Stardust: it is entirely possible for you to get into something like that. Hell, with your build and numbers @ 16yrs I still don't think you really exist.
I know a fitness model who isnt as built as you and shes constantly working with FRS energy taking shots next to lance armstrong and derek fisher.....I think its a lack of exposure.

I doubt it would kill them, but their kidneys would take a major blow. Jaundice at the most (then im sure theyll head to the ER) lol

it's not the marketing. We live in a society that wants to sue anyone for farting or sneezing the wrong way, that they are definitely not going to take a chance and not cover their asses.

I agree. BCAAs and creatine are not harmful.

However, an 18 year old is a legal adult and can make informed decisions on their own(like it or not). Therefore, old enough to sign waivers

Because most supplement companies hire steroid users who everyone recognizes and wants to aspire to be like. They feel if you see this larger then life person taking there oh so special creatine, or there new mass gainer shake, you are going to assume that is what made them big, or put them where they were. There is nothing new under the sun.

Kai Greene occasionally works out in my gym, and never once have I seen him drink the products he endorses, not to say he doesn't but to point out its just marketing and advertising. Not to say this is with everyone or in every scenario, but in most of them.

It is also legal repercussions with under 18 year olds as well.

I see your guys' points. I just wish it would be easier to start out when you're younger. You would think it might encourage more younger athletes. But I guess there's a lot of legalities and things you just can't get around. It's unfortunate.

I think it would send the wrong message to younger athletes to not only sponsor them and endorse their name but ALSO encourage them to use sports supplements, causing them to become less self reliant in their training goals and more dependent on science.

Personally I don't even suggest weight training to anyone under the age of 16, and from there suggest they take about 2 years to get their basics down, and then from there consider supplementation....etc.

Just my take on things...

I agree with most of this post but now kids that want to compete seriously in sports have to start weight lifting younger. Most contact sports (football, wrestling, hockey, etc.) will have their freshman lifting with the team and if you're not lifting you're not going to be able to compete with them.

Well I guess, to a certain degree. But think of it this way...whether or not they choose to sponsor younger athletes or not, it does not stop the kids from buying supplements.

I started weight training before I was 16, and I know a lot of other people did so as well. I think it can be perfectly healthy at a younger age so long as you know what you're doing, and you do your research. Playing things safe, not just throwing around weight aimlessly and injuring yourself.

Maybe it would be one thing for pump supplements, energy supplements, or fat burners (pH/HD cycles completely out of the question), but if it's supplements that are natural and have been shown to be beneficial to people even at younger ages (whey, fish oils, BCAA's, creatine, etc.) I don't see why not.

Again, just curiosities, always nice to see other POV's.

There aren't many (if any) studies on supplement and teens, so in generally supplement companies don't want to directly look like they're endorsing supps for teens. Creatine is a good example of this. Creatine is assumed to be safe for teens, but many in the industry will have a heart attack if you recommend creatine for a teen? Why? Potential impact on growing kidneys/whatever.

Not proven impact...just potential.

Personally, I fell that is supplement companies in any way align themselves with a teen market, they will draw attention to the entire industry. Sooner of later some Senator will lay an egg, and supplements will be age rated or labeled or whatever.
