This summer Nutra Supplements, a premier manufacturer of high-end dietary supplements based in Pune, India, and BSCG (Banned Substances Control Group), a leading international third-party testing and certification provider operating out of Los Angeles, celebrate Nutra Supplements’ seventh year in the BSCG Certified Drug Free® program. As part of its continued commitment to quality Nutra Supplements is excited to add BSCG Certified Drug Free® certifications to five more products: Nutra Daily Pro, Nutra BCAA, Nutra Creatine Monohydrate, Nutra Kids Whey, and Beetroot Bar products.
“We are grateful for our flagship client in India, Nutra Supplements, for their longtime and expanding dedication to the BSCG Certified Drug Free® program,” said Oliver Catlin, BSCG President. “BSCG is pleased to play a small part in helping Nutra Supplements meet the standards consumers and athletes in India, and internationally, expect and deserve when it comes to drug-free products.”
“We are proud to work with a company like BSCG, founded by the great Dr. Don Catlin, a scientist who has done more to keep sports clean than perhaps anyone else in the world. And we appreciate the opportunity to work with his son Oliver Catlin, whom we have the utmost respect for,” said Prasanna Choudhari, Nutra Supplements’ Managing Director. “Nutra Supplements takes tremendous pride in our products and great care in their development and manufacture, and we are honored that our products carry the BSCG Certified Drug Free® seal.”
Nutra Supplements works with athletes and consumers, and offers an individual analysis of which of the company’s products might be most beneficial for them based on their goals. To help ensure quality and safety, Nutra Supplements individually packages its protein supplements, uses tamper-free packaging, and has its products tested and certified by third-party provider BSCG, with every single batch of supplements in the sports category tested for prohibited substances.
With an industry-leading testing menu, the BSCG Certified Drug Free® program tests for more than 480 drugs. BSCG includes the most important drugs on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List and is the only certification provider to include expanded coverage against prescription, over-the-counter, and illicit drugs not banned in sport. Offering security to athletes across the spectrum of Olympic, professional, and collegiate sport internationally, BSCG also provides additional consumer protection from potentially harmful drug contaminants.
The BSCG Certified Drug Free® program includes a Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) quality-control process review, raw material ingredient and supplier review, and a general toxicology assessment. Testing is conducted in International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 17025 accredited laboratories. Ongoing batch testing is required with off-the-shelf random testing conducted on occasion.
Founded in 2004, Nutra Supplements first developed supplement products for athletes, growing children, pregnant women, and people over the age of 40. Today, Nutra Supplements’ many products are supplied to sporting organizations and teams, fitness gyms and health clubs, schools, and are used by decorated athletes around the world. Nutra Supplement products are recommended by a number of organizations and sporting groups in India.
BSCG was founded in 2004 by world-renowned Olympic drug-testing pioneer Don Catlin, MD, and his son, executive Oliver Catlin, to offer reputable manufacturers, brands, and distributors a third-party program to distinguish their products as free of banned substance concerns and to provide consumers and competitors assurance that what they’re consuming will not endanger their health or lead to a doping violation. Today BSCG’s certification program options include BSCG Certified Quality™, BSCG Certified GMP™, and BSCG Certified Hemp™.
