There are supplements for every situation, and for every persons needs. Fitness is no different. People involved in fitness know that there is also a supplement available to fill every need, and goal they may have. Everyone from the professional bodybuilder to the weekend warrior goes into a local supplement store looking for a product to help them reach their goals. They may be grabbing a supplement for fat burning, weight loss, muscle building, or extra energy for their workout, the list is longer than Santa’s at Christmas.
With all the choices it is difficult to know what supplement to pick, which one is a rip off or which one will help. Supplement companies take advantage of this confusion exploiting your desire to reach your goal. Below are three supplement company scams people should be on the lookout for. These scams are not limited to fitness people like bodybuilders, or weight loss seekers. As consumers become more aware and educated as to their supplement choices, supplement companies have really had to get creative with their marketing methods.
At SupplementForPennies.com there are quite a few supplement-marketing swindles listed to be on the lookout for. Below you can expect to find three that are mentioned in the free supplement review guide that you can pick up at: Free Supplement Review Guide A prevalent marketing ploy that is often used in bodybuilding magazines is what I call “cartoon muscle.” Cartoon muscle is an animated ad where basically the muscles and supplement actions are cartoon images. If you are looking at a supplement ad for muscle mass building the muscle fibers supplement, before and after pictures are all cartoons. The ad may show your muscle fibers on your current workout program without supplements then what your muscles will look like after using their supplement.
They will display images describing how flat your muscles are, and how you are not stimulating these muscle fibers enough, and things like that. The ad will then show an after picture describing how after one dose of product X, your muscles will experience massive growth and here’s what it’ll look like. And it shows you this cartoon image of, like, these giant muscle fibers. And they’re all being stimulated, and they’re all growing massive muscle. it’s real easy to show this in cartoon images to give you the impression that this is actually how it’s going to work in your body as well.
Something else that is often done by supplement companies is what I call the supplement “supplement sprinkle.” You must have seen the supplements that say something like, “27 muscle-building ingredients in every dosage.” Well, if you have 27 different ingredients in a pill, chances are you’re not getting enough of what’s really powerful in that supplement. As a general rule anytime that you see supplement added to supplement for what seems like forever chances are you’re not getting enough of each dosage or at a minimum, you are not getting enough of major active supplement. There might be one or two of the supplements that are in that supplement that work really, really well, but they’re not putting in enough of them because they figure – or people figure that if they see a whole bunch of different ingredients in there, then it must be working better. This has been marketed really, really heavy in the magazines with the “more is better” approach.
Proprietary formulas are very deceptive and without question a popular supplement company scam.
Proprietary formulas is something that’s really meant to decoy you the consumer into thinking that the supplement company’s research team has put together an extraordinary formula. But the truth is anything can be a proprietary formula. This gives the supplement an allure of being secret. But what they are really doing is hiding the ingredients. If they will not tell what is in the bottle, chances are they’re hiding something. I would recommend you do not buy. That is just 3 quick tricks you have to be on the lookout for when buying supplements for anything. The fitness industry uses all these tricks in their weight loss and muscle building products. Beware; do not waste your money.
