GPLC at Nutraplanet
- 05-01-2010, 04:29 PM
Nutra needs to understand that the big picture is not just about profit margins, but giving customers what they want. So what if Nutra only makes 10 cents profit per 50g? Nutra will make up for it with the other $400-$600 I typically drop per order. I know Nutra doesn't have the BEST price out there. Nutra just has good overall prices, and a large inventory. That's what attracted me to them after some bad customer service at BN years ago.
My vote is for you guys to carry it at competitive prices even if the profit margins aren't going to be large. Off to the other site I go...

Overall, NutraPlanet is customer-focused, and will certainly reflect this in its decision here.

Guys... THIS is truly it! Forget everything else based in theory, rat studies, and faulty logic - GPLC IS TRUE MUSCULAR FIREPOWER!
Pumps like CRAZY, endurance, and if you're lean enough you'll be a veiny mess! I have been using GPLC for just over two full months now, and it is simply amazing. I was going to re-up from Primordial, but the more e-commerce merchants to carry it the better for the consumer! STOCK IT UP ALONG WITH WHEY HYDRO AND RE-STOCK P-SLIN POWDER.
Imagine... GPLC + BCAA + Micronized Monohydrate + Karbo-Lyn + Beta Alanine + na-r-ALA + Corosolic Acid 20% + Glycerine! You'd be getting stitches across the top of your biceps!

This will completely take care of any batch testing and potency concerns - they are the best. I have been taking Jarrow Formulations GPLC for a while, and switched over to EST's Plasmatic - but anymore, I am home brewing and capping my own products, so the more raws the BETTER - ESPECIALLY this work horse supplement!

Any insight into which way your leaning about carrying GPLC? I would much rather buy from Nutra since I can pick up other supplements opposed to Beyond this Century or Primordial Performance where it is basically a one stop destination merely for one item. Also, with the 10 and 20% Primordial codes floating around out there, it almost makes up for shipping fees (if spending under $100)... so I would truly like to see this item carried by NP so I can have a source for all the SCIENCE backed and validated raws to cap my own supplements.

I've been discussing pricing with Sigma Tau to try and get a better deal so we can pass it on to you guys...

To be perfectly honest, though, I do not see how this is superior to Propionyl-L-Carnitine.
PLCAR costs less and requires less of a dose to be active.
With GPLC, the Glycine is going to cleave off of the PLCAR and too much Glycine all at once can make people overly drowsy, hence why you may see some companies over-compensating with stimulants when using GLPC in a blended pre-workout product.
I mean, to each his own, but I'm just not seeing why people want to pay almost double for essentially PLCAR + Glycine.
If I'm missing something, someone please enlighten me. Everyone knows I've been wrong before.

Not sure if that is the one where they used 4.5gms but that seems to be what everyone including myself are dosing for this stuff. I do it pre workout and on workout days only.

From my short lived (about 2 months) experience with GPLC, it has been absolutely fantastic - seriously eye opening. It has been such an effective supplement, as my supply dwindles, I am actually hoarding away the remaining dosages for certain muscle groups, because it is truly THAT good. It is so rare that I can feel a supplement work, I have never really taken price into consideration as a drawback.
I would LOVE to know how the other iterations and bonds of Carnitine perform and exhibit their specific set of actions vs. GPLC; such as the prop version you mentioned above, as well as the L-Car-L-Tar and even the Acetyl type. Does each newer and more stable version simply climb up the rankings in efficacy with a linear pattern, concerning androgen receptor modulation, endurance and fat burning support, blood flow augmentation, vascularity and muscle load capacity, etc? I would find this to be nearly impossible, and would tend to think each version has its own strengths - where as GPLC has the demonstrated affinity to exert its actions within muscle tissue (which is why it might be a superior choice in the realm of bodybuilding specific intent and usage)
Along with the above information and comparative analysis between two or all of the Carnitine varieties... I would also like to try a gram for gram identical dosing protocol pre-workout to come to a better conclusion.

WOULD LOVE TO SEE LCLT/PLCAR IN BULK.ANY CHANCE?

I've seen it for $120 for 300 grams and that's coming from Australia so who knows the shipping $40 for 100grams IS fair, this stuff is expensive and I have no problem supporting NP, just be realistic about this one guys it's PRICEY.

Also... sadly... anything with true science behind it (GPLC, na-r-ALA, Pycnogenol etc) will always be pricey, because they actually work
The only exclusions to this rule, would be Creatine and BCAAs as they have been widely available for decades and the raws are easier to manufacture.

stuff isnt cheap!!
My stash of Superior Nutraceuticals GPLC is going for 90 dollars a 250g tub on the web.
And I have another pile of RPN LCLT that is OOS.
