U.S. Regulatory Guidelines

Why is third-party certification important?

Third-party certification is validation and proof that the “product” has met the  standards as set forth by the certifier and said product is in compliance with the applicable code and law.

 

Third Party Certification demonstrates independent validation of regulatory and national standards as set forth by the said government regulations, such as the U.S. FDA (product labeling-CFR 21 Guidelines), U.S. FTC (claims), and/or NSF Approval and Certification), ISO Certification for quality management or organic certification for food products.

National Science Foundation (NSF) Certification

One of the most important and significant certification organizations in the world is NSF.

 

NSF International's Certified for Sport® program tests and certifies nutritional supplements used by athletes in Major League Baseball (MLB), the National Football League (NFL), the Professional Golf Association (PGA), the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) and the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES).

U.S. Anti-Doping Agency & NSF
Certified for SPORT®

The USADA currently recognized the NSF Certified for SPORT® as the program best suited for athletes to reduce the risk from supplements. For more information, see USADA Athlete Advisory and NSF FAQ.

FDA Regulatory The Food and Drug Administration

The FDA regulates both finished dietary supplement products and dietary ingredients. FDA regulates dietary supplements under a different set of regulations than those covering "conventional" foods and drug products.

The Glycemic Research Institute® & Legal Certification Marks

The Glycemic Research Institute® Certifications, Human In Vivo Clinical Trials, and Sports Certifications comply with FDA Regulatory guidelines and has submitted their R & D Sports Drinks to NSF for Independent Certifications for NSF CERTIFIED FOR SPORT, which were awarded the NSF for Sport Certification.

 

LEGAL Certification Marks: The Glycemic Research Institute® Certifications are registered in the category of  “Product-Specific” as duly recognized by the U.S. Government (USPTO.gov). The Glycemic Research Institute® registered Certification Mark has been extended from 2020 to 2033 by the U.S. Government.
