    Guys bsn is being sued for false supplement facts.
    If this is true how do they won so many awards in bb.com?????

  2. The awards come from members voting. The products get nominated based on sales. Endless cycle of idiocy.
    There's already a thread or 2 on this topic, BTW.

    ops, sorry I havent saw them...

  4. I worked part time for GNC a while back. My RSD was tight with an MHP rep...MHP took some of BSN's products like NO xplode and Cellmass, tested them and basically found nothing but sugar and caffeine

    CM too, right?

    We've pretty much found out that there is no such thing as 'CEM3 technology.'

    It's a shame that a company could be so deceitful.

  6. This could be the end of bsn.
    I hope this serve as an example to all the other brands.

  7. I've bought a few tubs of NO-Xplode here and there, and actually thought of stocking up on that along with some Syntha-6 and Cell Mass at some point. I'm not so sure after this.

    I hope this is a lesson learned to BSN. They owe all of us who've given them business.

    This could only make you wonder about some of the other supplement brands out there. Not to mention any names. *Ahem* Muscle-Tech.

    Sadly, it will not. As long as companies do not have to prove their ingredient profiles, it will continue. The whole CEM3 Technology thing was a farse, IMHO, to begin with. Hell, it's cheaper to buy a bottle of CEE and stack it with caffiene pills - the end user result is the same. Oh, and add a "pump supplement to the mix. Still, after buying those three things, you're saving money and it will last longer.

    BSN should start refunding people their money - but as I type this, it is still being sold. Retailers need to get this information and pull the products in question. If they dont, they're just as responsible for pushing bunk products at an outrages price.

    yea it does make it hard. Gotta shop well and know the company well enough to trust them. somehow i think muscletech is mostly honest with their ingredients. they just have a very solid marketing approach and charge 10,0000000 time what it should cost because their supplement bottles look like trophies.

  10. I might take a little walk around the mall and stop by GNC. I'll start random discussion with somebody working there and find out if they've heard about this yet. If not, then I'll just bring them up to date.

    they are only trained to know the labels and be able to tell you whey it will work for you (what i mean by that is why you should buy it)...most of the employees dont have a technical understanding. should be good for some laughs...

  12. no-xplode is the proof that the placebo effect does exist...

    most supplements are. not to say the supposed ingredients dont work, but people are either misdirected as to how to use it and/or a lot of things are under dosed and overpriced.

    I once got into an argument with a local GNC employee after she tried to sell me NO2 Black and I kindly told her no thank you, and that I didn't see the point in NO products. That raised some hell, and she began explaining to me, in her infinite scientific knowledge, that, "Well, come on. Muscles, you know, grow when they tear. So NO makes more blood go through your muscles, so they tear more."


    *sigh*..."can I just have my protein?"

    yeah and I was almost banned from bb forum because I said that aplodan didn't worked when I tried it...

  16. There should be an independant third party who test supplements and reports what they find. Sort of a "consumer reports" for supps.
    It's hard to concentrate when I can hear your thoughts.

    well..im sitting here right now eating lots of protein and probably about to tear in the sense of ripping ass, and i can tell you NO products at GNC have not contributed to my current physique.

  18. i'm also an ex-GNC employee and concur with what pudz is sayin here. from personal experience trying dozens of fancy smancy creatine and NO products, i've found the vast majority generally fail to accomplish what they claim to do. that is to say, they're all exorbitantly overpriced crap. any smart employee at GNC will only try to play off the "positive" sides of each product, because their one main objective is to sell you what GNC is marketing. the more they sell, the more $$$ they make in commissions. so if you were a GNC employee tryin to make the most from your job, why would you wanna sacrifice your hard-earned commissions and advise customers not to buy from these bunk companies?

  19. I'd be welling to bet that a good 8 out of 10 consumers who buy these products first and foremost have no sense of diet whatsoever, and secondly don't even really train like they should to begin with. Otherwise placebo could be attributed to any gains if any made from these products.

    i spoke to one customer who used Methyl Test for a year straight! give or take. when he came it, he had no size, and gyno. I was like hmmm... i felt bad so i took a few minutes and shared some of my knowledge with him. Turns out I got him to spend more money of health supplements and vitamins than he would have on the performance crap.

  21. I could never work at GNC. I'm sure you get store discounts, which are always nice, but I wouldn't be able to bullsh!t my customers and try convincing them to buy overpriced, some being worthless, products. Especially when I myself have been conned into trying such products, and ended up wasting my money and gaining nothing using the products in the gym.

  22. True i hate gnc for that reason.

    damn bro you are a post-a-holic.in less than a month 400 posts!

    Bull****.

    I've used a couple tubs, and it provides the best, cleanest energy I've experienced, and good pumps and endurance too.

    I'm well-versed in the effects of NoDoz and Gatorade when taken pre-workout, and they feel nothing like No-Xplode.

    Shove that placebo in your crack pipe and smoke it. You're the one experiencing a placebo effect: someone puts it out there that a large company's well known and over-hyped product sucks, and everyone jumps on the bashing bandwagon. That's placebo for ya!

    That probably could've been said a little better.
