Australian Ironman magazine has covered our partnership with informed sport and we thought we’d share it with you!
CERTIFICATION an Aussie first
Concerned about inadvertant doping and supplement contamination, BodyScience (BSc) has launched and Australian first by providing assurance that their products do not contain ingredients banned under WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) rules. In doing this, BSc joins the list of Informed Sport approved brands – Informed Sport being an international supplement testing and certification program. The certification program started almost two years ago and through it BSc has become a partner with LGC, a WADA/IOC accredited laboratory. “The new certification gives assurance to every athlete and consumer we power through our range of supplements that they are consuming clean products that are drug free,” said Greg Young, owner and director of BSc. The new Body Science Athlete range will carry the informed sport certification.

Body Science is dedicated to improving (since 2002) and implementing our Athlete Series with the revised Athlete Safety / Anti-doping program incorporating Informed-Sport, promotes the new minimum standard for clean sport in Australia. Body Science is the first and only Australian brand to manufacture the safest, most highly tested products.
We recognise the importance of the Informed-Sport quality assurance program. Informed-Sport certifies that all nutritional supplements and/or ingredients that bear the Informed-Sport logo have been tested for banned substances by the world-class sports anti-doping lab LGC Sport Science, and is referenced on the AIS press statement announcing their full support behind the LGC Informed-Sport program.
Looking ahead to 2015, all brands in sport should register as Informed Sport.
Why do we have the Informed-Sport and Informed-Choice logo on our product? Purity is one of the most essential considerations when choosing supplements for sport. The Informed-Sport program allows athletes, and those involved in sport, to choose products that are rigorously tested, batch by batch, for contaminants and WADA (World-Anti-Doping-Agency) banned substances to ensure that they are safe to use.
Informed-Sport is the gold standard in “supplement quality control” whereby EVERY batch is to be tested before release to market. Informed-Choice has the same rigorous registration standards as Informed-Sport, but is designed as a “retail monitoring program” whereby each product is RANDOMLY/BLIND TESTED 12 times per year, irrespective of the number of batches manufactured.
