Contributing USMA Research Unit(s)
American College of Sports Medicine Annual Conference
Contrary to popular opinion, the results of this survey indicated that social and print media played the least important role in dictating dietary supplement purchasing decisions among female service academy cadets. An abundance of literature exists regarding the efficacy, or lack thereof, regarding the role of dietary supplements on both physical performance and aesthetics. The results of this investigation indicate that the participants are taking the time to conduct independent investigations into individual dietary supplements rather than being influenced by the media, social or otherwise.
