Right now, there are hundreds if not thousands of supplements available to consumers. Many have claims on their labels that contain ingredients or quantities that are not even in the formula. There isn't a regulatory body that investigates these claims unless the company themselves consent to testing. This leads to consumers being confused about which products are credible.
About NSF International
NSF International is the first truly independent testing standard and product certification program strictly for dietary supplements. This testing program meets the growing demands of athletes, coaches and all those concerned about banned substances in dietary supplements and functional foods. NSF verifies that these products do not contain unsafe levels of contaminants, prohibited substances or masking agents, and that what is on the label matches what is in the product.
Certified for Sport
By doing so, the Certified for Sport® certification program provides consumers with safer choices when selecting dietary supplements and functional foods.
The Certified for Sport® certification is the only independent third-party certification program recognized by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), Major League Baseball, the National Hockey League and the Canadian Football League. Certified for Sport® is also recommended by the NFL, NBA, PGA, LPGA, CCES, CPSDA, iNADO, Ironman, NASCAR, Taylor Hooton Foundation and many other organizations seeking to mitigate the risks of contaminated dietary supplements.
There are numerous quality components of the Certified for Sport® certification program, which verifies that:
- Products do not contain any of 280 substances banned by major athletic organizations.
- The contents of the supplement actually match what is printed on the label.
- There are no unsafe levels of contaminants in the tested products.
- The product is manufactured at a facility that is GMP registered and audited twice annually for quality and safety by NSF International.
