Austin, TX – April 1, 2019 - HumanN, an emerging leader in functional nutrition is proud to announce its Informed Sport certification, the global standard in sports nutrition quality control, on two of its best-selling products, BeetElite® and Endurance Greens.
Administered by the LGC Group, one of the world’s leading doping control organisations, Informed Sport certification demonstrates the highest level of commitment to quality assurance available in the industry today. Under the Informed Sport programme, every registered product lot is tested for prohibited substances and guaranteed to be free of more than 220+ prohibited substances recognised globally across North America, Europe, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Japan prior to the release and sale of that lot. Additionally, up to four blind retail sample screens are conducted per year to further ensure compliance. Both raw materials and supplement manufacturing facilities are required to be audited prior to being awarded the Informed Sport certification. HumanN BeetElite® and Endurance Greens have both been tested and verified to be free of banned performance-enhancing substances by this third-party testing company.
Both BeetElite® and Endurance Greens are formulated to help improve endurance and stamina, making them ideal choices for collegiate and professional sports teams, athletes, dietitians and nutritionists. In a recent, groundbreaking clinical trial, BeetElite® showed participants could recover faster and work out 18% longer. Endurance Greens is a certified USDA Organic daily formula packed with fruits and vegetables, clinically-studied KSM-66® Ashwagandha, and probiotics and prebiotic fiber. Endurance Greens helps boost stamina, improve sports performance, and promote mental focus & alertness.
The Collegiate and Professional Sports Dietitians Association (CPSDA), a national not for profit organisation leading the way in applied performance nutrition and advocating for the advancement of performance nutrition infrastructure, is proud to endorse HumanN in its endeavor to create safe, healthy and effective products. “Receiving the Informed Sport Certification for these two highly-used products is essential in demonstrating HumanN’s commitment to safe products that are free of banned substances, says Chelsea Burkart, President of CPSDA. “This allows athletes, parents, and coaches to have peace of mind in the products they are using.
