ASADA Athlete Warning - Higenamine
A warning has been issued to athletes about the prohibited substance Higenamine, following a flood of positive tests stemming from popular dietary supplements.

In just over a year, 13 Australian athletes from nine different sports have tested positive to Higenamine, which is prohibited both in and out of competition. This is in spite of a warning issued by ASADA in November 2016. Higenamine is often listed on the ingredient label of the supplements, however this is not always the case. As such, ASADA is reiterating its warning around the risk of supplements, as well as ways to help reduce that risk.

A blog has been published specifically about Higenamine, which includes the names of supplements known to cause positives, and have made several posts on our Facebook and Twitter accounts.
