Suggested CDR learning codes: 1000, 3100, 4000, 4060, 6000; Level 2
Visit any gym or athletic training facility, and you will see distinct evidence of the popularity of supplements and performance enhancers. While these items are widely used, their manufacture and quality control isn’t widely regulated. As a result, athletes who utilize supplements and performance enhancers without close supervision are putting themselves at risk for harm and banned substance violations. This session will explore current hot topics in the supplement industry and discuss the dangers of various multivitamins, recovery products, stimulants, and energy drinks. Attendees will learn strategies for counseling clients who may be inclined to utilize these items as well as what RDs can do to help keep their athletes and active clients safe.
