BodyHealth's PerfectAmino 300-ct tablets, now NSF Certified for Sport by NSF International

"As a 43-time full Ironman Triathlete and 8-time Kona world championship qualifier, I understand the importance of clean product, as well as optimal protein synthesis." - Dr. David I. Minkoff MD

BodyHealth PerfectAmino® has just earned certification from NSF International's Certified for Sport® program. NSF International is a worldwide public health organization that tests and certifies products in order to help protect professional athletes (and consumers) from taking products with potentially harmful ingredients and sport-specific banned substances in their supplements.

PerfectAmino consists of the 8 Essential Amino Acids that the body needs for optimal protein synthesis. With this specific ratio, the body can build and repair protein efficiently and without waste, meaning it builds muscle mass, speeds recovery, avoid muscle loss, strengthens bones and tissue, promotes the growth of skin, nails and hair and more and is made from pre-digested, vegan sourced, non-GMO, pharmaceutical grade, L-form amino acids. Studies show they enter the blood stream within 23 minutes, providing the body what it needs very quickly. In contrast, protein-rich foods including meat, eggs and whey have the same amino acids, but take longer to break-down and have too many of some and not enough of others, resulting in as much as 82% going to waste, burned as energy, stored as fat or turned into carbohydrates and sugar. PerfectAmino is 99% utilized with almost zero waste.

Being Certified for Sport, PerfectAmino is now regularly tested for over 270 sport-specific banned substances and is tested to ensure it meets label claims. It is required that it be produced in a facility that is also inspected twice a year to comply with the U.S. FDA’s Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) requirements, industry best practices and is certified by NSF. Additionally, BodyHealth routinely reviews and tests PerfectAmino for many things such as: Toxicology, Contaminant testing (pesticides, lead and arsenic), Label Claims and Amino Acid Assays to confirm the ratios of amino acids are consistent.

“I started taking PerfectAmino many years ago when I had a hamstring injury that wouldn’t heal, no matter what I tried, so this product has personal meaning to me. I recommend it to my patients, many of which are elite athletes as well as patients with severe autoimmune diseases, so I am very happy that our commitment to quality has paid off with recognition by NSF International” said David I. Minkoff MD, BodyHealth’s founder and 43-time full Ironman Triathlon competitor. Dr. Minkoff is also the founder and Medical Director for one of the largest alternative medical clinics in the world.

NSF International's Certified for Sport program was designed to help elite athletes and consumers alike make informed decisions about taking supplements. Professional sports leagues such as MLB, NFL, NHL, CFL, PGA, LPGA and many others trust supplements that are NSF Certified and in many cases only recommend certified products for their athletes.

With this certification, PerfectAmino can now be found on the list of certified products on the NSF website by clicking this LINK as well as on the Certified for Sport® mobile app which includes a special barcode scanner.

"BodyHealth products have always been produced at the highest standards but now, with NSF Certification, athletes and consumers can now choose PerfectAmino with extreme confidence. PerfectAmino bottles of 300-ct tablets are now certified by the industry leader in product certification" said Chris Alexander, CEO and GM of BodyHealth. "NSF is really great about conducting rigorous tests in order to certify for sport, giving further evidence of the good work put forth by our team.”
