    • The "Premier Quality Effect" - We believe that premier nutrients (exquisitely well-grown and free of undesirable tagalongs), when they are combined together, their effect is far greater than the sum of their individual benefits. Premier products are the result of our relentless search to find not only the best grown phytonutrients worldwide, but also those with premier energetic properties.

    • No Tagalongs - You will never find artificial flavorings, colors or preservatives in our products. Magnesium stearate is a questionable and undesirable agent that is often used and we have eliminated it from our manufacturing process. Talcum powder is often used as a filler and flow agent; it is a suspected carcinogen and will never be found in our products.

Does GNC Super Bowl Ad Rejection Show NFL Supplement Bias?

Companies drop around US$5 million to secure a 30-second spot during the big game and splash out more cash to develop and produce a special advertisement for the more than 100 million people who watch the Super Bowl.

In the media, GNC has said the NFL rejected the ad because the supplement retailer sells products with two substances banned by the league—DHEA and synephrine are both legal dietary ingredients but remain on the banned substance lists of many sporting bodies. However, in other reports, GNC and the NFL were attributed with saying the rejection was due to a league policy prohibiting any dietary supplement ad from airing during the game.

In various media outlets, GNC has said it received no advanced notice on the ad rejection and might have considered removing the two supplements from its store shelves to preserve its Super Bowl ad. Jeff Hennion, GNC’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer, has said the products comprise less than 3 percent of the company’s offerings.
