Those wondering why bigger companies would be threatened, i goes a little deeper.
Many companies "think" for some reason that Purus Labs is a house brand for Lonestar Distribution because we are next door. Purus is the number 5 seller of all supplement companies at Lonestar even after we discontinued all pros. We sell more than some of these "big" companies some speak of with only a few products. With that said, when Purus launches MM on Tuesday it will be one of, if not the best selling PreWO in the 2nd larges distribution company in the US. We've already pre sold over 7,000 jugs. Nothing in the industry can meet its claims. So if it was a house line these companies are saying it would pushed instead of their products. i.e. GNC/Muscle Tech
The thing is, we are in many other distribution warehouses including 2 overseas so really there is no reason to think Purus is a house line. There are distributors that have house lines, however Lonestar does not.
Other large companies have cried about our white paper explaining the zero oral effects of N.O. It's one of the most popular ingreds in most Pre-Wrokouts and it has zero effect orally and we've provided the research to show that. The current best selling PreWO's have N.O. in them so they are crying.
BTW: Research with blood results coming soon on our next product SLINShot.

But then again, it made me realize how great of a product this might be.
Can't wait to add Muscle Marinade to my list of supplements ....thanks PURUS....as always

Ill never buy a VPX product. That's unprofessional and totally uncalled for. White Papers have never really been a scientific tool.....at least to my knowledge.

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?...
02-15-2010, 07:15 PM
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.
