Avoiding Shady Supplements
It should be little surprise that manufacturers and marketers of nutrition supplements would "bend the truth" to make their products seem more effective. It may surprise you though, that many common supplements are tainted with pharmaceutical drugs and other medicinal agents not listed on the label.
Why does Dr. X's Muscle Mass 500 protein powder work so well? Because it is tainted with steroids . . . and no government committee or organization exists to assure that it does not contain anything but protein powder. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) regulates food, meaning that they do check your Cherrios to make sure the label is accurate, but they do not regulate supplements. To quote a recent article from USA TODAY:
[We] scrutinized about 100 companies that have been caught selling supplements secretly spiked with drugs and potentially dangerous chemicals since 2007. The examination found that at least 14 were run by people with criminal records beyond traffic infractions.
I realize that as amateur endurance athletes (aka "age groupers") we do not undergo testing, so we do not need to worry about a positive test. But, we are also the group who competes to improve overall health, look better, feel better, live longer, have fun and maybe take home a medal once in a while; therefore, we should be the group who is very cautious about what goes into their bodies.
If the food label reads "Nutrition Facts", it is a food product and therefore regulated by the FDA. If it reads "Supplement Facts", it is a supplement NOT regulated and therefore may contain other ingredients or different amounts of ingredients from those listed on the label. I highly recommend products certified by a third party, such as Informed Choice or NSF Certified for Sport - not to avoid a positive test (which would be a concern for professional athletes) but to make sure that your supplementation protocol compliments your active, healthy lifestyle.
Please note, though, that third party labeling only ensures the label accurately reflects what the package contains, but does not necessarily guarantee a quality, effective product. As the WITH Performance dietitian, I am happy to answer questions about specific products or set up a consultations to discuss your entire supplemental regimen.

| I have been with Shawn for three years before WITH. With Shawn's support and expertise, I went from a couch potato to a 63 year old woman who ran her first marathon! WITH Performance continues to support and motivate me to be the best I can be.|
In 2013 I was given the opportunity to work with Shawn Burke as he coached me for my first Ironman Triathlon. Shawn completely prepared me for this major event but due to unforeseen circumstances with my nutrition, I did not cross the finish line. When he explained that WITH Performance would be in place in time to train again for Ironman 2014 I could not have been more excited! Training at WITH has been an amazing experience and I have so far logged over 500 bike miles in pre-season. The equipment is state of the art and is helping me to work in the areas that I am weak as well as pushing me harder than ever before. The coaches are very knowledgeable, encouraging, and are helping me to be the athlete I need to be for my goals. I am so impressed with my results, I have signed up my 16 year old son. I highly recommend WITH Performance for any person, of any age and ability because WITH cares about the overall health of our community!
I've never been real athletic or lived somewhere that had such an athletic driven community, until now and I love it. I've only lived here a year and half but it didn't take long for me to get the triathlon bug in me. I just finished my first Olympic distance one over the summer. I want to be an ironman some day too. I never thought I could really do it until I joined WITH. I've learned so much in a short time being there, it's truly amazing. I'm gaining muscle, endurance, knowledge, technique, and confidence!!!! I'm blown away. Everyone there is friendly, encouraging, knowledgable, and always willing to help. For the first time, I feel like I'm where I belong and that I'm progressing. WITH was love at first sight :-)
Get "WITH" it!! It's exactly what you do during training sessions. As an individual who has never had a personal trainer or taken the time to do a structured workout, I was reluctant to join WITH. I have just completed my 8th session and I can truly say I have been missing out and wish "WITH" was around last year. I find myself doing workouts, movements and stretches that I would never do at the gym, let alone think about. It's truly a great environment and fun experience during every workout.
