Three-time Gold Medalist, Four-time FIFA World Cup finalist, and U.S. Women’s Soccer Team captain Christie Rampone has joined the EpiCor team as a spokesperson.
Rampone, 38, is regarded as one of the fastest and most tireless defenders on the U.S. National Team and was listed as “One of the Most Influential Female Soccer Players” by ESPN. She was also named as one of the most powerful working moms of 2013 by Working Mother magazine. She currently plays for Sky Blue FC in the National Women’s Soccer League, where she also serves as team captain.
As a wife and mother of two, Rampone is also legendary for balancing family life and a busy athletic schedule while still remaining one of the most fit and accomplished soccer players on the planet.
Rampone started using EpiCor, a natural immune strength supplement ingredient manufactured by Embria Health Sciences, during an extended trip to Portugal in early 2013 for soccer training and competition with the U.S. National Team. Despite her non-stop travel, family training and competition schedule, Rampone remained healthy during the entire trip. She credits the immune supplement with helping her remain healthy despite the demanding schedule that resulted in several of her teammates taking downtime to recover from minor illnesses.
“I started taking EpiCor before the 2013 Algarve Cup, which is always a tough tournament due to the tough winter weather, demanding travel and fierce competition," Rampone said. "This year, I felt great—so much better than during prior Algarves, and the only difference to my regimen this time was taking EpiCor. That's what made me a true believer in EpiCor."
For Rampone, maintaining immune strength is even more important since she recovered from an infection of Lyme disease. Lyme is an infectious disease caused by a tick bite, which can lead to fatigue, and muscle and joint pain. Rampone has found that managing stress and keeping her immune system strong helps her maintain a healthy immune system so she can focus on her training schedule, athletic performance, and family.
Rampone will work with Embria to highlight the immune system benefits that EpiCor provides, as well to personally embody the different ways EpiCor can benefit busy professionals who travel, athletes looking for more healthy days for training and performance and working mothers who strive to stay healthy amidst the various stressors that motherhood brings.
