Embria Health Sciences combines science and nature to bring high-quality, research-based natural ingredients to the global human nutrition market. Embria’s flagship ingredient, EpiCor®, is an all-natural product that helps the body balance the immune system. Embria Health Sciences has successfully completed the NDI process for EpiCor with a clean acknowledgement letter for all populations, in all forms, and for daily use. Embria Health Sciences has also been awarded National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) GMP registration certification.
Manufactured using a proprietary technology, EpiCor contains protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and other metabolites that deliver nutritional benefits to support immune health. EpiCor’s immune-balancing properties provide year-round support by helping the body boost or suppress immune response as needed. In addition to significantly increasing NK cell activation, human B cells and levels of salivary secretory IgA, EpiCor also supports immune health by demonstrating a prebiotic-like effect.
EpiCor was the first immune health ingredient to receive the SupplySide West Scientific Excellence Award, in recognition of compelling clinical studies published in peer-reviewed publications such as the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, Advances in Therapy and Urologic Nursing, and Journal of Medicinal Food. Embria Health Sciences also recently won Nutrition Business Journal’s award in the Investment in the Future category, for their partnership with the City of Ankeny in lowering the incidence of colds and flus by offering EpiCor as part of their employee wellness program.
Researched to be safe, EpiCor is certified as kosher by the Orthodox Union, meets government standards for inclusion in gluten-free products, and is produced using materials sourced in the Americas. EpiCor holds a GRAS designation at levels significantly above the intake shown to have immune health benefits, giving functional and fortified food and beverage manufacturers the opportunity to meet consumer demand for safe and effective immune balancing products. As a nutritional dietary supplement, EpiCor is suitable for use in most product application formats including: capsules, tablets, soft gels, gummies, lozenges, chewing gum, nutritional bars, ready-to-drink beverages, and more.
