Why is banned substance testing vital for all professional athletes and supplement brands? Based on our research and testing, 1 in 10 sports supplements may be contaminated by substances banned in sport. These pose a risk not only to athletes' health, but also to their reputation, playing time, and financial opportunities. The same risks can be said for supplement brands selling to the players and teams.
Join us as we talk with Jamie Meeks, MS, RD, CSSD, LDN, Director of Sports Nutrition for the New Orleans Saints, as we discuss the importance of banned substance testing and why athletes need to exercise caution when using sports supplements. A graduate of LSU, Jamie was also the school’s first full-time dietitian before her current role with the Saints.
