Today, NSF notified Athletics Canada that PowerRun Energy products were no longer NSF, or NSF Certified for Sport certified. As such, effective immediately, Athletics Canada no longer endorses the use of PowerRun Energy products, and, PowerRun Energy is no longer an official supplier or national partner.
The objective of the NSF Certified For Sport program is to certify that participating sports supplement manufacturers have met NSF’s stringent independent certification process guidelines, which were developed through a consensus process involving regulatory, sports industry and consumer groups. A key component of this program is an NSF Mark on each product label, to show athletes, coaches and consumers that a sports supplement has met NSF’s comprehensive Certified for Sport program guidelines.
NSF offers a number of accessible tools that allows athletes to ensure nutritional supplements are NSF Certified for Sport:
Athletics Canada encourages athletes to use products that are certified and approved by NSF (http://www.nsfsport.com/listings/certified_products.asp) or Informed Choice (http://www.informed-choice.org/registered-products).
