A new sports nutrition product line made out of fertilized egg yolk by Myos Rens Technology, Inc., received Certified for Sport certification from global testing firm NSF International.

The line, aptly named Yolked, features Myos Rens’ proprietary ingredient Fortetropin, which has been studied for its muscle health benefits​.

A study published in 2016​ on Foretropin in both rats and humans suggests that the ingredient increases lean body mass (LBM) and decreases markers of protein breakdown.

The line’s target demographic are competitive athletes, according to CEO of Myos Rens Technology Joseph Mannello. It is slated to launch this year.

"Competitive athletes work harder than ever before in building lean muscle mass to gain greater strength, stamina and flexibility. We developed and formulated Yolked specifically to meet the needs of these athletes,”​ he said.

“Our goal for Yolked products is to have a major presence in locker rooms and training facilities of collegiate and professional sports teams."

With the Certified for Sport certification mark on packaging, athletes will be able to identify that a supplement has met rigorous standards that include comprehensive lab testing and extensive evaluation of the manufacturing process to ensure contaminated substances or hidden ingredients are not added to a product.

"Achieving NSF's Certified for Sport certification demonstrates Myos Rens Technology's commitment to quality, safety and clean sport," ​said Brian Jordan, CSCS, RSCC D, technical manager of NSF International's Certified for Sport program. "Consumers can choose Certified for Sport products with confidence, knowing that those products have been tested for harmful levels of contaminants like lead and arsenic as well as more than 272 athletic banned substances."
