Nutritional Supplements

Answered By Mick Grant & John Molvar

Question

My son is a 12 year old male middle distance athlete that is not a big fan of fruits and veggies and as a result I fear he may not be getting the nutrition his body needs for proper recovery. Are recovery supplements such as Ultragen First Endurance a viable option? I know another parent/coach of a 12 year old boy that swears by it.

Answer

I am not a fan of supplements. A well balanced diet is the only way to go. Consult with your son's doctor for dietary advice.
