Who takes this rubbish ? 


Some supplement reasearcher somewhere banging a few molecules together and altering methyl groups to get perviously banned supplement back in their products.


Do people not consider the impact these synthetic ingredients with lack of research influence there body. It probably wouldn't be to much of an issue as a once off but people that use these pre workout products are  religious about using them. 


Im assuming these ingredients are used it Pre workout and "fat burning" products

Probably the same people who then swear that aspartame is pure poison, and that Subway bread contains yoga mats. :-D

And they wonder why folks go through the trouble of finding UGL's. These supps get the the 'good' stuff taken out and left with little else but fillers it seems lol so you end up forking over a couple hunnit for supps that are legal in a pretty colored box or container thats less effective than baby powder at premium price. Might have to try an eca stack one day!
