IGY Immune Technologies & Life Sciences Inc has confirmed that regulatory body Health Canada has approved its sports nutrition supplement brand Vector450.
According to Terry Dyck, CEO of IGY Life Sciences, “The approval by Health Canada is incredibly important to us and to our customers. As one of the most stringent health organizations in the world, Health Canada’s full approval gives the public assurance on the safety and efficacy of using Vector450.”
Dyck continued, “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.”
Since launching in early 2013, Vector450 has been capturing attention and momentum with athletes from all disciplines. Vector450 has resonated most with multisport athletes, cyclists, marathon and ultra-distance runners who may 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 marathons, triathlons and other sports requiring prolonged exertion,” added 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.
“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 does not contain any gluten, dairy or sugar,” Dyck continued.
“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 compete at their optimal level.”
IGY notes that 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, now also known as NPN #80044345 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.
Vector450 is available online across North America at vector450.com and as well, at select retail locations in the United States.
