I heard something on the news the other day that didn’t sit too well with my conscious.
Apparently, in 2012 our county suffered the highest total reported cases of the flu in past five years and the numbers keep rising! Every cold and flu seasons seems to accelerate, with no signs of relief. Scary!
I’d like to think I live a notable healthy life. I take my vitamins, I drink copious amounts of water, I eat a healthy diet, I get ample sleep, I work out regularly, and I wash my hands frequently. I do all of the “right” things to keep my immune system functioning properly; however, I am still just as susceptible to pick up germs as the next person. Remember my recent epidemic when I returned from my Chicago trip last month?
I had the flu this year, and IT. WAS. AWFUL! I don’t get sick often, but when I do, it’s usually quite an ordeal.
After that, I knew I never wanted to get sick again, and if I had any control over it, that would sound perfect. But again, I’m not immune, therefore I know I will fall victim to illness again; however, I do know there are ways to strengthen my immune system in order to make it more difficult for this to happen.
Conveniently, a few days after I recovered from the flu, EpiCor contacted me about sampling their 30 Day Immune Support Supplements.
I was more than willing to give my system an extra boost at that point, so I gladly accepted.
What is EpiCor? –
“EpiCor is an all-natural nutritional health ingredient used in dietary supplements that helps support the immune system. It is a unique, complex ingredient comprised of protein, fiber, vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, and other metabolites. Taken daily, EpiCor has been shown to be a safe and effective way to help support immune health and maintain wellness.” – from the website
Aside from being a strong multivitamin, EpiCor also acts as a prebiotic, feeding good bacteria to your gut. And an added bonus: if you do get sick, EpiCor helps you recover more quickly.
I do take a few vitamins every morning, but nothing specifically for the support of my immune system. I was happy to add this one to the pill lineup.
I’ve been taking this little pill daily, and while I can’t be 100% sure that it’s the reason, I haven’t picked up any sort of sickness since. I also haven’t been living in a bubble, so I know I’ve been emerged in germs.

Now I know you’re all interested in staying healthy through the flu plague this year, so that is why EpiCor has offered to giveaway 5 cases of FRS Healthy Defense for one SWYNTS reader.
That is over $150 in immune support!
