Welcome to the MusclePharm Sports Science Center & Research Institute. We are the only Sports Nutrition Company with our own 40,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art athletic and testing space that is IRB complant. MusclePharm recruited the industry's brightest doctors and nutritionists for our team. So of course we had to give these professionals the tools they needed. Keeping our products on the edge of performance while maintaining the highest standards of safety is what sets our company - a company of athletes - apart.
Whether it's medical or diagnostic, MusclePharm puts the best equipment that technology can design into our team's hands. In Our Center, you will find:
When touring the workout area of the MusclePharm Sports Science Center & Research Institute, visitors tell us this place feels like an Olympic training center or the workout room of a pro sports team. Whether its Woodway®, Hammer Strength®, Keiser® or the innovative Omega Wave Machine, our lineup of performance equipment is 100% professional grade, the best of the best.
These machines don't just kill your muscles and make you sweat. They are essential in helping our team of doctors evaluate every MusclePharm product and the athletels performance. For instance, we can use Olympic-quality machines like the high-speed treadmill that goes up to 25MPH to measure an athletels aerobic capacity, the VO2 max, and pushing them to exhaustion. The data received helps the doctors fine-tune our supplements and the custom tailor the athletels performance regimen.
The most talented MDs and PHDs in the world of sports medicine deserve a full line-up of diagnostic and research equipment at their disposal. Think of our multi-disciplinary facility as a sports lab with the ability to perform phase I-IV clinical trials. Every product improvement we make is backed up by science, and this is where that happens. Applied science turns athletes into superior athletes, and often times breaking science.
In our clinic we can perform bone scans, blood work, ultrasound to determine body composition, muscle and fat evaluations, a range of kidney and liver tests, cortisol tests, measure choice reaction time and much more. Everything we learn helps our team improve our products. Again: no other supplement maker is backing their products with extensive clinical testing like this.
MP Sports Science Center & Research Institute is home to some of the biggest names in professional sports, as it is the ideal place for an elite athlete looking for the most advanced training center in the world.
Elite Athletes know how to push their bodies to exhaustion, but the possibility of overworking or not recovering properly leading to overtraining is always there. Our team monitors every element of our athletesl training, always looking help them train smarter and safer—get more out of every element of their routine. We are the only Sports Nutrition Company with the medical capacity to non-invasively evaluate an athlete's overall physical situation.
MusclePharm is about raising the bar in the supplements industry. This couldn't happen without recruiting the most accomplished doctors and scientists we could find. Our team trained at some of the leading colleges in the world, then went on to hold senior-level positions in the U.S. Surgeon General's Office, The Food and Drug Administration, Fortune 500 pharmaceutical companies, and University research departments. One created and wrote The Anabolic Diet, the dietary program that strength and power athletes swear by. Another has worked with athletes from over 75 collegiate and professional teams. No other Sports Nutrition Company invests in their talent like MusclePharm. No one. When it comes to fine-tuning and perfecting our products, this team never quits.
MusclePharm invested heavily in our Center so we could better learn about design and protocol development, along with IRB approval and trial execution. We wanted scientific publications to review our findings and consult with other medical professionals. Our focus:
Our Center and team of doctors have played key roles in clinical trials for both dietary and nutraceutical studies. We helped determined safety/efficacy and consulted on product substantiation/function claims. In the field of Sports Nutrition, the MusclePharm Center has the capability to accommodate any project. We can prepare documentation for review as well. Our team is fully trained in Good Clinical Practice (GCP)/International Conference of Harmonisation (ICH) guidelines. We also have experience with large and small projects, from proof-of-concept through Phase IV trials. If needed, we can consult with our colleagues and involve outside researchers as needed.
The findings on this site are from research that we conducted at The MusclePharm Sports Science Center & Research Institute or through a University. Every phase of these projects were carried out by our team to meet science's highest standards. Often, our findings were discussed with other sports nutrition professionals before they were published in scientific journals by industry peers. The term “peer reviewed” indicates that a paper has thoroughly reviewed by editors and the journals' scientists to verify that the results were both objective and accurate. They do this prior to publication and write abstracts that give the reader a summary of the study's overall methods, results and conclusions. If further information is needed, they can add annotations that explain the practical applications of a study's findings.
From the base of the mountains in Denver, Colorado, the MusclePharm Sports Science Center & Research Institute conducts research to learn everything possible about sports nutrition and exercise science. Our driving goal is to help athletes push themselves harder than they ever thought possible, and our facility is our testing lab to help achieve this.
MusclePharm scientists analyze how exercise, our environment and nutrition affect the human body. The board that oversees our team is comprised of industry-leading professionals as well as a former United States Assistant Surgeon General and top FDA medical counsel. Our research facility is their central headquarters.
