This ASAP Podcast, our 165th episode, is with Aegis Shield Scientific Director Dr Bob Murray. Dr Murray previously served as director of the Gatorade Sports Science Institute (GSSI) where he oversaw university-based research in exercise science and sports nutrition. An author of numerous publications in scientific texts and journals, Dr Murray is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine and served on the ACSM Board of Trustees.
Dr Murray and the ASAP Sports Science Team convened last week in Chicago, Illinois where we were brought up to speed on the cutting edge technology app known as the Aegis Shield. Aegis Sheild® helps keep athletes clean and in the game by providing an extensive, up-to-date database of products and supplements. Just scan a product's barcode and get complete information on the ingredients of the product. and if those ingredients are in compliance with the different organizations' protocols.
Sports organizations such as collegiate athletics, NFL, MLB, and NASCAR have their own Banned Substance Lists (BSLs) that apply to athletes in those sports leagues. Aegis Shield has 7 BSLs so consumers can choose the most appropriate list...and then make appropriate decisions on whether, or not, to use the product.
Aegis Shield is a website and mobile app designed to evaluate the ingredient lists on dietary supplements to help athletes at all levels of competition avoid banned substances. Aegis Shield is also an easy-to-use, reliable and trusted tool for sports health professionals such as athletic trainers, strength coaches, dietitians, and sports physicians who athletes trust implicitly to provide reliable information about dietary supplements and banned substances. For amateur or younger athletes who may not have frequent access to sports health professionals, Aegis Shield is also a valuable service for coaches, parents and others who are involved in helping athletes train and prepare for competition.
