As a triathlete, I could improve the most in the swim. It is the area that affects my times the worst. I am interested in learning more about… the long-term effects of supplements on the body. I am not a huge advocate of supplements other than multivitamins and protein. There are thousands of products with very misleading information and I fear the negative affects they could have on the body. As a general rule I rarely recommend supplements to clients and athletes. At the end of the day nothing can beat a clean diet and regular exercise.
