Ok, I admit my guilty secret - I do buy M&F magazine most months. To be honest, the UK edition at least, usually has some good stuff from coaches and exercise scientists at major sporting clubs, and I find their advice quite interesting given it is their jobs to work with highly paid athletes. Anyway, this month’s edition contained a supplements A-Z (that old giveaway chestnut) and they rated each from 2 to 5 stars. The following were 5 star:
Beetroot juice concentrate
Green tea extract
Vit B complex
A host of others didn’t fare so well. For example, d-aspartic acid, chocamine, fenugreek, ALA, HICA, MCTs, saw palmetto. The worst rated were chitosan, chlorophyll, glycocyamine, ribose and pyruvate.
Interesting, at least for supplement geeks like me.
