When active college-aged subjects at Oklahoma State University were given the egg-based immunoglobulin supplement IgY Max Performance® for two weeks prior to a session of intense exercise, a blood sample yielded significantly (p<0.05) lower post-exercise serum CK levels compared to the placebo group, suggesting IgY helped reduce inflammation. While the placebo group experienced a 182.0% pre-to-post gain in serum CK, the IgY group increased only approximately half that amount (93.4%). Additionally, subjects in the IgY group perceived lower levels of soreness.
In an earlier study conducted by Scheett et al. at the College of Charleston, supplementation of IgY Max Performance® increased upper body muscular endurance, and participants reported significantly less soreness 24 hours following exercise.
These results reveal that IgY Max Performance® reduces post-workout inflammation by reducing cytokine production via cytokine inhibitory factor (CIF) and attenuates the effects of DOMS to reduce recovery time.
The new study suggests that by supplementing with IgY Max Performance® before exercise, athletes may be able to train at a higher intensity with less time between gym visits, presenting a viable competitive advantage. Made from whole egg protein powder, IgY Max Performance® does not contain hormones or antibiotics. For purchase inquiries and more information, visit www.igyperformance.com.
