I think if this tread of supplement bashing will lead to FDA testing. Thus making everything cost more so I doubt it will happen.
@j13 - it’s funny how things work like that. People over dose on the prescription medication all the time. For instance your example of acetaminophen (Tylenol). Not prescription in this case but anyone can self medicate and potentially harm themselves without proper counseling.
There is a women that comes to the gym and always asks if we have ephedrine in. She buys by two bottles (50 tablets @ 8mg/tab) that last her about 7 days. It’s recommended 1 tablet every six to eight hours. So if you think about it she should only be taking about 3 tablets/24 hours if dosing every eight hours. But 100 tablets/7 days = 14.28 tablets/day OR 14 tablets/day. So that comes out to be 4.67x the recommended amount.
People just do not know how to comply to medicating/supplement recommendations and thus supplements get bad rep for hurting people. The only reason it hurts someone is that they are using to much!
Double the amount doesn’t mean double the results!
