Do the GPS products follow the University Interscholastic League (UIL) guidelines for athletes?Last Updated: August 15, 2019
The UIL has rules on anabolic steroid use and testing. In the ‘Athletic Code for Coaches,’ it states coaches are to avoid the encouragement of performance enhancing drugs. Neither anabolic steroids nor performance enhancing drugs are found in any of the GPS products. Our GPS line is made under the strict quality guidelines of the Food and Drug Administration’s current good manufacturing practices (GMPs). GMPs have been established to ensure the safety of dietary supplements. The GPS products are manufactured in NSF registered facilities (Bio Nutraceuticals, Inc., Nutribiotech USA, and ProTec Laboratory). All of our products are formulated to not contain any banned substances. PURE has been selling the GPS products for several years and the company has had no known issues for competitive athletes and drug testing. While not mentioned by the UIL, the NCAA also has its own guidelines on “performance enhancing” products. On their list includes caffeine. Of course, they are not telling their athletes they cannot not consume caffeinated beverages, but high amounts of caffeine can be performance enhancing. The amount needed for this effect would be upwards to 300 to 400 mg of caffeine in a single sitting use. Keep in mind GPS Energize contains 110 mg of caffeine per serving.
