National Athletic Trainers’ Association Position Statement: Evaluation of Dietary Supplements for Performance Nutrition

National Athletic Trainers’ Association Position Statement:  Evaluation of Dietary Supplements for Performance Nutrition

Buell JL, Franks R, Ransone J, Powers ME, Laquale KM, Carlson-Phillips A. J Athl Train. 2013 Jan-Feb;48(1):124-36. doi: 10.4085/1062-6050-48.1.16.

The National Athletic Trainers' Association has released a position statement “to help athletic trainers promote a ‘‘food-first’’ philosophy to support health and performance, understand federal and sport governing body rules and regulations regarding dietary supplements and banned substances, and become familiar with reliable resources for evaluating the safety, purity, and efficacy of dietary supplements.” The position statement represents a thorough document that outlines the recommendations and then describes background related to the food-first philosophy and dietary supplement regulations. Each background section is ended with a “practical application” paragraph.
