Human Sports Performance®

Human Sports Performance® is a consortium of world renowned professionals, including top experts in sports performance and sports nutrition, scientists, clinical researchers, physicians, and certified teachers.


Strategy

Created though an elective initiative, Human Sports Performance® key activities include scientific research, education, development of anti-doping programs and human maximum performance programs, working with youth athletes and their parents, and Testing & Certification programs for sports supplement manufacturers.

The Human Sports Performance® (HSP) Anti-Doping Program was developed to:


Prevent the use of illegal, dangerous banned anti-doping ingredients in dietary supplements, beverages, sports drinks, sports snacks, and Nutraceuticals
Support the global use of safe sports supplements for athletes of all ages, in all sports
Participate in the global fight against doping in sports
Provide alternative methodologies to athletes and trainers in achieving natural maximum sports performance


Global Fight for the Rights of Athletes

Many national and international agencies have integrated forces to fight for the rights of athletes. One of the major problems facing athletes is the ingestion of sports drinks and other sports supplements, which contain non-labeled banned substances.

Currently, athletes are ingesting illegal and banned substances unknowingly, and facing the consequences. This is due to rogue companies who knowingly allow the addition of dangerous and illegal ingredients in sports supplements.

Nutraceuticals and sports supplements marketed to the public have been shown to contain banned substances. The FDA aggressively pursues the distribution of illegal supplements, but the plethora of dietary supplements available on the market is overwhelming and thus difficult to identify.

Truth in labeling has become a major issue for the FDA, as many sports supplements do not contain what is stated on the product label.



World Anti-Doping Code


The World Anti-Doping Code was implemented in 2004, which facilitated specific anti-doping rules and regulations governing all sports and all countries.

Currently, more than 600 sports organizations, including international sports federations, national anti-doping organizations, the International Olympic Committee (IOC), and the International Paralympic Committee. Many other global professional leagues in various countries have also adopted the Code.

The Code was unanimously adopted by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and endorsed by the 1,500 delegates present on November 17, 2007, the final day of the Third World Conference on Doping in Sport, in Madrid, Spain. The revisions to the Code took effect on January 1, 2009.

In support of this effort, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) publishes a comprehensive list of Prohibited & Banned Substances, and is the premier authority on the use of illegal substances used by athletes (www.wada-ama.org).



Statement from USADA on Truth-In-Labeling


Travis Tygart, the Chief Executive Officer of the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) stated their willingness and desire to work with the supplement industry to enforce truth-in-labeling.

Tygart stated that ‘confidence killers’ such as steroid contamination and truth-in-labeling issues meant that the USADA is a long way from endorsing sports supplements for athletes in the United States.

In regards to truth-in-labeling, Tygart said that the illegal use of banned substances in sports products had, “…created an environment where athletes can’t simply trust what they are getting through a dietary supplement they may choose to contain what it says on the label…”

In an effort to prevent and expose the use of illegal and banned substances in sports supplements, Human Sports Performance® has created various programs which address the important issues in sports.
