About Certified for Sport?
To meet the growing demands of athletes, coaches and all those concerned about banned substances in sports supplements, NSF International created the Certified for Sport? program. The program certifies that what is on the label is in the bottle and that the product does not contain unsafe levels of contaminants, prohibited substances or masking agents.
Certification also means that supplement manufacturers and their suppliers meet stringent certification guidelines developed through a consensus process involving regulatory, sports industry and consumer groups.
