The purpose of this chapter is to give you some background information about some other supplements that may have a use in bodybuilding. In some cases, I may express my opinion, but mostly I will just give you facts and let you decide whether the products are worth trying. All the products in the previous chapter are extremely useful for certain bodybuilders or lifestyles, none of the products listed in this chapter are that crucial for anyone. Some however, may have a role, but are by no way nearly as useful as the ten in Chapter 8.
Like I discussed in Chapter 7, despite being 'naturally occurring' products, some are controversially referred to as 'supplements', due to fact that they have drug-like actions. Some are banned in certain sports, and are illegal in some countries. They may then cease to be a 'supplement'.
The world of nutrition is constantly being researched, and improvements are always being discovered. Due to lack of good evidence for many supplements, I mostly have to rely on what users have said, either through www.muscletalk.co.uk, through literature or from the network of athletes and bodybuilders I know personally.
