Approved Supplements for Sport

Informed Sports Products

 

What is Informed-Sport?

Purity is one of the most essential considerations when choosing supplements for sport. The Informed-Sport programme allows athletes, and those involved in sport, to choose products that are rigorously tested, batch by batch, for contaminants and WADA (World-Anti-Doping-Agency) banned substances to ensure that they are safe to use.

I’m not a professional athlete – do I need supplements?

Whatever level at which you participate in your chosen physical activity, it is now widely accepted that the addition of key nutritional supplements to any exercise regime can be beneficial to health. The consumption of potentially contaminated supplements presents a genuine concern for athletes and sporting authorities, but they can also be a potential health risk to any consumer.

 

Which supplements do I need?

The ‘normal balanced diet’ may not provide nutrients in sufficient quantities, and extra demand on the body through training and competing can deplete them even faster. Athletes and physically active individuals would therefore benefit from taking high quality supplements, backed by scientific credibility. One A Day Vitamins & Minerals, BioAcidophilus Forte, Mega EPA, Vitamin C 1000 and Glucosamine Hydrochloride all have Informed-Sport accreditation and truly support the foundations of health.

Foundation nutrition for sport

Our informed-Sport supplements have been selected to support the most important foundations to health and performance.

 

One A Day Vitamins & MineralsBikes

Provides optimum levels of many essential nutrients including iron, zinc, selenium and B vitamins. It can be used as a simple maintenance supplement to cover any shortfalls in dietary intake, or as a foundation upon which other more specific nutrients can be added. One A Day Vitamins & Minerals provides all key nutrients in their most bio-available forms and has the added benefit of additional ingredients in the form of lutein, bilberry and beta carotene for additional immune support.

BioAcidophilus Forte

A high potency blend of the LAB4 complex of ‘friendly’ probiotic bacteria in a convenient capsule containing 30 billion probiotic organisms. Our unique LAB4 probiotics consisting of Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium lactis have been extensively tested and are clinically proven.

Mega EPA

A high potency capsule containing omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) from pure fish oil, suitable for daily use. EPA and DHA are essential fatty acids that contribute to many biochemical functions within the body. Mega EPA utilises NEO-3™ - an exceptionally effective enzymatic concentration technique, resulting in a fish oil of outstanding purity and high potency, whilst retaining its natural triglyceride form and ratio of EPA:DHA.

BikesVitamin C 1000

A high potency, low acidity vitamin C, together with added bioflavonoids including bilberry and grapeseed extract in a single tablet. Ascorbic acid is combined with magnesium to make it gentler on the stomach and is then freeze dried to maintain freshness and stability. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that can help protect cells against oxidative damage and supports the normal function of the immune system.

Glucosamine Hydrochloride

Provides the recommended 1500mg of glucosamine per daily intake in its preferred form, alongside vitamin C which contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones and cartilage. Healthy joint function is dependent on the integrity of the spongy cartilage tissue as well as the lubricating properties of the synovial fluid.
