The BSCG Certified Drug Free® Testing Menu targets drugs on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List. The WADA Prohibited List governs Olympic sport and is used by all national anti-doping organizations (NADOs) including ASADA, UKAD, and USADA. It serves as a model for sport federations, professional leagues, college, military, and vocational drug testing programs, which ban many of the compounds on the WADA Prohibited List. This drug free certification provides maximum security to general consumers, as well as to athletes and professionals across the spectrum of WADA, NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA, WNBA, PGA, LPGA, MLS, ATP, WTA, FIFA, FINA, AFL, NRL, NASCAR, UFC, CrossFit, NCAA, military, law enforcement, and other drug-testing programs.
“EMPACT+ is the best pre-/during workout supplement I have ever used,” said Ike Boettger, an offensive lineman for the National Football League’s Buffalo Bills. “No jolts of energy, just constant focus and energy for hours at a time -- without sugar, caffeine or stimulants.* I can’t use any other energy product and don’t want to. I use it every day before practice and games. Other players in the league are starting to ask about it now.”¹
“I love EMPACT+,” said Sydney Benner, International Fitness Instructor and creator of the Flight workout. “It’s vegan, it’s gluten free, all natural, and no sugar. I’ve been drinking it, pre-class, all week long. I feel super hydrated and energized throughout the entire workout. I cannot recommend this product enough.”2
“Before we introduced EMPACT+, serious athletes would take one product before exercise, and a second product during exercise, and then yet another product after exercise to aid in recovery,” explained Al Bala, President and CEO at Mannatech. “EMPACT+ is the world’s first fitness product that does it all. It combines fueling, hydration and recovery in one drink and increases endurance, postpones exhaustion and reduces recovery time.”*†
