Should Workout Supplements Be Banned in High School?
High school gyms are littered with varisty athletes looking to get stronger, most of which are turning to exercise supplements that make promises to increase energy during “high-intense” workouts, and, ultimately build muscle.
However, there is absolutely no scientific proof that taking supplements will give you the “edge” over those not taking supplements, and the dangers of products like Creatine have been well documented.
Do you personally know someone that takes exercise supplements? Should high school athletes be banned from taking them?

Not at all! People just need to read the instructions and take them in moderation.

Whoever writes these articles really needs to hand over the reins. Most highschool athletes turn to taking excessive supplements? Really? No. That is simply not true. A few, maybe. But most? Also, the dangers of Creatine have been well documented? Not really. In fact, that sentence offers what should be a link that should elaborate on the point. What does the link take you to? A supplement store, selling (among other supplements, Creatine!
Yes, while many supplements do not work well, many do. If you are having a problem due to taking supplements, you are probably taking to many. Read the label! Supplements are like medicine. Yeah, don’t just rely on medicine. Gets a good night’s rest and all that, too. And don’t take too much medicine, hoping it will cure you of your cold faster.
It’s common sense, people!

Yes they should be banned. Scientific evidence shows that the only benefit is the placebo effect. They do not work. The reason kids have dropped dead in the middle of the sports is because of using excessive amounts of pre-workouts stimulants. There is a reason they do not have FDA approval, they do not do what they promise.
