In early 2006, EAS entered into a partnership with two leading nonprofit organizations – the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) and the National High School Athletic Coaches Association (NHSACA). We work with these two organizations to ensure that athletes understand the dangers of banned substances, and provide safe alternatives to help them achieve proper nutrition.
What is the purpose of the program?
The program certifies that participating manufacturers and their products have met NSF's stringent independent certification process guidelines, including:
*NSF has tested and certified that these products contain the identity and quantity of dietary ingredients declared on the product label, and that these products do not contain known banned substances. NSF certification, however, is limited to the specific serving size on the label, and consumption in excess of that serving size is not part of the certification. Select EAS products are certified through the NSF Athletic Banned Substance Certified for Sport™ Program, which is used by several professional and amateur sports leagues.
