Specialized sports nutrition is of great importance for improving the working capacity and maintaining the health of professional athletes, as well as people leading an active lifestyle. The purpose of this paper is to study the prevalence of sports nutrition among students of sports specialties, as well as to analyze students’ awareness of the goals, types, and biological effects of these products. The study presents survey results of the student-athletes of the Ural State University of Physical Education (Chelyabinsk, Russia) (n=74). The survey shows that 60% of students use sports nutrition. Students get information about sports nutrition mainly from advertising, acquaintances, and the Internet. The most popular types of sports nutrition have been identified: proteins, energy drinks, vitamin, and mineral complexes. The study clearly shows that students have a low level of knowledge about the metabolic and side effects of these products. The obtained results can be used for identifying problems in the field of using sports nutrition and formulating a strategy for their solution.
