Do supplements enhance performance, or are they just a cash cow for your hard-earned dosh?

The supplement market is worth billions and continues to grow. Remember that time when whey protein was frowned upon? Well now you can find it infused into your favourite Mars Bar when filling up for petrol. You can find anything on the supplement market if you look hard enough, but should you be using everything out there? MF highlights the evidence-based supplements – scientifically proven to actually do what they claim – and how they can support your fitness goals.

If the foundations of your diet are not good, you are better off focusing on how to improve that. You may be bored of hearing it, but getting a variety of fruit and vegetables into your diet is often overlooked for your health and performance. Unfortunately, nutrition basics aren’t sexy, but they are effective. However, if you do have a good foundation to your diet, these supplements may be of use.
