Sports nutrition is concerned with the intake of sports drinks, bars, powders, and other dietary supplements to enhance athletic performance. Athletes and bodybuilders were the prime consumers of these products a decade ago; however, adoption of these products among recreational and lifestyle users has witnessed a decent increase over the past few years.
