What does it mean to be NSF?
Narrator: What does it mean to be NSF Certified?
Description: As the narrator speaks, text and simple black and gold line animations emphasize his words. The text of his question appears onscreen, with the NSF logo filling in for the words. The NSF logo then scales down to fit onto a bottle.
Narrator: First, to achieve NSF certification, the National Sanitation Foundation must thoroughly inspect and rigorously review a supplement company's manufacturing facility, standard operating procedures, and quality control documentation.
Description: The logo on the bottle disappears as a conveyor belt appears, propelling it, and more bottles, off to the left side of the screen. The camera then shifts to the top of the three bottles, which become simple circles on the screen. These circles are marked with a checkmark as the narrator mentions each aspect of the company’s business that is reviewed for certification.
Narrator: Next, so a nutritional supplement can bear the "NSF Certified for Sport®" logo, every batch of product the manufacturer makes must be tested by NSF – not by the manufacturer, but by NSF! – to ensure there is zero presence of more than 200 substances banned by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and the World Anti-Doping Agency.
Description: The outer circles animate away as the center circle shifts into the NSF logo. Text appears above the logo, emphasizing the narrator’s words without adding new information. The words are replaced with simple pill icons, representing the many banned substances NSF tests for in the products. In the final moments, the conveyor belt is shown again, processing Thorne bottles that have the NSF certified for sport mark on them. The video ends with the Thorne logo on black.
Narrator: Thorne is an NSF Certified manufacturing facility, and we currently have the most extensive line of NSF Certified for Sport® nutritional supplement products on the market.
