BodyHealth's PerfectAmino Cleared for Professional Sports

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, October 5, 2016—PerfectAmino, by Clearwater, Florida-based BodyHealth has been tested and successfully cleared for a wide range of substances banned by WADA (the World Anti-Doping Agency) by Lexington, Kentucky-based LGC Science (Formerly HFL Sport Science), a world-class doping control laboratory with over 52 years of experience in drug surveillance in sports.

LGC’s testing specification has been developed based on the analysis of well over 55,000 supplement samples as well as research into supplement contamination levels and positive drug tests within professional sports on a global basis. LGC’s  testing capability for supplements and dietary ingredients includes analysis for a broad range of banned substances (steroids, stimulants, diuretics, masking agents, etc.).

LGC has identified 147 core substances that may occur as contaminants in supplements, and these are tested using ISO17025 accredited methods. All of these substances appear on the WADA Prohibited List, as well as lists from organizations such as the NFL, NCAA, MLB, NBA, MLS, PGA and NHL.

In a random test conducted of PerfectAmino (Lot #6H48), none of these substances were found to be present.

The testing methods for all samples tested through LGC can detect banned substance contaminants at levels of just 10 ng/g (10 parts per billion) or lower. This is similar to a teaspoon of a substance dropped into an OLYMPIC sized swimming pool! The detection limits indicated are widely considered to be those necessary to re-assure the athlete that they are not taking undue risks.

“PerfectAmino's tablets clean bill of health not only speaks to the supplement’s purity and safety, but also gives strong assurance to elite and professional athletes that our amino-acid supplement has been cleared for use before, during and after competitive and sanctioned events,” said BodyHealth founder, Dr. David Minkoff, M.D., a 41-time Ironman triathlon finisher (including 8 appearances at the Ironman World Championships) who has first-hand experience helping athletes achieve optimum conditioning.
