Dietary Sports Supplements sold over the counter may contain NCAA banned substances. Please be aware of the following information concerning supplementation:
Most supplemental aids lack scientific proof. Most supplements have not been tested adequately for efficacy, purity, or safety. Be careful of misleading product information. “Natural” does not mean safe. “More” is seldom better. Nothing replaces well-balanced diet that includes a variety of high quality foods. Athletes use supplements at their own risk.
