An Open Letter to American Spectator

Just saw an ad for something called Myoplex — Fuel that helps repair and recharge muscles!

Some bullshit that says it contains “proprietary” proteins. Let’s have a look at the ingredients:

Filtered Water, Milk Protein Concentrate, Corn Maltodextrin. Less than 2% of the Following: Soy Protein Isolate, Calcium Caseinate, Cocoa Powder (Processed with Alkali), Sucrose, Vitamin & Mineral Blend (Magnesium Phosphate, Potassium Citrate, Sodium Ascorbate, Sodium Chloride, Zinc Gluconate, dl-Alpha-Tocopheryl Acetate, Niacinamide, Manganese Gluconate, Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Palmitate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Thiamin Hydrochloride, Riboflavin, Chromium Chloride, Folic Acid, Beta-Carotene, Vitamin D3, Biotin, Sodium Molybdate, Sodium Selenite, Potassium Iodide, Phytonadione, Cyanocobalamin), Natural & Artificial Flavors, Short-Chain Fructooligosaccharides, High Oleic Safflower Oil, Cellulose Gum, Carrageenan, Cellulose Gel, Acesulfame Potassium, Gellan Gum, and Sucralose.

The only protein it contain is concentrated milk protein. Corn Maltodextrin us a carbohydrate. The rest, less than 2 percent, is pure filler garbage. And it comes in a rather thick plastic container.

More fraud brought to you by nutritional scam industry. Better off drinking normal milk and eating real food.
