Sports and Supplements

Sports nutrition supplements include a variety of drinks, powders and pills. Designed to improve athletic performance and/or fill gaps in the diet of people who play sports or workout on a regular basis. The information in this article is limited to sports drinks, protein powders and other performance-enhancing supplements.

Many supplements have extensive research behind them to prove their benefit. But an even greater number do not have enough evidence to support their use. Your doctor or dietitian can help you understand which supplements are helpful for you.

Unlike medication, supplements are not intended to treat, diagnose, prevent or cure diseases.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not have the ability to check the safety and effectiveness of supplements before they hit the market. To make sure you choose safe products, buy only products that are certified as safe by a third party company. Like National Safety Foundation or Informed Choice. These groups have strict certification guidelines to prevent tampering. Verify label claims against the contents, and make sure they don’t contain banned substances.
