Workout Supplements That May Support Your Performance

If you want to get the most out of every repetition and every sprint at the gym, you may have considered taking workout supplements. In a Portuguese study published in February 2020 in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, about 44 percent of the 459 gymgoers surveyed said they used dietary supplements. Most of the participants were young men who exercised frequently.

Supplements are many and varied. The study listed protein powders, sports bars, and creatine, among others.

Some workout supplements may be aimed at benefiting people with specific goals — like running a marathon or boosting muscle mass — or those dealing with joint pain, says Nicole Avena, PhD, an assistant professor of neuroscience at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City and a visiting professor of health psychology at Princeton University in New Jersey.

According to the National Institutes of Health’s Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS), supplements are designed to improve performance, reduce the risk of injury, and enhance recovery.
