The Certified for Sport® certification is the only independent third-party certification program recognized by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), Major League Baseball, the National Hockey League and the Canadian Football League. Certified for Sport® is also recommended by the NFL, NBA, PGA, LPGA, CCES, CPSDA, iNADO, Ironman, NASCAR, Taylor Hooton Foundation and many other organizations seeking to mitigate the risks of contaminated dietary supplements.
“MLB Clubs are permitted to only provide and recommend products that are Certified for Sport®, and players are urged to only use these products. NSF has expanded their program to meet the growing needs of our athletes and developed valuable resources to help guide them through the dietary supplement industry.”
– Jon Coyles, Vice President, Drug, Health & Safety Programs, MLB
Many people, especially athletes, in the United States take one or more vitamins or other dietary supplements. Supplements can contain vitamins, minerals like iron, herbs or other botanicals like ashwagandha, amino acids, digestive enzymes like lipase, and many other ingredients.
Dietary supplements come in a variety of forms, including tablets, capsules, gummies, and powders, as well as drinks and energy bars. Popular supplements include vitamins D and B12; minerals like calcium and iron; herbs such as echinacea and garlic; and products like glucosamine, probiotics, and fish oils.
