Default EpiCor vs. Colds and Flu

The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial was conducted during an acute 12-week period of the year for cold and flu seasonal symptoms. In this study, 116 participants who had recently been vaccinated against seasonal flu (influenza) received daily supplementation with 500 mg of EpiCor or placebo.

Extensive quantitative and qualitative data showed that the participants receiving EpiCor had significantly fewer cold and flu symptoms and significantly shorter duration of symptoms as compared to those taking a placebo. Placed in a health care context wherein professionals have increased contact with unhealthy patients, this translates into approximately 32 percent fewer annual sick days.

Based on these encouraging results, the study's lead author, Mark Moyad, MD, MPH, of the University of Michigan, suggests that future studies focus on the use of EpiCor as a potential single agent to reduce cold- and flu-like symptoms in healthy individuals who have not received any prior flu vaccination.

"This is the largest randomized trial to examine the impact of a fermented yeast product on cold- and flu-like symptoms ever conducted," said Larry Robinson, Ph.D., a co-author of the study and vice president of scientific affairs, Embria Health Sciences.

"If EpiCor can significantly reduce the incidence and duration of colds and flu, imagine the significance this could have on healthcare costs, sick days and lost revenue�in addition to the more obvious impact on people�s overall health."

Mari is on a distinguished road

Dr. David Williams in his newsletter suggests going back to the original product (yeast supplement for animals) and just purchase a 50# bag from a veterinarian and have enough for you, your family and all your relatives and friends for several years.

Since this is a bit difficult for most of us, Global Light has done it for us. They have a 1.2# container of the loose product--about a 5 month supply--for $22.

Another of my newsletters says it takes about 3 to 4 months to see the full protective effects of Epicor.
