Reality

We have to educate both parents and student-athletes on what these products are all about.

  • Supplements are often masked with the term “Proprietary Blend.” It gives companies a way to put just about whatever they want in a product without revealing the actual ingredients
  • None of them are regulated by the Food & Drug Administration
  • The body can only handle so much protein & carbohydrates at one time. Any extra past the bodies limits are pushed out.
  • The “Placebo Effect.” You think what you’re taking works but it’s the belief in your mind that’s actually causing the supplements to work. You’re paying money to think these work.
