Performance Supplements – Optimize Your Results
Why Are They Important
The National Institute of Health (NIH) provides health professionals with a fact sheet for dietary supplements. Many supplements are used to enhance exercise and athletic performance and come in several different forms; tablets, capsules, liquids, powders, and bars. Products may contain a single ingredient and others may have several ingredients in a variety of combinations and amounts. Many common ingredients are amino acids, protein, vitamins, creatine, and caffeine.
In the United States, a larger portion of athletes take dietary supplements than the general population. And professional athletes, body builders and others who compete on a national or international level use dietary supplements more than non-competitors.
In order to perform at his or her best, ensuring adequate nutrition and hydration is critical to success. Many experts recommend implementing eating plans tailored for athletic requirements and for health and wellness in general. The American College of Sports Medicine recommends athletes obtain an adequate amount of daily calories, fluids, carbohydrates (to maintain blood glucose levels and replace muscle glycogen; typically 1.4 to 4.5 g/lb body weight [3 to 10 g/kg body weight]), protein (0.55 to 0.9 g/lb body weight [1.2 to 2.0 g/kg body weight]), fat (20% to 35% of total calories), and vitamins and minerals.
Dietary supplements may enhance performance when they add to this dietary foundation rather than replace requirements. Athletes engaging in endurance activities lasting more than an hour or those that perform in extreme environments such as hot temperatures or high altitudes, might need additional fluids, electrolytes and carbohydrates for energy. Even with the best nutritional preparation, results of taking any dietary supplement(s) for exercise and athletic performance can vary depending on the level of training; the nature, intensity, and duration of the activity or the environmental conditions.
Many sellers and manufacturers of dietary supplements for exercise and athletic performance rarely fund or conduct scientific research on their proprietary products of a caliber that reputable biomedical journals require for publication. Our products are sourced from FDA monitored compounding pharmacies. Our oral supplements are obtained from Thorne Research that are backed by scientific research where many products are NSF certified.
