Nutritional supplements for America’s Special Ops
A Special Report for NavySeals.com
Special Operations Forces (SOF) such as Navy SEALs, Army Special Forces, Air Force Para-Rescue, and Marine Recon, as well as law enforcement tactical units (SWAT), face unique challenges that manifest themselves both physically and mentally.
The extremes of training and combat can dramatically reduce performance: Immune suppression; changes in mental acuity/increases in reaction time; reductions in androgen production (testosterone); increased susceptibility to cold; increased oxidative stress; and other factors will affect the performance of these soldiers directly or indirectly. These highly-specialized soldiers are always looking for an edge to avoid many of the aforementioned problems, and any edge can mean the difference between life and death, or the ability to perform at their peak.
