ConsumerLab has released details of the first nine products to pass its "Athletic Banned Substances Screening Program". The programme was set up at the request of the United States Olympic Committee (USOC).

ConsumerLab claims that the screening programme is the first to comprehensively test products for their quality as well as for substances that could cause disqualification of athletes from Olympic competition. The programme includes screening for over 50 stimulants, narcotics, anabolic agents, diuretics, masking agents, and beta-blockers.

The first nine products to pass this programme are listed at www.consumerlab.com​ and include Pharmanex's Bone Formula, Creatine Blast, Kava Kava and its ginseng Energy Formula.

"This testing helps prevent athletes from inadvertently taking substances that could disqualify them from competition,"​ said Ed Ryan, ATC USOC director of sports medicine.

He added: "ConsumerLab.com is providing an important service to athletes who use supplements and to manufacturers that make them."
