Are you supplements savvy? Ask yourself before buying any supplement:
If you consider the supplement is safe and legal then it's important to find an accredited sports dietitian and get their advice about what’s right for you. It’s much better to spend $150 or so on a personal consultation than it is to spend that money randomly guessing what’s right for you based on product packaging or a friends advice. Luckily, Sports Dietitians Australia can help. Go to https://www.sportsdietitians.com.au/#find-sports-dietitian to find a Sports Dietitian near you.
