Eating the right foods, in the right amounts, at the right times, will impact performance and the effectiveness of training. Good nutrition is part of the overall healthy lifestyle encouraged for all candidates. However, there is no need for supplements or any type of commercial products that claim to enhance performance. While such products may be legal and are widely available, there is no conclusive clinical evidence that they will improve performance.
Excessive consumption of supplements is financially costly and potentially unsafe. Furthermore, supplements are not regulated by the FDA and there are no product manufacturing standards. Commercial products may contain banned substances that would cause you to fail a drug test.
