Labrada Super Charge = waste of money

I bought some Super Charge to help with my work-outs in the gym and on rides. The bottle recommends taking 1 scoop for intense work-outs, and two scoops for super intense workouts. I took two. I went to the gym and didn't feel a single thing! I came home afterwards and fell asleep! This stuff is complete crap!

Heh heh... does it grow your hair back too, or is that really just female hair growth hormone?

Tried a Labrada protein bar once - nearly threw up.

I was orginally going to try NO-Xplode, but the guy at Vitamin Shoppe said customers had better results with the Super Charge.

No-explode is a waste of your money too, by the way.

Pretty cheap lesson, if you learn from it.

My dad uses this stuff when he goes to the gym in the morning, and it works great for him, go figure! I gave it another try on Wednesday before I went to work. I didn't feel a thing, seems like I would have at least felt the caffine.

Nothing, it is nothing.

Embryonic = immature, unfinished, undeveloped
Peptide = small proteins
Matrix = aggregate

So, it is a gamish of undeveloped proteins..???? I don't know what that means.
