Workout Supplement Review (LABEL LIES)

What’s up guys, Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.COM So not sure if you’re keeping up with the
news, but the New York Times released an article back on February 3rd entitled ‘What’s in those supplements’ that sort of
made a big story and it should for a very big reason. You see the New York State Attorney General
went in a purchased herbal supplements from four big retail outlets, Walmart, Walgreens,
Target and GNC. And guess what they found? They found nothing,
seriously they found nothing. Because they didn’t find any of the active
ingredients in these formulas. Instead they found things like ground up houseplants,
rice fillers even christmas decorations. They had some spruce that was used for christmas
decorations that someone ground up and threw in these formulas. That’s not what you should be getting if you
go to a trusted retail outlet like Walgreens, Target, Walmart or GNC. But you know what, the target here were these
four retail stores. And I’ve got to tell you, in the past I’ve actually kind of, targeted
these stores and said that, ‘If you’re a supplement store and you don’t
stock your supplement store with people that are knowledgeable about the product, then
you’re not being a responsible brand. You’re not being a responsible store. In this
case, these are major retailers. Ok, especially the Walmart, Walgreens and Target. They’ve got so many things, they can’t be
experts in everything. At some point, as the consumer, you have to be able to trust the
brand, ok. And in this case, these brands are no longer
trustworthy. And sadly I can say that, these brands are not alone. You see the standards here for supplementations
are not where it needs to be. We know that FDA does not step in here and tell you what
you should and shouldn’t take. They don’t even regulate what you should and
shouldn’t take. They only step in if something becomes dangerous. And I’ve talked about, many years ago, the
dangers of certain supplement ingredients like 1-3 Dimethyl Dialamine, that they had
to eventually step in with because people were dying. They don’t step in until it’s too late. We’ve also heard about, more recently, some
other supplement brands that have fallen by the wayside because of the things that they’ve chosen
to put into their formulas, that wound up being dangerous. If we have to sit here and worry about whether
or not the things that we’re taking are going to kill us? Then we’re not in a very powerful position
as consumers when it comes to taking supplements. And I can tell you this, here’s the scary
part. These ingredients right here, these herbal ingredients, as a supplement manufacturer
myself, this is the cheap shit. This is the stuff
that doesn’t cost that much. They’re skipping out on these things, what about when you start
to get to the Protein Supplements. There’s no way your Protein Supplement would
ever be cheap. Protein is not cheap. High Grade, High Quality Protein is not cheap,
as a bulk ingredient. Doesn’t matter how much of it you buy, it’s not cheap. So if your supplements are cheap and you’re
finding Protein cheap, look elsewhere. Because you’re going to run into the same situation
that’s happening here. And there is no regulation about the quality
of those supplements that’s going into those bottles. We on the other hand here at ATHLEANRX, and
this is not a commercial guys. Whoever says it’s a commercial, offer his products, Don’t
buy my stuff. Do Not Buy My Stuff! I just want to illustrate here, that as someone
who is experienced in this industry, who has seen some of the scary things, you should see how much we go through, just
to get our supplements to the part where we put our label around the bottle. Because we actually have our supplements tested
as food products. And by going down the whole food product route, now we become susceptible
to FDA involvement. So we have to make sure that what’s on that
label matches up as a food product. Not a supplement. If it’s just a supplement product, FDA doesn’t
get involved. If it’s a food product, FDA wants to know. We make sure that everything we put on our
labels matches up with what we say is in our bottles. And sadly, that puts us in another level,
that puts in another category. And it shouldn’t. It shouldn’t. Everybody
should be doing that. If you put what’s on the bottle, it should be in the bottle. See you guys this stuff kind of just gets
me, you know, riled up, as I said. And it’s not the fact that, oh we do it right
and they do it wrong, NO. We do it right and everybody else should do it right. Where is this even an option of taking the
wrong road when you’re talking about things that people are put in their bodies. So guys again, if you haven’t seen it, it’s
not all that long ago, go take a look at it. And I’m not faulting these retailers, like
I said, there’s too much that they have to manage to be experts in everything. But you have to be the expert. You have to
rely on brands you trust, not retail outlets that you trust. I trust Walgreens, I go in there all the time.
Whenever I need a prescription that’s where I go. But you can’t be responsible for trusting
everything they put out, you have to know your brands. And if you trust ATHLEANRX, buy it. If you don’t trust me, if you don’t trust
our brands, don’t buy it. If you trust someone else, go buy their stuff. But at least be aware of what’s going on. Alright guys, a little bit of a rant here
but I hope you found it helpful. In the meantime, if you found this eye opening,
if you found it a little bit aggravating, leave your comments below guys, let me know, I want to rant along with you. And if you want more videos make sure and
subscribe and I’ll be back here again in just a couple days
with some more stuff. Alright guys, see you later.
