We take your reputation as seriously as we do our own. As many as one-in-ten supplements can be contaminated with ingredients and compounds prohibited in sport, so you need to ensure that the product you buy considers contamination as seriously as you do. To make certain our certified products are safer for athletes and drug-tested personnel, we test every single batch for banned substances before being released to market.
Informed Sport is a global testing and certification programme for sports and nutritional supplements. Supplement products are tested by LGC’s world-class anti-doping laboratory for contamination against a broad range of banned substances in sport, using ISO 17025 accredited methods. When you see the Informed Sport quality mark on a product, you can be assured that it has passed the most stringent sports supplements testing. We implement a step by step process to ensure the highest level of batch testing has taken place, before being accepted for certification. Once certification is been awarded, we continue to blind test samples to safeguard against banned substances. This process has been developed over 55 years of expertise in anti-doping in sport to provide suppliers and athletes absolute confidence in the programme.
Established in 2008, Informed Sport has certified over 3,000 unique products sold in over 127 countries globally. Our laboratories in the U.S. and the U.K. test over 20,000 samples per year, with that number continuing to grow. Elite athletes can trust their reputation and careers with Informed Sport certified products.
