Drug Free Sport NZ urges athletes to be careful using supplements

in Sportsfuel Articles and Blog
Right now there is a lot of media around Drug Free Sport NZ releasing a campaign highlighting the need to be careful about your use of supplements.

We agree 100% with the concept behind this campaign, if you are a drug tested athlete, it is crucial that you select the right supplements. The wrong choice could have a massive impact on an athletes career.

However, we feel that in order to help athletes make better choices we should also discuss programs like Informed Choice

Informed Choice
Informed-Choice is a quality assurance program for sports nutrition products, suppliers to the sports nutrition industry, and supplement manufacturing facilities. The program certify that all nutritional supplements and/or ingredients that bear the Informed-Choice logo have been tested for banned substances by the world class sports anti-doping lab, LGC. Athletes choosing to use supplements can use the search function above to find products that have been through this rigorous certification process.

Informed Choice

Therefore an athlete (at any level of competition) can use this website to see if a product has been independently checked by a third party.

This is a free resource for customers and at Sportsfuel we urge anyone who has concerns (or even a general interest) to use this resource. Simply search for the name of the product or brand you want to check and Informed Choice will tell you if that product and batch has been tested.

So good on Drug Free Sport NZ for highlighting the need for athletes to choose wisely, at Sportsfuel we offer a 7 day right of return, which means you can purchase a supplement online, check the batch number on the Informed Choice website, and if you are unhappy with the results, return the unopened product for a full refund.
