23 March 2015, Fordham, Cambridgeshire, UK - Spain’s National Anti-Doping Organisation (AEPSAD) has agreed to support the continued expansion of LGC’s anti-doping testing programme Informed-Sport into the Spanish sports supplements marketplace.
International science group LGC has been working with AEPSAD to increase awareness of the risks associated with inadvertent doping as a result of products contaminated with substances prohibited in sport by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
20 October 2014, Teddington, UK - LGC is monitoring for the presence of AMP Citrate in sports supplements products as the prohibited compound looks set to become the next significant risk to athletes in elite sport.
AMP Citrate – also known as DMBA – is a pre-workout ingredient that has already been identified in a number of sports nutrition products.
It poses a risk to athletes failing an anti-doping test because it has a similar chemical structure to prohibited substance DMAA (methylhexanamine, 1,3-dimethylamylamine).
22 July 2014, Adelaide, Australia - LGC’s anti-doping laboratory has launched their internationally-renowned supplements testing programmes Informed-Sport and Informed-Choice into the Australian marketplace. LGC’s initiative has the support of the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS).
Informed-Sport and Informed-Choice are rigorous risk-minimisation programmes that promote ‘clean’ sport by providing a solution to the issue of inadvertent doping through the use of contaminated sports nutrition.
