Constipation and gastrointestinal (GI) discomfort symptoms such as bloating can be common among otherwise healthy individuals. Despite the recognized contribution of the gut microbiome to this pathology, little is known about which groups of microorganisms play a role in constipation and GI discomfort. This Whitepaper by Embria Health Sciences examines how EpiCor, a yeast fermentate, may interact with the digestive tract to help support a healthy microbiome.

  • EpiCor’s established immune health benefits may derive from its interaction with the gut.
  • Certain structure/function claims can be supported based on the growing body of research.
  • EpiCor has demonstrated prebiotic-like properties by increasing total short-chain fatty acids.
