I think about how much money I wasted trying to save a few bucks when I was first using supplements on a regular basis. In hind site, there were a lot of things I could have done better, but as I've pointed out before, I only started competing in bodybuilding the last three years (I'm 38), and in those years, as I've relied more and more on supplements for recovery and just keeping my body in optimal working order, I've made LBM gains that most people would be happy to make in their 20's.
Look at it this way,.. you've got one company, that offers your money back if not happy with any first time product purchase, doesn't advertise, and yet seems to be making well enough of a profit to remain in business for over a decade, continually pushing the envelop on new products, picking the minds of top coaches and doctors for the next big thing... and did I mention, doesn't advertise yet maintains a very steady stream of clients? -lol.
On the other hand, you've got a zillion companies all turning out the same types of products, always trying to undercut their production costs, spending more money on paying top pros to SAY that they use their products than on developing new innovations, and constantly biting off each others' ads and slogans.
I don't even look at supplement ads anymore. I figure anything new is worthwhile, I'll hear about it on here.
