Are you the one of bodybuilders? Do you take bodybuilding supplements for increasing energy and building lean tissue mass? Have your use of supplements ever increased over time? Have you switch some of your regular meals for supplements as meal replacements? If all of your answers are certain, you must be attention to the following news.

In recent years, the appearance- and performance-enhancing products such as protein powders, creatine, L-carnitine and bars have become almost ubiquitous supplements in the pantries of young males across the world. They can seemingly be purchased in any grocery stores, vitamin shops and online. However, a study was presented that the situation of overuse supplements are increasing and dangerous.

In the study, the researchers surveyed a total of nearly 200 men aged 18-65 years old who had used legal appearance- or performance-enhancing products over the past 30 days to fill an online survey about their bodybuilding supplements use and complete other subjects relating to body type and masculinity. The results reported that 29% of participants concern about using them. 8% of them admitted their doctors had recommended them to reduce the amount or stop using them. 3% of them had kidney or liver problems due to the supplement use. The researchers showed that the overuse of the bodybuilding supplements was a signal of eating disorder.

Although the study focused mainly on workout supplements, the researchers said they believe that fish oil, multivitamins and other health-related supplements could have the same effect as bodybuilding supplements.
