I got this from my son a freshman football player.
I have to be extremely careful with the products he takes.
What supps from Biotest should we stay away from.
The University Interscholastic League (UIL) will begin a random anabolic steroid testing program for high school
student athletes in the 2007-2008 school year.
Use of anabolic steroids not prescribed by a doctor, and/or use of nutritional or dietary supplements (available
online and in many stores) that may contain or be contaminated with steroid-like chemicals, can cause a positive
steroid test result. A positive result on a steroid test will result in a loss of eligibility for a minimum of 30 days.
Nutritional or dietary supplements include but may not be limited to:
ï¿½?ï¿½ supplements marketed as 'pro-hormones' of testosterone (e.g.; andro; DHEA, etc.)
ï¿½?ï¿½ numerous herbal extracts (e.g.; crysin, saw palmetto, tribulus terrestris, etc.)
ï¿½?ï¿½ protein powders, amino acids supplements and creatine
ï¿½?ï¿½ vitamin supplements and mineral supplements
Dietary supplements are not considered to be a food or a drug and therefore the contents and purity of these
products is NOT tested closely or regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Athletes must be aware that they are responsible for everything they eat, drink and put into their body. Ignorance
and/or lack of intent are not acceptable excuses for a positive steroid test result.
The UIL and TEA want to make students, parents, coaches and school administrators aware that
dietary supplements can contain, or be contaminated with, steroid-like chemicals that can cause a
'positive' test result.
A positive result on a steroid test will result in a loss of eligibility for a minimum
of 30 days.
