Should Teens Take Sports Supplements?

Jul 12, 2008
Athlete's have used a variety of sports supplements for years to enhance their performance. Everything from testosterone boosters to legal steroids to controlled substances have been used to boost performance. Often times teens will mimic the actions of older and more experienced athlete's, but what about when sports supplements are involved. Is it really a good idea for teens to take these sports supplements? What effects positive and negative can teens have from the use of off the shelf sports supplements.

During puberty many things can upset the delicate hormonal balance of a teen and can have serious long lasting effects on their growth and development. Taking sports supplements is one way to throw the body's hormones out of balance, even in fully developed adults. If you're serious about keeping your teen athlete safe make sure you learn everything possible about the legal steroids and sports supplements on the market today.

There are many sites on the internet that can teach you about teen health. Many of these sites will cover the role of vitamins and supplements on a teen. More importantly they can learn how to deal with peer pressure and how to respond when their friends and teammates pressure them to try the latest performance enhancing supplement. It's really great information for both parents and teens.

Make sure to do as much research as possible to keep you teens safe when it comes to sports supplements that are on the market today. Many times we don't have adequate research on the supplements or even disclosure about their ingredients. Supplements come and go seemingly almost monthly as lawmakers strive to keep up with the new designer legal steroids. Parents have a duty to learn as much as they can about the legal anabolics available.

Teen years are difficult no matter what and can be even more difficult for the teen who idolizes the sports stars they see on TV and in magazines. In an effort to be like these idols our teens can sometimes make poor decisions and do things they will later regret. Many sports oriented teens feel that sports supplements are the ticket to make them bigger, stronger and faster without the necessary work and discipline required.
Little do they know the harm they can cause their body's not just next week or next month, but possibly for life.

Take advantage of the information available on the internet to learn all you can about performance enhancing sports supplements and take the time to educate your teen as well.
