According to Pieter Cohen, a professor at Harvard Medical School, there are really only two types of sports supplements: those that are safe but don’t work, and those that might work but have side effects, especially at higher than normal levels.  “If any supplement, no matter how beneficial, has a pharmaceutical effect, it’s also got a downside,” he says.  “There’s no way to get around that basic principle.”
