Training Guru Blames Supplement for Baseball Team's Woes

continued...

The label states that a serving size is two capsules. Each capsule contains chromium, Ma Huang extract (which contains ephedrine), an extract from the seed of the Brazilian guarana bush (which contains caffeine), and the amino acid L-carnitine.

Every baseball season, one supplement or another becomes popular, Stout says. "Right now, for instance, the Boston Red Sox are all drinking Red Bull," says Stout, who says that ailing Boston pitcher Bret Saberhagen also sought his advice. "I don't have any problem with that, because it is really only ginseng tea and is harmless. There isn't any ingredient in it that can improve their performance, but they think it does, so maybe it helps."
