Every year in July, the Des Moines Register newspaper puts on the Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa, or RAGBRAI. The ride started 40 years ago, with just a few dozen cyclists starting at the banks of the Missouri River and ending a week later at the Mississippi.
It has now grown to nearly 9,000 biking enthusiasts from around the world and would be much larger if registration caps weren’t necessary to keep the event manageable. This year, ProActive Health Products, a manufacturer of nutritional supplements containing EpiCor, the immune balancing ingredient, is sponsoring several riders and providing EpiCor soft chew samples–and water!!– to riders as they travel through Cedar Rapids, IA. So stop by their tent…space 22 on the 3rd Avenue Bridge, to get some samples, even if you’re not a biker.
For hardcore cyclists biking across Iowa in the heat of the summer, EpiCor is perfect. It supports immune health, which can be compromised by hours of intensive exertion, e.g. going up steep rural Iowa hills in 100-degree afternoon heat. It can reduce duration and severity of seasonal allergy symptoms, which are all too prevalent among Iowa’s pollinating corn fields
Immune health. It isn’t just for cold and flu in the winter. It’s a year-round thing, and EpiCor is a year-round immune health asset.
