PricePlow Podcast Episode Listing:

  1. #075: Todd Spear & Katie Emerson: Nutrition21 at SupplySide West 2022

    November 3, 2022:

    Todd Spear and Katie Emerson of Nutrition21 on the PricePlow Podcast

    Todd Spear and Katie Emerson of Nutrition21 join the PricePlow Podcast at SupplySide West 2022 to talk research, trends, nitric oxide supplements, and more!

    It’s that time of year again – SupplySide West in Las Vegas. Ben and Mike sit down with Nutrition21’s Todd Spear (Sports Nutrition Category Leader) and Katie Emerson (Manager of Scientific Affairs) to discuss the latest research and industry trends coming out of both the industry at large and Nutrition21’s team.

    There are some spirited conversations about Nitrosigine vs. citrulline, chromium, our mineral-deficient food supply, collagen, and where we’d like to see the research go.

    The beginning of the conversation is Nitrosigine / nooLVL heavy for the nitric oxide side, but the latter half is heavier on Velositol / Chromax chromium, making for a fun and balanced conversation.

  2. #074: Brent Laffey: Armada Nutrition – History and Manufacturing Expansion

    Brent Laffey Armada Nutrition

    Brent Laffey joins PricePlow Podcast Episode #074 to talk about Armada Nutrition’s history and their manufacturing expansion!

    November 1, 2022:

    Brent Laffey of Armada Nutrition — a premier contract supplement manufacturer — re-joins the PricePlow Podcast to talk about Armada’s expansion. Armada is well-known for producing some of the world’s most popular supplements in their highly-acclaimed Tennessee facility, but now they’re expanding with an even larger facility in Salt Lake City, Utah.

    This is an incredibly informative episode for any supplement user or entrepeneur, highlighting how to do things the right way — a stark difference from episode #027, where we last invited Brent on the podcast to discuss the ABH Pharma indictment / scandal.

  3. #073: Patrick Mabe – Crushin’ It at The Tactical Games with Core and Merica

    October 13, 2022:

    Patrick Mabe on The PricePlow Podcast

    Patrick Mabe of CORE Nutritionals, Merica Labz, and Merica Energy joins us to discuss his recent competition in the Tactical Games, his new entrance to fatherhood, and living the Crush It Lifestyle in North Carolina!

    This was a great follow-up to The Boss Status Episode 8, where Patrick and Doug Miller interviewed Mike and Ben – now the tables are turned and we get to hear Patrick’s backstory and new path.

    We also get into manhood and bringing men together, alcohol, Patrick’s kit, and more!

  4. #072: Raza Bashir & Shawn Wells – MuscleTech enfinity Paraxanthine Launch

    MuscleTech enfinity Paraxanthine Explained

    MuscleTech’s Raza Bashir and Ingenious Ingredients (and NNB Nutrition CSO) Shawn Wells join the PricePlow Podcast to talk about MuscleTech’s new iQ Series launch, using enfinity Paraxanthine!

    September 12, 2022:

    Raza Bashir of MuscleTech and Shawn Wells of Ingenious Ingredients (and NNB Nutrition) join the PricePlow Podcast to discuss enfinity paraxanthine in the MuscleTech iQ Series!

    Paraxanthine is the primary metabolite of caffeine, and they’re using it as a caffeine replacement. After lots of testing, the end result is a smoother, cleaner experience, thanks to the reduction of other metabolites and pathway shit.

    Shawn (a repeat guest on this podcast) talks about the history and biochemistry of caffeine, while Raza explains how MuscleTech formulated their new iQ Series supplements (EuphoriQ and Burn iQ) using it.

  5. #071: Justin Weeks (Europa Sports) & Ike Ikalina (Alpha Prime Supps) – Distribution and Purple Velvet Prime Bites Protein Brownies

    August 23, 2022:

    AP Prime Bites Protein Brownie Purple Velvet Europa Sports

    Alpha Prime Supps and Europa Sports partnered for an exclusive Purple Velvet flavor of the incredibly popular AP Prime Bites Protein Brownie, so we interview Justin Weeks (Director of Sales at Europa Sports Products) and Ike Ikalina (Vice President at Alpha Prime).

    In this episode of the podcast, we talk about this Europa-exclusive Protein Brownie flavor, the state of distribution, the overall economy and ongoing labor shortage, some examples of the costs of shipping cans / RTDs, and riding out the 2020/2021 storm as a distributor that works so closely with stores and gyms that were subjected to tyrannical and unconstitutional lockdowns (our words, not theirs).

    This is a great episode to get a behind-the-scenes and “feet on the street” view of the industry, and we hope to have Justin on a couple times a year to keep up to speed.

  6. #070: The Maximus Lover Protocol: Dr. Cameron Sepah Boosts Libido

    Dr. Cameron Sepah | The Maximus Lover Protocol

    Dr. Cameron Sepah is back on the PricePlow Podcast to introduce The Maximus Lover Protocol

    July 19, 2022:

    Dr. Cameron Sepah of Maximus (introduced in episode #062 below) returns to the PricePlow Podcast returns to the PricePlow Podcast to discuss the Maximus Lover Protocol: 5mg tadalafil and 2mg PT-141 / Bremelanotide!

    This is yet another incredible, must-listen episode where we discuss libido, sexual health, and optimizing male performance and mindset. The Maximus Lover Protocol employs two synergistic drugs that work on separate parts of the body to boost both libido and performance. Yet another incredible, real-deal conversation.

    Just like enclomiphene opened a lot of eyes in #062, Bremelanotide (PT-141) will do the same for many where typical ED drugs alone are not the most optimal solution.

  7. #069: Chris Waldrum #2 – Chris Explains it ALL

    July 2022:

    We won’t go into details here, but we’ll just say that this is a must-listen episode if you want to get to know Chris, Mike, and Ben a bit closer.

  8. #068: Matt Karich of Soul Performance Nutrition: Build Supplements Like an Engineer

    May 26, 2022:

    Meet Matt Karich, an engineer who’s putting his talents to use in the dietary supplement industry, with refreshingly unique, third-party tested formulas at Soul Performance Nutrition.

  9. #067: The NPA is Fighting Dick Durbin’s 2022 Supplement Bill (S.4090)

    Natural Products Association vs. Dick Durbin S.4090

    A bill (S.4090) introduced by Senator Dick Durbin would require pre-approval from the FDA for all dietary supplements. The Natural Products Association (NPA) is fighting back.

    April 28, 2022:

    A bill (S.4090) introduced by Senators Dick Durbin (IL) and Mike Braun (IN) would require PRE-APPROVAL from the FDA for all dietary supplements. Led by Dan Fabricant, Joe Weiss, and Doug Kalman, The Natural Products Association (NPA) is fighting back.

    This is an incredible conversation, and it details a horrible bill that’s been pushed forward by two senators that would devastate the dietary supplement industry as we know it.

    Additionally, we get into reforms that the FDA could partake, but most of it comes in the form of actually enforcing existing laws!

    Listen, read the complete bill (and see how it sneakily accompomplishes a “pre-approval” requirement), and take action inside!

  10. #066: Dan Lourenco & Ryan Hughes #2 – GHOST x TMNT and the Future of Collabs

    Ghost TMNT and the Future of Supplement Collabs

    Dan Lourenço and Ryan Hughes of Ghost invite Team PricePlow to Chicago to launch the TMNT Collab, and talk about the future of collabs on the PricePlow Podcast

    April 18, 2022:

    Dan Lourenço and Ryan Hughes of Ghost invite Team PricePlow to Chicago to launch the TMNT Collab, and talk about the future of collabs on the PricePlow Podcast. For supplement industry fans, this is a must-listen episode, all powered by Ghost Energy.

    This conversation (along with our other antics) gets featured on Ghost’s hit Building The Brand episode (S8:E27) named “Turtle Power”, where we got to participate in “mailtime”, doming a scoop (or two) of the new OOZE flavor, and celebrating in this launch.

  11. #065: Alpha Lion 2022 Update with Drew Peters

    April 8, 2022:

    Drew Peters is now the formulator for Alpha Lion, so we cover some of their supplements launched in early 2022 like SuperHuman Sport, a very unique low-caffeine sports-based pre-workout supplement that includes NNB Nutrition’s RhodioPrime 6X, and SuperHuman Scorch, a thermogenic L-carnitine liquid with some extra heat from CaloriBurn GP grains of paradise extract.

  12. #064: Dr. Hector Lopez explains how NutraShure’s SmartPrime-Om will amplify your omegas

    Dr. Hector Lopez Explains Nutrashure's SmartPrime-OM technology

    SmartPrime-OM is a new omega-3 amplifying dietary supplement from Nutrashure, so we interview Dr. Hector Lopez to understand how it boosts EPA/DHA!

    March 30, 2022:

    SmartPrime-OM is a novel omega-3 amplifying dietary supplement from Nutrashure, a company run by Brandon Sojka. We interviewed Dr. Hector Lopez and Brandon to understand how it boosts EPA/DHA levels, and the conversation is fascinating.

    SmartPrime is designed to “help turn on the metabolic machinery” that’s downregulated in PUFA hyper-metabolizers, helping prevent their metabolisms from over-utilizing the inflammatory omega-6 pathway, yet simultaneously leaving the omega-3 pathway open. This improve the overall omega-3:omega-6 ratio – especially if you combine SmartPrime with a high-quality fish oil supplement.

  13. #063: Ben Hartman of Morphogen Nutrition #2: The Morphogen Rebrand

    February 21, 2022:

    In February 2022, PricePlow brough Ben Hartman of Morphogen Nutrition back to explain his updated formulas and rebranded tubs. One topic of conversation is the ultra-high 10 grams of tyrosine in his new Alphagen Pre-Workout. We also learn about the incredibly-dosed Morphocalm supplement as well, which contains very high doses of phosphatidylserine (a pretty expensive ingredient) along with RhodioPrime 6X Rhodiola, making for a very powerful cortisol-controlling supplement.

    Ben takes us through some of Morphogen’s history, his big way of thinking, and why now is the time to give Morphogen the labels that the brand has always deserved.

  14. #062: MAXIMUS: Testosterone Enhancement with Dr. Cameron Sepah

    Dr. Cameron Sepah Maximus PricePlow Podcast

    Meet Dr. Cameron Sepah, founder of Maximus, whose here to help you boost testosterone in a clinically-meaningful way without TRT. Prepare to learn a ton about enclomiphene in this episode!

    February 2, 2022:

    World-class psychologist and endocrine specialist turned entrepreneur Dr. Cameron Sepah joins the PricePlow Podcast to introduce us to his new business, Maximus, which is a consumer telemedicine company for men’s health and hormone optimization that’s set to compete and beat TRT for most men.

    In this fascinating episode, we cover the state of men’s declining hormonal health over the past two generations, learning many of the things that cause them and what can be done to limit the damage. Maximus employs the KING protocol, which includes a prescription of the SERM enclomiphene, adjunct supplements (A, D, E, K, and GG), health coaching, and an online community known as the Maximus Tribe.

    This will be most listener’s introduction to enclomiphene, which is the estrogen-blocking isomer of clomid that’s safer and more effective in men, and is a drug we’ll be covering in greater detail over time.

  15. #061: 2021 Supplement Industry Awards

    January, 2022:

    2021 Supplement Industry Awards

    Mike and Ben get together to discuss the supplement industry awards for 2021. We ran a few less categories this year, with no product-related awards:

    • Brand of the Year
    • Innovator of the Year
    • MVP of the Year (a person)
    • Breakout Brand of the Year
    • Brand to watch for in 2022

    In general, 2021 was a continuation of 2020, only with added supply chain wrinkles. The brands that were best prepared for 2020 were similarly well-prepared for 2021. Unfortunately, it’s a poor time for a new brand to be forming — but there’s one in particular we’re very excited about.

  16. #060: TJ Humphreys Joins Nic Stella at RYSE Supps | PPP #060

    January 4, 2022:

    In this interview, we learn about some of NuLiv’s other ingredients (such as Zylaria, Acteolin, and their “Prime” line of mushrooms), and talk about Gerhard’s contributions to their growing social media presence. We also get into the differences in worldviews across the supplement industry in different geographies, since the team had just finished its travel to Germany, a nation seeing a major cultural “resurgence” recently.

They focus on the upcoming Pre-Kaged Elite product launch, talk about history, some of the great formulas launched in 2021 (see also episode #047 on this page), and even give us an update on Kris Gethin (episode #012).

    By the looks of it, 2022 is going to be a huge hear for Kaged.

  19. #057: Glaxon Goon Day – Michael Bischoff & Joey Savage

    Glaxon Goon Day Podcast

    The Glaxon Goon Day Podcast episode was one for the ages!

    November 11, 2021:

    This was filmed on Glaxon’s second birthday, also known as GOON DAY! We celebrate with an EPIC podcast with CEO Michael Bischoff and Formulator / Chief Science Officer Joey Savage.

    In this, they gave us a sampling of their new protein powder, and we dove deep into the supplement industry, science, ongoing scams, mushrooms (“both” kinds), what made the original Specimen pre workout so strong and how Joey can improve Specimen G.F.Y, and of course, our obligatory arguments about beta alanine.

    We discuss several topics shown in the videos below. They mostly revolve around the FDA’s supplement industry regulations, Mark’s creation of the NutraBio company and brand, and how he complies with the letter of the law.

    The plant tour videos shown below are omitted from the audio feed, but note that those videos are now out of date since NutraBio has scaled operations up. Time to get back over to NJ!

    This audio feed was based upon several videos that are linked above.

  53. #008: Robert Tauler: The Lawyer Who Sued Enhanced Athlete

    In February of 2018, Mike interviewed Robert Tauler of the Tauler Smith LLP law firm in Los Angeles, CA. Tauler Smith represented Nutrition Distribution LLC, the company that was suing Enhanced Athlete over SARMs and DNP. This YouTube video was one of the most engaging podcasts ever – just check the comments!

    Much has happened since then, but needless to say, there are definitely far fewer readily-available SARMs and DNP on the market now.

    It’s almost like going back in time and watching a dirty boxing match right as things are spiraling out of control!

    Legendary supplement formulator Bruce Kneller visits Texas in early 2018 to make a major career announcement, doses us with his new stimulant (still not out as of January 2021), and drops a monster load of information on the world, with several hot topics on various ingredient compounds (some compliant, some not).

    We also discuss how to Market to Millennials and the future of GNC.

    There are eight videos – click the link above to see them on their separate post.

    Todd Spear of Nutrition 21 explains what VELOSITOL is, and he and Mike have a discussion about the high-end compounds he and his team have been developing and researching.
