A second paragraph should describe the physiological evidence supporting the proposed mechanism, i.e., how or why the supplement may do what they say it should do. In your third paragraph summarize your findings regarding the four questions listed above and make a recommendation regarding the use of this supplement. You should site at least 3 peer-reviewed original research sources (meta-analyses are OK, reviews are don’t count) for full credit. Cite your sources in APA format.
