology.org/content/default.aspx> in Washington, DC. From 12:45 to 2:45 p.m. in Exhibit Hall ABC of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Dr. Robinson will be on-hand to discuss research on the award winning, year-round immune health ingredient, EpiCor, which has been found to significantly reduce inflammation. Additionally, the poster will be on display for viewing from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday.
The poster also references three published, double blind, placebo-controlled, randomized trials of EpiCor that have demonstrated a consistent ability to function as an immune modulating agent by significantly reducing common cold/flu-like and allergic rhinitis symptoms.
In 2010, EpiCor was the first immune health ingredient to receive the SupplySide West Scientific Excellence Award, in recognition of the compelling clinical studies published in peer-reviewed publications such as the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, Advances in Therapy and Urologic Nursing.
