What Are Prohormones and Are They Still Around?

If you hadn’t heard of them yet, Prohormones were once seen as the future of supplements. However, if you were to ask around about them now, you would hear more about the drawbacks of using a prohormone than the benefits. Why did everyone’s attitude towards these once highly sought after items change? It seems like such a great idea, to use parts of steroids that were scrapped to create new Frankenstein-like supplements, right? Wait, yes you read that right, I did just write out scrapped parts because, essentially, that’s what prohormones are. Without knowing this, most everyone was under the impression that these were a safer choice, when compared to using steroids.

What is the Future of Prohormones?

In 2014, the majority did not feel that way, as these products were considered far too dangerous for human use, scary, right? There was a large report that documented just how risky these little capsules were to use. If you missed out on the window in which prohormones were available, consider yourself lucky. I remember trying one of these, at the request of my older brother and I so regret it. Within a couple of days, I had pain that would shoot up my sides and I stopped taking it immediately. I came up with a lie, telling him my wife freaked out when she saw them but the truth was that I didn’t want to put myself through the physical pain anymore. I thought that I pulled a side muscle, that’s how bad the pain was. It wasn’t until I looked around online that I found that this condition was normal, at least as normal as that kind of pain can be, I suppose.

If you were to look around now, you won’t find any actual prohormones (or at least, you shouldn’t) but companies have found ways to make alternatives. With these alternate products, most are hit and miss. It’s an odd thing to use a supplement that aims to do what they big name prohormones did, without them ever being allowed to have the same ingredients. As for what the future holds, the outlook for prohormones doesn’t appear to be a good one. I don’t honestly believe that were going to see some rebirth of these supplements, like some do. After dealing with five days of pain, where I could barely sleep, I would have to say good riddance to the old days where prohormones were thought to be the new king of the supplement world.

Knowing Your Limits with Vitamin C

Did you slip, forgetting when the last time you just took that orange vitamin C chewable? You’re not alone, especially when I start feeling the slightest hint of sickness, I will use that wonderful vitamin from oranges like candy, which is wrong. If you haven’t kept up on our daily recommendations for nutrients, like Vitamin C, you’ll need to learn the guidelines. Around 120 mg is the upper limit of what adults really need to consume, in the way of vitamin C consumption. If you have grown up, yet still indulge on snack foods made for children, you’ll know that many of these pouches contain 100% of the daily vitamin C value, per pouch! Have you ever gotten on the big box of fruit snacks, ripped open a new bag, and stopped at just one?

If you are watching the fruits and vegetables you eat, that could easily add a notch or two on your intake of the orangessubject vitamin. As they often will, rumors that started will grow out of control fast, if not distinguished. Saying that too much vitamin C can start to deplete other vitamins and minerals, with mixed opinions on any real findings. A lighter hearted instance of this rumor (and one with science behind it) says that your body can only process so much vitamin C at once, meaning that if you were to get crazy and take a lot of this vitamin, most would end up expelled. As you begin to hear about the side effects of overdoing the eating of vitamin C, it isn’t all something that you can wish away.

Painful stomach cramps that can become debilitating can happen if you aren’t watching your intake. While not everyone fully believes that vitamin C will be able to stop any and all sicknesses (I’m still not so sure but want to think it’s true), you can reverse those benefits, by taking an overabundance of vitamin C. It doesn’t just stop with high doses of vitamin c adding new health problems, it can also counter effects whatever medicines you’re required to take. As someone who can’t survive his morning, without a big glass of orange juice, I have to take it easy with my supplements. With the fruit I eat, combined with my morning orange juice, I’m one wrong meal away from being above the upper limit of safe vitamin c intake, I’ll just leave it at that. This is all, in no way, me trying to demonize any vitamin, as long as readers are well-informed and safe, I’m a happy man.

There are rare situations, in which an abnormal quantity of daily vitamin C usage would be appropriate but would be ineffective to others. At the far end of the spectrum, those who are well beyond any upper limit (think in the thousands of milligrams) would face serious medical consequences. Not just ending at mildly discomforting stomach cramps, you’ll see a serious risk of developing kidney stones. As someone who drank too much soda throughout his life, without not enough water to flush it out, I have sad experience with the occasional kidney stone. I won’t go into detail that no one wants but passing one of those is painful but one of the most euphoric feelings when it has been passed. The vitamin that is found in citrus fruits is amazing for daily maintaining of your skin, hair, and overall well-being.

Are BPI Protein Snacks Worthy of a Best Moniker?

I’m back again, just fresh from receiving some awesome samples of the new BPI protein bars, thank you very much for sending those over! There are three flavors that I will be taste testing for you today: cookies and cream, apple crumb cake, and smores. BPI has been in business for quite a while, mainly due to the awesome supplements that release. From protein to energy, and everything in between, chances are, if you want more from your hard work, BPI probably has something in store that will meet your goals. Not one to miss out on a common supplement type, they do have a set of protein bars. I began my taste tasting journey with the Apple Crumb Cake flavor. The bar had an odd brown texture, for each flavor I tried, while that color looked good for the apple flavor, it doesn’t make a cookies and cream bar look enticing. Minor nitpick aside, there were actually chunks of apple pie pieces within this bar, helping to add authenticity to the product.

I did notice that I tasted that initial protein bar taste but I’ve had far worst snacks. I would say that this first flavor had notes of apple but it was overwhelmed by the remainder of the bar, it gets a 7/10 from me. Next, the smores flavor was going to be the next one that I would taste. I still noticed that odd brown hue to the entire bar, I would have thought that black would be the best color choice here. With chunks of chocolate and marshmallow within this bar, it really helped to add a sweeter taste. I thought that I detected graham cracker chunks in this product, as well. While slowly narrowing out the lead that the Apple Crumb Cake had, I have to give a slight boost to the rating of the smores flavor, totaling it up to a 7.5/10 rating. Cookies and cream may be one of the most common flavor of protein bar that I always seek out. Since I can remember, I have always loved anything that is flavored to taste like cookies and cream. This final protein bar that I would test did not knock it out of the park, for me. I didn’t find that I needed to go puke or toss this bar in the nearest trashcan but I didn’t really enjoy it.

Which Flavor Should You Be Choosing?

I would call it a flavor that I would choose if I had to, however, if other options were available I would go with either the apple or smores option. BPI is going to continue to bring supplements backed with science, not hype, of that I am completely positive. While I wasn’t head over heels about every flavor of their protein bars that I tried, it doesn’t mean they might not be perfect for you. If you are going to just choose one flavor, I highly advise that you try out the cookies and cream, even the weakest stomachs should be able to find enjoyment there. Again, thank you BPI for sending those bars over, I know this wasn’t based on doing a review but I wanted to write about them, anyways. Have you tried out any of the BPI bars yet? If so, head over to our Facebook to let me know if you liked them or thought they left more to be desired, I’ll be waiting!

New BCAA Called Off the Chain Reviewed

Every now and then, a supplement comes along and has me wondering why did I think of that? I’m speaking about Off the Chain, a new branched chain amino acid product that has a kick! What is this kick that I speak of? With an added boost of caffeine, you can now get a BCAA that actually wakes you up. I’ve seen endless numbers of BCAA’s that have the words more energy, all over their labels. I would say that, 95% of the time, energy from aminos is often underwhelming. Off the Chain wants to correct those weaker amino acid supplements and I think that they’ve come up with a nice innovation. The flavors for this supplement are: pink lemonade, blue raspberry, strawberry kiwi, and rocket pop. If the last flavor that spoke of in the last sentence caught your eye, it could be because it sounded similar to a popsicle that has been around for years.

The red, white, and blue, colored frozen treat has been brought into a supplement! I could only find that two flavors were available for me to try, this stuff must have a big following because it always seems to be sold out. Anyways, the strawberry kiwi and rocket pop were the two taste selections that I was able to get my hands on. Right away, I had to open up the rocket pop container, to assess how close it was to the actual popsicle. To my astonishment, I found that they really went out of their way to replicate the awesome taste that I have grown up with. I can’t believe that it took so long for a BCAA to be mixed with caffeine, this will get a bunch of extra men to try get the amino acids that they need. These acids help to get you in an anabolic state, which is great for your muscles. In the other state, of being catabolic, you will start breaking down any extra meat, including muscle.

After looking around the website of the makers of this product, they also talk about how BCAA’s have been outdated for a while now, a statement that I wholeheartedly agree with. When making my big monthly orders, thinking back, I used to barely spend any time at all in the amino acid section, I never saw the purpose for it, as they all started to run together. Being aware that there is, at least, one company adding some good old caffeine in to the fray and they have my attention. Packed to the brim with almost 1,400 mg of L-Glutamine, you shouldn’t take too long to heal up after your training. Off the Chain is going to be a tough one to categorize but that isn’t a bad thing, props to this company for bringing the world an innovation, not the same repeat just dressed in a different label. I wish that more fitness freaks would get on the wagon of the BCAA supplement.

I’ve seen more scoff at me, when I mix up my intraworkout drink, assured that I’m just wasting my time. My plan is to keep doing what I do, not caring about half-hearted insults and we will see who has more muscle in a couple of months! Here is a bonus afterthought, don’t you find that those who speak the loudest, have the least to say? Off the Chain could be the one amino acid item that could persuade even the most loyal hater!

Helping Someone Open Their Own Nutrition Shop

Wow, I’ve had a busy week and it isn’t Friday yet! Currently, I have been helping my brother-in-law open up his new supplement store. He had known a bit about working out but my phone rang, late Monday night, and I was asked a favor. The owner of this new store was going to need product and had no clue what to get. Putting my mind to the test, I offered to help him out and my brain has been going non-stop. One funny thing that I’ve learned from all of this is how all of the different supplements start to run together. I’ve been putting in more hours at that store, than I have at home, so I had to start dialing it down a little bit. Even when you think that you have seen every single supplement around, you would be surprised, when flipping through catalogs to order from.

There are so many small pieces that go into setting up a business, I had no idea. I had to let the owner handle the number side of things, he has always been smarter with that. I really hope that my brother-in-law’s business venture will go well for him. Another tidbit of knowledge that I learned was how many supplement stores can be in one small area of town. I can’t complain though, I’ve had a great time learning about how a shop really works, behind the scenes. I have added a couple of new gray hairs to my head, of that I am almost positive, but I wouldn’t have traded the experience for the world.

new storefront helpingI didn’t realize the sheer amount of inventory that would be needed to fill such a small store area. The guy I know got a good deal on his lease of the storefront space, I just didn’t know how much it would take to fill those lonely walls. Cleaning up the shop wasn’t the most fun and I even had a couple of spider scares but everything looks super clean now. It wasn’t easy to find the right profit margins, when considering how much some of the supplements costs, even on a wholesaler level. I just hope that he has enough clientele to keep his business running well.

There were some bumps in the road that it took to get this store ready to open but we handled them together and got through all of the hassle. I look forward to his shop being around for a long time, namely because I need to get a family discount on those supplements, ha! In all seriousness, it was a great learning experience to see all of the processes that go into a hopping little supplement shop. The next time that you go and pay a visit to your favorite store, take a second to think of how that store came to be, most likely, it was a wild and stressful journey for the owners and staff.

If I don’t flip through another catalog for the next year, it will be too soon but knowing that I handpicked every single product that was going to show up was a great feeling. Being able to make the final order for this business gave me a sense of being proud, knowing that someone would bestow such an important series of decisions on a chump like me. Thank you sir, for putting faith in me and allowing me to help you start, what is sure to be, an awesome endeavor.


Vitamin D Shown to Lessen the Inhaler Need

Having a partner who has asthma, you will never know when a stressful situation will be waiting, just around the corner. Having to deal with attacks and watching the one I love’s lip turn into a sickly white color makes me queasy. At time, the attacks have gotten so severe that I feared I would have to take her to an emergency room. Thankfully, we have had a safe relationship but always having to remember to keep the inhalers full can be burdensome. Science is showing some new findings that are showing vitamin D to really be helping in treating asthmatics. By no means, am I suggesting that you toss out your inhalers, always keep those handy. In a pinch, or when you are facing dire choices and do not have your inhaler handy, vitamin D could be a great supplement to have. Millions of people live with asthma and living with those who have it purpose many challenges, if a successful relationship is to be had. What I recommend is that you always carry an extra inhaler, or vitamin D while you are with the one that you love, if they are someone that has asthma. This vitamin isn’t a product to use if you think that it will make asthma go away forever, it could end an attack though. Not just for asthma, having more vitamin D will be able to give a pump up to your immune system. Do you know what is even more devastating than having an asthma attack would be to have occur while you are already sick with another illness. Vitamin D can work wonders, if you include enough of it into your daily plan. Why this supplement does so well in studies with asthmatics is because it will actually help to reduce the flare-ups, or attacks that can quite literally stop regular breathing. Even changing the timing of how you breath, by a small percentage, can send your head into a panic. With so many news pieces trashing vitamins as nothing more than snake oil, hearing how the lives of asthma sufferers can be improved is an oil that I want to have on hand, at all times.

What Can I Ingest as a Swimmer?

To tackle this question that seems to be following me around, it all depends at which level you are competing. Since there have been more guidelines raised, as to what is acceptable for athletes to use. If you are in any kind of professional league, check acceptable lists that are relative to the organization that you belong to. As far as I know, different sporting authorities will have differing regulations, concerning what they will or will not let into their sport, regarding supplements. Now, if you a swimmer that is merely doing this as a hobby, this is where it gets super juicy! First and foremost, oxygen is, quite literally, your driving force once you hit the water. If I was in a boat and had to get back to land, would I want a flimsy set of oars or thick and sturdy ones, made from a thick tree? I don’t know about you but I would want to get the strongest set of oars, to get me to shore quickly.

For the past reason, I would get a nitric oxide booster, which will help immensely for enhancing the push factor, getting you across the water like a skipping stone. Call me a weirdo but I seem to always suffer from a flu-type of illness when I keep hitting the swimming pool. Chalk it up to a change in my internal temperature but the fluctuation of hot and cold always seem to flare up my sinuses. If others notice that they are reaching for tissues after drying off, a multivitamin couldn’t hurt to help keep those germs away from you. Steer clear of any meal replacement products or worse, mass gainers. While not bad for general use, swimmers who down a mass shake before swimming are going to feel like they just ate an anchor, heavy and weighted down. Going back and forth, continuing to do laps will definitely burn off the food rapidly, so having big meals will be essential. Unless you’ve missed it, it is a well-known that swimming is one of the most beneficial exercises you can accomplish. Due to the entire body workout you get from swimming in the water, it isn’t a big secret that swimmers are in near-flawless condition.

For those not used to the concept of eating more than they are burning off, speeding through the pool like a racer, it can sneak up on you. If you need to keep at a certain weight, especially useful for class divisions, grabbing a milk thistle supplement is great for boosting natural hunger. I’ve had mixed results with it, however, I had not been remembering to use it consistently. Lastly, energy is going to be very important and needed to clear your personal best lap times, just don’t overdo it.

Too much caffeine can lead to dehydration, weakening your entire body. Painfully, lack of water can lead to muscle spasms, which could be extremely dangerous, when adding water into the equation. I am beginning to sound like my mother, with rules to abide by before enter a swimming pool! I would go against needing to pick up a fat burner, you will naturally shed a ton of fat, solely through swimming on a regular schedule. As I have learned, from a few times of embarrassment, always have swim gear that fits you well, attire that is too loose could easily come off, leaving you filled with embarrassment.

Breathing Better with Cordygen NanO2

They have officially thought of everything, now. We have for you today a little bit about a supplement that can help you to breathe better, which can carry into you not being as tired when completing strenuous matters. Called Cordygen NanO2, Cordyceps is the big ingredient that you will see on this product. I had known about cordyceps from seeing images of what it does to animals, needless to say, I was hesitant before using this, After talking to a rep and being calmed down, she pointed out that this wasn’t going to do what had be done by nature to those animals. I toughened up and downed my first mixture, awaiting to see what would happen. I hate to admit, but for the first day, I was underwhelmed. I know that, with certain ingredients, they have to be taken into the system multiple times. You will see testosterone supplements being ones that sometimes can take weeks to fully activate it’s power within you. To put it simply, if you know you have a big event that is upcoming, try to start getting these drinks made for five days prior, if possible. 

This offering is a powder, the easiest option for those who have time to find a glass, get some water, and start mixing. I found it incredibly easy to just take the drink container that I needed, before I left the house to go run errands. Being that there are no artificial coloring or flavorings, the Cordygen mixes up to make a nice, clear, and refreshing drink (goes great on ice). After the third day, I began to feel like I was getting more out of the Cordygen NanO2, due to the simple fact that I felt like I had an abundance of energy. Even the expensive energy drinks that I had been sneaking could not touch how wide awake and boundless I felt.

For anyone with a sensitivity to gluten, you will be pleased to know that this supplement has been verified as being cordyceps powdergluten-free. I certainly wish that other companies would take a stand and provide more gluten-free supplements for the public. I personally do not suffer from any gluten allergy but having friends that do, it’s frustrating to see them have to take much longer to find a supplement that can meet their criteria.

As we sometimes touch upon, with regards to the bad substances that you want to watch out for in any supplement, you shouldn’t be finding any of them with Millennium Sports. The Cordygen NanO2 has been certified to be free of any substances that are harmful to you. Before I forget, I have to tell you how delicious the mixed up drink tasted, it long got me over my fears of drinking in cordyceps. Known as Kona Colada, the only flavor that I have seen this supplement being offered to have is a smart pick that goes down easy and smooth. I could really taste notes of pineapple and coconut that had me wishing it was safe to drink another glass of this stuff. As with most powder mixes, larger individuals may need an additional serving, spaced out from the first drink. It can be difficult to find the exact percentage of Cordygen NanO2 to get increased oxygen. For anyone who is an endurance athlete, instead of a being a pure sprinter, Millennium Sport’s oxygen enhancer is a great choice.


How I Enjoyed Glutamine Fuel by Twinlab

When you spend six days a week, working on different aspects of your physical stature, it can become tiresome. I’m tired of carrying with me, nothing but aching muscles that are longing for some kind of relief. Glutamine is known for its ability to aid in relief of sore joints. If you doing any typical workout without the use of a glutamine supplement, you are taking two steps back. As we exercise, the body floods itself of many essential nutrients because it sends them away to help the body recover. When you lose too much of the glutamine within you, it will slow down how you recover, making it take a longer time before you are back to normal. When you don’t repair your muscles, this can come back to bite you down the road. It is never advisable to add any extra strain on a muscle that is already sore. That being said, if you aren’t using glutamine to your advantage, you don’t have that extra time to use. Glutamine can also help to promote more active human growth hormone levels.

You won’t notice any kind of HGH boosters with the Glutamine Fuel, any changes that come to these hormones will just be the body releasing more of it. If you have been under the weather, over the past year, glutamine can also help to provide you with a stronger immune system, essential for zapping any chances that whatever comes around goes after you. This supplement can be a great, if somewhat lacking aid in helping you to trim down. Glutamine has been shown to help raise how many pounds are lost, when compared to those who were not taking any form of this ingredient. I will mainly use glutamine as a way to help reduce soreness and inflammation that comes with regular exercise. Glutamine Fuel was easy to take, I had my daily intake of this crucial nutrient within about ten seconds. No need to mix up a drink, spilling liquid all over the counter, just pop a couple of capsules are you are all set.

The perfect time of day to use Glutamine Fuel is different for everyone, here is my schedule for this supplement:

Lifting Days: 2 capsules, post-workout

Non-lifting Days: 1 capsule in the morning and 1 before dinner

It is a simple one but this schedule helps me to take note of the critical post workout window, where glutamine supplementation is most effective.

Twinlab Still Carries the Crown, In My Book

I am almost to the bottom of the current Glutamine Fuel container and I am thoroughly pleased with how quick I am able to rock and roll. You can find any form of glutamine for relatively inexpensive prices, no need to save up a lot of money just to get better recovery. Speaking of recovery, my time spent healing up went down dramatically from 2-3 days to a day, if at all. It never seemed like I was adding much size onto my frame and that was cool by me, it wasn’t why I wanted to start taking glutamine. I was able to lose, maybe, five pounds of straight up fat but the main factor had to do with recovery, which was sped up to such an extent that I was rarely sore. All of the Twinlab line of supplements have taken their own place on the throne of supplements that look to stand any test of time. I began lifting when Twinlab was all over the place and, even after those years have passed, I still see this company with their rightful place in stores nationwide.

Are Beef Aminos A Nutritious Choice?

Grilling has become a great way to spend the weekend, especially with the warmer weather that we are seeing. Beef isn’t always a type of meat that is palatable or in everyone’s grocery budget. Where you can get it twisted is when you think that just because a supplement has beef in it, that it will be a great source of protein. As odd as it is, beef amino supplements are going to be on the lower end of the protein scale. There are still important amino acids, all necessary for growing muscles, that you get from supplementing your beef intake. If anyone is wanting to stay on the safer side, with all of the recalls that pop up, you can never be too sure. With a mixture of essential and non-essential acids, the blend that is contained within shouldn’t leave you feeling let down. I will most often use the 100% Beef Aminos from Universal Nutrition. I was in between picking from other brands but after hearing all of the recommendations for the Universal product, over all others, I knew what I had to do. The price for these beef aminos will be far cheaper than trying to get actual beef, at least if you look at the serving price.

I was able to secure myself a 200 tablet bottle of the aminos for about fourteen dollars. I can barely get a large size of ground beef at the store for that price. Why many bodybuilders look to use chicken or fish, in substitution of beef is that there are a lot of unhealthy fats that you get from consuming too much beef. The label for this supplement is a tiny bit confusing, if you are the person that measures every calorie that they take in, you will need to crunch some numbers. If you use the Universal type of beef aminos, these come from three different sources, which are: Beef protein isolate, albumin, and beef liver. While not the most pleasing for your palette, you won’t taste a thing by swallowing down three tablets. The three tablet serving indication will provide you with a sufficient amount of the amino acids that are catalysts for developing your physique. As far as pure protein is concerned, you will only intake about a gram, not much to write about home.

Fill Up on Food, Don’t Leave Without It

I still wouldn’t completely skimp out on meat if you incorporate this supplement in your diet, you should never neglect eating actual food. If you weigh over, let’s say, 225 pounds, you are going to need to take much more than three tablets. Being that you should never go over what the company recommends you to use on their labels, this product won’t be for everyone. I actually watched my friend about to boil over with anger when he did that math and realized how the numbers played out. I am smaller than him, so the supplement getting taken using the minimum amount was exceptional for me. Be on the lookout, if you should develop any kind of stomach discomfort with this one.

beef amino acid

Amino acids shouldn’t be the main cause of serious stomach ailments, it is just a safety precaution to consider. Sometimes, it can be good to drop the expensive supplements out there and reach for something a little more cost-effective. I have found that a beef amino can be superb choice for delivering acids like: arginine, alanine, proline, and tyrosine. It is nearly impossible to track down all of the vitamins that you need to eat everyday, you would be awash in a sea of foods that no one person could eat in one day. For the previous reason, amino acids are great to use and ones that come from beef are even better to make use of.

Dream Body Company Creates Voluntary Recall

To anyone that lives in or around the Texas area, you will want to check your supplement stash soon. There has been a recall that is going on for certain weight loss supplements, shown to contain possibly dangerous ingredients. There is a company that is known as Dream Body Weight Loss who have made these supplements. The entire line of products isn’t facing recalls, just a select few from their wide supplement array. The recall was voluntarily called in by the company themselves and then reported so that it would go nationwide. These supplement makers have a ton of different supplements in their line, only a small few have been affected. Mainly affecting those in the Grand Prairie area, other surrounding cities could be affected by this recall, also. The particular supplements that are being looked at for containing a dangerous ingredient known as sibutramine, that were found in the following supplements: Dream Body Extreme Gold, Dream Body Advanced, in various sized servings.

In the event that you have this supplement but are unaware if your serving size is affected, it would still be smart to not use that supplement, until you have the official go ahead to do so. Sibutramine has not been allowed to be in supplements for quite some time, due to it causing many different and very serious side effects to happen to a user. I have really started to move my focus away from using supplements for losing weight and have tried to move to a more natural way of shedding the pounds. With all of the hidden dangers of ingredients that get brought to our collective attention, almost every single day, the risks start to outweigh the rewards. At some point, something has to give with I feel comfortable taking multiple times a day.  Lately, I have been trying different vegetables to try and sway me away from the candy cravings that I constantly fight off.

Starburst are my main guilty pleasure food that I can never seem to pull myself away from. I have no doubt that the company behind the recall is doing all that is possible to get this ingredient shake up laid to rest. I haven’t personally dealt with this company but I have family in Texas that has been going to them for a while and they have had nothing but praise to say about them. Weight loss supplements have been continuing to be recalled and it makes me sad. I am reminded of the big removal of an ingredient that I won’t mention because it was making people’s hearts race and ending up giving them really bad health problems.

How to Return A Contaminated Product

I don’t think that the current Dream Body recall will be another that grows to that big of a devastating concern, more of a temporary annoyance. You can send in the supplements that you have, from the recall, I don’t know if you need any proof of purchase or not, as you will have to head over to the company’s website to find out all of that information. I feel sorry for the Dream Body company during what has to be a very frustrating time for the business. I wanted to do what I could to spread the word of this voluntary recall, so that those who are affected can start to take steps so that you don’t end up hurting yourself on accident.
