You can find ACN products that have been tested for banned
substances by looking for either the BSF "Banned Substance Free" logos on the product’s packaging.
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), along with many major sporting
leagues, maintains lists of substances and technologies that are banned
in sports nutrition products due to their performance-enhancing effects
that could be used to provide an unfair advantage.
To see the WADA Prohibited List, go to www.wada-ama.org and click on the Prohibited List link.
The WADA Prohibited List is specifically designed for urine analysis
and refers to substances found in urine (i.e., after the substance has
passed through the body). The body may convert some or all of the
substance to other compounds as it moves through the body’s system.
Furthermore, not all of the substances on the WADA Prohibited
List are able to be present in a supplement product. When analyzing a
supplement for contaminants, the Prohibited List is unable to act as a
checklist for all prohibited substances against which products should be
screened—meaning that supplement analysis cannot guard against
contamination of untried, untested and unknown designer drugs.
Although it is not possible to test for all substances on the
WADA Prohibited List, HFL’s experience in testing over 30,000 samples
and its close relationship with the WADA community has helped to
identify a list of banned substances that will maintain product
Not necessarily. You should always check the rules and regulations of
the league or organization with which you must be compliant since its
list of banned substances may differ from the substances tested by ACN
