Product purity: Entire NOW sports range gains "Informed Sport" certification

The "clean" certification comes from a third party, known as Informed Sport, who have 54 years’ experience in anti-doping control.

The full line of NOW Sports’ natural sports nutrition products will be third-party certified via the Informed-Sport program to ensure pClick to Enlargeroduct purity. This includes their protein powders, amino acids and other products for energy and endurance and mass building.

“Typically some companies have a handful of products certified but to my knowledge NOW Sports is the first to have the entire line certified. This is a noteworthy accomplishment that will give elite athletes worry-free access to the most comprehensive line of natural sports products in the world,” he adds.

The Informed-Sport certification program is a globally recognized assurance program for anti-doping in sports nutrition products, suppliers, and manufacturers.
