Mix1 Receives BSCG Certification

December 11, 2014


Third-party BSCG is the gold standard in dietary supplement certification

(LOS ANGELES)– The protein shakes manufactured and distributed by mix1 Life, Inc. (MIXX) have been certified by BSCG (Banned Substances Control Group) under its Certified Drug Free® program, it was announced today by BSCG and mix1.

“We are proud that mix1’s products have been certified by BSCG for use by consumers and athletes,” said Cameron Robb, CEO of mix1. “BSCG is the most highly regarded certification program that tests supplement products and audits supplement manufacturers.”

Considered by many to be the gold standard in the industry, BSCG’s Certified Drug Free® program is especially rigorous, testing for more than 207 drugs banned by sporting groups including WADA, NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA, MLS, PGA, LPGA, NCAA. BSCG also covers 185 prescription and over-the-counter drugs not banned in sport, making it the only certification provider to do so.

“Samples of mix1 products have been analyzed for a complete list of drugs prohibited by sport including those banned by WADA, USADA, NHL, NFL, MLB, MLS, PGA, LPGA, NCAA, NASCAR and other drug testing programs. No prohibited compounds were detected,” stated Oliver Catlin, President of BSCG in Los Angeles, CA. “As a result, the mix1 products may now carry the BSCG Certified Drug Free® seal letting customers know that the company and its finished products have met rigorous quality standards above and beyond industry requirements.”

Supplement use is up over the past few years, according to surveys, but government agencies such as the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) do not test the majority of such products. Not only can hidden substances be dangerous but athletes are held liable for any banned substance found during drug testing, regardless of its origin. No product BSCG has certified has ever resulted in a positive drug test.

“Athletes must be extremely careful about what they put into their bodies,” said Brad Robb, Sports Marketing Executive of mix1. “We have found that a substantial number of athletes feel supplements are a vital part of their training regimen, so we take the extra step to ensure our products are safe for them as well as consumers at large.”

BSCG (Banned Substances Control Group) is a leading third-party dietary supplement certification provider founded in 2004 by renowned sports anti-doping pioneer Don Catlin, M.D., his son, industry leader Oliver Catlin, and respected Los Angeles attorney Ryan Connolly. In addition to its thorough, science-based testing menu, BSCG also regularly tests products for label verification, identity and contaminants and audits manufacturers for Good Manufacturing Practices(GMP) compliance.

Supplement Certification Provider Offers New Safeguards

December 1, 2014


(Los Angeles) – BSCG (Banned Substances Control Group), a leading independent dietary supplement certification provider for more than a decade, announced today that it has broadened its services to include a range of new protections. The company’s expanded offerings include a broadened testing menu that is unique to the industry, targeted protection for consumers and animals, Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) audits and label verification and contaminant testing.

In addition to its comprehensive and finely tuned testing menu for competitive athletes, BSCG will now provide testing for an array of problematic prescription and over-the-counter drugs in supplement products to help protect consumers at large. BSCG becomes the first supplement certification company to extend its protections to focus on drugs relevant to the general consumer.

“Since the FDA was finding a lot drugs not banned in sport during their own testing of products, we decided to include those drugs and related substances in our menu,” said Oliver Catlin, BSCG President. “By adding these drugs to our supplement certification program, BSCG is addressing important concerns in the supplement industry and adding significant protection for all those who consume our certified supplements.”

The expanded testing menu will include more than 392 compounds; 207 banned in sport and 185 prescription and over-the-counter drugs not banned in sport. This menu offers the broadest protection available in the supplement certification industry against substances prohibited by WADA, NFL, MLB, PGA, LPGA, NHL, MLS, NCAA, NASCAR and others. BSCG not only becomes the first certification program to safeguard against drugs not banned in sport but it is doing so in a sizable way.

In addition, BSCG becomes the first group to offer a comprehensive screen for equine and canine supplements and drug products to protect horses and dogs. The company now tests such products for approximately 1,200 substances banned by the leading authority, the Federation Equine International (FEI).

“Animals, including those that race for sport, are consuming supplements at increasing rates and contamination issues are a growing concern, so we wanted to provide protection in the animal arena as well,” said Catlin. “We are pleased to be the first dietary supplement certification provider to offer testing for this expanded menu of drugs.”

BSCG has also added to its certification program a Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) audit and annual testing for label claims and contamination. With the guidelines of the FDA’s 21 C.F.R. 111- G.M.P. during the past decade has come a renewed focus on ensuring that supplement products meet ingredient and finished product specifications for identity, purity, strength and composition and that they have been appropriately tested for potential contamination.

“Supplement authorities and companies, sporting regulators and athletes and all consumers deserve to know that a supplement certification program not only ensures that a product is drug free but that it meets label claim and contamination specifications and standards,” said Catlin. “BSCG recognizes the importance of these quality control elements and is pleased to include them as part our supplement certification services.”

BSCG is a highly regarded, science-based, third-party certification provider of dietary supplements founded in 2004 by renowned sports anti-doping pioneer Don Catlin, M.D., his son, industry leader Oliver Catlin, and respected Los Angeles attorney Ryan Connolly. The industry’s complete quality control solution, the BSCG Certified Drug Free®program allows manufacturers to establish their brands as safe, reputable and drug free and helps consumers and athletes make informed supplement choices.
