Each student must select one performance enhancing or weight-loss nutritional supplement, from the list provided, and give a class PowerPoint presentation on this chosen supplement.
You must choose an ergogenic or weight loss supplement and build a scientific presentation around it. Specifically, you will discuss some background information (i.e. target population, popularity, costs, how long has it been on the market, etc.), active ingredients, marketing claims, documented biological mechanism(s) of action, scientific support or refute of supplement, documented side effects, and your overall advice on the supplement. While many of these supplements may have multiple actions, including health and psychosocial benefits, your presentation must focus on the effect(s) of athletic performance and/or weight loss. Do not spend much time on your supplement’s health improvements in diabetes, blood cholesterol, etc.
