The sports supplement industry is an ever-revolving door — one product in and another out — where new supplements are introduced at an alarming rate, with no signs of slowing. In such a fast-paced industry, it’s difficult for consumers and athletes to keep up with the ingredients going into these supplements. In-text image


This is what has led to the NSF Certified For Sport® label. It’s an independent testing standard that strictly tests the safety and quality to ensure that what’s on the label is in the product and what’s in the product is on the label. With this, athletes can make the most informed choice when choosing sports supplements and know that it complies with the list of banned substances.
