The Founder and CEO of MusclePharm is an ex-NFL athlete; the President is an international fitness icon and model featured in the pages of Flex, Muscle & Fitness, Men's Fitness and many more; and the Chief Medical Director is one of the leading sports nutrition doctors in the country, having worked with thousands of professional and collegiate athletes from around the world. We don't just make and market our products, but we also use them religiously and live the lifestyle of our customers and our athletes. When we envision a new product, we think not only how it will work best for you, but how it will affect our own bodies and our own lives as well.
After a new product is envisioned, it then moves onto the scientific formulation stage - a combined scientific effort of some of the most respected medical doctors and researchers in the world. MusclePharm's Chief Medical Director and Formulator is one of the leading sports nutrition doctors in the country and is highly sought after by elite professional athletes from around the world, including players from the NFL, NHL, MLB and more. His in-depth expertise comes from years of practicing medicine as well as a record-breaking powerlifter. As an athlete and physician, he understands the complicated relationship between training, supplementation, nutrition, injury rehabilitation and performance enhancement. But he doesn't work alone. Our team also consists of some of the top former researchers from GlaxoSmithKline, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Pfizer, The National Institute of Health (NIH), The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER), the United States Food and Drug Administration, as well as the Assistant United States Surgeon General. This diverse team of some of the brightest and most experienced minds in science and nutrition is responsible for creating MusclePharm's scientifically advanced - often breakthrough - combinations and ratios of ingredients.
After the formulation stage, each ingredient ratio and combination is carefully examined to ensure it is sound, from both a nutritional and health perspective. MusclePharm has teamed up with the top research specialists in the country to conduct comprehensive clinical trials to ensure that all of our product claims aren't based solely on published data about individual ingredients, but more importantly from the final products themselves.
This research program further explores the effects of MusclePharm products on athletes' physical performance, including during high-intensity interval training, on aerobic and anaerobic power, repeated sprint ability, body composition, training volume and strength levels.
The greatest scientists alive can create impressive products (we've personally seen them do it), but if they've never lifted a weight, spent hours running suicides on the court or knew what complete muscle failure feels like, the real-world application of those products would have no meaning. At MusclePharm, we have made a commitment to make science and sport equal parts of the equation. Our doctors and researchers formulate the products, and our professional athletes and trainers give them real-world feedback that is used to perfect them. By carefully studying and analyzing how the products affect our athletes in real-world workouts, we are able to create formulations that would never be achieved through science alone.
At the world-renowned MP Sports Science Center, our state-of-the-art 35,000 square-foot training and performance facility in Colorado, preliminary formulations of new products are tested on elite professional athletes from around the world. Product samples developed at the MP Sports Science Center are also given to athletes and strength coaches in the NFL, MMA, MLB, and other organizations for further analysis and feedback.
MusclePharm is the first sports nutrition company to use the field as its lab, truly combining science with athletics. Our MP Sports Science Center is the only professional facility in the world to use the Omega Wave, DEXA, and Keiser performance equipment to gather cutting-edge feedback about our formulations. As an athlete, you want to know exactly how products and exercise are affecting your body. Science can tell you one thing, based on threshold and performance tests, but these machines are the only ones in the world that let us actually see how your body breaks down nutrients, where you stress levels are, exactly how the products effect your recovery and where you adaption levels are. This allows us to produce better products and more powerful athletes.
All MusclePharm products are cross-referenced with internationally published lists to ensure that no banned substances are included in the formulation process. All production runs are conducted in a state-of-the-art facility that follows government-approved Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP). Before being made available to the public, all products are analytically verified for purity and verified for label claim accuracy to ensure that the information we put on the label is 100% accurate. Following testing, reference samples are kept and maintained so that we can hold our products to the highest quality assurance standards at any time
All of our products are manufactured in a FDA Registered Laboratory. Quality processing and research makes our products far superior to the competition. We're not satisfied unless you are. We abide by our Guarantee to ensure you are 100% satisfied with your formula. We are proud of the quality of our products and guarantee their potency, superiority and safety.
The laboratories that manufacture our products are certified by the National Nutritional Food Association's (NNFA) Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Program. It is your assurance that you are receiving the purest ingredients in the proper concentrations.
This is a third-party certification program which includes inspections of manufacturing facilities to determine whether NNFA specified performance standards are being met. These standards include specifications for staff training, cleanliness, equipment maintenance, record keeping and receiving of raw materials.
We consult with outside scientific professionals because they help us scrutinize everything from the source of our raw materials, to the details of our manufacturing process - all the way through to the production and final product packaging. This thorough clinical testing minimizes the risk that a product contains a substance banned by one of the major sports organizations and ensures that certified products contain the identity and quantity of dietary ingredients declared on the product label, but do not contain unacceptable quantities of unwanted contaminants for the recommended serving size. In addition, all MusclePharm products are tested to ensure that no ingredients metabolize into prohibited substances that may result in disqualification from competition.
