Vitacost EpiCor(R) Complex with Vitamin D C & Zinc -- 30 Capsules
Good product - needs tweaking
Good ingredients, have not tried it yet but I also will not do so until Vitacost add copper to the formulation.
The description says "Vitacost EpiCor Complex is all-natural supplement featuring a unique natural complex that can be taken year round to support immune function in healthy individuals" (note "all year round").
Is this really true? While EpiCor can be taken all year round, surely, when taken long-term (over 7 days as a guideline), any zinc supplementation needs to be balanced with copper? According to the nutritional information, this product contains NO COPPER and this is a concern for me and for anyone intending to take this long-term.
Therefore, until Vitacost fix this, I cannot recommend this product for long-term use. It is probably ok for up to 1 week.
I would also like to see more vitamin C (perhaps 500mg) included, rather than just 100mg.

Epicor replace PureImmune PLus
I purchased this as a replacement for a more expensive version of basically the same ingredients in PureImmune Plus, and so far it is just as effective.
