    Rant: Supplement I saw..........


    $49.99 at GNC.

    MRI ISF-7 I believe is what it was..... Insulin Sensitizer for Athletes.

    Active Ingredient: Alpha Lipoic Acid.

    It seems as if GNC is the only one who carries their overpriced stuff. I should do the same, put some Tribulus with a fancy label and call it Test 250 - Clinically proven testosterone augmentation formula for the serious athlete LOL

    GNC sucks. I gave up my gold card a year and a half ago.

    I quickly realized how good of an idea that was - I get 20% off coupons in for the 2 weeks at the end of the month. (Instead of a mere 7 days with the gold card.)

    I once watched these 2 over-weight women ask the guy behind the counter (who - he admitted - knew less about the supplements he sold than I did) about one of the transdermal fat loss products they sell (I forget the name - it's in a red box).

    The price was in the $60 range. OUTRAGEOUS.

    So - I waited for the guy to walk off - and I wrote down the address to NP with the name "Lipoderm-Y" and the price ($25). They left without buying that crap.

    GNC hates Jmh80.

    Just go in there and tell the guy you know nothing about supplements. You are starting to work out and have about $500 to spend on vitamins and supps. Then when he has you all rung up at the register, say "Sorry, I changed my mind." and walk out. Hahaha!

    Real problem is how GNC does businees within that screws the prices at the stores.
