Never got a Purus product in the past...but if this PreWO gots VPX that scared, it def deserves a look and a try.DISCLAIMER: Anything that I post on this forum should not be taken as/IS NOT medical advice. All workout programs/protocols, diets,

Grambo, I'm sure as you and the other Purus fellas already know, the supplement industry is just as political as the next thing. When a certain someone was my rep at Lonestar Distribution, VPX was crammed down my throat constantly. Every time I ordered, "we're running a special on VPX...blah, blah, blah." I never purchased one VPX supplement just because of this. When you know they have a better margin on this line than others, and they are continually trying to push it off on you, it just pisses you off. And I'd say a large majority of the samples in shipments were VPX as well. Just makes you think.

Ya we are aware Ironhyde, we are more amused by all this than anything. It's to obvious it's all bs.
Also this was the letter they sent to a ton of our retailers and lonestar itself to try to hurt our sakes and get people to cancel orders so it's shadier than a simple blog post.
It's all good Purus on it's way

Doesn't this fall under the definition of slander??? I'm not big on suing anyone, but when another company starts spreading rumors and lies about another company and the products they produce, I'm thinking that's grounds for a lawsuit. Like you said, this is way beyond a simple blog.

Yes....and No. In reality yes they are basically slandering our name but a lot of their accusations are things like "Do you want a product that MIGHT be tainted?" this kind crap gives them wiggle room to say we didn't SAY that it was tainted.
In the end it would not be worth our time and money. Especially since there is not much backlash against us in particular.
**BTW I have been meaning to PM you back and just been out of town this weekend so will get right on that!

She used to work for Lonestar.
She left to work for VPX.
She left VPX. Long story short, Europa got mad because she was a VPX rep in the south and use to work for Lonestar. VPX sent her to the west coast so she left VPX.
She wanted to come work for Purus, however VPX said they would sue because she was under contract.
Very nice girl that got in a bad spot, that's about it...

ok so is this more due to Faulkner's involvement with Purus labs now after her supposed falling-out with VPX, or what?
i dont see where Purus attacked VPX in the paper for Muscle Marinade... unless VPX has the patent on Creatinol O-phosphate (COP)?... that seems to be a selling point for some of their main products, so i can understand the concern if COP is said not to be as effective as they claim... but to bash the paper Purus put out referencing COP and then maliciously making a bunch of claims to slander Purus Labs due to this...
they must REALLY be worried that ALOT of people will see this info... and on top of that, worried that Purus labs is a serious threat to their share of the market?? or am i way off?...

I don't believe any of this has to do with her really.
Basically you have the right gist otherwise though. They are mad about COP having no science behind it I guess.
There is one study I am aware of and it was not done orally and it was on women (elderly I believe) and increased grip strength slightly.

We have not manufactured ANY PH/DS products since October-November. They are even almost all off the market completely as they sell out. What retailers have is all we have. There are not even any really in house anymore.
So there is absolutely zero way for there to be cross contamination of any kind.

Muscle Building, Amino Acid, Creatine, Beta Alanine, Protein Peptide Break Through! Awesome science and a university behind it. I can't post links yet but I have been using NO-Shotgun and the results for me are awesome. I found the article on their website under the products section.

Not sure what you are saying in this post? And first post praising NoShotgun in this thread?
