    Damn... Props to JM for having integrity. Makes me wonder if Evan saw the writing on the wall. Either way, PJ and Aaron's reputation continues to burn. Sad.

    Pasted.....


    Please read:


    I continue to receive questions asking if I am part of Prime Nutrition.


    The answer is unequivocally no. I am not associated with them in any way, shape, or form.


    For those of you who supported me and bought their products, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Unfortunately, I have never received 1 penny of the residual income I was promised for the delivery of IntraMD (which became Prime's flagship product) as a formulator. There were other major compensation issues between Prime and myself as well, but due to legal reasons I can't get into those.


    There is a much bigger issue here that needs to be addressed though.


    What is most disappointing, is that I was recently warned about the products with my name on them; that they likely did not have the ingredients (nor the doses) that were in the formulas I gave to Prime. My word is my bond, and I do not put my name on anything unless I believe in it. I know what it's like to manage a tight budget, and the last thing I want is for men and women to throw away their hard earned dollars on something that does not meet label claims, or worse, contain none of the listed ingredients as advertised in the products.


    I wanted to know if this was true, so I spent a few thousand dollars of MY OWN money to have the products tested for 2 ingredients, for starters - Teacrine, and Hydromax. The testing was done by one of the most reputable labs in the US. On the first test we had a container of IntraMD EAA sent to the lab that was purchased from the Vitamin Shoppe. The results of the first test were well below label claim for Hydromax. This was the only ingredient I had tested due to expense. I then had a second test done on IntraMD EAA that was sent directly to the lab from Amazon (where it was purchased), to confirm and verify the first set of tests that were performed. I had hydromax tested again, and added teacrine to this test as well. What you see attached are the result's of the 2nd test. Needless to say it was another substandard result that validated the first.


    - NO teacrine was found in the product.
    - 44% of label claim for Hydromax was found.


    These findings are a betrayal of trust that I gave to Prime and is not something I take lightly.


    The manufacturer that made this product for Prime is DuraCap labs. The owners of this company were part owners in Prime until just a few days ago.


    Many of you have voiced complaints over the last few months, but felt as if you couldn't really do anything about it - well I can. I will stand up for you and for what's right.


    This is not a "gut feeling" or me lashing out. This is not a smear campaign. This is pure and simple fact confirmed by rigorous scientific testing that will hold up in court.


    I believe that if I tested for the more expensive ingredients such as the branch cyclic dextrin in IntraMD, they would fail to meet label claim as well.


    So there are the facts, plain and simple.


    This industry is full of people taking advantage of others due to out of control greed. Think long and hard about who you support and do business with. I hope you, the customers are made whole with this information.


    On a side note, the brand new majority owner in Prime is a man of integrity and has fought for our rights (he fought against protein spiking), and I believe he is the right man to clean this up.

    Does PJ own this? I went over to their Facebook and they have all those beauty and brawn videos and shit.

    Nothing worse than using two of the most respected people in bodybuilding (Evan and John) as a means of adding credibility to the not credible.

    Jonh Meadows really is a cool cat. On the contrary, those owners of Prime are scumbag. But why am I not surprised... Scamming people is the fundamental stone of the supplement business. The industry could disappear tommorow with no repercussion, except more money in people pocket.

    Exactly. I have a really hard time buying any supplements really, from protein powder to multivitamins to bcaa. Seems like a really shady industry and hard to know exactly what you are ingesting.

    This is the third or fourth thread regarding this. Can you make sure this one stays? Please.

    There's really no oversight on the supplement industry. Not exactly shocked. I don't use any kind of supplements like pre-workout, etc just for the simple fact that you never really have any idea if you are truly getting what is on the label. This type of thing is not exactly uncommon.

    Interesting how two guys who were best friends for years now hate each other, two of the most respectable bodybuilders in the sport got fucked over. I'm always amazed at how much lower this industry can sink. Truly amazing.

    I agree. At one point I started buying individual products like arginine, beta alanine, creatine etc. and making my own preworkouts. But then I got thinking how do I even know that the individual products are what they say they are. With everything that we have heard and keep hearing over the years it makes it really hard to buy any supplements at all.

    Here before people start to defend the scumbags like Singerman because they are "great" business men.
