NSF Sport Certification ✔︎
SFH is proud to announce it has joined the team of products that are NSF Certified for Sport. Both our Super Omega3 Fish Oils and our Pure Whey supplement products have received the NSF Certified for Sport stamp of approval!
The NSF or National Sanitary Foundation is part of the public health and safety organization and has a mission to “protect and improve global human health.” As a third party and independent organization which is accredited, NSF International evaluates consumer products, holding them to quality and safety standards.
In order to get certified by NSF Sport, a product undergoes a rigorous testing process, including a toxicology review in which it is searched for any potentially harmful elements, an accuracy check on the ingredients label, and a search for 270 substances that have been banned by both professional sports leagues and doping watchdog organizations.
NSF Sport is used internationally and trusted by American sports organizations such as the NFL, MLB, NBA, PGA, LPGA, and NHL, as well as collegiate leagues. According to the NSF and WADA (the World Anti Doping Agency), aside from detecting contaminants like pesticides and other toxins, NSF sport accreditation does extra testing to detect a list of banned items like hormones, steroids, stimulants, narcotics, diuretics, and other masking agents. The rigorous testing ensures that supplements and foods that athletes consume won’t give anyone an unfair advantage or possibly harm an athlete. Learn more about NSF Sport Certification
The benefits of having a third party accredited organization testing and approving a product are immeasurable. First, lots of athletes don’t know what they are consuming from product to product. Many supplement companies make claims which aren’t supported by the actual ingredients. NSF isn’t beholden to any corporation and can hold companies accountable for false claims that are made. Also, athletes can unknowingly ingest something that can lead to a positive drug test. After months and months of training, this can be a devastating surprise if it results in disqualification or suspension, all because a product has hidden elements in it. NSF testing assures that banned substances won’t find their way into a product that is used. Plus, rather than spot testing here and there, NSF certified products mean that every lot put on the market is tested or it isn’t allowed on the shelves with the NSF stamp of approval.
Our Super Omega-3 Liquid Fish Oil is beneficial to athletes who go through rigorous training, as it is helpful for heart, brain, and joint health. Our Pure Whey Protein supplements help build and maintain muscles. SFH athletes can benefit from using NSF Sport approved clean products and rest assured knowing that what is on the label is what is in the package.
