    Yes sir a few delays always brings out the love

    Strategic was not making excuses. He is correct on all angles and the delay was on purpose to bring the critics to the table..

    Every thread has a strategic plan...

    and at 19.99 for a 30 day supply, I do not expect it to last long at all.

    What critics? I myself am a customer who just can't stand the direction your company has taken in marketing, and is annoyed that REM still hasn't come back. Unless of course you want to merge critics of marketing with critics who might legitimately has issues with the product, but then they can't 'come to the table' as it were until they know what the product in fact is, so your response is a bit odd.

    The critique is of a marketing ploy which always seems to follow the same template. First, imply some mega supplement exists which for various reasons will never be released. Second, in passing note the existence of a much safer, but still ground breaking!, new supplement that will come out soon. Third, give a definite date for more information to come out. Four, ignore promise made in part three and get weird satisfaction from needling anyone who points out that this happens every damn time some new and ground breaking herbal which is just as ineffective as the last new ground breaking herbal came out.

    But whatever bloats your goat, it's your company and your forum. I just much preferred the old marketing approach a la the times of cissus first coming out which was more along the lines of: here's a new product, here's what it does, here's some research supporting those claims. The new world medicine man who's so hip he can't see over his own pelvis peddling herbs of such power the world has never seen and damn the critics and punctuality routine gets old quickly.

    i wish NP would concern themselves more with restocking their inventory than causing undue hype (with close to nothing known about the "secret" product)

    ? This has nothing to do with us easy. Usp labs are an entirely different company that we have been able to work out some bulk powder deals with for our customers. Other than carrying their products, we are two entirely different entities. Jacob didn't even post what this new powder was, in our forum.

    Who can name the hormonal inhibitior of the same enzyme?

    Probably. In all seriousness USP is one of the few companies I'd consider buying herbals from other than generic places like NOW or other such bulk distributors online. Whether it's placebo or actually doing something, my knees are thankful for cissus every day of the week, and REM blew me away as a sleep supplement. I even was in on one of the beta mixes of it. Very cool and bizarre dreams on that. Super saponins gives me a great libido boost, and when all is said and done I need it these days since I work a minimum of 60 hours a week.

    My reservations are with the marketing techniques mainly, and for a while the way products seemed to come and go. I miss REM. The line up seems to have stabilized though.

    yeah I like their products too and am very interested in this offering especially, although with the limited run it seems like I might have to buy it without much feedback on it from others first. It's definitely great how they have a good bulk powder line as well. That said, I understand the concept of "hyping" and it's place with supplements, I just thought it seemed like a strange tactic to say you'd give the info monday with no intention of doing it then? I'm not particularly upset about it either way and am still likely to give this stuff a try, just seems like some interested/neutral customers were put off by some of what went on

    Having tried 11 oxo when it first came out, I too will be interested in this. The limited run stuff bothers me too though. But, I'm not an expert on herb availability/processing so I don't know what to say, other than if a product is good I'd rather it be available more than a few weeks, then never to be seen again.

    As for the purpose of leaving people hanging, it gives them more time to talk, guess, gossip, and build up a thread of a trillion pages or so which gets noticed by passers by on the boards and in search engines. Plus you get market feedback. You ask everyone to guess what it is, you get insight into what it is they really want. This one should be interesting. Bulk Prime would have been nice too. I'd heard some positive things about it, but herbals I don't try anymore unless I can megadose in a budget conscious way.

    Limited run or marketing to get people to hurry to make purchases??? It all sounds too familiar.

    Our bulk powders perform so everything you are insinuating is mute.

    Sales is about providing a product people WANT to buy that is commonsense.

    I'm sure apple did not hype the ipod and hated the overnight make shift camp sites outside retail stores.

    You are become illogical with your attacks.

    limited first run, we've been pretty good about bringing back a powder.

    Good enough. Next, if there is one, leave the caffeine in so I can get through a day without drooling.

    my problems exactly.. With shift work, I sometimes work a short work week, which results in smaller checks.. Hopefully, in a few weeks, there's still some left!

    lol ... I mention to my wife all the time that supplements are all I basically spend money on. I have no problem if she goes to the Mall and spends a few hundred, just as long as I can buy my supps whenever I want.

    a natural inhibitor 11ßHSD1 activity, VAT Attack! down-regulates the conversion of cortisone to metabolically active cortisol, leading to a reduction of skeletal-muscle and adipose-tissue glucocorticoid levels. This supports effective protein synthesis and shunts fat accumulation. Furthermore, considering the existence of a positive relationship between high levels of circulating cortisol and insulin insensitivity, reductions in cortisol levels induce improvements in cellular insulin sensitivity with benefits for blood-glucose optimization, diabetic states, and fat loss.

    That is my saving grace as well, I don't drink or spend money on anything else.
