Improved performance is a combination of conditioning, proper sleep, hydration, mental strength, playing well, and nutrition. Some players think nutritional supplements are necessary to improve performance, however, supplements are only necessary if an athlete is not eating a proper nutritious diet.
What are dietary supplements?
Dietary supplements, taken to enhance performance, come in many forms: tablets, capsules, liquids, powders, gummies, and bars. Some of the most common ingredients in supplements are amino acids, protein, creatine, and caffeine. According to one estimate, retail sales of “sports nutrition supplements” were $16.6 billion for 2019.
Some dietary supplements can help an athlete get adequate amounts of essential nutrients if he or she is not eating a healthy variety of foods. But it is important to understand that supplements cannot take the place of food in a healthy diet.
