Sports supplements are widely used – from protein powder to BCAAs, chances are you’ve dabbled in a few yourself. But how do they affect your fertility?

Today I’m joined by Accredited Sports Dietitian Aidan Muir from Ideal Nutrition to talk performance supplements.  We discuss a range of supplements and their impact on fertility – including protein powder, omega-3s, caffeine, L-carnitine, even beetroot juice – and determine if they’re even effective!

We consider how each supplement impacts weight, performance and fertility, and share our tips on what to be aware of when buying supplements, and what to avoid while pregnant.

You can find Aidan on Instagram at @aidan_the_dietitian or tune into his podcast here.
