What are supplements? Many people have different idea as to what the word “supplement” stands for.” A supplement is something added to complete a thing or enhance it”. First of all , they are not steroids, or illegal in any way which I’ve heard some people call it, which is complete nonsense. Supplements are to benefit people who workout and train. For those who go to the gym, or run, or do any physical activity. They come in many forms such as powder form called whey or mass, or in tablet form which is for fat burning purposes.

Are supplements good or bad

Nutritional Supplements

Nutritional supplements include vitamins, minerals, herbs, meal supplements, sports nutrition products, natural food supplements, and other related products used to boost the nutritional content of the diet. They are used for many purposes. They can be added to the diet to boost overall health and energy. To provide immune system support and reduce the risks of illness and age-related conditions. To improve performance in athletic and mental activities and to support the healing process during illness and disease. However, most of these products are treated as food and not regulated as drugs are.

What Are There Uses?

They can be useful in so many ways, almost all gym goers have taken a protein based supplement such as whey which is excellent. It is used for building muscle and used by millions of gym users across the world. They are mainly taken before and after a workout to help repair the muscles worked during exercise. Nearly 50g of protein can be found in a single shake with nearly 115 calories. Supplements can be used by either people looking to lose weight or gain it. It is a huge market and at the moment is booming in sales all over. I myself have bought into this “fitness world” and I was not disappointed. Protein shakes are brilliant and are a great natural way of building muscle and for taking before and after training instead of having a meal.

Are these Supplements for Everyone?

Well, of course you can’t say that everyone should take supplements. They should only be taken for people who are going to train and exercise regularly. If not used properly and while not working out they can do serious damage to your liver. Hence, why they are advertised for gym use and aimed at everyone who works out. But for anyone who exercises, not even gym users, for runners or athletes for example. Plenty of runners when finished a race will have a protein shake. It’s low in fat and high in protein and rebuilds their muscles after a long run. This suits their needs. It’s only recently that runners have bought into this as they’ve come to the realisation that it benefits them hugely.

Rob Kearney is the face of ‘Optimum Nutrition’, one of the biggest selling protein stores. Rugby players especially would take these supplements to maintain their size whilst training and playing. Many people may criticise these supplements, those people are mostly the ones who don’t train or have never taken them before. You will never hear a person in the gym criticise supplements. That’s because they know how they work and how they benefit you’ in your efforts to get to where you want whilst training.

In conclusion, no, supplements are not for everyone, but they are very beneficial for anyone training in any sport. They are most beneficial for gym users looking to gain strength or mass. But they are also beneficial for adding into your diet as they help lose/gain weight and burn fat also. It’s up to you at the end of the day and it is always a matter of opinion. Try it for yourself and see what you think, you’ll be surprised.
