British Rowing Statement on supplements and under-18s:
"Junior rowers should not be using any supplements without medical prescription; rowers under 18 years of age are advised to concentrate on learning and implementing good training, good diet and well-rehearsed recovery strategies."
Assess the need - do you need a supplement or do you need to eat better?
Assess the risk - is the supplement you're think of taking safe / legal?
Assess the consequences - if you fall foul of anti-doping rules you could be banned from sport for at least 2 years. Is it worth it?
If you aren't eating / drinking well you need to sort this out first!
