Third Party Tested Dietary Supplements

Dietary supplementation is a concern with high performance athletes because of the potential risk of undeclared ingredients in a supplement that may lead to a positive doping outcome. Therefore, the Canadian Sport Institute Calgary has had some dietary supplements tested in a lab that uses current World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) standards to ensure the lowest risk of supplement contamination. However, since not every container of supplement was tested in this WADA accredited lab, there is still a small risk of potential supplement contamination. If a Canadian Sport Institute Calgary athlete chooses to purchase tested supplement(s) please follow these steps:
