Recoverben® - "negative" tested for banned substances

Recoverben® has been tested for banned substances by LGC's world-class sports anti-doping laboratory. Within the limitations of the analysis, none of the listed drugs were found.

Sports and Doping

In summer 1998 the world of cycling was shocked because all top three riders were taken banned substances. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) decided to convene a World Conference on Doping, bringing together all parties involved in the fight against doping. The outcome was the Lausanne Declaration on Doping in Sport, resulting in the foundation of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) in 1999, to promote and coordinate the fight against doping in sport internationally. Since 2004 WADA has published an annual list of prohibited substances and methods in sports. The substances and methods on the list are classified by different categories (e.g., steroids, stimulants, gene doping).

Food supplements and Doping

Also food supplements could be “contaminated” with doping substances, introduced by purpose, by cross-contaminations or being naturally present in natural products. This has led to a situation where most international sports bodies advise athletes to abstain from using any nutritional supplements. This advice is deemed unsatisfactory by most athletes and nutritional experts, as supplements can help athletes to meet their nutritional needs.
