Here’s something I’ve been saying for nearly ten years now:
The supplement industry sucks.
It is, as the wise Ben Kenobi said, a wretched hive of scum and villainy.
Fake news, fake science, fake products, you can find them all and more in the supplement racket.
It’s funny, really . . . in the not-so-funny kind of way.
For example, when you buy a supplement, you expect it to contain what’s on the label, right? Seems fair enough.
Wishful thinking, frando.
A few years ago, the New York Attorney General’s office had hundreds of different supplements analyzed, including echinacea, St. John’s wort, brain boosters, and prostate support.
The result? Their DNA testing revealed that 80 percent of the bottles contained none of the ingredients on the labels.
Which begs the question . . .
If the ingredients on the labels were nowhere to be found, what was in these supplements?
Junk and fillers like rice, beans, wheat, asparagus, and my personal favorite: houseplant.
A brilliant plan . . . if you love jail.
Sadly, that’s one of the milder cases of shenanigans in this wackydoodle industry.
Did you hear about the supplement companies selling pre-workout and fat loss products spiked with methamphetamine-like drugs?
Yep, that happened.
The companies were Driven Sports and Gaspari Nutrition, and the products were called “Craze” and “Detonate.”
Aptly named, if you ask me. Criminals have such a fun sense of humor!
An assistant professor from Harvard Medical School who helped discover the problem had this to say about it:
“These are basically brand-new drugs that are being designed in clandestine laboratories where there’s absolutely no guarantee of quality control.”
Hmmm . . .
Selling supplements spiked with untested drugs made in underground labs by rogue experimenters with no oversight?
That sounds like a fantastic way to change lives . . . in the worst possible way.
A study conducted by scientists at the California Department of Public Health and published in 2018 found 776 supplements from various brands contained unlisted pharmaceuticals.
The supplements most often adulterated were those marketed for sexual enhancement, weight loss, or muscle building, the study reports.
Oh, the humanity.
The sh*tshow goes on, too.
Just a month ago (January 2020), the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York ordered a major supplement manufacturer to recall literally everything they sold between January 2013 and November 2019.
They were adulterating and mislabeling much of the stuff they were making . . . for more than 800 supplement brands (including some fairly popular ones you’ve probably heard of).
You can’t make this stuff up.
That’s why when I set out to create Legion, I wanted to do things differently.
- I wanted to work only with the best manufacturers that pass FDA inspections with flying colors.
That is, I wanted to be sure I was getting exactly what I was paying for.
- I wanted all the ingredients and doses to be backed by peer-reviewed scientific research.
That means using the exact ingredients and amounts proven effective in published scientific studies.
- I wanted 100% transparent formulations.
You should know exactly what you’re getting for your money—every ingredient and dose.
- I wanted to use education and not hype to promote and sell my products.
This way, I could actually help people use diet, exercise, and supplementation to lose fat, build muscle, and get healthy.
Basically, I wanted to treat consumers the way I’d want to be treated, and that’s why Legion is now a thriving business that has served over 300,000 customers all around the world and received thousands of 5-star reviews.
So, here’s the bottom line:
I’m not here to just sell pills and powders.
I want to help change the supplement industry for the better by setting the standard for what it really means to be a “science-based supplement company.”
And that means I believe in respecting my customers, telling things like it is, and delivering what I promise.
I also believe that using honesty, integrity, and facts to build a business is better than cutting corners and spreading lies and misinformation.
