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 logo“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.”
