Health Supplements in Sports Nutrition

Currently, the main types of sports nutrition-related products in China include sports nutrition foods, sports beverages, health supplements, and other general foods. Mainstream sports nutrition products are primarily focused on muscle building, weight loss, improving endurance, and enhancing athletic performance, with health supplements not particularly emphasizing their advantages in these areas. In fact, health supplements can provide more functional ingredients that ordinary foods cannot match, and they should play a more proactive role in the field of sports nutrition. The introduction of the “Technical Evaluation Implementation Rules for New Functions of Health Supplements” this year represents a significant systemic reform in the evaluation and management of health supplement claims. In the field of sports nutrition, there is room for more innovation and imagination, such as maintaining joint health and cardiovascular function. (Source: shuzhengkangxun)
