EVALUATING SUPPLEMENTS FOR ATHLETES
The supplement world is a multi-billion dollar industry that most athletes typically know little about. They see magazines, websites and TV telling them what to do without knowing the ramifications and consequences of taking supplements that might harm them, might not be pure and that could test them positive on a drug test. As a sports dietitian, it is our job to evaluate why they want to take a supplement, should the athlete take it, is it safe and is it legal. This webinar will discuss just that and help you be able to educate athletes on proper supplement knowledge and consumption.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • Identify a handful of the most popular supplements on the market.


  • Recommend appropriate dosage and usage of some safe supplements.


  • Know where to look to identify safe supplements.


  • Understand the differences between sport rules including professional versus collegiate.


  • Recognize what foods some supplements naturally come in.
