Choosing A Supplement
In choosing dietary supplements, ask the following questions:
- Is it safe and legal?
- Do the product’s claims make sense?
- Do studies exist on the actual finished product (not the individual ingredients), and were those studies conducted in endurance athletes?
- Was the amount of the supplement in the study the same as the recommended amount on the label?
- Is it right for you (do you need something for general nutrition or endurance or recovery or nothing at all)?
