Nutritional Ergogenic Aids provides an up-to-date review of what is hypothetical and what is known about the most extensively used nutritional ergogenic aids; dietary supplements to enhance physical and athletic performance. Among the 23 aids discussed are branched-chain amino acids, carnitine, creatine, glucosamine, chrondroitin sulfate, taurine, biocarbonates, and ginseng. Research conducted primarily with data available from human studies is analyzed and discussed. The book presents information and guidelines on safe use and provides a scientific basis regarding the benefits, shortcomings, and usefulness of nutritional ergogenic aids.

Industry Reviews

Written by an expert in the field, each chapter brings the latest scientific evidence to its evaluation of these nutritional substances as potential ergogenic aids . This new book should be required reading for those in the sports nutrition arena. Summing Up: Highly recommended." - CHOICE, March 2005 "[I] highly recommend this book for all of our practitioner shelves. It is both up-to-date and well written. It is not often that a text comes along that should be universally recommended for those interested in and living the life in sports nutrition - this is it!" - Douglas S.
