CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, August 7, 2006 --- Embria(tm) Health Sciences, a raw material manufacturer of science-backed natural ingredients for the human nutrition market, today updated the education section of its Web site, www.embriahealth.com, with a literary excerpt from the new book, "Infection Protection: Pandemic," published by the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M).
Book authors, Ronald Klatz, M.D., D.O. and Robert Goldman, M.D., Ph.D., D.O., FAASP, named Embria's high metabolite immunogen ingredient, EpiCor, as one of the top 10 available natural immune enhancers. Noting EpiCor's high levels of nutritional metabolites and exceptionally powerful antioxidant and immune modulating activity, the authors discussed the research surrounding the ingredient's beneficial properties, including:
-- Inhibits antimicrobial activity
-- Improves CD4/CD8 T-cell ratio
-- Activates natural killer (NK) cells
-- Increases levels of salicary Secretory IgA (sIgA)
-- Reduces interferon-gamma levels
"It is an honor for EpiCor's potential for health protection and immune system maintenance to be acknowledged by such well-known authors as Drs. Klatz and Goldman," said Paul Faganel, Embria Health Sciences president. "We see this book excerpt as an important addition of third-party knowledge to our site's education section."
In the book, the mineral selenium was also listed amongst the top 10 available immune enhancers. Embria's highly-bioavailable, organic, selenium yeast ingredient, eXselen(tm), is backed by 15 years of research and shows consistently high levels of selenomethionine – the preferred form of selenium known for its rapid and efficient absorption by the human body.
EpiCor is an all-natural, high-metabolite immunogen that nourishes the body's immune system to strengthen resistance and maintain wellness. It is manufactured through a proprietary, multi-stage fermentation and drying process called MetaGen4(tm), which produces vital metabolites that deliver nutritional benefits and support increased bioavailability. EpiCor is self-determined GRAS status and is safe for everyday use.
Embria Health Sciences combines science and nature to bring high- quality, research-based natural ingredients to the global human nutrition market. Embria's key products are manufactured using a proprietary technology, which produces vital metabolites that deliver nutritional benefits and support increased bioavailability. Embria holds "Nutrition Business Journal's" 2005 product merit award for its selenium ingredient, eXselen.
