Like all Vital Choice Salmon Oil supplements, the NSF mark on our new Certified for Sport™ supplement means that it's free of hazardous levels of contaminants, including mercury and PCBs.
(All Vital Choice omega-3 supplements feature the same pure, natural, unrefined sockeye salmon oil, and the purity and potency of each one is certified NSF.)
But only our new Salmon Oil + Vitamin D3 supplement is also Certified for Sport™ by NSF.
Why we chose NSF
Leading sports leagues and associations like these have authorized their athletes to use NSF Certified for Sport™ supplements:
- Major League Baseball
- MLB Players' Association
- National Football League
- NFL Players' Association
- The PGA and LPGA
- Canadian Center for Ethics in Sports
The NSF Certified for Sport™ program
has four key components:
Banned substance screening for products intended for professional and elite athletes.
Good Manufacturing Practices audits of the production facility.
Toxicological reviews of the product’s formulation and substantiation of any product claims.
Annual label claim tests to ensure the product is meeting its declared nutritional values and is free from toxic contaminants.
The NSF Mark is only placed on products that meet all four of these components, and ongoing monitoring helps ensure continued compliance.
