The Momentous Minute with Tim Caron
Scott Iardella:
Today's Momentous Minute is with Tim Caron, the owner of Allegiate Gym and performance engineer at Momentous, the sports nutrition company on a mission to clean up the supplement industry.
The question today is about the NSF certification. What is important to know about the NSF certification on product labels and can you please explain what it is?
Tim Caron:
The NSF is a third-party group that evaluates products and how we're looking at supplements. A lot of it's unregulated so we need to have some sort of intervention in regards to saying what the ingredients are, saying that they actually have them, someone following through with them, and why that's important for you as a customer. Potentially you're an athlete, potentially you're someone who's under the guidelines of testing and seeing if you're actually under other substances that are not conducive to a competitive and equal playing field.
NSF comes in and meets us in the middle in providing a service that makes companies hold themselves to a higher standard and the process to go through that is fairly rigorous. Having that piece of mind, knowing that a company went that extra step to actually really follow through and have integrity to make sure that they're providing really high quality products that actually say what they mean, that makes a big difference.
As an athlete, as someone who's competitive, or just wants a higher quality, NSF is something you should really look for in your supplements.
