What is EpiCor?
EpiCor is a fermented form of a species of yeast called Saccharaomyces cerevisiae, which is the main source of nutritional yeast and yeast extract. Also known as Dried Yeast Fermentate and Brewer’s Yeast, this microscopic unicellular fungi is often used in commercial food products and alcoholic fermentation. This yeast is rich in amino acids, vitamins, and enzymes that help boost your immune system and support your health all year round.
It’s not an herb, vitamin, or mushroom. This all-natural, high-metabolite immunogen has been shown to promote the body’s natural defense mechanisms and balance the body’s inflammatory response*.
Clinical Support for EpiCor
In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study, participants who took EpiCor had better immune function than the placebo group, which showed no changes. That data suggested that EpiCor supports the formation of healthy red blood cells, supports mucosal defense, and provides inflammatory-balancing activity*.
The study associated with the initial discovery of EpiCor’s benefits compared the blood of 10 fermentation plant workers to age- and gender-matched controls. The results showed that the plant workers had significantly improved natural killer (NK) cell activity, higher killing efficiency of NK cells, higher levels of red blood cell intracellular glutathione, and lower levels of immune complexes. Lowered immune complexes results in more balanced inflammation.
EpiCor’s antioxidant activity was verified by the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity assay (ORAC), which means extra protection in fighting off the free radicals that can compromise your overall health.

A rare leukemia
In 2008 a LGL (a rare leukemia ) was diagnosed to my husband. The followed treatment, based on immunosuppressors and chemotherapy was painful. After treatment, the physician expected that he could maintain the values of the white blood cells stabilized more or less for a year, or a yaer and a half. We heard about Epicor through a friend and my husband started taking it. In September 2013 it will make 4 years that he is taking Epicor, and he didn't need to repeat the chemotherapy treatment. His blood values are getting better and better. Although we can not say scientifically that Epicor was responsible for these results, we have a deep conviction that it is so.
