Supplements are not subject to the same manufacturing regulations as the pharmaceutical industry. As such, ASADA cannot guarantee the safety of products and they will not feature on the Check Your Substances page. Supplement products, especially those made overseas, can contain traces of banned substances due to lack of manufacturing control.

The ASADA video above details the risks associated with supplement use.

Athletes need to be aware that there is always some risk with any supplement product you choose to take, even those identified as lower risk products. The WADA strict liability principle states that YOU as the athlete are responsible for any substances found in your body, regardless of how they got there.
