Muscle-Building ‘Stack’ Banned from GNC; Critics Say It’s Legal Steroids

Athletes Say It’s a Safe Alternative to Steroids — But Should It Be Banned?

Clay Sullivan of Boston, MA, gained 20 pounds of muscle and cut his bodyfat percentage in half using the controversial muscle-building system.

A new muscle-building system containing an array of adaptogenic “growth factors” is the hottest thing going in amateur athletics — but not without controversy.

Critics say the compounds in this controversial, new supplement system branded as the “Pro Series Muscle Stack” — now banned from the popular sports-nutrition retailer GNC — give athletes an “unfair advantage” and their use should be prohibited by athletes. 

Proponents argue research shows the compounds to be both safe and effective and that banning the natural compounds is like trying to prohibit athletes from consuming creatine, which is also isolated from natural sources.

One thing people on both sides can agree on is the controversial, new supplement works. According to a recent study published in the journal Medicine & Science & Sports and Medicine, novice weight trainers who took these compounds for seven weeks experienced a 600% increase in lean muscle growth, including a 9-fold increase in biceps girth.

Fair Game or Unfair Advantage?

Word-of-mouth marketing has led to the Pro Series Muscle Stack rivaling creatine and pre-workout nitric oxide (NO2) supplements as the most popular natural performance-enhancers in amateur athletic locker rooms.

However, critics say the compounds in this system too closely mimic the effects of anabolic steroids and that their use should be prohibited by athletes. 

To be sure, steroids, similar to these compounds, work in large part by minimizing the catabolic effects of cortisol, allowing for greater amino acid uptake, nitrogen retention, and protein synthesis.

Many sports scientists, however, say the compounds are a viable alternative to dangerous performance-enhancing drugs. They point to the fact that these compounds are isolated from natural food sources, and are therefore no different, ethically, from high-carbohydrate food mixes for aerobic athletes. Besides, they say research has shown them to be medically safe and that we should emphasize that the alternative to these natural compounds is steroids.

Jason Wilkinson of Houston, Texas, says he added 90 pounds to his bench press in 30 days using the controversial muscle-builder now banned from GNC.

Whether or not using the Pro Series Muscle Stack constitutes “cheating” doesn’t concern the thousands of athletes and fitness buffs using it.

Francis Nadeu of Red Lion, PA, writes: “The Pro Series Muscle Stack has given me significant gains over the last 3 months. I would recommend this supplement to anyone. I have pictures of myself from 3 months ago until just last week. My gains have been significant. Using this product has taken my gains off the charts.”

“With other supplements I’ve used, I thought I could ‘kinda sorta’ notice a difference, but this is ridiculous. The Pro Series Muscle Stack is the first supplement I’ve used where I could actually notice vivid gains in muscle size. After my first 30-day ‘cycle,’ I’ve packed on over 16 pounds of muscle, and my strength has literally gone through the roof.”

Francis Nadeu of Red Lion, PA, gained 20 pounds of muscle and added 90 pounds to his bench press in 30 days.

Another believer is Ustundal Hakan Gürdöl from Istanbul, Turkey. “My results have been incredible using the Pro Series Muscle Stack. I get people asking if I am taking PEDs … 30 days in and my body has completely transformed. I’ve gained 15 pounds of muscle and my squat and bench press strength has increased substantially. I’m starting to look like a bodybuilder!”

Does the Pro Series Muscle Stack deliver “steroid-like” muscle-growth effects? Well, judge for yourself. While the supplement stack is currently banned from GNC, a limited number of stacks are available by the supplement’s official manufacturer, TeamANR, online here.

The website offers a 100% risk-free trial of the product, with each serving working out to be just about $3.20 a day — less than what you’d spend on a fast-food value meal at McDonald’s. What’s more, each order is a one-time-only transaction. In other words, there are no reoccurring charges or hidden offers.
