Expansion of line adds vitamin D to play important role in proper functioning of the body for athletes
PITTSBURGH, Pa., August 6, 2013 – Klean Athlete® is expanding its NSF Certified for Sport® product offering with the addition of KLEAN-D™, a vitamin D supplement designed to aid in muscle recovery and help support immunity and musculoskeletal strength in athletes.†
“It is estimated that 1 billion people are vitamin D deficient or insufficient,” says Dr. Andrew Halpner, Ph.D., Vice President of Product Development and Technical Services at Douglas Laboratories® and head of Klean Athlete® R&D. “KLEAN-D™ is an essential addition to Klean Athlete® that may help counteract vitamin D deficiency in active athletes who want to reach peak performance through optimal health.”
Like the rest of the Klean Athlete® line of products, KLEAN-D™ recently underwent a meticulous testing and verification process to receive the esteemed NSF Certified for Sport® certification, which ensures that it is free of banned substances. Recognized by major sports organizations including the NFL, MLB, NHL and PGA, the NSF Certified for Sport® program was developed in response to the concerns of athletes, coaches, team owners and others about finding banned substances in sports nutrition products.
Douglas Laboratories® maintains outstanding quality control from start-to-finish for Klean Athlete® ingredients and products. They are one of the few supplement providers who control manufacturing, packaging and distribution, thus ensuring that the highest quality product reaches every athlete.
