Group C

Evidence level:

Use within Supplement Programs:
Not advocated for use by athletes within Supplement Programs May be permitted for use by identified athletes where there is specific approval from, or reporting to, a Sports Supplement Panel.

The list in this group is identified as “examples” to note and may not be complete.


Specific Group C supplements are identified which had previously been classified as Group B. Based on the most recent research, support for their use is less compelling.
