About Us

If an athlete needs to take a supplement then they must make sure it has been tested for banned substances, to ensure compliance with anti-doping guidelines in their sport. Failure to do so may result in failing a doping test.

The use of dietary supplements by athletes is a concern because in many countries the manufacturing and labelling of supplements may not follow strict rules, which may lead to a supplement containing an undeclared substance that is prohibited under anti-doping regulations. A significant number of positive tests have been attributed to the misuse of supplements and taking a poorly labelled dietary supplement is not an adequate defence in a doping hearing. 

The issue of contaminated products has been acknowledged in the 2015 WADA code. If an athlete can establish no significant fault or negligence then the sanction can range from a reprimand to a maximum of two years. 

Tested Sports Safe was developed by Irish health food company Naturalife to reassure elite and aspiring athletes that the food supplements they take are independently tested and certified for prohibited substances and are manufactured to high quality standards.

Any product that carries the Tested Sports Safe logo is certified as Sports Safe. It is guaranteed to have passed a rigorous, independent testing process by a world-class sports anti-doping laboratory.

The laboratory  we use has over 50 years of expertise in anti-doping in sport. With many years of research into doping control, they have published over 300 scientific papers on methods for detection of trace levels of substances that are prohibited in sport. Learn more about the testing process

Alan Brogan, brand ambassador for Cleanmarine® For Men, has the following advice to athletes and sports players;

“There can be confusion around sports supplements and it’s important both elite and aspiring athletes continue to be educated on checking that the products they take are tested to WADA standards. With Sports Safe testing, athletes taking Cleanmarine® For Men and Cleanmarine® For Women can rest assured that both products are rigorously tested and safe to take.

Cora Staunton, current player with Mayo GAA Ladies Senior team added;

“As a sports player, we are always advised to look for WADA approved products to minimise the risk of taking contaminated supplements, so I was very happy to see that Naturalife had introduced the Tested Sports Safe® logo, making it easy for athletes to see at a glance what products are safe to take when shopping in Health Food Stores and Pharmacies and the online technology to check batch numbers in one easy step. It’s a good practice for all athletes, whether amateur or professional, to undertake and only takes a few minutes”
