LACK OF INVESTMENT IN NEW PRODUCTS BY UK COMPANIES

Why is it that the likes of Reflex , Maximuscle etc very rarely come out with a new product
The American market leaves the British standing.
As an example , a product like Glycobol could be made over here The ingredients are easily obtainable.
 
With the 2012 olympics just around the corner ,i was expecting a new range of supplements for the  UK market
 
When 5-methoxyflavone is touted as a muscle builder, i think its time to move on.

    Because they stick with simply striving to improve solid products that have science and years of research behind them, without having to make inflated claims only to have negative return when the product subsequently gets slated or banned?
     
    Not a dig at you just my opinion on the question posed

    Very simple, legislation!

    It neigh on impossible to bring a new ingredient to the euro/uk Market.

    As an example due to legislation we now have to stop manufacturing milk thistle, tribulus, etc as of 30th April!

    Not wasting time on wild and speculative supps with little evidence? Yes that would be my first guess.
     
    The US market is certanly the field leader in hyperbole and full page adds in muscle mags :)
     
    Off course restrictive legislation helps, but maybe its not allways a bad thing?

    Id also hazard a guess that the American market is far more impressionable than the UK/Euro markets.
     
    Personally speaking, im sick of seeing new fangled supps come out claiming to be the dogs doodads which are nothing more than some ground up herbs in s capsule/tablet and pimped to high heaven in a bid to make easy money. Lets face it, BB'ers are a great market to get into for supplements. Look at how many scrambled for some so called "natural test boosters" and wasted quite a bit of money on something which isnt proven to work to any real degree.

    WTF is that I just started using tribulus and use milk thistle quite a lot, both appear to be completely harmless from what I've read.  
     
    If UKIP don't win the next election and liebour do, it's time to move country.

    So how will this version hyperbull stack up to the hyperbull I take twice weekly direct from its source. Is not this pure form better than the processed version you intend to sell? I guess the only draw back to the pure form I take is the suppository nature of the uploading system :)

    Many of those fancy looking US products are actually not compliant here in the UK , If the MHRA gets its act togerther as it is promising many of these will disappear anyway , Yes we have to stop supplying Trib to the trade from April 30th and I believe several other products such as Milk Thistle ,which we dont supply are going as well , I think you will still be able to get them from retail for a while depending how much the retailers stock up
     
    BTW we have 10 products in development I hardly call that a lack of investment .

    Pretty much every pre-workout/test booster product from the US does not meet UK legislation but they still readily available for re-sale. Its very frustrating as a brand to see this.
