Special Issue "Nutrient Intervention in Competitive Athletes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 5 December 2021.
The past 30 years have seen unbelievable growth in the dietary supplement industry. Since the 1990s, dietary supplement sales have increased by more than 80% to nearly $16 billion dollars annually. Growth is not slowing down, and the market for dietary supplements continues to expand. For many, the rationale for using dietary supplements is for the purpose of enhancing muscle growth, improving strength, increasing endurance capacity, or enhancing recovery. This ever-changing market requires continuous oversight that informs athletes, coaches, sport nutritionists, and sport scientists on cutting-edge information about the efficacy, safety, and legality of various dietary supplements. Please consider submitting your latest research examining dietary supplements in competitive athletes. Review papers providing unique perspectives from sport scientists with extensive work in this area are also encouraged. Considering that 2021 is an Olympic year, focus on emerging dietary supplements and their ergogenic effects will provide an important scientific contribution to the sport science community.
