Natural way is best: Such supplements are not studied enough by researchers because these supplements are not FDA-approved drugs for treating particular disorders. Nobody knows for sure what happens if a person takes performance-enhancing supplements. So, it is best for all athletes to train and build their bodies the natural way, with healthy nutritious foods, avoiding sports supplements or body-building supplements.
