Dietery Supplements

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.
