ABSTRACT
Recent studies suggest consumption of all classifications of dietary supplements, including sports supplements has increased (Dodge, Ford & Perko, 2003; Yu, Ghandour & Haung, 2000; Metzl, Small & Levine, 2001). Several factors make adolescents particularly vulnerable to possible dangers inherent to consumption of dietary supplements. In this paper, factors associated with adolescent consumption of dietary and sports supplements will be examined. Furthermore, the authors will discuss the need to establish a system to track adolescent consumption rates and to synthesize safety and efficacy data.
