Lately, I have been receiving a ton of interest over the supplement c4 extreme. I have looked up the ingredients and it has some banned substances from the NCAA. Before I tell my student-athletes not to take it, do any of my colleagues know for sure if this pre-workout substance is banned?

The best way to know is contact the NCAA directly. I am assuming it is banned. The first thing on their banned list are stimulants and C4 Extreme contains caffeine and synephrine. I would advise them not to take it. It may work great as a pre-workout, but why take the chance with NCAA regulations-it's not worth it.

I hope this helps!
