Unformatted text preview: Does the supplement improve performance?: No, although it may improve muscle strength if there is originally a lack of magnesium. 5. Is this substance banned by the NCAA or the IOC?: No. 6. Would you use this product? Explain why or why not: I would not use this product unless it was absolutely necessary, for example, if I had an extreme magnesium deficiency. This is because the amount of magnesium needed daily can be taken in through diet. 7. What advice would you give to your athlete regarding this supplement?: I would tell them that it is unnecessary to take this supplement, and it does not improve performance. If they thought they had a magnesium deficiency I would recommend foods with high magnesium content for them to include in their diet. 8.
