What does banned substance tested mean?

As the business grows, POWERAMP promises not to sacrifice sustainability and remain committed to offering products that are most, GMO-free and contain no artificial flavours or colours. POWERAMP plans to start by developing the best rehydration drink we know how to make.

"Banned substance tested" refers to a process or program in which individuals or athletes are tested to ensure that they have not used any substances that are prohibited or banned by a particular organization, sport’s governing body, or regulatory authority.

This testing is often conducted to maintain fair competition, ensure the safety of participants, and uphold the integrity of the sport or activity.

Banned substances can include performance-enhancing drugs, recreational drugs, and other substances that are deemed to provide an unfair advantage, pose health risks, or violate the rules of the organization overseeing the competition. Testing typically involves collecting samples, such as urine or blood, from individuals, and then analyzing those samples for the presence of banned substances.

Athletes and participants in various sports and competitions are often subject to random or scheduled drug tests to detect and deter the use of prohibited substances. Those who are found to have used banned substances may face penalties, including disqualification, suspension, fines, or other consequences, depending on the rules and policies of the specific organization or governing body.

The Problem:

33 athletes in New Zealand are currently facing bans from their sporting codes for the possession or use of performance– enhancing drugs. Most claim innocence and then blame their coaches or trainers for recommending a supplement, which they then suggest, must have been contaminated with a banned substance.

Currently, there is no comprehensive range of sports supplements and hydration products sold in New Zealand designed to meet the specific needs of high performance athletes and are also is tested for the presence of banned substances.

The Solution:

PowerAMP® has developed a comprehensive range, (currently FIVE supplements and ONE hypotonic fluid replacement beverage) focused on the training and competition demands of high performance athletes.

PowerAMP® is tested by an independent, WADA1-approved testing laboratory (Informed-Sport; UK). Our formulations are created in New Zealand to the highest GMP standards and also supported by the latest research in sports nutrition. PowerAMP® is the only fully dedicated sports nutrition brand, developed specifically to meet needs of high performance and endurance athletes. 1. WADA means World Anti-Doping Agency.



“The World Anti-Doping Code outlines that each athlete is obliged to ascertain that no banned substance has entered into his organism.” He/she is personally responsible for any banned substances found in his/her sample.
