Although I agree that there are some basic nutritional elements that are beneficial to body function, I have always been amused at the array of "sports drinks", "sports bars", and "supplements" that are harked by those who have an economic interest in selling them.
Toby Tanser, who wrote the book titled "More Fire How To Run The Kenyan Way", tells a story about a Westerner who tried to sell "supplements" to Kenyan elite runners. The salesman harked a long winded speech all about the benefits supplements provide for athletes. When the salesman was finished with his hark, the salesman asked if there were any questions. One of the Kenyan trainers in the back of the room responded with .... "So you want my boys to start eating these tablets so that they can start running like the runners in your country??????"
The basic Kalenin diet is maize porridge and milk. They seem to do quite well without "supplements".
