I was out and about last Saturday when I noticed a lot of buzz in and around a local supplement retailer. Naturally, my curiosity got the best of me and I ducked in to see what was up. Turns out the shop was hosting a health fair and all of the individual product vendors were set up to promote their products.

Unfortunately, I was wearing my logo shirt so the vendors were on me like flies on poo. By the time I left the shop, I had a bag chock full of free samples of everything from performance enhancers to anti-aging pills that I would never ingest in a million years.

You may or may not know that the FDA does not regulate supplements. As such, the manufactures can advertise just about any benefit they want on their packaging. Some of the claimed benefits are just plain laughable.

I had a good time reading them later during lunch and one in particular stood out. This shake features quite possibly the most ridiculous advertising I’ve ever read. Without naming the product, you be the judge:

Caution!! Highly sensitive to Atmoshereic Disperion. DO NOT SHAKE POUCH!

World’s Strongest Vaso-Anabolic Psychoactive Experience

Seriously?

Please use good judgement when buying any dietary supplement. Most folks can get all they need from a multivitamin, fish oil and maybe a vitamin D supplement.
