Week 4 with GPN

This week has been extremely slow in the office. Most of the execs are out visiting at client headquarters preparing for our big mid-summer meeting that is coming up soon. This has left me at the office with not a lot to do except look around the internet for news in the industry. One big thing that has happened lately is the reintroduction of DMAA or 1-3 dimethylamyamine. Many people may know this ingredient from the Jack3d original formula that was removed from the market in 2012 after it was linked to three high profile deaths of soldiers. It has been confirmed recently that DMAA was not responsible for the deaths. The reintroduction of this ingredient is going to change the landscape of the performance supplement world as millions of people will seek it out to add to their regimen. Our company is not going to use this ingredient at the time being because our biggest clients (i.e. GNC, Bodybuilding.com, and Vitamin Shoppe) have made it clear to us that they do not want to sell the products.
