From professional athletes to recreational sports competitors, there are those people who are always looking for a performance edge. This results in some seeking out banned performance enhancing substances. These synthetic substances alter the athlete or competitors body in a way that was not possible without it. Resulting in increased strength, endurance and overall increased performance. Many of these substances called "PED's" or "Performance Enhancing Drugs" can have negative effects on the body over long term use and are not allowed in most professional sports competitions. The good news is, mother nature provides her own performance enhancing substances without the risk and consequences of their synthetic, PED counterparts!

Which spilled into the athletic community to help power high performance athletes. This caused the information to get out to the public on the benefits to these supplements, leading us to the present day where even the busy stay at home mom uses supplements to fill nutritional gaps, boost energy, replace a meal like breakfast and more! But, where did this story of supplementation really begin?
