Sooo what’s difference?
SmartShake is proud to sponsor the best athletes in the bodybuilding and fitness industry. Our athletes hold a record
25 Mr and Miss Olympia Titles. Choose a cup that the top names in the industry endorse and use.
It comes with a plastic 4 way divider in the middle cup for supplements but I throw it out and use the 3rd cup for a scoop and a half of Vitargo!
The aluminum carabiner clip is not dishwasher safe and will get nasty, so I throw that out also!
I had a moral dilemma picking which cup I was going to pick!
Red and black is my favorite colors and I like Ronnie better than Phil!
So which cup should I get? In the end red and black won out! Because; I just did not like the blue!
Q: What is the good part about the lack of change?
A: All the parts are interchange! And dishwasher safe!
Sooo what’s the difference?
Not a whole hell of a lot! There’s nothing notable different! Buy V1 or V2 depending on the deal you get!

YogaToes® Toe Stretchers — Yoga For Your Feet
YogaToes® have revolutionized the way we care for our feet. YogaToes® provide simple and natural therapy for painful toes and achy feet. Fighting foot pain and toe deformities now could save you from health complications (and expensive surgeries) down the road.
Being in shoes or high heels all day can really take a toll on your feet. Luckily, by placing toes in a separated position, weakened muscles become more flexible and resilient. After using YogaToes® regularly, the joints in your toes should begin to realign as tissues become supple and strong again. Realignment and greater mobility are the main components in fending off pain as well as a variety of other conditions, including claw toes and hammer toes.
How YogaToes Work
YogaToes® toe stretchers work by spreading and exercising toes. The patented design of YogaToes® fits between, above and beneath toes to gently spread them apart and away from the balls of your feet – providing the same exercise you get when barefoot. All you do is put them on. YogaToes do the work while you relax. A vacation for your feet!
We recommend starting slowly, only wearing YogaToes® for 10-15 minutes a day. Once that begins to feel comfortable, gradually work up to wearing YogaToes® at least 1 hour per day.
Bunion, Claw and Hammer Toes Treatment
Foot and toe problems can’t be looked at in isolation, and that’s why we invented YogaToes®. We introduced an important new concept to the world: preventative foot care. But many people wonder about specific foot problems; Bunions (and bunionettes), claw toes, hammer toe and Plantar Fasciitis always come up. And the answer is ‘yes’, Yoga Toes help prevent and treat this short list as well as a much longer one that wouldn’t fit on this page. Our toe stretchers get at the root cause of these conditions.
Tried, Tested, and Loved!
YogaToes® are meant to benefit most anyone — and indeed we’ve gotten positive feedback from diverse groups of people over the years: busy mothers, professionals who are on their feet all day, physical therapists, construction workers… you name it.
YogaToes® toe stretchers were featured on the The New Ricki Lake Show as a natural pain relief gadget and on The Today Show as a “fan favorite”.
Recently, we found out that the pop singer Sia is a big fan of our toe straighteners as well as many ballerinas in The Washington Ballet. Can you think of anyone who depends on their toes and feet more than a ballerina? We can’t. So, what are you waiting for? Don’t live with swollen and achy feet one more day. Instead, start having stronger and more beautiful feet with YogaToes®!
They hurt bad this morning! But I have to tell you, after running 2 hrs today they feel really good right now!
I’m going to try for an hour if I feel discomfort, I will abort the test!
**Update** September 19th I haven’t worn the yoga toes in about 2 weeks and the plantar fasciitis flared up again so I will try and wear them a little tonight and tomorrow and see how it works! Not bad considering I am still doing 2 hrs of cardio a day!

The Human Effect Matrix looks at human studies (excluding animal/petri-dish studies) to tell you what effect Mucuna pruriens has in your body, and how strong these effects are.

B Sperm Quality
See all 3 studies
There appears to be an increase in seminal quality and oxidative parameters following 3-month ingestion of Mucuna pruriens, which is thought to be secondary to correcting
the hypothalamic-pituitary-testes axis
C Symptoms of Parkinsons Disease
See all 3 studies
Possible symptoms reduction in Parkinson’s Disease related to the L-DOPA content and theorized (but not proven) peripheral dopamine decarboxylase inhibitor; this is notable … show
The decrease in adrenaline seen in infertility is normalized with mucuna
In chronically stressed men, prolonged ingestion of mucuna pruriens appears to be able to reduce cortisol concentrations
The reduction in dopamine seen in infertility seems to be reversed with L-DOPA ingestion; theoretically L-DOPA ingestion should unilaterally increase dopamine
The reduction in noradrenaline levels seen in infertility is normalized following mucuna ingestion
See 2 studies
A decrease in prolactin appears to occur following Mucuna or L-DOPA ingestion
C Seminal Motility
See 2 studies
An increase in seminal motility is observed following mucuna ingestion
C Subjective Well-Being
An increase in well being has been noted to be secondary to a reduction in cortisol
See 2 studies
An increase in testosterone is seen in infertile men. It is unsure if this increase in testosterone occurs in fertile and otherwise healthy men
In modern medicine, theobromine is used as a vasodilator (a blood vessel widener), a diuretic (urination aid), and heart stimulant.
Theobromine increases urine production. Because of this diuretic effect, and its ability to dilate blood vessels, theobromine has been used to treat high blood pressure. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition notes that historic use of theobromine as a treatment for other circulatory problems including arteriosclerosis, certain vascular diseases, angina pectoris, and hypertension should be considered in future studies.
Following its discovery in the late 19th century, theobromine was put to use by 1916, when it was recommended by the publication Principles of Medical Treatment as a treatment for edema (excessive liquid in parts of the body), syphilitic angina attacks, and degenerative angina.
In the human body, theobromine levels are halved between 6–10 hours after consumption.
Possible future uses of theobromine in such fields as cancer prevention have been patented.
Theobromine also shows promise in tooth decay prevention and has been shown in some studies to surpass the more traditional fluoride. Advantages include the ability to safely ingest it, obviating the “do not swallow” warnings on fluoride mouthwash.
**Note** That would explain why I have peed at least 25 times today and counting! I thought it was because I have drank a lot of water and I have been working out, but it is definitely this!
Benefits of AMP Citrate
As mentioned earlier, AMP has the same basic structure to DMAA which is why its effects are parallel to DMAA. These include:
An increase in energy (especially when combined with caffeine)
Heightened mental focus
Increase in athletic performance
Try this stuff it made me feel amazing all morning! For the last two days I have felt bulletproof!

First off where’s the mint? I’m not talking about the mint green colored pieces in the bar; I’m talking about the flavor! It’s not there at all!! I originally thought it would be sickening sweet, but it’s the opposite! It also has the same dryer consistency as the Smores bar. I don’t know if that’s their new formula? But it’s not working for the mint chunk! The Smores is awesome and tastes great!
Stay away from this bar it’s nasty!

I wish I would have read the reviews on Amazon before I purchased this ball! The center of gravity is way off! The sand is at the base of the ball throwing off the entire ball! I originally thought that the sand settled during shipping, but soon realized it was a flaw in construction! It makes the ball super awkward and almost useless! If you throw the ball a little off center, it spins wildly out of control and throws you off balance which makes you quit when you are tired in fear of injuring yourself rather than squeeze out a few extra reps!
I really want to kick myself for not buying a Dynamax ball!
Gofit you should definitely make a product recall and fix the problem and help you loyal customers! Save face and keep the reputation of your company and fix the problem! This ball sucks!

I like the shoes they are helping relieve my Plantar Faciitis as my forefoot hits before my heels, but they aren’t magical! I am still in pain, just not excruciating.
