Body Talks: Chat with the Experts

Learn about nutritional supplements from UofM experts

January 15, 2016 — 

Taking a stroll down the heath food aisle at your local grocery store can be an overwhelming experience.  From protein powders and vitamins, to minerals and pre-workout concoctions, it’s hard to know where to begin. So many questions and so little expert advice available. That is, until now.

Body Talks, to the rescue.

What: Body Talks: Chat with the Experts — Using Supplements
Who: Stephen Cornish, Faculty of Kinesiology & Recreation Management; Semone Myrie, Department of Human Nutritional Sciences
When: Thursday, Jan 21, 2016, 5:00 p.m.
Where: Sessions will be held on the steps of the Applied Research Centre located beside the Active Living Centre Agora — 430 University Cres. (Parking available in adjacent lot).

Using Supplements will discuss traditional and “trending” nutritional supplements used for performance enhancing purposes, but may also have health related benefits associated with them.  Discussion points will include: the dose of supplement to take, potential side effects, and the timing of supplementation ingestion around a workout.

Learn about everything from warm-up exercises to nutrition for exercise and training. Recent exercise fads and trends covered in the media will also be discussed.
