    Tired of seeing Supplements slammed in Mainstream Media (&UknowY)


    The effect of dietary supplements on the quality of life of retired professional football players.

    Abstract

    Professional football players may experience negative health consequences when they retire such as chronic pain, cognitive problems as well as other consequences of sports-related injuries. The purpose of this pilot study is to determine the effects of dietary supplementation with multiple nutrients on the quality of life of retired football players. Fifteen retired players received daily supplementation of fish oil with cholecalciferol, antioxidants, natural vitamins and minerals, polysaccharides and phytosterol-amino acid complex for 6 months. Using an open-labeled repeated measures design, volunteers completed self-report assessment measures at baseline, 1, 3 and 6 months. Outcome measures were CDC HRQOL-4, WHOQOL-BREF, POMS, MFQ and pain self-assessment. General health rating improvement on CDC HRQOL-4 from month 1 was sustained to month 6 (p<0.0001). Mental health days improved at 6 months (p<0.05). WHOQOL-BREF showed increased health satisfaction at all measurement points (p<0.05) and the Physical and Psychological Domain Scores at 6 months (p<0.05). MFQ General Rating of Memory improved at 3 and 6 months (p<0.05). Vigor scale in POMS was significant at 3 months (p<0.05). Decreased pain was noted only for the elbow at month 1 and the knee at month 3 (p<0.05). No adverse events were reported. Results of this study offer preliminary insight into using dietary supplements to support and optimize quality of life in retired football players. Further research using a placebo-controlled design is needed to characterize the potential benefit to physical and psychological well-being of multiple dietary supplementations for this cohort.

    The real issue is company to company attacks. If we don't unite as an industry and stop attacking eachother, why would the media praise us?

    We make it easy for the media to dislike us...

    I think the supplement industry would gain more acceptance as a legitimate industry if they stopped making outrageous claims and backed up their claims with some real science. Their marketing campaigns are right out of Marvel Comics. Not all, but most.

    Agreed, it makes it hard for quality companies like PES, USP, AEN etc. when alot of companies are just looking for a quick buck. They know they will DC a product when it flops and bring out an overhyped tub of placebo with crazy claims based on a single study using lab rats in Korea swimming or something. They don't even try the product themselves let alone run a test/beta. But sadly the average consumer wants to change their physique in 7 days with little to no work at all and supports the hype so people keep doing it. Biggest Example is Dr. OZ!

    PA chimed in on this in another thread in his forum. he said the biggest supplement enemy is the arrogance of the country. the politicians dont have the money to target big pharma, so they attack the little guys that make them look good. which is the supplement companies, especially the hormonal based ones.


    senator Durbin anyone?
