NSF's Program Helps Athletes Make Informed Decisions When Choosing Nutritional Products

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Dec. 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Recent news stories on steroid use in sports continue to emphasize the importance of screening dietary supplements and sports nutrition products for banned substances. NSF International's Athletic Banned Substances Certification Program offers a solution for athletes, coaches, trainers and anyone concerned about banned substances.

The NSF certification program creates a level playing field for athletes committed to fair play by certifying sports supplements that have met NSF's Athletic Banned Substances certification guidelines and provides key preventive measures to:

-- Protect against adulteration of products

-- Verify label claims with product contents

-- Identify inappropriate substances in the finished product

NSF's Athletic Banned Substances Certification Program has been recommended by key athletic organizations, including Major League Baseball, the Major League Baseball Players Association, the National Football League, the National Football League Players Association and the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport. Products that have been certified by NSF bear the NSF Certified (http://www.nsf.org/business/newsroom/images/sports_mark.gif) for Sport(TM) Mark to demonstrate that a manufacturer has met all program requirements, which include:

-- Toxicology review

-- Facility inspection/Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) audit

-- Annual laboratory testing/analysis

-- Product certification

The Certified for Sport(TM) mark helps athletes and consumers make more informed decisions when it comes to choosing dietary supplements and other sports nutrition products.
