According to them: EpiCor is an all-natural nutritional health ingredient used in dietary supplements that helps support the immune system. It is a unique, complex ingredient comprised of protein, fiber, vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, and other metabolites. Taken daily, EpiCor has been shown to be a safe and effective way to help support immune health and maintain wellness. Unlike many other immune health ingredients on the market, EpiCor does not stimulate or "boost" the body's immune system; it balances it. A balanced immune system makes the appropriate response at the right time. EpiCor is clinically proven to be a safe and effective way to help support immune health for year-round health and wellness. As with most things in life, balance is best.
FYI: it contains no salt, wheat, gluten, corn, soy protein, preservatives, artificial coloring, or flavoring.
What I have to say: I added it into my morning vitamin/supplement routine about a month ago, and I haven't gotten sick yet. End of story. I really have no other way to review this product. Is it to thank for keeping me healthy? Maybe, maybe not. But I repeat: I have avoided the flu. And even the Governor of our next door neighbor, Massachusetts, declared a state of emergency because of the flu. I mean, everyone is sick. Except for me. Which, for this girl, is a flipping miracle. Thus, I'm going to continue taking it, and add this into the regular Run Faster Mommy daily routine.
Here is the best part: my friends at EpiCor have offered up an EPIC giveaway to one lucky reader: 5 cases of FRS Healthy Defense (containing EpiCor) for one person, a prize worth over $150! (quite frankly, I'm jealous. I want some!)
