FLORASSIST Immune & Nasal Defense
30 vegetarian capsules | Item Catalogue Number: 02208
Our immune system is our body’s built-in line of defense. Coincidentally, it also reacts to harmless things in your environment, such as pollen. EpiCor®, a yeast fermentate and L. rhamnosus CRL1505, a probiotic strain, encourage multiple aspects of a healthy immune response, so you’re ready for whatever the world has for you.
EpiCor® was discovered when factory workers at a yeast fermentation plant had better work attendance than their office counterparts.

- Encourages the body’s healthy immune response
- Promotes production of immunoglobulin A (IgA), an essential part of your body’s immune defences
- Supports healthy nasal airflow and response to things in your environment, such as pollen
- Unique formulation supports healthy eye and skin comfort
FLORASSIST® Immune Defence
Serendipitous discovery leads to EpiCor®
Sometimes, scientific discoveries happen when you least expect it. Factory workers at a yeast fermentation plant were taking fewer days than their office counterparts. A study found that those working on the factory floor had higher levels of secretory IgA and natural killer cell activity than those working in a cubicle. Secretory IgA and natural killer cells are both essential parts of your healthy immune system.
We want our immune system to produce immunoglobulin A (IgA) in order to help protect us. At the same time, our immune system should ignore harmless things in our environment, otherwise it may produce an excess of histamine – a compound that affects airflow in nasal passages.
So to be ready for any test, you need to promote a healthy immune response to the world around you. That’s where FLORASSIST® Immune & Nasal comes in.
EpiCor® S. cerevisiae (from Brewer’s Yeast)
EpiCor® is a fermentate of S. cerevisiae, an organism more commonly known as brewer’s yeast. Discovered serendipitously, EpiCor® has now been the subject of a half-dozen clinical studies. EpiCor® helps promote the body’s healthy immune response (what your immune system is there for). Interestingly enough, EpiCor® also helps your immune system when it comes to harmless things in your environment, such as pollen.
In one study, subjects took either 500 mg of EpiCor® a day or a placebo for five weeks. Subjects in the EpiCor® group who normally experienced an immune response to changes in their environment reported none of those same effects while taking EpiCor®. In two other studies, subjects receiving EpiCor® reported lessened duration and response to immune challenge compared to placebo.
EpiCor® appears to work by promoting natural killer cell activity as well as the production of secretory IgA – two little-known but absolutely essential parts of your body’s immune defences. In one study, subjects taking 500 mg of EpiCor® a day for 8 weeks saw an increase in secretory IgA. In another study, EpiCor® increased markers of natural killer cell activity – after just a single 500 mg dose.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus CRL1505
Lactobacillus rhamnosus CRL1505 is a special probiotic strain isolated from goat’s milk. Discovered in northwestern Argentina, L. rhamnosus CRL1505 helps encourage a healthy immune response – so much so that it is currently given to over 300,000 school children every year in Argentina for this reason.
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial involving hundreds of Argentinian school children, subjects receiving L. rhamnosus 5 days a week for 6 months had nearly fifty-percent less recorded instances of immune challenge compared to those taking a placebo. This same study found that the L. rhamnosus group also had 47% higher levels of secretory IgA, which supports a healthy immune response.
