Then, IMO, you condone doping as long as it is not on a list. Why bother with the clinic then?RobbieCanuck said:Regarding Actovegin it is a protein-free extract obtained from filtered calf blood and has an insulin-like effect of increased glucose utilization. It also increases oxygen uptake and the utilization of oxygen.
WADA does not ban Actovegin itself or any substances that have an "insulin-like effect of glucose utilization." Generally speaking anything that one takes into the body has an effect on glucose so they cannot ban it that way.
So it seems to me until they specifically name it as a banned substance it is still OK.
