BodyHealth’s PerfectAmino Cleared for Professional Athletes

November 2, 2016

LGC Science has tested and cleared PerfectAmino for the wide range of substances banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency.

PerfectAmino, an amino-acid supplement designed for the sports-nutrition market from BodyHealth (Clearwater, FL), has now been tested and successfully cleared by LGC Science (Lexington, KY) for the wide range of substances banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). With that confirmation that PerfectAmino is free of banned substances, including steroids, stimulants, diuretics, masking agents, and more, BodyHealth says the product is more appropriate for elite athletes than ever.

“PerfectAmino’s 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 David Minkoff, MD, founder of BodyHealth, in the press announcement.

LGC’s testing method identifies 147 core illicit substances that have been identified on the WADA Prohibited List or by other professional sports organizations, including the NFL, MLB, NBA, and more. Its testing capability is able to detect banned substance contaminants at levels of just 10 parts per billion (10 ng/g) or less.

PerfectAmino contains all eight of the essential amino acids in ratios designed to “support and maintain [the body’s] muscular, skeletal, enzymatic, and hormonal systems,” according to BodyHealth.
