Olympus Lyfestyle, formally known as Olympus Labs, will be launching their rebranded line with the BSCB Certification.
The Banned Substance Control Group will certified that the Olympus Lyfestyle products being released featuring the BSCG seal will be drug-free. The Banned Substance Control Groups is known as the "gold standard" in sports nutrition. According to the BSCG:
Our gold standard testing menu includes more than 491 banned substances in sport, prescription, over-the-counter, or illicit drugs. It covers drugs on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List or banned in other drug testing programs like the NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA, WNBA, PGA, LPGA, MLS, ATP, WTA, CFL, FIFA, FINA, AFL, NRL, NASCAR, CrossFit, NCAA, military, law enforcement, first responder, vocational drug-testing programs, and more. BSCG Certified Drug Free® supplements for athletes have been trusted for more than 15 years. When it comes supplement protection for consumers, we are proud to be the first and only supplement certification program to include testing for additional prescription, over-the-counter, and illicit drugs not banned in sport.

Fitness Informant's POV
I just did a podcast for the 2 Guys 1 Shaker Cup on the importance of 3rd party certifications like BSCG. I think they are important for consumers to keep the brands honest. It is even more important for drug tested athletes to look for this seal of approval. I give a lot of credit to OL to add this to their products.
If you think of OL of the past, you wouldn't have seen this seal. Now? The brand tells me they are in it for longevity. Kudos to the brand for doing this and being a pioneer in the movement towards integrity.
