'Zero tolerance to banned sports supplements'

After 18 members of 7 PARA RHA reportedly tested positive for a banned substance, believed to have come from a supplement, the Army's head of personnel strategy says that soldiers who fail their compulsory drugs test will be kicked out of the Forces.

Brigadier John Donnelly said personnel should eat a healthy diet rather than rely on sports supplements to boost their workouts.

BritishForcesNews says that, to check if your sports supplement has been approved for use, visit the Informed-Sport website at www.informed-sport.com. Advice should also be available through your PTIs.
