When you take supplements or vitamins in sport or to get ready for military training, there are two basic things to consider. 1) Are they safe? 2) Do they work?
On the first point, most would agree that no short term gains using unsafe products are worth long term health risks. Additionally, a soldier can risk more than his or her own health if you have a negative reaction to a supplement that you’re taking. You can risk the mission, and the safety of your unit.
On the second point, that answer can be a little more difficult. Lifestyle, nutrition, your baseline health, and your unique body makeup can affect how much benefit you’re going to get from supplements and vitamins in sport.
