Updated SENr Supplement Position Statement
The document has been updated with the following explanation / advice:
On some occasions supplement companies have been found to incorrectly use the Informed Sport and Informed Choice logos. This may be a blatant disregard of the logo by a company, or may be inappropriate early use of the logo prior to final test results being confirmed by Informed Sport. As such, we strongly recommend that all athletes and practitioners check that the products, and batches of supplements they plan to use, have been through the Informed Sport testing programme. This can be done easily by visiting the following webpage: www.informed-sport.com/supplement_search.
British Association of Sports & Exercise Sciences (BASES) publish SENr Supplement Statement Article in their Winter 2016 journal.
