Why did the NCAA ban glycergrow?

because its a hyperhydrating agent, and would give unfair endurance because of increased hydration. pretty sure about that but maybe someone else can clarify.

how would they test for it?

I have never seen that on the 2009/2010 NCAA banned substances list... so i think ur missinformed unless they have just held some kind of press conference i dont know about...

no it is banned and I'm pretty sure it is because it has a diuretic effect. I have asked this question before...

See, I don't think it really hydrates the way people even think it does. When I first read about it, people said that it took extra water from between the muscle cells, and put it in the blood stream. So in the long run, it kind of would be a diuretic.

It's my understanding that GMS is still banned under the NCAA.

Glycergrow itself is not actually banned by the NCAA directly. NCAA rules as well as the IOC ban all diuretics because of their popularity of being used as urinary masking agents to hide doping agents like anabolic steroids.

it was directly banned. at the time of its inception, the GMS in it was on the banned list. to the best of my knowledge, that is no longer the case and isnt stated on the label anymore

The reason for glycegrow ban is that WADA has put glycerol on the banned substance list. The reason is not the performance enhancing effect but rather that it can be misused as a masking agent for other doping substances.

the ncaa is a bunch of idiots. there's little rationale for their decisions. in fact, it's not even a "they" - it's one woman who determines what can and cannot be given to college athletes. she's the most uninformed person I know. Probably received Cs and Ds in school and somehow got to be in the decision-making body of the NCAA thanks to the Peter Principle.

Can anyone really test for glycerol? Ive determined that I wont take this stuff anytime soon, but Im curious.

it's not about whether it can be tested. it's about whether schools can supply their athletes with it.

haha. the ncaa is ruled by money, lobbying and politics, just like the government. PowerAde gives the ncaa millions - actually I believe powerade is coca-cola or maybe pepsi, i forget.
no you can't get in trouble for taking it. like someone mentioned u cannot test for it. but you don't want to advertise that you're taking it either to your coaches because they can be funny sometimes.
