A blogger in Western Michigan is in the middle of a 2-month EpiCor challenge. She’s taking EpiCor in the middle of flu and winter crud season. And she’s a great candidate for testing EpiCor: a teacher (around sick kids all day) and a mom with kids in daycare (more sick kids). And, as she states, [...]

It’s a great development because people can now see on product labels that EpiCor is much more than just “supporting a healthy immune system,” which [...]
A New York times piece this past week discusses the possibility of continuous inflammation–the result of an unbalanced aggressive immune function – as a potential contributor or even cause for autism in newborns.
