Informed Sport: What Does Informed Sport Certified Protein Mean - Fast&Up

What Does Informed Sport Certified Protein Mean

Did you know doping can end your career even before it starts? Although there is immense competition in every sport one plays, there is increased use of protein, rehydration, vitamins, minerals and other supplements that helps to support athletic performance. This is true for both elite athletes and future sports players wanting to reach the next level of performance. Unfortunately people having the supplements may unknowingly have substances that are banned by WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) such as a stimulant, hormones and other substances.

The repercussions of being caught with banned substances results in years or months of ban from sports and even being banned for life in case of repeated offenders. No need to add the negative effects on health physically and mentally as well. The question also arises on the integrity of the sports when a sports person is caught with banned substances.

It is quite disturbing to know that as per statistics assessed by Times of India(TOI), in 2019 NADA’s anti-doping disciplinary panel (ADDP) handed out a record number of punishments to 147 athletes for having performance enhancing drugs, which apparently is all time high figure since the inception of NADA in 2005.

How does Banned substance find its place into sports nutrition products?

There are umpteen reason for contamination:

  • Raw Materials
  • Poor Manufacturing Practises
  • Cross Contamination
  • Labelling and Packaging Gimmick

Additionally few supplements use herbal ingredients which have either poor quality control or have compounds that are naturally present that may be prohibited in sport. There are high chances that trace levels of contamination ends up in genuinely legitimate supplements. Athletes are tested at levels as low as parts per billion, contamination may result in a positive drug test which will have a significant and negative impact on their careers.
