Dietary supplementation is common in the United States, with more than 50% of adults reporting regular use. Athletes frequently take dietary supplements in an effort to enhance performance, increase endurance, control body weight, or promote muscle development. For clinicians working with this segment of the population, identifying reliable information on the topic can be challenging, making it difficult to provide patients and clients with evidence-based guidance. Nutritional Supplements in Sports and Exercise, edited by Michael Greenwood, Douglas Kalman, and Jose Antonio, is a comprehensive resource that provides a reliable review of this important topic area.
