-- NSF International, a not for profit testing and health agency recently certified ActiGin, NuLiv Science's sports endurance ingredient. NSF was founded in 1944 to protect and improve global human health. More popularly known for their seal of approval on consumer appliances and water systems, NSF is now the leading global health & testing agency for many consumer products. With the growth and explosion in the supplement market, accompanied by unfortunate news of contaminants, mislabeling and even deaths attributed to supplement use, NSF also now tests ingredients found in the supplement industry.
ActiGin is a unique sports nutrition ingredient proven in multiple research studies including a randomized placebo controlled human clinical to support enhanced glycogen delivery to muscle tissues, increased exercise to exhaustion time up to 20% and reduce inflammation markers such as IL-6 and MDA by up to 44% post exercise. Already used by leading athletes including a two time winner of the ultramarathon LeadVille 100, ActiGin is now safe for use by all amateur or pro athletes.
Certification by NSF includes a rigorous testing process by accredited laboratories in the United States. All materials are sent to NSF and then evaluated to make products contain no undeclared ingredients or unacceptable levels of contaminants such as heavy metals and pesticides. NSF also conducts a label claim review to certify that what’s on the label is in the bottle and a toxicology review to certify product formulation.
Independent certification is the only way to assure and verify that consumers are getting exactly what's stated on the product label while ensuring that the supplement is relatively free of any adulterants and contaminants. NSF testing and certification on supplements is accepted by the NFL, MLB and PGA.
