Screening Of Sports Supplements In Australia Finds 13 Are Tainted

July 7, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
A review of untested sports supplements used in Australia found that 19 percent contained substances that were banned in sports, and two presented a health risk that would have led to anti-doping violations. The review, conducted by international anti-doping lab LGC, was designed to assess the risk of such supplements to athletes and consumers. LGC screened 67 untested products for anabolic agents (endogenous and exogenous steroids), stimulants, diuretics and Beta-agonists at levels as low as parts per billion. LGC presented the findings to the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA), noting especially the two that presented significant risk.
