Twinlab Corporation, the trusted name in sports nutrition innovation for more than four decades, today announced the launch of CleanSeries, the first line of sports supplements to be able to claim the following:
- Independently certified by the NSF® International product certification program to verify products meet nutrient label claims
- Certified Gluten Free by NSF®
- Non-GMO tested by an independent third-party lab using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing for genetically modified DNA to a limit of 0.9%
- Batch tested by HFL for banned substances in accordance with HFL’s Informed Choice and Informed Sport programs
The CleanSeries™ line met with enthusiastic response when introduced at the Natural Products Expo in March, garnering a nomination for the prestigious NEXTy, an award given to key influencers in natural products who are deemed to be instrumental in bringing innovation and strong leadership to the industry. CleanSeries is designed for competitive athletes and fitness enthusiasts alike seeking optimal nutritional support.
“CleanSeries demonstrates that you can deliver both high performance and high nutritional standards in the same sports nutrition line,” says Marc Stover, Director of Marketing for Twinlab. “So whether you are training for a triathlon, hitting the elliptical to shed a few pounds, or just trying sports nutrition products for the first time, you can trust CleanSeries to help you perform better and to recover faster.”

Twinlab CleanSeries has engaged Joel Harper, celebrity fitness guru and Dr. Oz’s personal trainer, as its official spokesperson.
“My clients are constantly asking me for advice about nutrition and supplements,” says Harper, “They ask, ‘Do I need supplements if I eat healthy already?’ My answer is always ‘YES,’ because it is tough to consistently eat a well-balanced diet and you want to make sure you get enough protein and nutrition every single day. But until I was introduced to Twinlab’s CleanSeries products, I never had a great answer to the inevitable follow-up question: ‘What supplement do you recommend?’ Now I do. With CleanSeries, athletes at any skill level – from elite-level training for competition, to the mom or dad working hard on the treadmill – can all truly improve their performance and see results faster with this amazing product line.”
In April, industry insiders and consumers will be able to vote for their favorite NEXTy nominees. New Hope editors will then announce a small number of Editors’ Choice winners.
