I intentionally left this wide open to interpretation. We all know about things that have been taken off of the market, specifically stimulants and methylated forms of various steroids and cutting agents, but should the FDA make it a regular practice to regulate all consumer supplements? What are your thoughts?
Also, based on your certifications, what is your professional position on recommending supplements? If you’re a club owner, do you sell supplements in your facility?
Tough question. How much government regulation is appropriate and necessary?
I believe that educated individuals should be able to make their own choice. However, knowing what is actually in the supplement that you are taking is most important. That is why I recommend that any supplement that you take is qualified by the USP (United States Pharmacopia) as actually containing the quantity of substance(s) indicated on the label.
