The Nutrition and Supplement Industry Police

Share This:

There are shady characters in every industry, but it’s seemingly within the nutrition and supplement industry where the shadiest of shady characters reside.

Note: check out FREE offer at bottom of this post.

How else to explain an industry where (celebrity) doctors cut their ties to integrity and shill the miraculous fat loss properties of Raspberry ketones, or where some of the product descriptions resemble that of a science-fiction movie?

Like this one for example:

“The World’s strongest vaso-anabolic psychoactive experience.   Our secret cellular volumizing formula is patented to nanomolecularize your vascular expanders.”

For those scratching their heads, in supplement speak, I’m pretty sure “nanomolecularize” means you’ll cause an earthquake when you flex your pecs and/or you’ll be able to fly.

Or, maybe it just means you’ll end up with explosive diarrhea.  I don’t know, something will happen.

Whatever the case may be, now, more than ever, with all the varying pills, powders, and diets being “sold” to us as the next great thing, we need someone we can trust to cut through the BS and help filter through the phony facade.

We need someone to serve as the “shadiness police.”

Thankfully, Examine.com has being serving that role for the past FIVE years.

Examine.com Turns 5 (and they’re giving away free shit. Well, kinda)

Sol Orwell, Kamal Patel, and the rest of the Examine.com team have built an amazing resource; one that is hands-down THE most extensive, thorough, and UN-BIASED tool at our disposal as fitness/health professionals (and people who are generally more curious and proactive with their health information) to better educate ourselves and our clients/athletes on the topic of nutrition and supplementation.

If one of my clients or athletes walks in and asks my opinion on Paleo, creatine, vitamin D, caffeine, or whether or not Deer Antler Root dipped in Unicorn tears harvested from a remote mountain range in Ministereth is worth trying….I should be able to answer them to the best of my ability.

However, if I ever get stumped – which does happen – I can gather all the information I’d ever need from Examine.com. And I know it’ll be the most recent, relevant, and scientifically peer-reviewed information out there.

To celebrate their FIVE-YEAR anniversary, Examine.com has placed a number of their most popular resources on sale:

Supplement-Goals Reference: From $49 –> $29

Stack Guides: Individual go from $49 –> $35, and the full package (17 guides) from $149 –> $119

Examine.com Research Digest: $29.99/mo –> $24.99/mo

**The sale only lasts until THURSDAY (3/17) at midnight.**

HOLD ON: Get Your FREE TG Special Edition Research Digest: Probiotics

The guys were kind enough to put together this SPECIAL EDITION Research Digest on probiotics for me to share with my readership.

Gut health is important, and I find this topic fascinating. Some find probiotics (prebiotics) useful and worth the investment, while others don’t. Find out for yourself whether or not they’re a good fit in your daily diet.

Free is free. No obligations.

Just go HERE, and you can nerd out all you want.

Enjoy!

    Awesome thanks for the resource! I generally have to weed through Informed Choice, NSF, and USP to try and see how supplements are holding up. It's such a pain in the ass that supplements aren't regulated so you never know if any of it is worth it's weight in powder. And supplement questions are almost always the most popular ones I tend to get. And usually if it's a brand new supplement I usually tell my clients just to wait on it and see how it does on the market. Anyway, thanks again.

    "If one of my clients or athletes walks in and asks my opinion on Paleo, creatine, vitamin D, caffeine, or whether or not Deer Antler Root dipped in Unicorn tears harvested from a remote mountain range in Ministereth is worth trying….I should be able to answer them to the best of my ability." I literally laughed out loud at length when I read that. Anyhow, just wanted to say thanks for the post. I actually didn't know about Examine.com I'm not a fan of any supplements outside of protein and creatine but it's nice to have a resource to examine the ones that I am curious about. I'm not sure yet about taking probiotics unless your gut bacteria has just been destroyed by a course of overprescribed antibiotics, but gut bacteria are definitely something worth learning more about. Thanks Tony, -Mitch

      I was pretty proud of myself for that line.....;o) And, happy to know I was able to point you in the direction of Examine.com. I trust them implicitly. I think you'll feel the same Mitch.
