    How to tell if something works...


    1. Take half the dose or ten times the dose but never the recommended dose and never take it consistently.
    2. Be sure to take as many things concurrently as possible
    3. Measure gains or losses by the scale only. If you haven't gained or lost 20 pounds in 2 weeks then it isn't working.
    4. Make sure your diet is horrible.
    5. Make sure you work out like my grandma.
    6. Switch things up, constantly.
    7. Attribute everything to placebo -- or nothing. Either way, that works great.
    8. Believe marketing hype. Ignore common sense or science -- they can only do you harm.
    9. If it doesn't taste great, it probably doesn't work.
    10. If it sounds to good to be true then it must be the best **** ever!

    Wanted to bump this up because I get so tired of seeing "my gear must be bunk because it's not working" or "that supplement sucks because I didn't gain 20 pounds off of it".

    How do you judge if a supplement or peptide or designer or AAS "works".

    Do you honestly expect an amino acid to work like an androgen? then it is no surprise that you think Glutamine is junk - or HMB for that matter.

    Do you honestly expect herbs to pack on the mass like anadrol? then it is no surprise that you are disappointed.

    Do you judge the effectiveness of a product by the side effects it induces? then it is no wonder some companies advertise their side effects.

    Did you really expect to gain 20 pounds of rock hard muscle in a week? if you did then it is no wonder that you think your anadrol is bunk or your superdrol clone is crap or the supplement you bought sucks.

    if i can't spend $50 and look like a pro then i don't know what else to do. people like you will start to suggest that we have to workout and become dedicated.....screw that


    good day to you sir.......I SAID GOOD DAY!

    Geez you make it sound like if you believe what a supplement manufacturer tells you a product does - then you are an idiot.

    I have some good news. Very very soon there will be a truly unbiased source of supplement information. Many manufacturers and reps will NOT be happy - a few will . Starting late spring this year "the Truth" will begin publication.
    Myself, in conjunction with 2 of the foremost scientific minds in this industry, both of whom btw have worked on supps that ended up falling short and guess what? They ADMIT it? Crazy huh ? Will be publishing online and in print 100% unbiased reviews of supplements. Basic compounds avail across the board...and specific companies proprietary products. This publication will include chemical assays for true ingredient contents, investigate manufacturers claims , investigate marketing practices , include published studies...REAL published studies done on humans(where avail - if not we will explore that as well) , we will do our own small sampling trials as well (100% UNBIASED ones) . No one affiliated with this project has one thing to gain or lose by doing this. All we want is " The Truth". Also you will be given first had scientific reasoning by 2 of the foremost scientific minds in this industry as to why a supplement works...or why it doesn't. We will also be investigating company origins , personal backgrounds etc (you will be amazed WHO you buy products from). We will attempt to show you manufacturing locations (wait till u see where some of these are "made" ).
    At any rate we look forward to providing this helpful source of information . It is one small thing that will hopefully help to clean up a corruption ridden industry. This undertaking involves a lot of time and personal financial expenditure but it is my passion ...and i feel adamantly about this undertaking. Also i want to express thanks for the time and candor that the scientific brain trust is providing. Wait until you see someone in this industry, that has the character to admit a product he helped to synthesize and discover , does not work as advertised and is not worthwhile. THAT'S integrity. THAT'S what we need.
    Also of note any egregious findings will be reported to the FDA. Many dont realize it ..but one FDA investigation most likely will shut down a bogus supplement manufacturer. Its just a matter of reporting it and getting action taken. Difficult yes..impossible no ..likely with connections yes.
    This should go without saying but there will be NO advertising whatsoever in this publication. Thank you and I will keep you all posted.

    from what ive seen on the boards, if u say a specific company is flawed in any way they usually retaliate by threatening lawsuits. their fault they arnt selling what they say they are, but its just the way this messed up world is. good luck on the book, tho. looks very interesting
