An Introduction to Supplements for Female Runners
At Runners Health Hub we advocate FOOD FIRST, however there are times when a supplement is required for ergogenic performance or for optimal nutrition, many of which we have discussed in our podcast She Runs Eats Performs.
Nutritional supplements can support an individual when they contain appropriate (and safe) levels of nutrients in a therapeutic dose and bio-effective form.
Disclaimer: Warning. Supplements should be taken under the guidance of a doctor or nutritional therapist, taking different supplements together could result in too-high doses of common ingredients, and anyone taking prescription medication should inform their GP/Doctor before taking supplements of any kind.
Is it safe to take supplements whilst I’m on medication?
