Since our inception, we promised that we will never produce a product which is banned for drug tested sports. Today we take yet another step to conclusively prove to all that our products are truly pure and untainted by any banned substance.

In addition to its comprehensive drug-testing protection, BSCG’s protocol includes a Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) quality-control process review, raw material ingredient and supplier review, and a general toxicology assessment.

THE SYSTEM™”, formulated by multi-time I.P.F. World Champion and Lifetime Drug-Free Athlete, Dennis Cieri is a revolutionary three-stage supplement series delivering necessary nutrients before, during and after high-energy workouts. “THE SYSTEM™” provides active athletes an optimal blend of vitamins, minerals and nutrients; at the precise time the body needs them.

The PRE-Workout Formula addresses the critical needs of the body before and during physical exertion by enhancing energy levels, establishing focus, increasing strength, improving endurance, creating muscular contractions, and assisting in maintenance of hydration throughout the workout. Research shows that taking essential amino acids, vitamins, proteins and carbohydrates before a workout increases muscle protein synthesis, anabolism, and intensity during a workout.

The POST-Workout Formula. Experts conclusively agree that post-workout nutrients are the most important part of the day’s nutrition. SSPs POST-Workout Formula helps scavenge free radicals, repair muscle cells and enhance growth potential during this short-lived anabolic window. Carbohydrates are the most important macronutrient for post-workout ingestion. Greatest recovery occurs when an athlete takes a 3:1 carbohydrate/protein ratio immediately after a workout. SSPs POST-Workout Formula provides this strategic blend of nutrients that are just what the muscles need after intense exertion, allowing your body to effectively recover.

The LEAN MUSCLE MEAL-Workout Formula is designed for the period where one workout ends and another begins. During this growth phase, the muscles are in the process of utilizing protein to repair muscle fiber while also replenishing any glycogen not already replaced with the SSP POST-Workout Formula. Carbohydrate and protein consumption is key in order to maintain optimal muscle growth. Taking a whey/casein protein blend along with carbohydrates during this phase keeps the muscles in a prolonged anabolic state, restoring muscle glycogen, repairing muscle damage, and leading to the synthesis of new muscle.

BSCG (Banned Substances Control Group) was founded in 2004 by world-renowned Olympic drug-testing pioneer Dr. Don Catlin and his son, executive Oliver Catlin, to offer reputable supplement manufacturers, suppliers, and distributors a third-party program to establish that their products are free of banned substance concerns and to provide consumers and athletes help in ensuring that what they’re consuming will not endanger their health or lead to positive drug tests. BSCG brings the Olympic standard of contaminant testing, label verification, and quality control to dietary supplements and natural products.
