Effects of a modified yeast supplement on cold/flu symptoms – Source: Urologic Nursing, Feb 2008

  [ Not Yet Rated ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Mark Moyad, ME, MPH, et al. • www.ProHealth.com • February 28, 2008


A yeast-based product (EpiCor®, a dried Saccharomyces cerevisiae fermentate) was compared to placebo to determine effects on the incidence and duration of cold and flu-like symptoms in healthy subjects recently vaccinated for seasonal influenza.

In a 12-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, 116 participants received daily supplementation with 500 mg of EpiCor or placebo for 12 weeks.

Data collected included periodic in-clinic examinations and serologic evaluations at baseline, 6- and 12-weeks.

Subjects also utilized a standardized self-report symptom diary during the study. Participants receiving the yeast-based product had significantly fewer symptoms and significantly shorter duration of symptoms when compared with subjects taking a placebo.

[Note: For more detail on the results of this study, see a related news release.]
