Nutritional Supplements: Boosting Your Performance

Take your training and performance to the next level
Kevin Barrow

All the speed and conditioning in the world will not compensate for the wrong diet – an athletes performance depends on correct, balanced and adequate nutrition. The right nutritional supplements can help take your training and performance to the next level.

Nutritional Supplements: Boosting Your Performance covers the key areas of interest and debate, from essential fats (good for metabolism) to probiotics (promising for boosting immunity); from iron (deficiency more prevalent than you might think) to antioxidants (potentially damaging in more-than-modest doses); from conjugated linoleic acid (good for boosting lean muscle mass) to chromium (essential for insulin function).
