The BSCG and founder, Dr. Don Catlin, are known as the leader and gold standard in dietary supplement certification, and work with manufacturers, ingredient suppliers, and individual teams and athletes. They test dietary supplements and ingredients to ensure quality and possibility of contamination with drugs that could lead to positive drug tests or health concerns.

Being certified free of banned substances and also drug free is a very important step in making ForeverGreen a premium company in the industry. This will significantly increase our target market as it opens up the world of sports and athletes who are exceptionally careful about products they put on or in their bodies and require this type of certification before use," commented General Manager, Craig Smith.
