Many athletes take dietary supplements in hopes of enhancing performance, and indeed, there are several evidence-based performance supplements that are considered safe, effective and legal. There is also evidence that some of these supplements may have health-related benefits apart from performance enhancement. This session will inform attendees of these dual-purpose supplements with discussion about the mechanisms of action, clinical applications, drug and nutrient interactions, and safe and effective dosing.
