Yes, he pops lots of pills and he works out rigorously, but in 10 NFL seasons, Bill Romanowski has 914 tackles and zero games missed. Maybe he's on to something. Here's a look at Romo's daily intake of nutritional supplements.
?50 mg coenzyme Q10: Helps the body produce energy.
?1,000 mg vitamin C: A powerful antioxidant.
?10 mg vitamin E: May help hard-training athletes maintain a stronger immune system.
?5 g creatine-monohydrate: Increases body's energy.
?1,800 mg essential fatty acids (EFA): Fats not produced by the body; helps prevent inflammation.
?1,000 mg beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate (HMB): An amino acid metabolite that appears to increase the body's ability to build muscle and burn fat.
?700 ml protein powder shake with 20 g whey protein powder. "Try the vanilla," Romo says of the shake.
?800 mg chondroitin sulfate with 1,000 mg glucosamine: Taken together, or "stacked," as Romo says, this dietary supplement combination may "strengthen connective tissue and lube the joints" and "keep 'em feeling good."
