TWINALB is a company that’s been a pioneer in the sports nutrition arena for over 40 years! In fact, Muscular Development magazine was actually once owned by TWINLAB and IFBB Pro Lee Priest was a spokesmodel for their company! Over the years, they’ve had roots deeply entrenched in sports nutrition with flagship brands like Ripped Fuel, Diet Fuel, Gainers Fuel, and countless others. Well there’s big news now coming for natural bodybuilders and other athletes because they’ve successfully completed the requirements of NSF International’s GMP for Sport™ Athletic Banned Substances Program.
What Does This Mean?
The program verifies that Twinlab’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility has met NSF International’s stringent independent certification process guidelines. Facilities certified by NSF conform to the highest consensus standards, and ongoing monitoring, including two annual facility inspections, to ensure continued compliance with program requirements. The new GMP for Sport certification applies to all brands produced in the facility, including Twinlab®, Metabolife®, Alvita®, Nature’s Herbs® brands, as well as all private label and contract manufacturing.
NSF International’s GMP for Sport program was developed to meet the growing demand of athletes, coaches and all those concerned about banned substances appearing in supplements. Plain and simply, athletes want to know that the supplements they take do not have contaminants in them that could cause them to fail a drug test. NSF inspects facilities for a range of substances identified by leading sports organizations, such as the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). Getting this certification allows companies the ability to emphasize the quality of their operations to companies, retailers and consumers.
“For over 40 years, the number one promise of the Twinlab brand to our customers has been quality above all else,” said Thane Slagowski, VP of Product Development and Quality at Twinlab. “This latest certification from NSF International solidifies that promise, and renews our enduring commitment to continue manufacturing quality nutritional products of only the highest standard.”
For obtaining NSF GMP for Sport™ registration, Twinlab appears on NSF International’s online listings and may use the NSF GMP for Sport mark in advertising and promotional materials.
“The NSF GMP for Sport certification demonstrates Twinlab’s commitment to quality sports nutrition manufacturing,” said Ed Wyszumiala, General Manager of NSF’s Dietary Supplements Certification programs.
