What NSF Certified For Sport Means For You | BodyHealth PerfectAmino Now NSF Certified

BodyHealth PerfectAmino 300ct tablet bottles are officially NSF Certified for Sport!

What NSF Certified for Sport® Means for You

We are proud to announce that BodyHealth PerfectAmino® 300ct Tablets are NSF Certified for Sport, the premier certification designation for nutritional products approved by major sports at the professional level.

We've known since the beginning that BodyHealth PerfectAmino was safe for athletes who undergo rigorous testing, but knowing and being certified are two different distinctions.

  • Are you an athlete with a concern for certified products safe for use in your field of sport?
  • Are you a Vegan concerned a product is truly certified for you?
  • Are you concerned about toxins, impurities & contaminants in your supplements?
  • After so many companies exposed for ingredients not matching bottle claims, are you looking for a company with verified products?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, then you're in luck, as BodyHealth PerfectAmino is now certified as the product best for your protein needs and officially meets all of the standards we've been touting since the beginning.

BodyHealth PerfectAmino 300ct tablet bottles are now NSF Certified for Sport and there are 5 reasons why that’s good for you.

  1. Guaranteed Free From Banned Substances.

    NSF Certified For Sport® means a product has gone through rigorous testing confirming the total absence of over 270 substances that are currently banned by most major athletic organizations. MLB, NHL and CFL clubs are permitted to provide and recommend only products that are Certified for Sport®. Certified for Sport® is also recommended by the NFL, PGA, LPGA, CCES, CPSDA, Taylor Hooton Foundation and many other sports organizations.

    Certified for Sport® is the only independent third-party certification program recognized by Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association. MLB and MLBPA recognize NSF as the gold standard in supplement certification.

  2. WYSIWYG! What You See (On The Label) Is What You Get.

    Unfortunately, Nutrition Facts labels are not always factual. For starters, the law allows a pretty lax margin of error—up to 20 percent—for the stated value versus actual value of nutrients. In reality, that means a 100-calorie pack item, theoretically, contain up to 120 calories and still not be violating the law.

    In a WEBMd Article, they report that “More than half of the herbal and dietary supplements analyzed by researchers contained ingredients that differed from the list on their labels. Some had hidden ingredients that might actually harm health, researchers said. Bodybuilding and weight-loss supplements, in particular, tended to contain ingredients not listed on their packaging”.

  3. GMP Registered Facility

    The product is manufactured at a facility that is GMP registered and audited twice annually for quality and safety by NSF International.

    "GMP Certification. Good manufacturing practice (GMP) is a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. It is designed to minimize the risks involved in any pharmaceutical production that cannot be eliminated through testing the final product."

  4. Clean and free from contaminants.

    There are no unsafe levels of contaminants in the tested products and the product can be used with confidence it's free from dangerous or harmful ingredients. NSF Certified For Sport® batch testing screens for hundreds of contaminants and banned substances.

  5. Trust the product, trust the product line, trust the maker.

    Your average consumer may not have a concern for NSF Certified For Sport® designation, but it's something that impacts all product users.  We might just certify our 300ct bottles so as not to impact product pricing, but all sizes and varieties of PerfectAmino are made of the exact same ingredients and in the same facilities.

    NSF Certified For Sport® for our whole line would have impacted all product retail pricing and for only those concerned with certification. Concentrating on our primary product used in sport in our economical size, has this not impact cost for any of our product users.

Please note: Only PerfectAmino 300 count tablet bottles have been NSF Certified for Sport, however all of our PerfectAmino products are made in the same lab with the same ingredients at the same time, with the same, high-quality standards.

If NSF certification is not a requirement for you, add variety to your amino acid supplementation and shop our other PerfectAmino products confidently, knowing you're getting a premium product with all the same love and consideration!

Biohacking Kidney and Liver Disease
Biohacking Kidney and Liver Disease

According to the CDC, 37 million people in the US have chronic kidney disease [1]. And 90% of them don’t even know it. Kidney disease creates protein toxicity.

An estimated 100 million Americans live with impaired liver function and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease [2]. And since the year 2000, deaths from liver cirrhosis have gone up a shocking 19.5% [3]. 

The liver is critical for processing the toxic byproducts of protein metabolism.

Everyone is affected by this. Continue reading now!

Consistency: The Key Ingredient to Building Endurance
Consistency: The Key Ingredient to Building Endurance

The principle of reaping what we sow is certainly relevant to any effort requiring endurance. A Hail Mary might occasionally work on the football field (think Doug Flutie), but don’t expect that kind of miracle while participating in a 5k, half-marathon or marathon.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about endurance, it’s that it can’t be faked for long. Things have a tendency of shaking out fairly quickly. We know when someone has put in the work.

As heavyweight boxing great Mike Tyson once said, “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.”

Maintenance Required: Eat, Sleep, Drink, and Move Your Way Through 2020

In the nearly 8 years that my wife and I have lived in Colorado Springs, never have we seen the amount of road construction currently taking place. Whether it’s a main road or side street, there’s no part of town missing out on the “fun”. And it’s not just re-paving or patching potholes. Whole lanes are being ripped up with miles of digging in order to replace underground pipes of all varieties.

At first, I thought all the “weed” sales (pot is legal in Colorado) might be producing the influx of tax funds for all this construction. But a running buddy of mine made me aware of a bill that had passed in the last couple years which freed up an enormous amount of funds for these projects.

Turns out the city has a certain amount of time to spend the money. Based on the number of orange cones and “ROAD WORK AHEAD” signs, it looks as though no penny is being spared.
