Just saw the posting for the breakdown of Animal's newly reformulated Stak product. Noticed GPLC included in the formula but at really low doses. I honestly don't understand why company's throw GPLC into their formulas when the studies have shown that one needs to supplement with around 4+ grams PER DAY EVERY DAY for it to have a positive effect on NOS levels, AND this takes some time to reach as well. I understand that GPLC is not a cheap raw but wow, when there's like only 1/8 or so of the studied amount in a product, what the heck is it really good for?
Less ingredients in products and have the ingredients at efficacious doses people, come on now :P
As for your last sentence though, to a company like Animal, the internet crowd makes up such an insignificant amount of their buys. I have friends that are heavy supplement users (before I corrected them, some I still can't) that can not name a single ingredient in any of the products besides the obvious ones like caffeine or protein.
What a shame. I respect Animal as well because they have some solid products. I'm a big fan of the Pak and Flex. Universal also has some solid basic products at good values. But man, seeing that newformula, I was like, wow. A bunch of hype ingredients tossed together. Smh.
