Dietery supplements

There is no guarantee that any supplement product is free from banned substances

You are strongly advised to be very cautious if you choose to use any supplement product

You must undertake thorough internet research of any supplement products before use, including the name of the product and the ingredients/substances listed. Information revealed, as a result, should be further investigated and we advise athletes to keep evidence of their research


What are the risks?

Supplements can contain banned substances

Contamination (where banned substances are accidentally mixed in with the supplement) can occur during the manufacturing process 

Ingredients on the label may be listed differently to how they are shown on the Prohibited List

Supplements may be sold as counterfeit products.

The risk of fake supplement products is greatest when buying over the internet

A label saying ‘Safe for Sports People’, or ‘Approved by WADA is meaningless. WADA does not approve any supplement products
