Issue Date: 2-Nov-2010
Abstract: This document addresses protein supplementation for athletes. It covers some of the potential side effects. It also addresses the issue of if and when protein supplementation is helpful, and what benefits a person could expect from using protein supplements. Specifically, protein supplements may be most helpful for people who exercise at a moderate to extreme intensity on consecutive days. Compared to people who don't take protein supplementation, people who use protein supplements during consecutive days of moderate to extreme exercise may have less fatigue, maintain more muscle strength throughout their exercise, and continue their exercise for longer periods of time before exhaustion. They also have less muscle breakdown products in their blood.
