This logo is the Informed Sport logo and it signifies that all of our products are rigorously tested under a global testing and certification programme for sports and nutritional supplements. You can find out more about Informed Sport here.

Did you know that as many as one in ten sport supplements on the market could be contaminated with ingredients that are prohibited in sport? The Informed Sport certification was developed to ensure you can trust your nutrition partners in taking their product development as seriously as you do your performance.

When you see this logo on our products, not only can you feel assured that your product is safe from any contamination and banned substances but also know that once certification has been awarded, informed sport continues to blind test samples so testing is always ongoing and every batch is examined carefully.

Yes, lots of athletes will get tested. This is done at random and can be during competition, during training or even at an athletes home. Testing is often done with a ‘no advance notice’ approach and as an athlete, you should always undertake the test, refusing a test can lead to a four-year ban!

In short testing starts with selection and notification, then you would be chaperoned to the designated doping control station where your samples would be collected. You can request to delay a test under certain circumstances though, if you’re interested in finding out more about the testing procedures you can find out here.

Although it is mostly done on an elite level, you don’t have to be elite to be approached, a good example of this is at the Ironman World Championships where it is very common for Age-Group athletes to be selected for testing at random as well as the elite competitors.
