With such a huge array of supplements to choose from and all of the manufacturers doing their best to convince you that you need their product it can be difficult to know where to start. How do you know if you need to take a supplement? That’s a tough question.
In the ideal world you’d have a blood test but that’s not a realistic option for most of us, so beyond that it is a bit of trial and error.

Start by looking at your diet. If you have a normal healthy and balanced diet with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and do just a small amount of training then there should be no need to supplement your diet. If however, you are putting your body through a lot of stress for example training for an IM or you do not get a good balance from your food then supplements could help make up that nutritional deficit.

In this video, Heather explains a little more detail about what a supplement is and goes through her top picks that can help you improve your triathlon training and racing performance.
