The Muscle Trap: Supplement Use By Men

  • Even young men worry about their body image. Usually body dysmorphic disorder is associated with females who think they don’t “measure up” to media ideals. However, normal, healthy males can feel physically inadequate when compared with hyper-developed male professional athletes and body builders. It can lead them to become compulsive about building muscle, spending long hours in the gym, or it can lure them to experiment with supplements and other “quick fix” substances. One of the main concerns about supplement use is the lack of control over the quality of the product. With lack of regulation, supplements may be contaminated by other substances, may not contain the stated amount of the active ingredient, may lack standardization of the active ingredient, and may not do what the label claims. Some cases of inadvertent blood doping have occurred due to contaminated combination supplements.
