WADA/IOC Approved Supplements


#1

I'm not sure If anyoen has asked this before but would taking Biotest products potentially cause you to fail a doping test ?, I've been using some of the products for while and they're great. But in about a year my sport will call for fairly regular doping tests.

So does anyone know for sure if the products would pass the tests and if so/if not which ones in particular.


#2

All Biotest products are free of any ingredient in the WADA prohibited list and no Biotest product will cause testing failure.


#3

all right good to know. cheers mate


#4

What about NCAA?


#5

caffeine is banned by ncaa. Spike and HOT-ROX can cause a positive test


#6

dang. well, there goes my plan for going out for BYU football.


#7

The caffeine isn't an issue for me Im playing rugby in England the RFU don't have bans on caffeine, so I'm all good


#8

The caffeine ban is not an absolute one, but rather a limit on urinary concentration at 15 mcg/mL. This corresponds -- very roughly as of course conditions will vary -- to taking 500 mg in the hour or hours before the test.

So it is not that caffeine-containing products must be avoided in general while remaining NCAA-legal, but rather that larger amounts of caffeine can't be consumed shortly before an event.


#9

exactly. youre given 24 hours notice so unless youre an idiot its pretty much impossible to fail due to caffeine


#10

Just on this note,I'm wondering if Indigo-3G contains ingredients on the WADA banned list?It's the only thing stopping me from making a purchase at the moment...

What you can do is scroll down to the bottom of this page and call the toll free number. That's why it is there.
