The Athlete's Guide to Sports Supplements
Textbook, Exam


The Athlete’s Guide to Sports Supplements separates fact from fiction, providing quick answers to the most common questions, and delivers accurate information to the fitness professional. For many professionals, supplementation can be a confusing and serious matter with a countless number of new, renamed, and varied sport supplements on the market.

The Athlete’s Guide to Sports Supplements course provides concise descriptions for 120 of today’s most popular supplements. For each entry, you’ll discover what it is, how it works, potential performance benefits, research studies and outcomes, dosage recommendations, and possible health concerns. You’ll also find recommendations for master’s athletes, those competing in extreme environments, and those with special dietary needs, such as food allergies, diabetes, and vegetarian.

Each supplement is listed alphabetically, providing quick and easy navigation throughout the course. Alternatively, use the supplement finder to locate supplements for a particular purpose, such as recovery, endurance, and strength.
