CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., April 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- MYOS RENS Technology Inc. ("MYOS" or "the Company") (NASDAQ: MYOS), a biotherapeutics and bionutrition company and the owner of Fortetropin®, a proprietary bioactive composition derived from fertilized egg yolk that helps build lean muscle in conjunction with resistance training, announced today that it has received the prestigious Certified for Sport® certification from NSF International for its new sports nutrition product line, "Yolked™".
Yolked™ is a novel advanced nutrition product based on Fortetropin® that will be marketed specifically to competitive athletes.
Joseph Mannello, Chief Executive Officer of MYOS RENS Technology, Inc., stated, "Competitive athletes work harder than ever before in building lean muscle mass to gain greater strength, stamina and flexibility. We developed and formulated Yolked™ specifically to meet the needs of these athletes. Our goal for Yolked™ products is to have a major presence in locker rooms and training facilities of collegiate and professional sports teams."
"Athletic programs demand third party certification to protect their athletes and the NSF's "Certified for Sport®" certification is the gold standard. In late 2017, MYOS entered into a strategic partnership with IMG College, a division of IMG, to market its products to collegiate athletic programs and their fans. IMG College has a large national footprint across collegiate athletics that can open the way for MYOS to reach not only the athletic departments, but also the faculty and alumni. Importantly, achieving the Certified for Sport® certification for Yolked™ will enable MYOS to aggressively execute upon our strategic program with IMG," continued Mr. Mannello.
"Achieving NSF's Certified for Sport® certification demonstrates MYOS RENS Technology's commitment to quality, safety and clean sport," said Brian Jordan, CSCS, RSCC *D, Technical Manager of NSF International's Certified for Sport® program. "Consumers can choose Certified for Sport® products with confidence, knowing that those products have been tested for harmful levels of contaminants like lead and arsenic as well as more than 272 athletic banned substances."
The NSF Certified for Sport® Program helps athletes, coaches and trainers make more educated decisions when choosing sports supplements. The program is recognized by the NFL, NFL Players Association, MLB, MLB Players Association, PGA, LPGA and Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sports.
The Certified for Sport® certification mark on packaging helps athletes of all levels choose supplements with confidence. Certified for Sport® supplements must meet rigorous standards that include comprehensive lab testing and extensive evaluation of the manufacturing process to ensure contaminated substances or hidden ingredients are not added to a product.
