At Isagenix, we work to ensure our sports supplements are safe for athletes to use all over the world. For this reason, we are pleased to announce that the the sports supplement ‘AMPED’ line and other athlete-focused products are now certified with Informed-Sport. Competitive athletes, or any athletes who are subject to testing for their sport, can feel secure knowing that each batch of the sports supplements they consume has been tested for quality and for banned substances.

The possibility of substances banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) in sports supplements is surprisingly high. Researchers estimate that somewhere between 3-25 percent of sports products contain traces of banned substances that are not present on the label.
What is Informed-Sport?
Informed-Sport is a voluntary certification program that regularly tests supplements for banned substances and confirms that they’ve been manufactured under high-quality standards. Brands that carry the Informed-Sport certification work with manufacturers and have quality assurance systems in place to ensure the safety of their products for athlete use. Not only are the products tested, but the manufacturing facilities are also audited to be sure cross-contamination between brands and products is minimised or eliminated. For more information, see Informed-Sport.com.
What Substances Does Informed-Sport Screen For?
Informed-Sport screens for more than 160 substances are banned in sport. The list of substances includes anabolic agents, stimulants, drugs of abuse, beta-2-agonists, masking agents, and more. Even residue from the banned substances can contribute to positive testing of either blood or urine samples in competitive athletes.
What Isagenix Sports Supplements are certified by Informed-Sport?
Isagenix has chosen to certify all products that are part of the Performance Solution. This applies to several international markets and include:
North America (U.S. and Canada): AMPED™ Power, AMPED NOx, AMPED Fuel, AMPED Recover, AMPED Hydrate, e+™, IsaLean® PRO Shake, IsaPro®, Ionix® Supreme, and AMPED Bars.
Australia/New Zealand: AMPED Power, AMPED NOx, AMPED Recover, AMPED Replenish, e+, IsaLean PRO Shake, IsaPro, and Ionix Supreme.
Why aren’t all Isagenix products certified by Informed-Sport?
Isagenix worked with athletes, customers, developers and manufacturers to determine what products initially needed to possess the Informed-Sport certification. The products in the Performance Solution are most likely used by elite athletes concerned with the WADA-banned substances list. In the future, there may be more Isagenix products that become certified.
What does this mean for athletes using Isagenix Sports Supplements?
If you’re a competitive or elite athlete we have your back. The products you’re using with the Informed-Sport seal have been tested and are free of banned substances.
Having Informed-Sport certification on Isagenix sports nutrition products is yet one more example of the company’s commitment to no-compromise quality. This will now allow every class of athlete to benefit from the great sports nutrition that Isagenix has to offer.
