Dirty Dozen: High Risk Sport Supplement Ingredients
Dietary supplements pose a substantial risk to an athlete’s health and eligibility to compete. This webinar will discuss popular dietary ingredients that appear in sports supplements and put athletes at risk. There are thousands of dietary ingredients that may be used in sports supplements, including synthetic compounds that are derived to replace ingredients that have been recalled or banned by the FDA or in sport. This program will help educate sports practitioners on the status and mechanism of action of current dietary ingredients that put their athletes at risk.
At the end of this presentation, attendees will be better able to:
- Identify dietary ingredients that pose a threat to drug tested athletes.
- Explain how high risk dietary ingredients are being used in sports supplements.
- Analyze sports supplements for high risk dietary ingredients.
