Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Although dietary protein supplementation is commonly used by both athletes and people engaged in recreational sports, the data supporting its wide use are still limited. Some evidence supports the use of creatine and possibly HMB as ergogenic aids in specific situations [8], however this is also based on limited data. The use of supplements for the healthy, non-competitive adult engaged in recreational sports is usually not warranted.
