For those of you that have not tried Agmatine, it is one of the best nutritional supplements we have seen. Agmatine is a byproduct of Arginine that is produced through a process called decarboxylation. It is basically Arginine with the carboxylic acid end removed. It basically does everything that Argnine was purported to do but has failed to deliver. Most notably, it is a great vasodilator and helps increase both growth and luteinizing hormone levels. Many people will use it with beta alanine and Citrulline Malate to create their own pre-workout mix. To read more about this supplement, here is a good article about agmatine on bodybuilding.com.
Whey concentrate pricing is anticipated to drop about 5-10% by the end of the year but Isolate pricing is expected to remain about the same as demand continues to grow internationally. Hopefully, whey isolate prices will eventually come down but the good news is that it is not projected to increase.
I wanted to touch briefly on how we ship orders to avoid any confusion. We ship about 95% of all the orders we receive by 2:00 PM on the day the order was placed. We use a combination of Fedex, USPS, and SmartPost (a combination of FedEx and the USPS) to deliver orders. This allows us to only charge a flat rate of $6.95 per order. Generally, light weight orders (under 2lbs) ship via the USPS and orders between 2 and 9 pounds will ship via SmartPost or FedEx. Orders over this weight almost always ship via FedEx Ground. Even using these services, our average shipping cost run over $11.00 per package.
For our international customers, we ship internationally through “International Checkout.” Just hit the International Checkout icon when you checkout. We use them for security purposes and because they get better shipping rates. On international orders, usually the shipping deals get better as you add more products; their rates are a little high for small orders. Unfortunately, you cannot use our coupons through this service, as any coupon we have in place are used by them and the savings are used to lower your shipping cost.
