I for one now have a memory like an elephant, supercharged "equipment," sleep 14 hours a night/day, skin so clear it's nearly transparent, no more wrinkles, all my savings in gold coins, extraordinary bedsheets from Giza, a pillow from heaven, and joints like a biomechanoid. At least, that is my impression.

Prevegen and Balance of Nature. In my view they both make outrageous claims.

I suppose I’m especially irked as I’m in the targeted demographic.
Yes, but…suppose for a moment you were to take both. Hmm?

I thought the claims the "memory" supplements make on the tube were illegal, being that they don't have any medical proof....

the supplement and drug industry commercials dominate the airwaves....

I'm ad free here. I frequent crash.net for racing news. There has been a video ad for the new Nissan Ariya that has been playing over every picture in every article for the last few days.

So, at this point, I am so irritated that I will never purchase an Ariya, much less a Nissan. So how effective was that ad?

...and back to our regularly scheduled discussion...

Howdy M....

Ha....I hear you.
Personally, I think the supplement industry (cosmetic industry too) are huge scams that excel in making false claims with slick marketing ads.....a waste of buckaroos.

But, that's just me. :)

Carry on....

The Balance of Nature ads are hilarious. "It's near the end of the day and I haven't had my fruits and vegetables". Who as every said that? How much nutritional value can be left after the fruits and vegetables have been pulverized down to a fine powder?
