SaltStick Capsules are crucial to minimize muscle cramping, heat stress and fatigue due to unbalanced electrolyte blood levels.
Nearly every lot of SaltStick Caps has been tested for WADA-prohibited substances. None of our competitors can say that.
How else can Ironman World Champions and Half-Ironman World Champions depend on our products?
We recognize the importance of drug-free sport, and of competing on a level playing field. As a sponsor of many elite-level athletes around the globe, we take the safety of our products seriously, and SaltStick Caps is the electrolyte capsule of choice. The product is produced in a cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practices) facility to ensure product of the highest quality.
SaltStick Caps contain only the ingredients listed on the product label. SaltStick Caps are safe and legal for use in any sporting event governed by the World Anti-Doping Association (WADA), the US Anti-Doping Association (USADA), the UCI (Union Cycliste International), and the NFL (National Football League), among others.
Accidental contamination of supplements with prohibited substances is of great concern for every athlete, especially professionals who are tested on a regular basis. Lots of SaltStick Caps continue to be tested for WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) prohibited substances by HFL Sport Science (owned by LGC), the testing lab behind INFORMED-CHOICE. Extensive and long-term testing has been conducted on nearly every lot produced, and all tested lots have been negative for contamination. More information on HFL's testing is available here.
HFL (and INFORMED-CHOICE) offers the ONLY supplement testing program that uses a WADA-experienced lab and ISO 17025 accredited analytical methods to analyse for banned substances. More information on the program is available here.
SaltStick Caps are produced in a cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practices) facility, certified by the Natural Products Association and registered NSF Certified for Sport®. Between each production run, machines in this contract lab are cleaned based on cGMP compliant cleaning procedures, as well as all other handling steps. This ensures the quality of the final product is of the highest pharmaceutical standard.
More insight into the importance of cGMP supplement production, analytical testing and sources of contamination can be found in a 3-part series of articles written for the multisport website Slowtwich.com. Links to the articles can be found below or in the Media section.
