    So many supplements...


    ...that my head spins.

    I try to keep up with the supplement market, but it's impossible with a new product coming out every 2 minutes.


    With names like armegeddeon, and posedion, and venom, lol. I have no idea if I'm taking cobra venom orally to increase my igf-1 or beta hydroxyedysterones to improve my insulin sensitivity.


    Does anyone else have this problem? lol

    I try to not buy anything that is "Just coming out". I usually stick with tried and true products that way I can read a little about what the "guinea pigs" found out on the new ones. I quit trying the Greatest supp ever a few years ago it cost too much to chase the magic pill or powder. I actually enjoy the ads for the new stuff. It's amazing what they pay for the space and what they say in them.

    i think there really are alot of new innovative and exciting companies coming out, and they compliment the already established companies. Its exciting for the industry and gets me pumped to attend my 1st Arnold Expo next year!!

    you have to go into a dark room with alot of strangers and let them touch you in ways you never thinked it was possible and make you do weird stuff, each pearson is representing a company the last guy standing thats not tired and can give you a pounding like theres no tomorrow thats the company you can rep for

    Seriously, to be a rep, you can be chosen, because you stand out from the crowd, or apply in a thread that a company made that is looking for reps.

    I agree with that strategy. If you go back and read some old posts, everytime a new supp comes out everybody is talking about it and saying how awesome it is and that they'll take it forever. In most cases, a year later nobody's taking it or talking about it anymore. The fact is that most of these supplements provide little more than placebo effects. If people are still excited about a supplement after 12-18 months (once the bandwagon effect has subsided) then it may be worth trying.

    Big difference between a "new" compound, and companies reformulation nutrients and finding synergistic relationships.

    I generally stick with supps that are unanimous to make a difference. I would be perfectly happy using only BCAA's and proteins. Not to say I don't like other supps, but I realize that they will only help so much.

    I am glad that the companies on this board do their own research and try to bring innovative products to the market. Come to think of it, I can't really think of the last time I used a supp that wasn't made by one of the board sponsors.
