What Are Sports Supplements?

Sports supplements are powders, drinks, capsules used to build muscle, lose weight or improve endurance.

There are many sports supplements available. Common ones include:

Creatine

Creatine (pronounced: KREE-eh-teen) is a substance made in the body. It is involved in making energy for muscle contractions.

Man-made creatine is sold as a powder or pill and in energy bars and drink mixes. Studies show that it can help athletes who do sports that have short bursts of intense exercise with short recovery times (such as sprinting and powerlifting).

Amino Acid Supplements

Amino acids, the building blocks of proteins, help build muscle. Amino acids used as supplements include glutathione, cysteine, arginine, leucine, glutamine, and citrulline. They're usually sold as a pill or powder but can be included in liquid supplements too.

Protein Supplements

Most protein supplements are made of the proteins casein and whey. The supplements usually come as powders that can be mixed with water, milk, milk substitute, or other liquid.

Caffeine

There is some evidence that caffeine can boost sports performance. Caffeine is in many products, including soda, energy drinks, energy chews, and capsules.
