#060: TJ Humphreys Joins Nic Stella at RYSE Supps
In Episode #060, we learn that TJ Humphreys has joined Nic Stella at RYSE Supps, and they have new flavors (Smarties and Bazooka) as well as an energy drink (RYSE Fuel) coming! Our first podcast of 2022 came with some excellent news: TJ Humphreys has joined Nic Stella at RYSE Supps. Many supplement industry veterans know TJ from his days as CEO and owner of ProSupps, but now he's taken on a leadership role in Dallas, TX as President and Partner. From a distance, TJ has been watching RYSE Supps punch its way into the space and then become a best-selling brand at a top retailer in the country (Vitamin Shoppe). This follows previous power moves where creative superstar Greg Helton also joined RYSE as VP. In this episode, we first introduce TJ and then have him talk about his background. After that, we discuss the new stuff coming from RYSE (which includes an energy drink!), and then get into distribution and RYSE's incredible social media strategy that's taken them to the next level. Video and audio versions are below, and then more details after that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXW_qflS2No Audio Version: Subscribe to the PricePlow Podcast on Your Favorite ServiceiTunesSpotify Google PodcastsSoundCloud TJ Humphreys now at RYSE Supps TJ's been in the industry for over 20 years, starting at Lone Star Distribution (which was subsequently merged with Europa Sports). He started ProSupps in early 2012, coming out with the famous Hyde pre workout. It was eventually time for a new, more aggressive endeavor: "I love to lead, I love to inspire, I love high-growth opportunities. Not afraid of challenges, not afraid of adversity. And thankfully, Nic has created a soft spot for me to land here, because he's really done things well." -- TJ Humphreys, RYSE President and Partner Experience: "Dumb tax" is paid "You can’t ask others to do what you aren’t willing to do yourself." TJ explains how much "dumb tax" he's paid in his 20 years of learning experience - he's become an expert in dealing with retailers, international sales opportunities, shipping, manufacturing, distribution, and more. This is the expertise that he can pass down to Nic. At RYSE, Nic has created a rocket ship, and TJ is making sure he has the right people on the train, and a lot of it will be with his retail expertise. They already have meetings lined up with some major FDM (Food, Drug, and Mass Market) companies and are going in with a serious tailwind due to Nic's incredible job on the web and in social media. The trifecta of Nic, TJ, and Greg Helton covers numerous parts of the market, ranging across social media, retail, international, design, compliance, manufacturing, and supply chain. New product development at RYSE RYSE is putting out an energy drink (named RYSE Fuel on their social media page), and while TJ recognizes that many energy drink consumers are brand-agnostic, they can make a better approach through specialty stores first. This will eventually lead to larger energy drink sales at FDM -- but TJ's sure to note that major chains are already very interested. RYSE's collabs with SunnyD and Ring Pop (which are currently the top two selling pre workouts at Vitamin Shoppe) are definitely driving much of the international and big-business interest, but it's important to note that these products are most often first popular at supplement-specific stores before major players get involved. RYSE Fuel Coming in early 2022: The RYSE Fuel Energy Drink Similarly, RYSE Fuel will first be driven by these flavor collabs - the SunnyD flavor will get its own unique can. It will have 200 milligrams of caffeine and 500 milligrams of CDP-choline, so it will definitely feel very good but not hit overly hard. The cans look incredible, just like RYSE's supplements, so the retailers that have seen the mockups and labels are already in. Learning from past mistakes

#059: NuLiv Science Expanding Its Offerings (Gerhard Hoermann)
At the end of 2021, we had Gerhard Hoermann of NuLiv Science on the PricePlow Podcast to discuss the novel ingredient developer's back-half of the year, recent international travels, and what's coming in the future. Listen to Gerhard Hoermann of NuLiv Science talk about the end of 2021 and the company's ingredient offerings which go well beyond AstraGin on Episode #059 of the PricePlow Podcast Key takeaways from this discussion are that NuLiv Science has many more ingredients going above and beyond the ones we frequently cover here (such as the astragalosides and ginsenosides in AstraGin, Senactiv, InnoSlim, and Astrion), and NuLiv Science is doing a fantastic job building more content, as can be seen on their @NuLivScience page on Instagram. Gerhard (commonly known as 'G' in the industry) kicks it off by talking about their recent trip to Germany, as well as SupplySide West. He explains that the American market (as seen at SupplySide West) is currently stronger for novel ingredients, while European markets are behind on technology, presenting more opportunity for innovation.

This article covers their ingredients and teases some new content to come! After covering Gerhard's background in sports nutrition (he worked in retail and then in online media), he gets into the transition of working with NuLiv Science, who generally operates more behind the scenes. He now helps brands put the right ingredients into new supplements, providing them with an edge against their competition. 'G' tells us that NuLiv has a new ingredient coming in 2022, and it will get coverage here on PricePlow, so sign up for our NuLiv Science news alerts. Don't miss the NuLiv Science social media content One of the things G has done incredibly well since beginning at NuLiv Science is to help drive and provide more content on NuLiv Science's social media properties. They're doing more behind-the-scenes content, new collaborative taste-testing and product breakdowns, and making it cooler to be talking about ingredient science. Since most companies are already aware of AstraGin (absorption-amplifier - find our blog's AstraGin tag page to see how many product articles have included it), NuLiv already has great relationships that are bolstered at conventions such as SupplySide West. However, it's their team's job to educate brands and consumers about their other ingredients. More than just AstraGin: Other NuLiv Science Ingredients Out with the old, in with the new. Regenerate senescent cells and improve performance with NuLiv Science's Senactiv Senactiv and InnoSlim both made a great push in sports nutrition in 2021, while Astrion and Verbasnol are getting more heavily into skin care. Beyond that, a highly underrated ingredient is Zylaria, which is a relaxing ingredient based upon xylaria with a few recent tweaks made last year. As Mike mentions during the podcast, an easy way to test out the anxiety-relieving capabilities of Zylaria is in Avani Health Stress + Sleep Support, which has 1 gram of Zylaria with absorption boosted by both 50 milligrams of AstraGin and 10 milligrams of black pepper extract in two capsules. A major mushroom supplier Most users also don't know that NuLiv has several mushroom based ingredients, such as CordycepsPrime, ABMPrime, ChagaPrime, ReishiPrime, ShiitakePrime, MaitakePrime, CoriolusPrime, and HericiumPrime. They're actually one of the biggest mushroom suppliers in the world, and many don't even know that! NuLivScience is a global research company with several patented ingredients including AstraGin, InnoSlim, Astrion,

#058: Kaged - Never Stop Evolving (Michael McClane & Darin Decker)
On December 7, 2021, Ben sat down with Darin Decker and Michael McClane of Kaged Muscle, who had a lot to say about the future of the brand. With a new tagline of "Never Stop Evolving", Kaged Muscle is now KAGED You may remember Darin from Episode #047, where we learned of the great things coming for the end of 2021. This episode takes things a lot further. Right off the bat, for those who watch the YouTube video, we get to see the new Elite Series that comes with all new branding. Kaged Muscle Becomes Kaged The major announcement is that the team is shifting the branding from Kaged Muscle to simply Kaged. While exercise is still the epicenter of health and wellness, helping customers live their best lives is more than just building muscle. Simply put, Kaged is more than muscle. The details are below on video and in our audio feeds (subscribe to the PricePlow Podcast with your favorite podcast app), and also be sure to sign up for our Kaged news alerts before checking out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FygqwrAjFSY Audio Version: Subscribe to the PricePlow Podcast on Your Favorite ServiceiTunesSpotify Google PodcastsSoundCloud The Kaged Background A look at the new Kaged logo in some new Ice Shakers they've sent out Before getting into the rebrand, Michael takes us back through the inception of Kaged Muscle, where it was a "no-brainer" opportunity: they'd seen what brands were succeeding on Bodybuilding.com, some of which Kaged formulator Brian Rand had actually created (flashback to our 2016 article titled Meet the Man Who REALLY Formulated Pre-JYM). By partnering with Kris Gethin, there was perfect alignment in terms of their goals. They decided to develop better supplements, accept lower profit margins, and use forward-thinking marketing strategies to make it come to life. The push worked, and over time, they were still able to sell in major stores, changing the retail landscape away from a period where only ultra cheaply made formulas could maintain profitability. "We're never going to launch a me-too product" Michael explains that Kaged is never going to launch a product that doesn't innovate. Innovation isn't just in supplements, either - Kaged also has some of the best training programs in the industry. Ben lists some of the recent supplements that, despite being in a "legacy" category, have been very innovative: Clean Meal (meal replacement protein) Kaged Omega-3 (extraordinarily high purity fish oil) Kaged Multivitamin (multi with whole foods sources) And of course, innovations like Pro-Biotic, the ioPea in Plantein, and CreaClear creatine monohydrate shouldn't be forgotten either! So what about their legendary pre-workout supplement, Pre-Kaged? Meet Pre-Kaged ELITE Two years in the making, Darin introduces Pre-Kaged Elite to PricePlow Nation. "More pumps, more energy, more focus". Put simply, this label is bombastic. It is the epitome of it all. A little tease from the front of those Pre-Kaged Elite labels on the table For example, it has 10 grams of fermented citrulline, an insane dosage - especially given the recent supply chain crisis! There's creatine, there's nitrates, and far more with nine patented, properly-dosed ingredients inside. The scoop weight (in grams) is in the high-30s! Altogether, it has 388 milligrams of total caffeine, which is the highest Kaged will ever go. When the original Pre-Kaged launched 7 years prior, it had similar responses given its never-before-seen dosing. As time has evolved, so has the dosing pattern - and Kaged has once again stepped up to surprise the world. Not replacing Pre-Kaged Pre-Kaged Elite is not replacing Pre-Kaged -- it instead augments the line, just like the Pre-Kaged Sport, which is the entry-level product for sports-level athletes. Unlike Pre-Kaged, the Elite version won't have BCAAs - there are different consumer angles for each pre-workout option.

#056: Jamie Giovinazzo - Eat Clean Bro
Jamie Giovinazzo of Eat Clean Bro joins the PricePlow Podcast and shows us what it's really like to truly love your customers In Fall of 2021, we hosted Jamie Giovinazzo of Eat Clean Bro on the PricePlow Podcast. Eat Clean Bro is the fresh meal delivery company based in the Northeast that Jamie founded, and is going through monstrous growth. In this episode of the PricePlow Podcast, we talked about Jamie's story from humble beginnings, food quality and craftsmanship, entrepreneurship, and fame. This was a strong and passionate discussion, and of all of the business owners we've talked to, none seem to love their business and their customers as much as Jamie - and that says a lot given the intense industry we deal with.

Fresh! Talking Eat Clean Bro with Jamie Giovinazzo "New Jersey is the epicenter of bro", but Jamie tells us that they also have a kitchen in Atlanta, GA and are looking at Boston and Washington DC expansion. Jamie discusses where he operates in a way where he puts other people first, and it breeds cooperation, loyalty, and appreciation. Jamie nearly has "celebrity status" because he knows so many people in the Northeast, but of everyone he deals with, he's easily the most relatable person. He shares his rather strong opinions about social media, but tries to "bring people back to earth". From humble beginnings Jamie discusses that he's learned from mistakes, 5:27: "I've seen the rise and fall of many great entrepreneurs, and over the years, the most apparent trait is the ego. When you start feeling invincible, that's usually when you fall the hardest. I'm very aware - I'm not invincible." -- Jamie Giovinazzo A company to support 6:30: "We make every single meal in-house... There's a lot of national meal brands that do not cook the food, they outsource, they use copackers to make their food, they outsource their customer service wherever they can get it the cheapest, and they're literally just a marketing company hammering coupons and they're collecting customer information, and they're taking that data, and that's the data they're using to sell to bigger companies who want that information... And really what I'm getting at man, is I'm trying to be relatable and trying to encourage people and trying to get people to understand the real entrepreneur grind and to support your local entrepreneur and support local." -- Jamie Giovinazzo Customer service: a real human on the phone and live chat 8:20: "I always tell people about the customer service. When you call, there's no ringtone. There's no 'please press 1 for sales or press 2..' dude.. You call, we pick up the phone. If you're calling, chances are, you want to talk to somebody. I mean come on, any business that has that f'in 'press this or press that', and they're not even that busy, I'm like come on man, somebody just answer the phone, why do I gotta press these buttons... ...So when you call Eat Clean Bro with one or two rings, there's a real person who answers the phone, and our live chat is the same way." -- Jamie Giovinazzo Food cooked from scratch 9:08: "I don't know if I do a good enough job promoting the talent we have, but Chef John got recognized as one of the best chefs in America.

#055: Sara Perez Ojalvo - Nutrition21 at SupplySide West 2021
On October 29, 2021, Ben interviewed Sara Perez Ojalvo, the Director of Research & Development at Nutrition21, the ingredient development powerhouse that's behind key sports nutrition, dietary, and performance ingredients like Nitrosigine, nooLVL, Chromax, and Velositol. Meet Sara Perez Ojalvo and the Nutrition21 Way of Doing Things Meet Sara Ojalvo Perez, Director of R&D at Nutrition21, and learn how the company's research is coming along! Sara has been with Nutrition21 for seven years. When she first started, the brand's focus was on Nitrosigine, a new patented nitric oxide booster in the form of inositol-stabilized arginine silicate, but it only had one study published at the time. Sara's job is to design new research to demonstrate to the scientific and consumer communities that the ingredient is safe, efficacious, and beneficial for its purposes. Sara graduated from the prominent Wesleyan University in Connecticut with a degree in Biology. She decided against medical school and lab-work, wanting to be in science yet not in the lab on a day-to-day basis. When she began, Sara oversaw three simultaneous studies with funding the company had available. It's her job to work with sales and marketing to see what consumers and brands are asking for, and to see if they can deliver an ingredient that works both in the lab and in the real world. The full story is below, but you can subscribe to the PricePlow Podcast or watch the embedded video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1UFaA2i3l0 Audio Version: Subscribe to the PricePlow Podcast on Your Favorite ServiceiTunesSpotify Google PodcastsSoundCloud Nutrition21 the research company Nutrition21 is a leader in the sports nutrition industry, making huge strides towards supplement research, safety, transparency, and efficacy As we've said numerous times on PricePlow, Nutrition21 is more of a research company than just a novel ingredient developer. Much of this is covered in our article titled The Evolution of Nutrition21's Sports Nutrition Ingredients. Ben also brings up the unique Arkansas study that pitted Nitrosigine against citrulline malate, and showed that Nitrosigine was comparable to citrulline malate at less than a fourth of the dose! Nitrosigine and cognitive function... leading to nooLVL When funding studies, Nutrition21 enjoys collecting as much data as possible, because you're never sure what you'll find. While Nitrosigine is a pre workout ingredient, they figured they would study some cognitive function parameters as well, not fully sure if they'd hit anything big. It turned out that Nitrosigine did improve cognitive function -- within 15 minutes -- and this eventually led to the creation of NooLVL, which was focused on gamers. Confused about Nutrition21's Sports Nutrition Ingredients? This article explains their key characteristics, differences, and how they've come to market over time NooLVL was then studied on gamers in their gaming studies, played with modern games, and much of that is covered in our article titled nooLVL: Next-Gen Focus Ingredient for Gaming Supplements. Mechanistically, the effect makes sense - the increased nitric oxide from both Nitrosigine and nooLVL don't just increase blood flow and oxygenation for the muscles, they work for the brain as well! Future nooLVL research Sara discusses where nooLVL research may go next: in previous research, they allowed gamers to play their favorite games between their cognitive battery tests. However, because of this, there was too much variability, and they couldn't collect consistent data regarding in-game performance data. In future studies, it'd be great to standardize on a single game altogether to look at performance as well. The latest nooLVL research is covered in our article titled nooLVL Increases Short-term Memory and Reaction Time: New Study, which Sara discusses as well. Latest Velositol Research

#054: Krik Angacian - CandyCan Makes Gummies Functional and Healthy
Krik Angacian is back, and he's got a brilliant idea -- CandyCan, functional gummies where you can eat the entire bag! On October 18th, 2021, we interviewed Krik Angacian, co-founder and CEO of CandyCan, about his new "functional candy" gummy snacks. Before founding CandyCan, Krik also co-founded Protes, a company that was well-known for its delicious protein chips. We talked to Krik about how he transitioned from investment banking to the food industry, how the process of building companies differs from buying and selling them, and what he's learned about the unique challenges of gummy production when it comes to both formulation and ingredient stability. You can listen (or watch) the podcast, and see below for more information: Audio Version: Subscribe to the PricePlow Podcast on Your Favorite ServiceiTunesSpotify Google PodcastsSoundCloud What is "Functional Candy?" Meet CandyCan, the latest way to snack smart using low-sugar supplement gummy bears... where you are meant to eat the entire bag! According to Krik, CandyCan is trying to fill a space somewhere between ordinary food and traditional supplements. In an industry whose marketing is skewed so heavily towards bodybuilders and high-performing athletes, Krik sees an opportunity to market beneficial supplements that can also capture the attention of more ordinary, non-athletic consumers: people who aren't trying to push the limits of their bodies, but just want something a little healthier and more useful than ordinary snack food. Krik got this idea one day when he got caught by his co-founder eating multivitamin gummies like snack food, and realized that the deliciousness of the gummy form factor would always leave consumers wanting more than just one or two gummies. That's why CandyCan is pairing up with one of North America's top gummy manufacturers to launch a range of enriching gummy products, including Immunity, which is due to be released towards the end of 2021. Krik also talks us through the state of industry regulations and processing, and some of the challenges that came with formulating Immunity and other gummy products, including: I don't want to sell snake oil... anything I put out, I wanna make sure it stays stable in a gummy. -- Krik Angacian, CandyCan How do you get a gummy with turmeric and black pepper to taste sweet and sour? How do you keep more fragile ingredients from "cooking out" during production? How do you ensure that the bioavailability of ingredients is high? How do you find a good gummy production line? Launching efficacious products is Krik's top priority. "I don't want to sell snake oil... anything I put out, I wanna make sure it stays stable in a gummy." Business Philosophy Yes, these are sour gummies - look at those crystals! Krik tries to stay humble in his role as co-founder and CEO, freely admitting that he was caught off guard by the challenges of building a company from scratch, and that he doesn't know everything. In his words, "I've been working out for about 17 years... but I'm still learning." Ben talks to Krik about the central role of authenticity in branding, and how awesome it is that CandyCan's brand aligns with who Krik really is as a person. In the middle of the show, Mike also provides his review (since Ben's will be embedded below when it's live), and is extremely bullish on both Krik and CandyCan.

#053: Marc Lobliner - Outright Bars and Adding Velositol to Outright Breakfast Bars
In Episode #053 of the PricePlow Podcast, we hear from Marc Lobliner and talk about why he added Nutrition21's Velositol to his Outright Breakfast Bars On October 9th, 2021, we sat down with Marc Lobliner, Chief Marketing Officer of TigerFitness and CEO of MTS Nutrition. Most recently, Marc is the inventor of the Outright Bar and Outright Breakfast Bar, and Ben traveled to Tennessee to discuss the history of the product and the unique advantages of its key protein-boosting ingredient, Velositol. Marc walks us through the thought process that led him to the formulation of the Outright Breakfast Bar, which he intended to be a "whole food protein bar" that could serve as a meal replacement, and help sustain athletes during long games by giving them a balanced macronutrient intake and good digestion. Listen to him explain why Velositol, which enhances the uptake of post-workout protein and increases muscle protein synthesis, was key to designing a bar that could fill this variety of needs. Audio Version: Subscribe to the PricePlow Podcast on Your Favorite ServiceiTunesSpotify Google PodcastsSoundCloud Talking Velositol, Outright Breakfast Bars, and More with Marc Lobliner In this article, we explain why Velositol is the "missing link" for protein bars Marc gives us some great insights on how a product can be formulated for the widest possible appeal. For Marc, this began as an emphasis on child nutrition -- the idea for the Outright Bar was conceived during one of his daughter's soccer matches, where Marc wanted to feed her something that would enhance her performance, but realized that the bars available to him were all going to detract from it. Then we pick his brain on the safety profile of Nutrition 21's Velositol (spoiler alert: it's very safe), and the general risks associated with being an innovator who's the first one to market a new ingredient. Finally, Marc gives us some great thoughts on marketing a product and running a company, and what to look for when you consider buying someone else's product. He also gives us some sage advice for anyone who wants to start a company of their own.

After huge success with his Outright Bar, Marc Lobliner launched his Outright Breakfast Bar, and boosted it with Velositol!Ben: over time, the protein content of "protein bars" has gone down Marc: Outright Bar was designed to be a "whole food" protein bar -- something with a good mix of different macros and natural ingredients, as opposed to existing products which were full of gut irritants such as glycerol and prebiotic fiber, or caused blood sugar swings Velositol chosen to make Outright Breakfast Bars "better than breakfast" as a meal replacement, not just a supplemental protein snack -- increases bioavailability of protein and gives it a longer, more even rate of digestion Because Velositol increases the uptake of protein, it allows one to use less protein but get the same effect Cuts costs Also helps people who can't eat big meals in the morning, since Velositol decreases your protein requirements Outright Bar launched in 2018

Chris Bumstead is now a partner at Raw Nutrition! Learn what's coming back with PricePlow Podcast Episode #052. On September 13, 2021, Raw Nutrition announced that they added a new partner to their ownership team -- the 2019 and 2020 Classic Physique Mr. Olympia himself, Chris Bumstead! Chris had already been a sponsored athlete on the Revive MD team, and we covered his story (and his love for Revive MD Kidney) in an earlier athlete profile titled Chris Bumstead: "The Comeback Kid". Now, however, he's making his biggest move yet, joining Dr. Domenic Iacovone and Matt Jansen as co-owners of Raw Nutrition! In this episode of the PricePlow Podcast, we interview the three men and talk about their story, their plans for the brand, and what's going to happen to Chris' CBUM product line. We're extremely grateful for this interview, since Chris is just 8 days out from Mr. Olympia!

Additional Notes Chris parted ways very amicably with his former sponsor, Jacked Factory. Since they were already in the process of developing the CBUM product line, they decided to share the labels and for the first manufacturing run, both companies would donate profits to two different canine charities, since everyone involved are dog lovers. Chris knows how important essential fatty acids are for health, so he uses Revive MD Omega 3! Upon joining Raw Nutrition, one of his first tasks was to reduce the price of Raw Pre Extreme, which his fans stated was too expensive. Chris actually reads his comments, and wants to pull his community into the Raw Nutrition picture. Matt and Dom talk about the decision, the collaboration, and how they've turned their facility into the elite training crew of this generation. We'll also learn about Chris' supplement stack (he loves his beta alanine, still uses Revive MD Kidney, and has plenty of others to share), learn his favorite snack recipes, get some dog stories, and more.

Later on we also discuss the state of "hyperinflation" we're seeing in the economy and how Millennials like Ben have been priced out of the housing market for now. Will it come back down to earth? Hiring at PricePlow We're going to be looking for a like-minded individual who's autonomous, zealous about supplements, and a great technical writer. The job's not posted yet, but would love to hear from anyone with the following qualities: Incredible technical writer 11/10 in terms of organization Can post in WordPress (training provided) Can manage and engage our YouTube channel (training provided) Can post contest giveaways via Buffer (training provided) Contact us if you're interested! Product Launches of 2021 We've been very impressed with the new Performax Labs rebrand, Unbound, everything Ghost has done for their year of the V2, ingredient launches at NNB Nutrition like ergothioneine, how much Doug Miller (Episode #050) is keeping us busy at CORE / Merica / Arms Race, how Dr. Dom Iacovone and Matt Jansen are literally taking over bodybuilding and bringing Raw Nutrition and Revive MD with them, and far more. Don't sleep on Kaged lately either! Immunity, metabolic health, and dealing in dystopia Mike's immunity stack for the "dark winter": Zinc (either OptiZinc or Zinc Bisglycinate) Quercetin (zinc ionophore, green tea extract could also work) - Mike uses ForestLeaf Quercetin Bromelain, which also has Vitamin C Olive leaf extract (cheap way to inhibit ACE2 docking) NAC Vitamin D and Vitamin C Bonus: Andrographis Bonus: Berberine / Dihydroberberine FDA Enforcement (or lack thereof?) Mike's biggest future concern is that the FDA is going to come after NAC, which spurred the immunity discussion and stack listed above. Ben's less concerned about that, though. The biggest "mistake" in this episode is Mike saying that they won't come after stimulants, and don't seem to be concerned about that. Except on literally the same day we recorded, they served Condemned Labz a warning letter! Stimulants and caffeine detoxes Mike's using way too much caffeine lately, but Ben's on a C-TOX from Glaxon.

#050: Doug Miller - Protein Prices on the Rise: Figuring it Out with CORE Nutritionals
Doug Miller and his team at CORE Nutritionals always find a way to figure it out Doug Miller of CORE Nutritionals, Merica Labz, Merica Energy, and Arms Race Nutrition joins up with Team PricePlow to discuss some hot news in the supplement industry - supply chain woes and the rising prices of protein - especially dairy protein. Since this was Doug's first time on the PricePlow Podcast, he gives a full introduction, with his background and entrance to the supplement industry. It all began with Core MRP, a meal replacement that didn't contain Maltodextrin (a very rare thing 15 years ago), and as Doug's bodybuilding career advanced, Core Nutritionals did as well. Then, we get into the meat of the conversation, which has to do with rising protein prices, and how the CORE team is responding to the issues in the supply chain: Video: Listen to Doug Miller discuss Core Nutritionals, supply chain, and protein prices https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ePB6L3n8CCo Audio Version Subscribe to the PricePlow Podcast on Your Favorite ServiceiTunesSpotify Google PodcastsSoundCloud "Figure it out" Beyond that, we also discuss CORE's move to North Carolina, how working with the team involves a lot of "figuring it out", and how everyone has to work multiple jobs until new full-time positions are made. Once prompted, Doug also explains the type of person he hires - he doesn't look for education or training, but a mentality. Core PRO Peanut Butter & Jelly is here, and it's strawberry jelly - the way it should be! Doug is incredibly open and honest in this episode, especially regarding the pricing issues, which many brands are hiding. He also makes it very clear that this was the option of last resort Finally, don't miss some of the discussion on pre workout supplements, where we discuss how much we've been liking the new Merica Labz Red, White, & BOOM.

#049: Dihydroberberine - A Better Berberine (Shawn Wells, NNB Nutrition)
One of the most popular dietary supplement ingredients on the planet -- especially in terms of metabolic health -- is berberine. Today we discuss a new ingredient that actually makes berberine obsolete. Berberine is a powerful plant alkaloid that improves the body's insulin response, with large amounts of scientific research showing significant improvements to insulin sensitivity, fasting glucose levels, HbA1c reduction, nutrient partitioning, and far more. It's even outperformed pharmaceutical drugs. Dihydroberberine: A Better Berberine. This article focuses specifically on the higher-bioavailability berberine metabolite, but you can always go back and read our original berberine article to learn more about the mechanisms. We've covered berberine in detail in the article linked above, ultimately finding that while it's the most impressive ingredient in any blood sugar supplement or glucose disposal agent, it has drawbacks, which include high doses required and GI distress. Both of those problems are solved with one of its derivatives that we specifically cover in this article: dihydroberberine. Think berberine is good? Take a look at dihydroberberine Research suggests that dihydroberberine is up to six times better than standard berberine, bringing incredible effects at lower doses -- and fewer side effects. In this article, we assume you have knowledge of berberine's effects (if not, you can see our berberine article linked above), but jump directly into discussion of this dihydro form. It's sold as GlucoVantage from NNB Nutrition, one of the supplement industry's most promising novel ingredient developers. In addition, we have a podcast episode and video with Shawn Wells, NNB Nutrition's Chief Science Officer who is a co-patent holder for dihydroberberine, which you can watch as well. Finally, you can try the ingredient on its own by looking at the PricePlow's dihydroberberine price comparisons below, and signing up for our NNB Nutrition news alerts: Dihydroberberine Supplements and NNB Nutrition NewsGet Price AlertsGet NNB Nutrition alertsGet Dihydroberberine price drops Also get hot deal alertsNo spam, no scams.Disclosure: PricePlow relies on pricing from stores with which we have a business relationship.

In fact, we've known for decades that when either blood glucose levels or insulin levels are elevated, fat oxidation significantly slows.[2,3] If these levels remain elevated for too long, we introduce insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia, which brings with it a myriad of diseases. Every time you eat carbohydrates, you stop burning fat! So why are you wasting time not driving the carbs into muscles? Improve insulin sensitivity and get back to burning fat, not sugar! Image courtesy @TedNaiman This isn't to say that we're against foods like carbohydrates that raise blood sugar (and insulin) levels, because we're not. Instead, it means that we need to get our carbs to where we want them (muscle tissue!) and get back to a fat-metabolizing state as soon as possible. Berberine, and to a greater extent, dihydroberberine, make that happen better and faster. We of course still recommend a healthy diet low in refined carbs and void of industrial processed seed oils high in omega-6. But with the above supplemental strategy (which is highlighted in our main berberine article), we can remain more insulin-sensitive, and less likely to be as toxic with sugar and insulin...

Dr. Dom is extremely excited to announce Revive MD is now providing blood tests for free to those with insurance and heavily discounted for those without insurance The video and audio feeds are below, with more show notes after that: Video: Watch Dr. Domenic Iacovone Talk About Revive MD's Future https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYoFRlk0MG4 Audio Version Subscribe to the PricePlow Podcast on Your Favorite ServiceiTunesSpotify Google PodcastsSoundCloud Revive MD is now offering free blood tests! More than just a supplement brand, Revive MD is one of the only fully franchised medical facilities in the world, and every facility has an MD, a nurse practitioner, and a full-time nurse. They go where your standard primary care office is afraid to go, and where some are afraid to ask. For instance, they're not just a company providing hormones, they offer a myriad of additional services beside hormone replacement such as non-surgical facelifts, stem cell therapy, IV vitamin therapy, weight loss hormone replacement therapy, and more. Dr. Domenic explains that they staff physical therapists, and chiropractors. Big on peptide therapy However, Revive MD does not push hormones heavily, and is very big on peptide therapy. They're also very big on non-controlled substances to push the body to do what it's naturally supposed to do in the first place. Revive MD is research and science driven, but they work with athletes, and are coming hard at the "legal performance enhancement" side of the game. Will Wallace hired on Welcome William Wallace to Revive MD, their new Chief Compliance & Formulations Officer As they're moving towards the future as an extremely unique company in the industry, Revive MD hired Will Wallace from Life Extension, who is worth his weight in gold. They continue to move very talented people to Florida, and Dr. Dom strives to ensure their entire business is built on education and intellectuals. Looking to the future, Dr. Dom wants to be better than a brick and mortar store, he wants to be a "Whole Foods" of his niche. He doesn't mind the brick and mortar model, but his vision for Revive MD is bigger than that. They are planning some very exciting things for the future and will release products to brick and mortar before they are released to the public. They also have a goal of supporting small businesses, which is critical in 2021. Additionally, Revive MD is working and collaborating with several professional athletes along with Will Wallace to bring out a big release that will be divulged at a later date. Supplements formulated to optimize your health! See them all on our Revive MD page on PricePlow.

#041: Dan Lourenco - The State of Supplements in Esports
Dan Lourenco joins us once again to discuss the state of supplements in esports (gaming supplements) In February of 2021, Dan Lourenco, co-founder and CEO of Ghost Lifestyle, jumped back on the PricePlow Podcast. Hot off the heels of episode #035, where he discussed updates to Ghost Energy, this was a far different episode talking about one thing only: supplements in esports, also known as "gaming supplements". Dan gives a world of credit to G-FUEL, the "OG" gaming supplement, but talks about the difference with Ghost Gamer, which uses the clinically-studied nootropic gaming ingredient, NooLVL from Nutrition21. What's great about NooLVL is that it's been studied on real gamers playing modern games, unlike other nootropic studies done on the elderly in cognitive decline. The conversation steers towards how gaming saved the mental sanity for so many in 2020, and in the business world, is becoming the modern and younger version of golfing for meetings. Video: Watch Dan talk about Gaming and Esports Supplements https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dxm-FVElSxQ Audio Version Subscribe to the PricePlow Podcast on Your Favorite ServiceiTunesSpotify Google PodcastsSoundCloud After a pivotal year for Ghost launching Gamer and partnering with XSET, Dan has a lot of momentum in the e-sports category.
