What exactly is Epicor, the unique ingredient found in Immuno Armour?

Epicor is a whole food yeast fermentate that can be added to many dietary supplements and functional food products.

In other words, it acts like a multivitamin for your immune system.

What makes Immuno Armour a “whole food”?

A whole food is something healthy found in nature that is minimally processed. Applesauce, simply baked and pureed apples without any additives, would be considered a whole food. Immuno Armour is made using a natural, safe yeast called Saccharomyces cerevisiae that goes through a fermentation process. Fermentation is a process that happens naturally in nature. During Immuno Armour’s fermentation process, S. cerevisiae cells produce beneficial metabolites. This high-metabolite, nutritious broth is then gently dried down to a powder – never solvents, extractions, or other processing that removes the diverse benefits of Epicor.

What does Immuno Armour do?

Seven published human clinical trials, as well as animal and cellular studies have shown that Immuno Armour supports a strong immune system that appropriately responds to daily challenges. Immuno Armour has also been shown to support year-round respiratory health.* Immuno Armour helps build a strong immune system by significantly increasing Natural Killer Cell activity and antioxidant protection within hours of consumption and over time helps increase sIgA antibodies, which are important for mucosal health.
