    Should LG Sciences release more "Basic" supplements?


    If you're on our Facebook page, you have probably seen this question posed; however, if you're not, would you like to see us release more "Basic" supplements such as dessicated liver tabs, multi-vitamins, and joint complexes?

    Any and all suggestions or comments are appreciated!

    It would depend entirely on the product honestly. I prefer to just eat liver than take the tabs, so I'd pass on that, but a multi-vitamin? Well, I've been wanting a Powdered Multi, one I could add to a pre-workout shake, and noone seems to make one. There's Essentials, but I get all the creatine I need from AS right now, so that's out.

    I could go for a good superfood powder too - I realized everything I've come across is pretty underdosed once I actually sat down and did the math.

    Finally, how 'bout a good hydrolysate protein blend to stack with BC+EAA for intra-workout?

    I dont know man . . . the thing is, everyone is doing it or has done it. You will still need to find the edge over the competition.

    In saying that, your flavoured BCAAs/EAAs blend is the bomb.

    I like Resolve's idea of a superfood powder - that would stack nicely with existing products.

    Okay, so we've got superfoods/extracts. I like that idea.

    Any reason you are against the dessicated liver? Have you guys used any of the "good" products out there (there's only one company I know of who makes top quality dessicated liver). In a natural sense, I've never felt so dense and solid as I do on that stuff. I'm actually ashamed I haven't forked over the cash to buy it, but have pumped it into other things that I don't necessarily "need."

    How about a multi-vitamin/joint complex/nutrient partitioner. Something that you take 3x/day in 2-3 capsule doses. How does that sound?

    Any other ideas, throw them our way! Thanks for the suggestions Resolve and JKP!

    Honestly, I haven't used desiccated liver - it's just one of those things that seems...unnecessary. When you only have so much cash to spend every month on supps, other things take precedence. But having not tried them, I could drastically be missing out for all I know.

    The multi/joint/partitioner is a great idea. Originality like that is what would have to set these "Basics" apart from the competition. As Jakellpet said, EVERYONE makes a multi, so if you want more than a tiny sliver of the available market, you need something that gives you an edge.

    Sounds like you're talking about a 'Super-Slin' . . . nice. That'll give you 'The Edge'

    A multi-vitamin with joint support and a "SLIN Blend/Complex" sounds like an awesome idea. It would be less support than SLIN itself, but helpful nevertheless. ALA+Cinnamon or something?

    I really like the superfood idea, too. Spirulina and some other goodies, perhaps?

    I'd be down for some good quality liver at the right price; I've had some iron problems from the high amounts of cardio done (Hemolytic Anemia) plus the occassional caffeine use.

    As for Green Superfoods, I just stocked up. Got a few lbs of Chlorella, Spirullina, Wheatgrass, Barley Grass.... ugh do they ever taste bad but I'm sure it's worth it lol.

    I could do without the grasses in a superfood. Spirulina and Chlorella are cool, some good berry extracts and herbs would make it killer. I've actually been working on formulating my own blend...

    Hey now we're talking IC - Spirulina is highly under-rated IMO. The superfood idea could run solo, or even as an additive . . . ?

    I'm generally a generic-brand consumer of these types of products, however something like this could definately swing my vote.

    These are all great ideas. Keep them coming.

    Now that the Anabolic Diet is so popular, I think the superfoods would be a great idea. It's hard to get some of that stuff in, especially the fruits.

    A coleus + green tea weightloss capsule sounds supreme! I've never seen those two put together in one cap, but people are always stacking them for recomposition effects and weightloss.

    So far, we've got...

    Coleus + Green Tea
    Superfoods
    Cycle support products
    Multi-vitamin/joint support/nutrient uptake
    Hydrolysate protein blend
    Dessicated liver
    Fish oil (there would have to be some distinguishing characteristic to this - Maybe EPA/DHA/CLA)

    Now that tea has been mentioned, I also think an LG-specific line of actual tea would be something cool to look into. I know how many tea-fiends are out there. It's just a thought...Maybe different teas geared towards metabolism-boosting and antioxidant effects. "Bodybuilding-specific tea" if you will.

    I've always liked LG for their hormonal products. There are so many people producing "basic" stuff, it would be a tough sell. But, the superfoods thing doesn't sound bad. Maybe a powder that had all those cool phytonutrients with some dextrose and ALA (or other insulin "potentiators" or "mimickers".

    Hormonal products are great, but let's not forget that you have to have everything else in order first, and that means going "back to the basics." - Basics should be the foundation for every bodybuilder.

    I'm not arguing that point. Initial question was what I would like LG to produce... and the basics aren't what I would like to see from LG.

    We'll definitely still be pumping out hormonals. - Some exciting new stuff lined up in that realm.

    basic hormone products, especially the mmv2 compound by itself, no support complex, no sublingual, just the hormone, old school delivery. The rest of the stuff surrounding this hormone in the current product and the sublingual delivery are the only things stopping me from purchasing the mmv2. Would love to dose that at about 700-1000 mgs per day for 6-8 weeks, think it would be a great base with another compound, eg, epi or hdrol.

    A multi and a fish oil product. I would buy for life if the price is right and considering all stuff from LG sciences, i know it will be top notch.

    This is the trend - especially with the uncertainty of hormonal products in the US, companies are covering their bases by branching out into other areas.

    I would love to see more basic supps out of LG, especially as the gov is becoming stricter on hormonals. it is nice to see innovative supps like pSARM and T-911 (especially if it didnt have any Y). But I think the trend with the protein and bcaa could keep going into multis, joint support, etc.

    I wouldnt want to see liver tabs though, as the liver is meant to filter out toxins and with everything they put into cows these days...

    Just seems like with liver tabs you may be consuming many unwanted chemicals as well as prions.

    I would love to see a couple of things. One company makes a supp that is geared to male consumers. The product claims to 'Reduces excess body fat-especially in the abdominal region. Increases the body's natural production of testosterone. Preserves and builds lean muscle tissue. Enhances the body's cellular repair mechanisms. Facilitates the conversion of a powerful-cancer-promoting- estrogen, to the safer beneficial 2-hydroxy and 2-methoxy estrogens. Maintains prostate health. Fights excess free radicals. Helps the body deal with excess stress. Reduces excess inflammation'
    This to me would be something I would take every day and I would consider a basic supp. All natural ingredients also make it very appealing and easy to market. The other product I'd like to see would be a super powder supp that would include daily intake of veggies/greens. One that has hawthorn b for heart, milk thistle for liver, taurine for heart/clarity/energy.

    whatever happened to the PB lipotropic protein? Any chance of bringing that back on your site at least?

    For basics, I would say price is number 1 factor for me

    yeah, i definitely didn't mean to imply otherwise. I just meant that pricing is probably my number one factor for basics personally. i really like the green tea and forskolin combo idea too. now what about the PB lipotropic protein!!

    From what I understand, all of the previous flavors will be upheld in our protein, but it may be a while from now that they are all offered, but I may be wrong. Craig or Eric could help answer this more clearly.

    I am currently using the new chocolate and like it very well, but I agree that the peanut butter was DELICIOUS!
