There are various reasons why athletes may be interested in bodybuilding supplements.
Concern about getting adequate nutrients from our food supply
Suspicion of pharmaceuticals
Belief that diet alone will not achieve optimal nutrition
The concerning matter with regards to bodybuilding supplements is that anything classified as a dietary supplement is not required to meet any FDA or other standards! Think about that... there are no regulations in place that guarantee the safety or purity of something sold as a supplement.
They are also not made to meet the similar safety requirements as prescription drugs or any other manufacturing standards. They are not required to meet product potency or purity ratings and are not required to prove the effectiveness of any health claim that is made.
