FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Why did MusclePharm decide to invest in its own research facility?
A: At MusclePharm, we are committed to the quality of our products. The MusclePharm Sports Science Institute is a demonstration of that commitment by investing in a state-of-the-art athletic and testing space with our own doctors, nutritionists, and researchers committed to offering only the best supplements on the market while maintaining the highest standards of safety. This level of transparency is rarely seen in the nutritional supplement industry, and it’s important to MusclePharm to set the standard when it comes to safe, trustworthy, and high quality products – that’s why we’ve made such a huge investment in MPSSI.
Q: Why did MusclePharm decide to launch the www.mpssi.com website now?
A: MPSSI is not a new concept for our company. We have been working on this commitment to excellence by using science and transparency for years. It is what has made our products better through quality control and use of science. MPSSI uses the 6 Stage Research Protocol, which uses a combination of quality control measures to ensure that we offer our consumers only quality and beneficial products. We decided that launching a website will help consumers become better educated about our products and the science behind them and it gives us an easily digestible platform that provides more transparency on our testing and third party verifications. This is a game changer in the industry.
Q: Why does MusclePharm use third party verification tests?
A: We are always identifying new ways to provide enhanced quality and more information to our customers. We realized that one very transparent way of achieving this goal is to provide on MPSSI.com a list of all of the final lot third party verification testing completed for anyone to view.
Q: What does a “lot” mean?
A: A lot is a unit measure of the entire product made at the same time. Currently MPSSI has tested over 2,000 final lots which equals approximately 25 million products. Check out, the final lot testing for protein quality here and the banned substance testing here.

A: We are not aware of any other similar company in the industry that has the level of science, research, and testing that we require of our products.
