Doctor’s Orders

Athletes love and swear by their Sports Supplements. No wonder they’ve become such a big money maker. “We all know the nutrition industry is competitive”, says TDF Sports co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer, TJ Galiardi, an NHL forward. “It generates $150 billion annually for a reason”.
