Abstract

SUMMARY

ENDURANCE ATHLETES EXPEND REMARKABLE AMOUNTS OF ENERGY AND CHALLENGE THE RECOVERY PROCESSES OF THEIR BODIES. SCORES OF NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS ARE MARKETED FOR THEIR ABILITY TO IMPROVE ONE OR BOTH OF THESE PROCESSES. A LIMITED NUMBER OF THESE SUPPLEMENTS HAVE AN APPRECIABLE AMOUNT OF RESEARCH TO SUPPORT THEIR USE BY ENDURANCE ATHLETES. CARBOHYDRATE-ELECTROLYTE SOLUTIONS, CAFFEINE, AND ADDING PROTEIN TO CARBOHYDRATE SUPPLEMENTATION OR MEALS ARE 3 STRATEGIES THAT ARE SCIENTIFICALLY BACKED AND SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AS A TRAINING AID FOR THOSE ENDURANCE ATHLETES WHO COMPETE AND TRAIN ON A REGULAR BASIS.
