Some commonalties among these governing bodies include banned substances which fall into one or more of the following categories as listed in Section I A-E of the UCI Prohibited Classes of substance and Prohibited Methods document. A) Stimulants B) Narcotics C) Anabolic agents D) Diuretics and E) Peptide hormones, mimetics and analogues. This document goes on to list banned substances within each of these classes. Regulations also ban 'Compounds chemically or pharmacologically related to the products mentioned'.
OPTYGEN-HP contains NO ingredients, which are explicitly listed under the banned substance list, nor are any of the ingredients related chemically or pharmacologically. First Endurance has also contacted the USADA and received verbal confirmation that our ingredients are not banned based on their regulations. Note: USADA, WADA and UCI do not offer any certification or written confirmation.
First Endurance manufactures its formulations to the highest GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) standards available. In addition we use a proprietary manufacturing method for added safety and assurance. Following the Supplement Facts panel you will notice we list 'NO processing aids' under Other Ingredients. The only ingredients found in Optygen, are those listed in the Supplement Facts Panel.
Part XIV Article 7 of the Anti-doping Examination Regulations contains the following warning: riders must refrain from using any substance, foodstuff or drink of which they do not know the composition. It must be emphasized that the composition indicated on a product is not always complete. The product may contain prohibited substances not listed in the composition.
Q: Why are the capsules red?
Q: Why is the bottle glass instead of plastic?
Q: How should I use Optygen-HP?
Q: Is it OK to use OPTYGEN-HP everyday even though it has phosphates in the formula?
OPTYGEN-HP's ATPro matrix is designed to assure Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP) production. All the ingredients in the ATPro matrix play critical roles in ATP formation, including Sodium and Potassium Phosphate. The phosphate levels used in OPTYGEN-HP on their own are not enough to elicit an ergogenic response, nor are they enough to affect PH balance or Calcium absorption.
Q: Are First Endurance products safe from Cross Contamination?
Realize that nothing is absolute. When you purchase any packaged food you have a risk of a contaminated product. Packaged foods, pharmaceutical companies, OTC products and supplements use many of the same ingredient suppliers. IE The cereal you eat in the morning is fortified with vitamins which come from the same supplier of vitamins found in your multivitamin. Some vitamin suppliers also supply pro-hormones. The key is to minimize your risk. First Endurance takes all the available steps to assure there is no cross contamination.
At First Endurance we take all the necessary steps to prevent this.
a) Our manufacturing and packaging facilities do not allow a single banned substance (except caffeine) to enter the facility.
b) First Endurance requires a wet wash between products. FDA approved facilities require a high standard of cleanliness in order to minimize contamination. We take it a step further by requiring the machines, blenders to be cleaned with water.
c) We source ingredients only from manufacturers who DO NOT supply pro-hormones. This eliminates the risk of cross-contamination at the supplier level.
-Due to our level of concern, you can feel safer taking our product then your cereal.
In addition, only FDA approved facilities require Certificate's of Analysis. These C of A's, are audited and reviewed by the FDA during their facility audits. A C of A assures that each of those ingredients have been tested for identity and only those ingredients are used in the product. First Endurance is the only supplement company which offers a C of A.
