What was the Muscletech lawsuit all about? Well if you did not know [clickToTweet tweet=”Protein spiking involves manipulating the protein content by adding amino acids, glycine and taurine.” quote=”Protein spiking involves manipulating the protein content by adding amino acids, glycine and taurine.”] This allows them to add less whey protein fo example and more cheap amino acids. This is a dirty supplement trick and anyone with a brain should not trust any company that protein spikes.
On November 9th 2015 Muscletech settled to pay 2.5 million dollars for a protein spiking lawsuit. They also have to take out banner advertisements on muscle and fitness websites and Facebook offering refunds to people who purchased the products.
I think this will open the door for a lot of other protein spiking lawsuits that are active right now. We shall see.
