We recently earned certification from NSF’s Certified for Sport® Program. NSF is a global public health organization that tests and certifies products to help protect athletes and consumers from potentially harmful ingredients and athletic banned substances in dietary supplements.
The NSF Certified for Sport® designation represents a significant expansion of market opportunities for BOA Endure. MLB, NHL and CFL clubs provide and recommend products that are Certified for Sport® and players are urged to use only these certified products. The certification is also recommended by the NFL, PGA, LPGA and other professional sports organizations, and is required by many NCAA Division 1 athletics programs for any sports supplements.
“We are thrilled to have achieved this important certification,” said Jon Pritchett, CEO of BOA Nutrition. “BOA Endure was ultimately created to help athletes perform at their optimal level by helping to delay the onset of fatigue and other problems that result from dehydration. Earning NSF’s Certified for Sport certification opens many doors to reach athletes, helping BOA continue to change the game in sports nutrition and hydration.”
The Certified for Sport® protocol includes testing for 280 athletic banned substances as well as potentially harmful levels of contaminants like lead and arsenic. Product formulation, label claims and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) compliance are also verified as part of this rigorous supplement certification program. With certification, BOA Endure is included in NSF’s online listing of certified products and on the Certified for Sport® app.
“NSF welcomes BOA Endure to the Certified for Sport® program,” said David Trosin, Managing Director, Health Sciences Certification at NSF. “NSF is committed to protecting and improving human health worldwide. By meeting our rigorous Certified for Sport® requirements, BOA Nutrition is demonstrating its commitment to clean sport as well as quality, safety and good manufacturing processes.”
BOA Endure has quickly gained favor among endurance athletes including marathoners, triathletes and combined obstacle course racers, as well as with athletes in traditional sports. U.S. IRONMAN champion Sam Long, obstacle course champions Hunter McIntyre and Katie Knight, former Duke basketball star and Minnesota Timberwolves first-round draft pick Wendell Moore Jr., Green Bay Packers first-round draft pick Devonte Wyatt, and L.A. Football Club forward Christian Torres are among the growing list of athletes using and endorsing the product.
