More proof that a lot of OTC supplement companies are still untrustworthy!

It’s no wonder bodybuilders are paranoid fvckers, not only do we have to wonder if the var you bought is really winny but we can’t even trust the stuff we get from the health food shop.

It’s not the tren, everyone actually is out to fvck us over! Lol

I remember when a very popular American Creatine & dextrose mix came out about 20 years ago now in the UK and man, after a serving of that I would be buzzing out of my skull all day! It was too much sometimes but hell did my lifts go up massively - there was definately something more than just creatine in that stuff. That was before all the tests came out proving a lot of them actually had pro hormones hidden in them etc...

For you guys that do still use supplements I challenge you to stop taking them for a couple weeks and see how much better your gut feels.

Why because of all the synthetic crap and the the gelatin?

Not to mention all whey protein is mostly denatured and useless.

Of course not, they're mostly from Utah and have bought off, sorry, ahm... I mean contributed to Utah's Senator Orin Hatch who acts as their junkyard dog when it comes to government oversight over BDS (botanical dietary supplements). In fact, the law is so loose, that there is no testing or control by the government before, during or after production, and that the manufacturers are entrusted with governing their own operations and practices. They can claim whatever and market however, so long they put '…Not Intended to Diagnose, Treat, Cure or Prevent Any Disease." somewhere on the package. The FDA only steps in when massive product-related illness or fatalities occur. Think of OxyElite Pro and the original Jack3d.

The supplement market is deliberately unregulated. I recall seeing a special awhile back about it. Several senators from states that produce the bulk of many dietary supplements thwarted any attempt to hold the industry to account for what's going into their product. I think we know where the campaign contributions were going.
