Oh just great. Yet another celebrity athlete hawking yet another dubious (probably worthless) “nutritional” supplement.
antabloc.com is so proud of their product they don’t list the ingredients.
GNC does however list the ingredients:
Vitamin A (as Retinyl Acetate) 417.00 IU
Vitamin D3 (as cholecalciferol) 33.00 IU 8%
Anatabine (as anatabine citrate) 1.00 mg **
** Daily Value (DV) not established
Other Ingredients: Mannitol, Natural and Artificial Mint Flavors, Sucralose, Silicon Dioxide, Stearic Acid, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Magnesium Stearate, Titanium Dioxide (color), Natural Glaze, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Triethyl Citrate, Citric Acid, BHT, Mono and Diglycerides, Polysorbate 80
Aside from all the crap filler chemicals and a tiny quantify of a couple of ordinary vitamins, the only noteworthy ingredient is anatabine, a constituent of tobacco smoke. Anatabine was originally peddled as a stop-smoking aid by the same outfit now peddling it as an “anti-inflammatory”.
Yep, Couples should just shut up and leave you alone. How can this kind of crime be stopped?!
A friend of mine has using low dose anatabine for a while instead of NSAID's for his arthritis and thinks it's more effective at cutting down on the inflammation in his hands than Ibuprofen, et al. A few anecdotal reports are nothing to base a strong opinion on but it seems promising anyway.
