WHAT IS EPICOR® POSTBIOTIC?
EpiCor® postbiotic is a whole food fermentate made using yeast (“Saccharomyces cerevisiae”) that goes through a closely held trade secret fermentation and drying processes. This fermentation process makes a unique fingerprint of metabolites including proteins, polyphenols, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, polysaccharides, fiber, and other nutrients.
Over a dozen published studies show EpiCor® postbiotic helps to support your immune system and modulate the gut microbiota. It is found in some of the most well-known health and wellness supplement brands. When taken daily, EpiCor® postbiotic has been shown to be a safe and effective way to help people live more healthy days.TM
Made in the USA, EpiCor® postbiotic is Non-GMO Project Verified,
Vegan/Vegetarian, OU Kosher, Halal, Gluten Free & BSE/TSE Free
HOW IT WORKS
Made through a natural fermentation process, EpiCor® postbiotic supports a healthy gut microbiome which, as ongoing research suggests, helps to support a healthy immune system. It’s rich with metabolites and when taken daily acts like a vitamin for your immune system.TM
HOW’S IT MADE?
Made in the USA, EpiCor® postbiotic starts with baker’s yeast — a safe, natural microorganism found throughout nature and used for thousands of years to make beer, wine, bread, and other food. EpiCor® postbiotic’s specialized process begins with the yeast being deprived of oxygen, which causes them to produce a unique metabolite fingerprint consisting of proteins, peptides, antioxidants, polyphenols, organic acids, nucleotides, polysaccharides (1-3 1-6, beta glucans), and mannans.
In the final production step the whole fermentation broth is gently dried to a powder. We use a proprietary and gentle drying process that makes the yeast no longer active and captures a complex array of metabolites created during fermentation. The dehydrated whole food fermentate is then milled to a fine powder and packaged within containers designed to protect it during storage and handling. The entire process is done under strict current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) and processing guidelines to ensure a consistently high quality and safe material.
Following extensive safety and identity testing, the end result is EpiCor® postbiotic – a whole food yeast fermentate that helps support the immune system and positively modulate the gut microbiome.
