About the NSF Certified for Sport® Program
With the growing popularity of dietary supplements, athletes participating in organized sports at any level may have concerns about the potential presence of banned substances in supplements. It can be challenging to obtain the right information to make educated choices about which dietary supplement products to use. Reading labels is important, but it doesn’t always provide a complete picture of a product’s contents. So where can athletes turn?
They can look for supplements that have been tested and certified under the NSF Certified for Sport® program. Recognized by the NFL, NFL Players Association, MLB, MLB Players Association, PGA, LPGA and Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sports, this program helps protect against the adulteration of products, verifies label claims against product contents and includes screening for more than 200 substances banned by most major athletic organizations, including stimulants, narcotics, steroids, diuretics, beta-2-agonists, masking agents and other substances.
