The use of different supplements to aid in recovery is widespread throughout the physically active collegiate population. While it is evident that collegiate athletes and active individuals often use various supplements to aid in recovery, it is still unclear what supplements are being used most often and are perceived as most beneficial. The purpose of this study is to look at the most common nutritional recovery strategies being used by collegiate athletes and active individuals. This research will be conducted using a cross-sectional study survey design. The participants of this study are University of Dayton students, ages 18-23, that participate in any of the division 1, club, or intramural sports, as well as individuals that exercise at least 3 times a week. In order to collect and measure data, a survey will be disseminated to UD athletes and active individuals to assess their current supplement intake in regard to recovery. The data will then be further examined using both a descriptive and chi-squared analysis to examine recovery to reasoning and recovery to effectiveness. Results will be presented during the presentation.
