Today I received a shipment of vitamins from iHerb and inside the box was a flyer on EpiCor.
It sounds like a remarkable immune booster similar to beta glucans.
It's made from yeast, yet it's said to be extremely effective against candida.
I couldn't cut & paste it, so you'll have to click EpiCor

How Does NSI� EpiCor� High Metabolite Immunogens work?
EpiCor� is a revolutionary dietary supplement that supports immune health. Not a vitamin, herb or mushroom, EpiCor� is derived from a fermented yeast medium through a proprietary, multi-stage fermentation and drying process. It's been found to be a high-metabolite immunogen that nourishes the immune system to help strengthen resistance and maintain wellness.
EpiCor� has been demonstrated to:
- Deliver three times the antioxidant power of any known fruit. An oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) test showed that EpiCor� has a value of 450 to 650, which is nearly three times the score of the highest-ORAC-value food, black raspberries, which score 164.
- Activate natural killer cells. Natural killer (NK) cells are the body's first line of defense against foreign invaders. They destroy harmful cells by producing powerful chemical substances when they come in contact with them. EpiCor� has been shown to cause a four-fold increase in the activity of NK cells in an in-vitro study¹.
- Activate human B cells. B cells are considered part of the "memory" of the immune system. If a foreign invader tries to enter the body twice, B cells that make the right antibody are ready for it. EpiCor� has been shown to significantly activate human B cells in a laboratory study².
- Strengthen the mucosal immune barrier. Mucous membranes, such as those that line the mouth and stomach, act as a physical barrier that trap foreign invaders. Individuals exposed to the yeast culture that makes up EpiCor� were shown to have high levels of IgA, an indicator of mucosal barrier strength.
