Studies on Supplements


#1

I understand that Biotest cannot criticize competitors supplements because of legal issues.

However are there any neutral opinions or studies out there?

THanks

Pubmed

ok thanks, did a quick search but nothing popped up.

have you found studies on specific supplements from companies like GNC, ON (Optimum Nutrition), Champion Nutrition or others on pubmed? Could you send me a link?

Look up the information on the raw ingredients, not the brands. Any "studies" on brand name products will not be on pubmed because they will not be in any medical journal. I can't imagine an academic institution studying Muscle Milk. Looking up "whey isolate" or "forskolin" should bring up some articles.

They don't have/need specific studies due to they are not controlled by the FDA. They can claim pretty much anything they want.
