Vitamin C and zinc are essential nutrients and play important roles in nutrition and maintenance of human health. Both are vital for the optimal functioning of the immune system. Inadequacy and clinical deficiency of vitamin C and/or zinc lead to impaired immune response.
Vitamin C has direct antioxidant capacity and contributes to the protection of cells from the damaging effects of endogenously produced or exogenous reactive oxygen radicals and reactive nitrogen species, e.g. during immune activation.
Zinc is known to play a central role in the immune system, and zinc-deficient persons experience increased susceptibility to a variety of pathogens.
Vitamin D is an important part of the immune system. Some studies have shown that there is a link between vitamin D levels and the risk of getting influenza. People who have low vitamin D levels may have a higher chance of developing influenza. Not many studies have been done about treating influenza with vitamin D, but some research has shown a relationship between higher levels of vitamin D and shorter duration of the influenza infection.
Selenium is important for initiating immunity, but they are also involved in regulating excessive immune responses and chronic inflammation.
The story of Epicor®
In 1998, factory employees in Diamnod V, who worked directly with the yeast culture, noticed that over the past years they were not using much sick time. Once management looked into this development, they confirmed that the factory workers had unusually low sick leave rates. Diamond V commissioned a pilot study comparing the factory to the office workers to determine if its yeast culture was having a beneficial effect on the human immune system. The results showed that they had a stronger immune system by increased Natural Killer cell activity, higher levels of secretory IgA (sIgA) and lower levels of pro-inflammatory complexes compared to office workers that did not come in contact with the yeast culture. Further investigations leads to the invention of Epicor and Diamod V is today Embria Health Science.

Immune Boost FAQs:
Q: Why should I take Vitamin C?
A: Vitamin C is a well-known antioxidant, which helps keep damaging free radicals that damage cells. It is highly concentrated in immune cells and is consumed quickly during an infection. Vitamin C can help shorten the duration of colds.
Q: How much vitamin D can I take?
A: The UL (Tolerable Upper Intake Levels) for adults including pregnant and lactating women was set at 100 µg/day. The UL for ages 11-17 years was adapted to 100 µg/day, considering that owing to phases of rapid bone formation and growth this age group is unlikely to have a lower tolerance for vitamin D compared to adults. The same applies also to children aged 1-10 years, but taking into account their smaller body size, a UL of 50 µg/day is proposed.
Q: What is Epicor?
A: EpiCor is a unique and natural fermentation ingredient comprised of dozens of compounds and metabolites that, according to Embria Health Science, work together to help strengthen your immune system by balancing immune response.
