Nutritional and Dietary Supplements Policy

BY ANDRES FOCIL
Nutritional and Dietary Supplements Policy

The University of Arkansas may provide only non muscle-building nutritional supplements to a student-athlete at any time for the purpose of providing additional calories and electrolytes, provided the supplements do not contain any NCAA banned substances.  UAMDA employees and staff shall not provide or recommend the use of any supplements(s) that contain NCAA banned or prohibited substances.

Many nutritional/dietary supplements contain NCAA banned substances.  In addition, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not strictly regulate the supplement industry. Therefore, purity and safety of nutritional/dietary supplements cannot be guaranteed.  Impure supplements may lead to a positive UAMDA or NCAA drug test.  A student-athlete who uses supplements does so at his own risk.
