Ryan Garcia’s Supplements Test Positive For Ostarine

The legal team for Ryan Garcia says two supplements submitted to VADA have tested positive for Ostarine, suggesting contamination. 

Garcia tested positive for Ostarine following urine samples taken on April 19 and April 20 after his win against Devin Haney. Garcia’s B sample also tested positive. Strict liability places the burden on a fighter to prove his innocence. Haney’s attorney has asked the New York State Athletic Commission to disqualify Garcia to give Haney the victory.  

Garcia’s team says two supplements were tested: NutraBio’s raspberry-lemonade-flavored “Super Carb” and BodyHealth’s “Perfect Amino” powder. The results from the Sports Medicine Research & Testing Laboratory (SMRTL) showed Ostarine. One supplement reportedly had “70-2200 picograms [of ostarine] per gram powder.” The other had “approximately 660-830 picograms per gram powder.” 

Victor Conte alleges Garcia’s supplements were opened before testing. Conte claimed this could not be conclusive evidence since a sealed supplement was needed. He further alleged that NutraBio and BodyHealth are ‘totally certified’ supplements. 

“To gain a no-fault ruling or a ruling of contamination, [testing authorities] are not going to accept open containers. The New York Commission won’t accept these results from a container that’s been opened. You’ve got to be joking. This sounds awfully fishy. This is some’’[rubbish]. The procedure is to test a sealed product, and several of them,” Conte stated 

Garcia has now responded
