Risk of Death or Serious Injury

Performance enhancing substances of all types can cause death or serious injury. This includes dietary supplements, food supplements, nutritional supplements, steroids, hormones, diuretics, blood, herbs or other botanicals, vitamins, and other substances and drugs used to improve athletic performance. Because of the severe risk of death, serious injury and other adverse side effects, you should always obtain medical advice from a qualified healthcare practitioner with the ability to take into account the individual circumstances of your case before you take performance enhancing substances. The Content does not constitute medical advice, and is not a substitute for the advice of a qualified health care provider.

Aegis does not endorse or recommend any particular performance enhancing substance.

Risk of Violating Substance Policies

The Content should be used in the same manner as any other educational medium. It may not be used to replace any anti-doping or other substance abuse guidelines or policy (all such policies are referred to as "substance policies") issued by your league, association, conference, institution, employer, or other substance policy administrator such as the World Anti-Doping Agency, or WADA. Accessing the Content and acting on the product information on the Web site does not constitute compliance with substance policies. Where the Content shows that a product is on WADA’s Prohibited List, this means one or more of the Prohibited At All Times List, the Prohibited In Competition List, and the Prohibited In Particular Sports List.

We provide a status for each product in relation to the substance policy or policies we understand to be relevant to you. If other policies apply to you, please contact Aegis immediately to have your details updated. You are responsible for confirming the stated policy is the correct one for you. Products identified (or not identified) on this site should not be taken in any form without obtaining the approval of your league, association, conference, institution, employer, or other substance policy administrator, and without first obtaining the advice of a qualified health care professional.

A program's substance policies and list of prohibited substances may change at any date. Aegis does not undertake to refresh the Content, including status data, in response to each change to a prohibited list.

Aegis is not engaged in deciding what substances should be taken by you, or should be subject to substance policies. It is solely your responsibility to comply with your sport’s rules and regulations.

Declared Ingredients

If product information on the site is stated to be based on “declared ingredients,” that means that the ingredients are those furnished by the manufacturer or a third party aggregator of such information, and Aegis has not tested the product nor independently verified the ingredients. Aegis is not responsible for the accuracy or completeness of declared ingredients and it is possible that the declared ingredients may not be a full and accurate list of ingredients to be found in that product. If there is an ingredient that is not listed on the label, it could trigger a positive doping test result even if the product is identified as “OKAY” on the site. A manufacturer may also change ingredients from time to time or from batch to batch, with or without public notice. Aegis does not undertake to refresh the Content, including status data, in response to each ingredient or batch change.
