ISSN serves as resource for sports nutrition information

The National Collegiate Athletic Association  has revised the guidelines of the mandatory collegiate athlete drug-testing program. Many in sports nutrition and in the academic research world utilize the expertise of The International Society of Sports Nutrition and its National Library of Medicine Indexed scientific journal, the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition as a resource for staying up-to-date with respect to the latest regarding sports nutrition science.

The National Collegiate Athletic Association has  released new and updated guidelines for all those involved with collegiate sports. The NCAA has revised the guidelines of the mandatory collegiate athlete drug-testing program to stipulate that all university athletic programs have a point person for any and all questions as related to the NCAA banned substances list. The importance of this is that many athletes utilize dietary supplements and products that in the past (prior to the FDA mandated GMP enforcement) left some athletes at potential risk for failing a test.

Division I schools must identify a specific person to serve as an educated resource on the issue, and educate all staffers on the topic. Failure to follow the policy would result in an institutional violation. 

Many in sports nutrition and in the academic research world utilize the expertise of The International Society of Sports Nutrition (http://www.theissn.org) and its National Library of Medicine Indexed scientific journal, the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition (http://www.jissn.com) as a resource for staying up-to-date with respect to the latest regarding sports nutrition science.

The ISSN offers itself to any and all Universities or the Media that may have any questions on how to choose a designated university expert, what the NCAA guidelines are with respect to nutritional products and how to tell a responsible nutrition manufacturer from a potential fly-by-night operation.
