EpiCor immune ingredient passes bioavailability test

Related tags Bacteria Immune system Epicor

Ingredient firm Embria Health Sciences said independent testing for its EpiCor immune health ingredient has confirmed antioxidant bioavailability and quality standards.

The Certified Bioavailable Antioxidants Program from NIS Labs tested EpiCor via its CAP-e assay (Cell-based Antioxidnat Protection in Erthrocytes), which evaluates the antioxidant potential of products.

"While many natural products contain antioxidant properties, this CAP- e certification gives manufacturers the assurance that EpiCor's antioxidant properties are actually benefitting people, as a series of studies found them to enter into and protect live cells,"​ explained Larry Robinson, PhD, vice president of scientific affairs at Embria.

EpiCor is a yeast fermentate and a natural high-metabolite immunogen reported to have the antioxidant (ORAC) potency three times that of any known fruit. It is said to cause a four-fold increase in the activity of the 'natural killer' cells that guard the immune system.
