IGY Immune Technologies & Life Sciences Inc (“IGY Life Sciences”) is pleased to congratulate Natalja Naryshkina for her first place finish, Women’s Classic at the American Birkebeiner Cross Country Skiing Competition in Hayward, Wisconsin.
29-year-old Russian born Natalja Naryshkina, who trains out of Verona, Wisconsin, took first place on the podium for the Women’s Classic coming in at 3:26:00.6 ahead of the pack by 1:48.8.
Naryshkina was introduced to Vector450, an immune recovery dietary supplement, through Central Cross Country Association (“CXC Skiing”) in late 2013 and has become an avid user recognizing its post exercise and post competition recovery benefits.
“We’re extremely proud of Natalja’s achievement at this year’s Birkie.” said Terry Dyck, CEO of IGY Life Sciences. “She persevered in the frigid conditions along with the thousands of other cross-country skiers and elite athletes who came from 21 countries and 48 states to take part in the one of the oldest ski marathons in North America, to cross the finish line on Main Street in Hayward, Wisconsin in top form.”
When asked how Vector450 has helped, Natalja stated, “When doing the marathon, my legs is good. After marathon my legs feel good. Not so much different when doing sprints. And I not sick!”
Natalja has won the U.S. Nationals Classic Sprint, Mora Vasaloppet 58km Skate and City of Lakes Loppet Overall.
Bill Pierce, coach of the CXC Elite Team added, “During our high season of travel and transition, the athletes on the team that were taking Vector450 did not get sick. As well, midseason at US Nationals there was a fair amount of flu illness among the competitors. I did have a short (12 hours) of flu symptoms during that competition. Four hours into the symptoms I took one capsule under the tongue with water. About an hour later, my nauseousness and other symptoms started to relieve. Six hours after taking the capsule and combined with rest, I was back to feeling normal. Vector450 combined with other good recovery practices has helped to reduce the illness occurrences on our team.”
Since launching in early 2013, Vector450 has been capturing attention and momentum with athletes from all disciplines. It has resonated most strongly with multi-sport athletes, cyclists, marathon and ultra-distance runners who most often feel the negative immune effects of high intensity training and competition.
“Maintaining optimum immune health is a top priority for athletes at all levels especially when competing in high intensity ultra-type events such as cross-country skiing, marathons, triathlons and other sports requiring prolonged exertion,” says Terry Dyck, “Studies have shown that high intensity training can suppress normal immune function over a period of time anywhere from a few hours to several days.”
The risk of an impaired immune system for top athletes is further exacerbated by other factors such as the exposure to new pathogens through travel, lack of proper sleep, weight loss, mental stress, inadequate nutrition or adoption of unusual diets. The consequences of an impaired immune function for athletes are missed workouts or competitions, and a general decrease in performance.
“Vector450 works safely and effectively at the gut level to modulate the immune system and functions to improve its efficiency. It is all-natural, and equally important, a non-stimulant. It does not contain any gluten, dairy or sugar.” According to Terry Dyck, “Vector450 is designed to re-balance the immune system, which is often over stressed in competitive athletes. Once they can alleviate the pressure on their immune system, athletes can train better and compete at their optimal level.”
Vector450 is the only Health Canada approved Natural Health Product that contains naturally extracted and purified IgY protein from hen egg yolks. IGY Life Sciences brands its proprietary purified IgY immune health ingredient as Muno-IgY. “What sets Muno-IgY apart from any other product available on the market today is the high purity of the ingredient. With over 15 years invested in development, IGY Life Sciences can finally offer consumers a cost-effective and highly-purified product.” says Terry Dyck.
