The Importance of Testing Supplements for Banned Substances

The Importance of Testing Supplements for Banned Substances

In the world of fitness and health, the use of dietary supplements has become increasingly prevalent. These products promise to enhance athletic performance, boost energy levels, and support overall well-being. However, there is a growing concern surrounding the safety and legitimacy of some supplements, as they may contain banned substances that pose serious risks to both athletes and everyday consumers.

At Cerus Performance, none of the ingredients we use are on banned substance lists. In fact, our ingredients are all-natural and most have been used for centuries. We’ve taken it a step further and achieved the Informed Sport certification for both Flow/Flow Pro and Creatine + Hydrate.

First, what are banned substances? These are ingredients that have been prohibited by regulatory bodies like the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) due to their potential health risks and unfair competitive advantages. These substances can include anabolic steroids, stimulants, hormones, and other performance-enhancing drugs.

Consuming supplements that contain banned substances can have severe consequences. For athletes, it can result in disqualification, suspension, or even the end of their careers. For everyday consumers, it poses health risks ranging from adverse reactions to long-term health issues.

To alleviate concerns about potential contamination and to provide consumers with peace of mind, third-party certification programs can play a significant role. Organizations like Informed-Sport offer certification to supplements that meet their stringent testing criteria. These certifications ensure that the products are free from banned substances and manufactured with the highest standards.

Cerus Performance supplements are both effective and free from banned substances, contributing to performance, overall well-being and peace of mind.
