What does ‘clinically tested’ mean? We explain the term that features on so many packages – and how you get it.
The most effective supplements are those clinically proven to boost your physique and performance.
Many products claim to sport such benefits, but under the microscope, very few stand up to the true test of science. CarnoSyn® beta-alanine is scientifically proven to aid athletic endeavors.
What exactly does ‘clinically tested’ on your supplement label mean?
The sports supplement industry has grown tremendously since the beginning of the 21st century, and by 2021 will be worth an estimated $60 billion according to Forbes magazine.
What all this means is that the sheer number of available products has proliferated hugely, and so deciding what is worth purchasing can be quite difficult.
You should only splash your hard-earned cash on an effective supplement that has been clinically tested. This term refers to something which has simply undergone scientific study.
Clinical studies are usually human studies trialed to test a claim, hypothesis or efficacy of treatment.
If supplement manufacturers wish to make a claim that a product will boost endurance, improve strength or build muscle, then this will need to be verified in a clinical trial.
What doesn’t the label tell you?
Despite the official-sounding nature of the label, clinical proof does not tell the whole story. ‘Clinically proven’ doesn’t tell you how reliable a study is, for instance.
Simply slapping a ‘clinically proven’ sticker on a supplement doesn’t mean much unless the quality and body of research is made clear.
Where a supplement or product claims clinical efficacy, this requires further investigation as to what exactly the science says. Not all scientific studies are created equal, or at least conducted adequately.
What makes a good trial?
The most reliable scientific evidence is that which has undergone numerous studies and randomized, double blinded controlled trials – in which the supplement in question is pitted against a placebo.
Neither testing personnel, nor subjects would know which one is placebo until the end of the study.
Prior to releasing the research to the public, a study should undergo peer review by professionals in the same field, with excellent knowledge and reputation.
A majority of studies are rejected during this process, so a peer-reviewed publication is inherently the most reliable – even if the findings are inconclusive.
To gain an even clearer understanding, researchers often perform a meta-analysis. This is achieved by pooling the results from all studies on a particular topic, and then analyzing the data to determine whether an overall judgement can be made.
Why CarnoSyn® fits the bill
CarnoSyn® beta-alanine has been proven to work in over 55 separate scientific studies. No corners have been cut and no rash judgements have been made.
Claims that CarnoSyn® beta-alanine can aid muscular endurance, cardiovascular capacity, and general sports performance are substantiated by the fact that CarnoSyn® has undergone rigorous clinical trials.
