    Thumbs down USP Prime Review


    I joined up specifically to give my review of Prime. First of all, I paid over 200 dollars for 3 bottles of this stuff and I'm honestly looking into ways to get my money back, perhaps through an ombudsman or legal entity though it seems it's not worth the effort for 200 or so dollars..

    I wasn't really aware of the contents, to be fair I kind of bought into a lot of the hype that went around, which is unlike me, but I was happy that the industry was able to produce something new and exciting. Anyways, I always make reasonable progress in my lifts so yeah I could write on here that I was on Prime and I increased my bench by xx lbs.. but I won't. Because the truth of the matter is - I just pissed my money away.

    On Prime, off Prime - no difference. There wasn't so much as a day over the cycle that I thought yeah maybe I'm getting something out of this.

    I done some research into Prime recently - and I came up with some Real interesting facts. Firstly - Prime isn't as strong as Dianabol as there magazine adverts say. lets get that clear. Prime isn't even as useful as cat bile to a powerlifter. Now, Prime is made of tribulus acquaticus and terminalia chebula. Sounds f'ing fancy that. But it's not. It's not really trib - it's a waterchestnut that's a fast growing weed all over waterlogged regions of the world. The terminalia is a fruit that's eaten in Pakistan - they eat it in syrup for a snack. But they aren't jacked. They did some trials on terminalia - and the best they came up with was it's maybe good for rat's intestinal health or some rubbish. Who gives a toss really.

    I had a friend of mine who's from QingDao pull me a favor and contact some exporters in Southern China - turns out there's nothing fancy about tribulus acquaticus at all. They have it stockpiled and demand is low. No backorder or any rubbish like the website tries to make out - further, there's nothing seasonal about waterchestnuts. No special growing method, nada.

    Looking back I can't believe how stupid I was to think this product even had the potential to work. It's no doubt the biggest scam yet, and trust me, I've taken some dodgy supplements.

    I'm not sold on it either, but don't act like it can't do good for some people.

    You did all that research for one post, never being a member at this board? Kudos. Though - and I have never really say this - I am not necessarily inclined to believe you. I have seen several aliases created on BB.com specifically to slander USP Labs, and particularly Jacob. I find it odd you would do this amount of "research", for one post.

    If this is valid, I apologize; however, something seems amiss. Not because you thought PRIME was ineffective, that is bound to happen. More or less because that is the most amount of work I have ever seen for one post.

    Post a receipt along with the 3 empty bottles in this thread(then it will be mailed to my address with the empyt bottles) and I will refund your money.

    Funny you take the opposite route for a refund instead of contacting us directly but I have a hunch this is not about a refund...

    God Bless America Banner is a nich touch. Kudos!

    Seems fair. Once you have posted your receipt, ScamWatch, e-mail it to the address in my signature and I will attend to your refund.

    Hedychium is a genus of perennial plants native to tropical Asia and the Himalayas, commonly growing to between 120 and 180 cm tall. Common names include garland flower, ginger lily, and kahili ginger. Some species are grown as ornamental plants.

    The Hedychium coronarium (white ginger) is the National Flower of Cuba where it is known as "Flor de Mariposa" (lit. Butterfly flower) due to its similarity to a flying white butterfly. This species is fragrant and women garnished themselves with these flowers during Spanish colonization of Cuba. The intricate structure of the inflorescence allowed women to hide and carry secret messages important to the independence cause inside it.[citation needed] It is said that a guajiro's house (farmers) is not comp.....

    Damn it. I thought I was responding to this USP thread, but it appears to have just been placebo effect. Sorry.

    To be fair... He should be able to come up with the receipt easily since it was most likely ordered via interweb... but I cannot say I keep an empty bottle when I am finished with said product.

    Just a thought.

    He said he was actively searching for a way to get a refund and through his admission, he has years of experience in supplementation. He knows the procedures for a refund.

    He should have this at arms reach, and I'm surprised it has not been posted..

    This is the same guy at bb.com that has been banned for creating multiple user names.

    Do you know this for a fact?
    If so, that's pretty fucked up that someone would go to this extent.

    Agreed.. the reciept should be no issue... but when I run anything, I throw away a bottle as I finish... people are told the magic happens so many weeks in on prime... usually into their second bottle... so I can see someone being optimistic and not thinking to keep an empty bottle.

    But like I said.. that was just my own opinion, and fine to be dismissed at will.

    I'd feel like a jerk if I ever requested my money back for a supplement. Anytime I buy one I consider it non-refundable once I open it.

    I think I returned something to GNC once, but it was GNC...That store doesn't have a soul.

    I couldn't give a flying fk either way my friend.

    These threads have been done and dusted to death - I can either ignore them, or trade bull**** for bull****.

    So no need to get yourself hot under the collar about it to the point where you feel the need to 'neg' someone who sits on the other side of the fence.

    Enjoy your Xmas break. I'll consider the 'negs' a badge of honor.

    Haha, I'm truly offended.

    .. sorry, I just won't sink to the low of name calling or dumb a$$ derogatory comments. My neg was fully explained .. the user hasn't even responded, yet he's labeled as a scam already. He might not be among those who needs 8 hours of forum time a day, yet you labeled him as a scam/hater, and went for it.

    .. it just shows lack of character, imo, but take it for what it is.

    .. oh, and you definitely proved yourself as the 'bigger man' ..

    Well when administration advises you that ghost accounts are created by competing companies you tend to lean of the defensive side.

    As far as jumping to assumptions isn't that what you just did with Jackellpet in reference to becoming a rep?

    I'm perplexed by your double standards

    Your comments just make me laugh, man. Major lack of character, as well as maturity. But hey, you do what you got to do.
