I live in New Orleans and decided to take yesterday off with a friend to go and checkout the GNC Show of Strength. What follows is the report…
I arrived at the New Orleans Convention Center at 10am and bought my ticket for $10 and began to check out the expo floor.
I decided to work the rows of the show consecutively to see who was pushing what supplements and make sure I didn’t miss any booths (or the freebies they were giving away).
There were several interesting supplements I got to try including:
Crystalized Protien - This stuff comes in a Crystal form and tastes like cherry pop-rocks. I’m not sure if this will be any good or not, but I thought it tasted decent.
Effervescent Vitamins - These are supposed to be absorbed at a rate of 80% vs. normal pill vitamins that they claim are only absorbed at a rate of 20%. I don’t know if I believe this or not, they also had a very limited number of vitamins in the formula. They included - Vitamin C, Thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacinamide, Pantothenic Acid, Pyrodoxine, Cyanocobalamin, Biotin, Calcium, Folic Acid.
Creatine Gel - You are supposed to take this stuff right before you go and work out for an energy boost and a more intense workout (again, I don’t know if I really believe this)
A Non-Ando Androgenic Suspension - This stuff “they claim” is better than any Andro product. Here is what is in it : Cissus Quadranfularis, Cyanotis Vaga Extract, Kre-Alkalyn (This is their own stuff), Mucuna Pruriens Extract, Mumie Extract (Shilajit), Taurine, Trans-Ferulic Acid, Vandium Citrate, Niacinamide, Vitamin B-12, Zinc.
There were also some companies there I had never heard of:
Xenoplex and Scitech (Scitech looked big)
I was unhappy to see that BioTest wasn’t there at all! Pinnacle was there however, they actually seemed to be friendly and knowledgeable about both their own products and BioTest products!
That’s it for my report, if anyone wants any other details, etc. post.
