Supplements – the GOOD, the BAD and the UGLY

 

Sounds like a movie title! And I am sure we are going to see a movie about this one-day. It is one of the biggest money turning industries and one of the shadiest mafia style operations out there. I would go so far as to say it is one of the biggest scams ever pulled on consumers.

 

One thing that is undeniable and proven by science is that the best of the best supplements out there makes less than a 3% contribution to your success in bodybuilding. It has a laughable small contribution for a LOT of money spend. (The key components are – Diet 80% and training +15%)

Thus, why supplement companies have to make such ridiculous fake claims and try and dress them up as facts to lure consumers into the trap of partying with their money. And they know consumers can’t really proof anything because it will take too much money and there are too many variables.

17855546_10155309123973944_8428685470746988949_o

There is not a single supplement out there that comes even close to the claims of its marketing material. Even from the “trusted” and big companies. There simply is no integrity in the supplement industry.

It is all blatant exaggeration coupled with fake “proof” photos which are either stolen or where people are paid to lie. Not a single photo used in the marketing of ANY supplement is ever real. Listen to this…not a single photo is real! They are ALL fake.

 

All these fitness guys with their Instagram posts and YouTube videos showing off the supplements in a subtle or not so subtle way…they all get paid to do this!

 

I personally have, to date, more than a 100 supplement companies (I will list some of more prominent ones at the end of this article) that stole my before and after photo and used it as “proof” with fake stories of how great their supplement is supposed to be working. And there are 100’s of cases similar to mine. If you have a striking before and after photo roaming around on internet, I guarantee you, rather sooner than later that it will start appearing in online supplement advertisements, off course without you even knowing about it.

Or if it is one of the big well-known companies, they will contact you and pay you money for the rights to use your photo with all kinds of fake claims of how you “transformed” with their product.

 

You will eventually have many fake names and fake stories on the internet of how you were supposed to have reached success with this supplement.

 

Attorneys are unwilling to take on these cases because they know that, especially the internet “companies” are more slippery than jellyfish with one front-end company after the other easily disappearing of the radar and popping up under a different name in a different country.

 

Consider this: One of the most widely advertised type supplements are products claiming to increase a man’s testosterone levels (and now I am talking about them all, does not matter which one). Now, if they were so effective even in the smallest way, why would a Doctor/Urologist not prescribe them when treating low testosterone levels in men? Simply because these supplements do not work! None of the information presented in the marketing of such products are legitimate. All are either false or half-truths. None of the science experiments they quote are legitimate and objectively verified. All is simply well-dressed up lies and half-truths.

This is the exact same case with ALL other supplement marketing campaigns. And the uneducated population is standing queues to buy these supplements believing the lies they are fed.

 

What is even scarier is that a significant slice of these internet supplement companies are actual scams, just to get their hook into your credit card and then the monthly deductions starts! How do they operate? Let’s look at an example…

The following (Delta Prime marketing) is how they typically advertise, abusing platforms like ESPN, well-known magazines (aka MUSLCE & FITNESS) and well known celebreties and photos from many guys who work hard and long to get their muscled bodies…all of whom are completely unaware they are being abused and all who have never used the supplement advertised (you will spot me also in there!). No one has given permission.

The above is an example of not just a fake product but an actual scam. They just want access to your credit card. After that you will have the “pleasure” of rather large recurring monthly deductions from your credit card which you will not be able to stop unless you cancel your card.

Another scary aspect of some supplements, is dangerously raised liver values and strain on kidneys. If you have raised liver values this is about the first thing your health care provider will ask you “Are you using bodybuilding supplements?”. So please take care what you put into your body. Many of these supplements have unverified contents.

 

Even the few supplements which have legitimate science behind them, makes but a very small difference. That difference is less than 3% at best. The supplements with solid science behind them are: Creatine, Whey Protein, BCAA and L-Glutamine. Sure, there might be new ones emerging in future that is backed by real legitimate science studies but be very careful what to trust and believe. The science quoted in marketing campaigns are nearly always disinformation or half-truths and not legitimate science at all. You need to verify the science from medical journals and independent science studies.

These are the reasons why I am so outspoken regarding bodybuilding supplements. Believe me I could have made a lot of money pushing brands and supplements by now! I had even companies trying to bribe me with money to keep me quiet about their products. We are made to believe supplements are the magic solution, but the truth is, it is lies and deceit carefully designed to simply get our money. Make your choices very careful.

 

Your focus in your bodybuilding goal must be your diet and your training. This is where more than 90% of your bodybuilding success lies. Supplements is what it says, “supplemental” and makes a very small difference, or none at all for most.

 

Considering the above and applying some wisdom, your budget allocation for transforming your body should be as follows:

  • 80% budget should be allocated towards ensuring you have the necessary diet food (and containers, food scales, etc.) available to ensure your diet is effective in place.
  • 15% of your budget should be allocated to gym fee’s and gym training clothes/attire.
  • Less than 5% of your budget should be allocated towards supplements because it cannot make a bigger difference than 5% (probably not more than 3%) in your success.

 

But off course having the correct system in place is critical otherwise you will continue wasting money and bumping your head without reaching any significant success. I have the complete system that I follow, available for clients. I customise it for their goals, body type, shape and current condition. It is a very extensive system which ensures EVERYTHING is correctly in place thus preventing all the common mistakes newbies in bodybuilding make.

As mentioned earlier in the article, here is just some of the more prominent scam and fake supplements out there that use fake photos and fake stories to try and proof their supplements. My photos (any other people’s) have been used and abused multiple times by all of them and the list is ever growing:

  • AMINO PRIME
  • APEX T

Click here to watch video “Supplement syndicate exposed”

A massive bodybuilding supplement syndicate scam exposed.

This syndicate operates with more than 30 products which are all prominently marketed internationally exclusively via the web.

All the marketing is done by the same front end company who uses the same recipe over and over – stolen before and after photos are used as “proof” and they are accompanied by fake testimonials to “support” the stolen photos. All these products are close to worthless since ingredients are unverified and proof of its effectives can only be obtained through theft and lies.

But these companies have but one aim and that is NOT to sell their product. The product is just a means by which they get their hooks into your credit card. Clients are lured by fantastical claims like 14 day or 1 month complete body transformations and “Free Trials”. But the moment a client is signed-up, these scammers have complete access to the client’s credit card.

The “FREE TRIAL” is all of a sudden a recurring monthly deduction from the client’s credit card – indefinitely! Anyone trying to enquire is just told that there was fine print that the client should have read. There is no way the client can cancel or get out of this “contract”. The only way to stop the “agreement” is for the client to cancel his/her credit card and to re-apply at the bank for a new one.

Thousands upon thousands of people have been caught in this syndicate credit card theft scam.

Here is a growing list of products that now forms part of this syndicate:    

  1. ALPHA FUEL X
  2. ANABOL X1
  3. AMINO PRIME
  4. APEX T
  5. APEX IP
  6. BIO MUSCLE XR
  7. CRAZYBULK WINSITROL
  8. ELITE TEST 360
  9. HGH XL
  10. LIFEFORCE ENERGY
  11. LIFEFORCE T-2000
  12. NITRO FOCUS N03
  13. NITRIC MAX MUSCLE
  14. NIWALI TESTO BOOST
  15. NUTRAGENTEX
  16. NUTRA TESTERONE
  17. POWER NO2 MAX
  18. PROMAX PUMP
  19. SUPER TEST-O-BOOST
  20. T-ADVANCE
  21. TESTO XL
  22. TESTERONE XL
  23. T-REX MUSCLE
  24. TESTO XTRM
  25. TRIG X2
  26. ULTRAMAX BOOSTER
  27. XFORCE NO2
  28. XTREME NO
  29. XENGTH X1
  30. 1285 MUSCLE

Another product which operates on stolen photos and fake testimonials (but does not form part of above syndicate) is: Nutrex’s Lipo-6 Black Ultra Concentrate

 

The following photo (of me) is probably the most scammed photo ever used. It is stolen and used by the listed companies/products.

In my fake “testimonial” I’ve had now about 30 different names!

50th birthday studio COVER


In this article I will give you some critical pointers on how to smell a fake/scam product from a mile away.

 

You need to understand the mindset of these scammers.

1. They want as much money from you as possible.

2. The never want to be in a situation where they meet you face to face. They only use faceless environments to deal with clients – like the internet.

3. You struggle to get information on the ingredients of the product, they do NOT want you to know the truth.

 

Let’s look at – They want as much money from you as possible

They have this incredibly good sounding deals like “get your first bottle free”.  But after that first bottle arrived, you will just see charges getting deducted from your credit card, month after month. The only way to stop this is to literally stop your credit card and get a new one.

To try to stop the monthly supply of the products is close to impossible and even if you stop the delivery of the product, the deductions continue.

According to you, you have only ordered the first “free” product but alas now you are all of a sudden in a fixed recurring contract.

 

Let’s look at – They only use a faceless environment

The only medium these products are advertised through is the internet. If you cannot find this item on the shelve of your local supplement store, do NOT buy it! There is a REASON these people only deal through internet. They want to stay faceless because they are devoid of all integrity in their marketing campaigns of these products. They steal photos and make up fake stories for their marketing campaigns – I know what I am talking about, I have already busted 8 of these fake companies that have stolen my transformation photo and made up a fake stories to advertise their products. And that is just me…ALL of the transformation and other photos used are fakes and stolen as well as all the supporting “proof” stories.  They have no other choice to do this because the product they are selling CANNOT produce the claimed results and thus they do not have any proof of the claimed results.

The internet offer them a safe environment and barrier so they do not have to face their clients. They are not stupid, all of them have “front” companies they create to deal with the product distribution and marketing just to make sure that if one ever does try to make a case against them, it is very easy for them to get out off the lawsuite,  because they just blame it on the “front” marketing company which is even more difficult to trace than themselves. These “front” marketing companies has very short lifespans, typically only a few months, before they disappear and a new one is created, making the old one close to impossible to trace, literally just like a deleted webpage.

Typical marketing campaigns for these products proclaim awe-inspiring transformations within a few weeks (typically range 2 to 4 weeks). Many times it states that this is done with the product without having to diet or do any exercise. Crazy claims that not even anabolic steroids or Growth Hormone can come close too! Again, this is why they can ONLY work from a faceless environment. Imagine the queues of scammed clients lining up who experienced NO CHANGE in the 4 weeks whatsoever. They did loose, but only their money and until they cancel their credit card will keep loosing their monthly month after month.

 

Let’s look at –  You struggle to get info on the ingredients of the product.

All the “wonderful” write-ups and advertising that surrounds these products has almost no specific info on the actual ingredients of the product but just vague descriptions and references. There is a very important reason for this, because if people knew the ingredients and google it, they will very quickly see that this products cannot produce the claimed results. These products have no mystical ingredients but plain well-known ingredients that you will find at any health store or supplement store. The marketing companies of the products would like you to believe that the products contain very special and mystical stuff and that is why they omit 90% of the time the ingredients in the marketing advertisement. Being a scam product the chances is also very (!) high that it does not nearly contain what the label states.

These companies are not interested in satisfied clients, but their ONLY objective is to hook into the clients credit cards with a irreversible debit order system.

 

If it sounds too good to be true, it IS too good to be true – ALWAYS!

So the three main criteria you must use to know if it is a scam/fake product, is:

1. Is it only available through internet? [if yes – stay way!]

2. Is the ingredients listed in detail?  [if not – stay away!]

3. Does it sound too good to be true? [if yes – stay away!]

 

Examples: Niwali TestoBoost, 1285 Muscle, Trig X2, XTreme No, TestoRush, AminoPrime, and many, many more…

 

You will say “But this means, that a lot of the internet-only bodybuilding supplement products are fakes/scams?” YES IT IS..all of them.

 

Know this, NO (!) reputable company that have a solid product worth it’s weight will only deal through internet.

They want fixed distribution channels with trained people to sell their product and offer support and info to clients.

 

I hope this short article help you to make a more informed decision and to stay clear from all these fake and scam products.

They suck the money from people and it is very (!) difficult to sue them and the word “integrity” is not in their vocabulary.

For the 2nd time I am being abused by high profile international marketing material with fake products.

The companies promoting these products stole my photos (see my pic at bottom of advert) and again they write up a fake story as if I told it. Be very wary everyone, these products are FAKED (1285 MUSCLE and TRIG X2) and does NOT work.

They have to steal photos and write fake stories to try and prove a unprovable point.

Here is the original marketing article with STOLEN photos and FAKE MADE UP story (all utter lies – stay clear from these products):

SPECIAL REPORT: Lean Muscle in a Bottle? Get 6 Pack Abs in Just 1 Month With These 2 Muscle Supplements That Celebrities Use.

This report was created by Men’s Health to expose the truth behind a very weird diet

Staff reporter Bryan Stevens investigates a weird muscle solution that is quickly gaining popularity around the world. Read his shocking findings to building incredible muscle mass in less than 1 month.

(Men’s Health) – For the past few months our readers have been going crazy over two new free products that are helping men lose fat and get ripped in less than a month. Even celebrities like Daniel Craig and Gerard Butler have lost a ton of body fat and added an insane amount of muscle using these two products.

These products are clinically proven to flush out the toxins in your body, melt away body fat and pack on tons of muscle. It’s a deadly combo for getting insanely ripped. In this article, we’ll tell you exactly why these products work and why they warrant a special report.

We know that putting on muscle often feels like an impossible challenge. At Men’s Health, we’ve evaluated numerous fad muscle programs and it seems like everything is expensive and nothing really works. The reason why most programs fail is because they impose unrealistic restrictions on your daily life. Some tell you to eat tons of protein while others emphasize the importance of carbohydrates. In either case, you have to make drastic changes to your regular diet. In this special report, we take an in-depth look at a new and promising trend that we think is easy to use and yields real results.

The product we’re talking about is 1285 Muscle. You may have seen this supplement in the news or on TV as the completely safe and powerful “secret” used by celebrities and body builders around the world. Today, we are leaking their secret and teaching you how to get muscular celebrity bodies for free. In this special report, you’ll learn about these two promising new products, 1285 Muscle and Trig X2.

Gerard Butler uses muscle supplements like 1285 Muscle and Trig X2 to lose fat fast, while gaining extreme muscle.

1285 Muscle’s high anti-oxidant content and powerful strength gaining properties make it a muscle-building machine. If you’re feeling skeptical right now, you’re not alone. When we first learned about this fat-burning/muscle-building combo our fad radar went off right away.

Despite our doubts about 1285 Muscle, the countless success stories reported worldwide made us take a second look at this trend. What particularly interested us was the fact that these people saw results without having to significantly change their lifestyles or eating habits. Combine 1285 Muscle with Trig X2 and you’ve created an automatic muscle building machine.

Jack Evans from London reported that he lost fat and gained 14 lbs of muscle in just 5 weeks using only the 1285 Muscle and combo muscle diet.

On his blog he wrote,

“I couldn’t believe how easy it was. I didn’t have to change my diet or my daily routine at all. I just took two pills a day and the fat melted off like butter and I literally got shredded. I now have muscles that I didn’t even know existed. I even have a 6-pack now, which is the best part. The girls love it”

At Men’s Health, we decided to try the 1285 Muscle and Trig X2 diet for ourselves. For the test, I wanted to be the guinea pig because I was training to be in a fitness competition and needed to slim down and gain many pounds of muscle. To try out the 1285 Muscle and Trig X2 I decided to get a free trial of 1285 Muscle. Although there are many muscle supplement offers available, I chose this site because they are one of the most credible and trustworthy suppliers on the market. While most 1285 Muscle products use lower concentrations of the strength gaining extract, this supplier has one of the concentrated and purest products on the market. Everyone at Men’s Health agreed that this product would give me the best results for my test.

1285 Muscle & Trig X2 have been featured in ESPN magazine highlighting olympic athletes performance and muscle gains.

The free trial bottle of 1285 Muscle was delivered in a few days from ordering and with surprisingly inexpensive shipping. 1285 Muscle is one of the most concentrated and purest muscle building products on the market. It was our shared opinion that this would give me the most accurate results for my test.

1285 Muscle has been clinically proven to:

(This is the first step in the process. This one is the hemo-dilator that builds lean muscle. It’s completely legal, safe, and has none of the bad steroid-like side effects.)

  • Enhance athletic performance and strength
  • Pump more blood into muscles by expanding veins and capillaries
  • Deliver nutrients to muscles at a faster rate, which quickly builds lean, solid mass
  • Give muscles more definition and size
  • Have positive sexual side effects (I’m not even kidding. my favorite muscle seems bigger too. Probably from the expanded blood vessels)

Although we were pretty skeptical, we wanted to find out for ourselves if the supplements could do everything it claimed. Most of the success stories we heard about combined 1285 Muscle with an additional amino acid supplement to achieve maximum muscle goals. The idea is that the Trig X2 will help you lose most of the weight and gain energy while the amino acid supplement will take off the hard to lose fat and allow your body to burn calories more efficiently. After further research, we chose to test Trig X2 as our secondary supplement.

Trig X2 has been clinically proven to:

(This is the fat burner and detoxifier. Now this is the key! Taking 1285 Muscle in the morning and Trig X2 later on really sped up my shred.)

  • Increase the number of calories burned
  • Fights free radical damage to muscles
  • Have higher antioxidant levels than pomegranates and blueberries
  • Increase energy and fight fatigue
  • Burn calories even at rest
  • Get rid of bloated “puffy” look
  • Boost metabolism
  • Clean out/detox colon which leads to serious weight loss and increase energy
  • Help give muscles shape and definition

Both 1285 Muscle and Trig X2 arrived within 4 days of having placed my order online for the free trials and were inexpensive to ship.
To test out the product, I took one 1285 Muscle pill every morning and one Trig X2 pill every evening for 4 weeks.

  1. Take one 1285 Muscle pill per day (in the morning)
  2. Take one Trig X2 pill per day (in the evening)
These Were My Results – 15 lbs of Muscle In Just 1 MonthWeek One:After 1 week on the new routine, I was surprised by how fast and dramatic the effects were. My energy level was up and I wasn’t as hungry as I usually was. This is a welcomed side effect of 1285 Muscle and its power to curb appetite. I honestly felt fantastic and best of all, I didn’t have to change anything about my daily routine.On Day 7, I got on the scale (this new digital scale that measures fat and muscle composition) and couldn’t believe my eyes–I had gained 2.5 lbs in muscle mass. But still I wasn’t completely convinced. They say that in the beginning of some muscle programs, you lose a lot of water weight and gain a lot of muscle. I wanted to see if I would still gain this much muscle in the upcoming weeks. But it sure was looking up! I now weighed under 155 pounds for the first time in years!Week Two:After 2 weeks of using both supplements I had more energy and was sleeping more soundly than ever. I wasn’t waking up in the middle of the night or tossing and turning because my body was able to relax (a result of the supplements’ detoxifying properties, I think). I also managed to lose another 7 pounds of fat, putting me at an unbelievable 150 lbs in just 2 weeks. I could also feel a 6-pack coming through, which my girlfriend loved. Hell yeah!At this point I started to put more faith in these muscle products as more than just a gimmick.Week Three:After 3 weeks, all my doubtsandskepticisms had vanished! I had gained 12.5 lbs of pure muscle and had lost 8 pounds of fat. All the fat on the sides of my stomachwerecompletely gone. My stomach was so defined I finally had a 6-pack! These products are just amazing. I lost a ton of fat and the muscle gains are UNREAL.I still had a lot of energy as well. Usually around the third week of other diets you tend to run out of steam. But with 1285 Muscle and Trig X2 my energy levels didn’t dip. Instead, they remained steady throughout the day! I even noticed that my stomach was digesting food better, no bloating or embarrassing gas after I ate.Week Four:After the fourth week, I was completely shocked by my final results. I gained an unbelievable 16 lbs of muscle mass since starting the 1285 Muscle and Trig X2 routine! Everyone at Men’s Health wants to try the diet now. In week 4 I lost 7 more lbs of fat on top of the 16 lbs of muscle I had gained. I was ready and confident for the fitness competition. I am definitely going to continue taking 1285 Muscle because it produces consistent, amazing results and has so many other muscle building compounds which help with muscle memory and maintaining mass.


I couldn’t be any happier with the results.
I gained 16 lbs of muscle in 4 weeks . No Special Diet, No Intense Exercise.

b4_after_2

I gained 16 lbs of muscle in 4 weeks. No Special Diet, No Intense Exercise.

In conclusion, if you want to lose fat and gain muscle mass but are doubtful about the effects of this routine, you need to try it for yourself. From my own experiment for Men’s Health, we can tell you that the results are real. We at Men’s Health had our own doubts initially, but we were quickly turned into believers. After conducting our own studies, we are also pleased to see that people are really finding success with this diet.
You can reach your weight loss goals with the 1285 Muscle and Trig X2 combo diet,
