Abstract Performance is the combination of favorable genetics, proper training, and a sound approach to nutrition. Athletes attempting to gain a competitive edge often try artificial means of improving speed, strength, and endurance. Although some use oral or injectable medications, others turn to nutritional supplements. This article focuses on some of the most common methods athletes use to enhance performance. Reported dosages, representative studies, and potential side effects are reviewed, along with guidelines for evaluating supplements, and the claims of their manufacturers.
