Olympic gold a win for supplements

Olympic gold a win for supplements

A few weeks back we wrote about a couple of elite athletes who rely on their supplements to keep them in perfect health and Olympic condition. We weren’t at all surprised to see how well they did.


Back in 2008 in Beijing, Susan Francia brought home gold in the women’s eight rowing event. And Laura Bennett finished fourth in the women’s triathalon.

This year in London Francia again won gold with her eight indomitable teammates. These ladies prove themselves to be powerhouses of health and fitness again and again. While we know the training has a lot to do with it, Francia still swears that her supplements, especially ribose, make a big difference in her recovery and sustained energy.



Laura Bennett started strong and held her place in the top ten for most of her event, but fell behind in the final run. Though Bennett is a strong runner she fell from 10th at the end of the first lap to 17th by the finish. But here in Boulder where Bennett and her husband have made their home, we’re just as proud of her accomplishment as if she came in first.
