PureDefense w/NAC contains a combination of EpiCor®, N-acetyl- l-cysteine (NAC), vitamins, zinc and herbal extracts designed to promote overall immune defense and provide enhanced support for upper respiratory health. EpiCor® is a fermentate of Saccharomyces cerevisiae containing various bioactive metabolites produced in a specialized fermentation process. These nutrient metabolites enhance immune cell production, including natural killer (NK) cells, B cells and T cells. NK cells are part of the body’s innate, or first-line, immune response. They respond more quickly than the adaptive immune system comprised of B cells and T cells. Once activated, natural killer cell activity peaks in as quickly as several hours, providing rapid support and wide-range immune defense.*

Natural killer cells are part of the body's innate, or first-line, immune response. They respond more quickly than the adaptive immune system comprised of B cells and T cells. Once activated, natural killer cell activity peaks in as quickly as several hours, providing rapid support and wide-range immune defense. EpiCor® is a fermentate of Saccharomyces cerevisiae containing various bioactive metabolites. These nutrient metabolites are produced in a specialized fermentation process and enhance immune cell production. In one cellular study, EpiCor® promoted natural killer cell activation, as well as that of B cells and T cells.1 In two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials, EpiCor® provided statistically significant support for upper respiratory tract health and overall immune health.2,3 A separate open label, in-house trial indicated a strong potential for EpiCor® supplementation to enhance secretory IgA levels after 30 days. These various actions demonstrate the ability of EpiCor® to address both innate and adaptive immune responses.4 NAC (n-acetyl-l-cysteine) promotes endogenous glutathione production for antioxidant protection and provides lung defense mechanisms for healthy respiratory function.5 In a randomized, double-blind trial involving mostly older individuals, NAC showed support for respiratory health.6 Quercetin and elderberry provide flavonoids that offer additional support for immune and respiratory function while vitamin C, vitamin D and zinc play important roles in immune cell activation.7,8,9,10‡
