October 29/13 14:39 pm - Report Released on Potentially Harmful Craze Supplement


Posted by Editoress on 10/29/13
 

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) would like to alert the sport community about the findings of a study conducted by NSF International, Harvard Medical School and the National Institute for Public Health and Environment, on a nutritional supplement called Craze.

According to the research, Craze, by Driven Sports, contains a substance called N,alpha-diethylphenylethylamine (N,a-DEPEA) which is not listed on the label and "has a structure similar to methamphetamine."

A link to the article outlining the results of the study can be found Here.

The CCES believes the use of most supplements poses an unacceptable risk for athletes and their athletic career. Ultimately, athletes are responsible for any prohibited substance that may be found in their sample; this is known as strict liability. If athletes who use supplements test positive for a prohibited substance, this can result in a violation being declared, regardless of how the prohibited substance got into their body. Serious sanctions may be imposed.

For more information on supplements, visit www.cces.ca/en/supplements.
