What to look for in Pre-Workout and Post Workout Supplements

pre workout and post workout

What should I be looking for when buying at Pre-Workout and Post-Workout Supplements?

You should be concerned about the safety, quality, and efficacy of all nutrition supplements. Consumer Reports and other periodicals have reported toxic levels of heavy metals in many highly popular supplements and various other problems. You should be concerned about the supplements you use.

One thing you can do is to only purchase brands labeled NSF International, U.S. Pharmacopeia, or ConsumerLab Seals. These insignia verify that the supplement contains the ingredients stated on the label and does not contain contaminants, potentially harmful ingredients, or banned substances not listed on the label. Unfortunately, many supplements produced outside the U.S.A. may not be regulated and may contain potentially toxic substances.

These cautions are even more critical if you are a competitive athlete. Many athletes have failed doping tests, as a result of a supplement containing Nandrolone (an anabolic steroid) or other banned substances, without being printed on the label, that the supplement contained prohibited substances!
