I don’t know about you, but I am tired of the never ending Facebook ads I come across everyday about the the latest bodybuilding formula that promise instant results. This morning I saw an about some killer combo that will get me ripped fast. By clicking the ad link I land on a website with these headlines:
“Lean muscle in a bottle? Get 6 pack abs in just one month with these two muscle supplements that celebrities use!
Apparently, the flavor of the day is Alpha Genix and Pure Muscle Pro. The combo is touted to be the secret weapon for celebrities like Daniel Craig and the 300 Spartan Warrior, Gerard Butler. Besides, the website looks very similar to official Men’s Health website.
So the question is: should you try Alpha Genix and Pure Muscle Pro? After all, the free trials are available. You have nothing to lose do you?
But wait.. there are a couple of problems with Alpha Genix and Pure Muscle Pro:
#1. Beware of the free trials scam: according to this “Men’s Health” website, the free trials supposedly would only charge you few dollars for shipping. But if you pay attention to the fine prints or “terms and conditions”, it states that by entering your credit card information, you agree to participate in autoship program. If you don’t cancel your subscriptions after a certain time, you are going to be charged continuously without fail, whether you want it or not. Most people would miss the fine print as it’s usually buried at the bottom of the webpage – designed to be overlooked! Most often than not, it’s very hard to stop the recurring billing and get your money back.
Please note that I am not trying to say the maker behind Alpha Genix and Pure Muscle Pro is scammer. However, I urge you to be extra careful with these free trials offers. Think about it: the trial period is usually very short (few days to two weeks). Do you think you have enough time to access the effectiveness of the products?
#2. At first glance, the website that featured Alpha Genix and Pure Muscle Pro looks like it’s official website of Men’s Health, here ‘s an example:
Now let’s get something straight: it is NOT the official website of Men’s Health! This fraudulent website is designed to exploit Men’s Health brand. The editor of actual Men’s Health magazine had made it very clear that they do not endorse any of the product featured. The only place they will ever promote supplements is through the official Men’s Health store at menshealthstore.co.uk
#3. According to the advertising claims, Alpha Genix and Pure Muscle Pro “are clinically proven to flush out the toxins in your body, melt away body fat and pack on tons of muscle.” So.. where’s the proof? To date, there’s no clinical evidence to back up the claims.
#4. Here’s another outrageous claim: “Even celebrities like Daniel Craig and Gerard Butler have lost a ton of body fat and added an insane amount of muscle using these two products.”
Again, where’s the proof? Daniel Craig and Gerard Butler have not endorsed any supplement. So how do these celebrities shape up? Quite simply, it’s through intense workout and proper diet. Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying.
Additionally, the “staff reporter” of the website, Bryan Stevens said Alpha Genix and Pure Muscle Pro help him to gain 9.5kg of muscle in 4 weeks. This is totally bogus! All scientific studies say the average amount of lean muscle you can naturally gain is 2lb (about 0.9 kg) /month !
#5. False scarcity: the free trials are said to be limited, and the offer expires today. Interestingly, the expiry date changes everyday. Everyday is the last day!
So what’s the bottom line?
I heartily recommend you to avoid Alpha Genix and Pure Muscle Pro.
