Nutritional Supplements are increasingly popular for both regular and elite Athletes. However, knowing which products or brands to use can be confusing. NutriCentreSports.com has tried to take make things a little easier for you.
We posed the same question to all the brands who we deal with:
‘Please could ...Read more you let me know which of your products are safe to take by tested athletes/contain no banned substances and the wording we are to use should we be asked by a tested athlete?’
The Brands Answer
‘In summary, all our protein products go through a rigorous quality assurance process and no banned substances are used in any of our products. We are WADA* compliant and have Europe’s only informed sport registered manufacturing facility supplying many professional teams including Scotland RFU, Newcastle Falcons and New Zealand All Blacks. If required by the team, we will send a batch to be HFL tested (effectively to provide further reassurance).’
* WADA = World Anti-Doping Agency
