Healthy Origins is a distributor of a finished immune-balancing dietary supplement containing EpiCor.
Manufactured by Embria Health Sciences, www.embriahealth.com, EpiCor is an all-natural, high-metabolite immunogen designed to modulate and balance the human immune system. This dried, complex fermentation product is derived from a proprietary process consisting of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and the medium in which it is grown and is composed of metabolites, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants. Recent clinical studies show EpiCor to possess significant anti-inflammatory activity, decrease the incidence of cold and flu by 21 percent and activate crucial defense cells (Natural Killer, T-, and B-cells). Researched to be safe for ongoing use, EpiCor is non-toxic, free of contraindications, non-mutagenic and has self-affirmed GRAS status from an expert panel comprised of members with extensive Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and National Institute of Health (NIH) experience. Clinical research on EpiCor has been presented at the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) Conference and the American College of Nutrition
