    The Athlete’s Guide to Sports Supplements book

    • Study guide

    • Continuing education exam

    The Sports Supplements continuing education course helps you separate fact from fiction, provides quick answers to the most common questions about sport supplements, and delivers information you need for evaluating supplements that may fit your athletes’ specific muscular, cardiovascular, and psychological needs.

    For each of the 120 supplements presented in the text The Athlete’s Guide to Sports Supplements, you’ll discover what it is, how it works, potential performance benefits, research studies and outcomes, dosage recommendations, and possible health concerns. You’ll also find recommendations for masters’ athletes, those competing in extreme environments, and those with special dietary needs such as vegetarians and athletes with food allergies and diabetes.

    Best of all, each supplement is listed alphabetically, providing quick and easy navigation throughout the book. Alternatively, use the supplement finder to locate supplements for a particular purpose, such as recovery, endurance, and strength. And for ease of searching, many of the supplements are thoroughly cross-referenced by scientific and popular names. By mastering the content of the Sports Supplements course, you will be able to provide your athletes with a safe, effective edge to their training and performance.

    The study guide contains a course syllabus, chapter activities, and end-of-chapter learning activities to prepare you for the 50-question continuing education exam at the conclusion of the course.
