There’s another very good reason to buy AP over other protein brands that hasn’t been mentioned yet. AP is easily better than anything else that I’ve tried, but if it were only equal or even if some other brand were (to quote Arnold) “a few percent better than [AP]”, I would still buy it simply to support Biotest. Think about it: does Optimum Nutrition have a forum like this? Does Labrada give away free advice in Reader Mail or publish great articles every week? Does any other company push the research and development envelope as much as Biotest? The answers are no, obviously not.
There are a few pathetic copycat outfits out there that attempt to compete with Biotest/T-Mag, but that’s all it is: a pathetic copycat attempt. Purchases of AP and other Biotest products allow this forum to stay in operation, and T-Mag to continue publishing the best and most informative stuff in bodybuilding. And for that reason alone I will continue to support them with my hard-earned money. And everyone else who reads this forum (or T-mag) and gets something out of it that they can use in the gym should too.
