    Dumb people think supplements lose weight! LOL! LOL!

    Take FDA approved weight loss drugs that will be paid for by drug plans and the Federal Govt. it is a no brainer! VVUS and ARNA stock will rally as obese world citizens take these drugs like Pez candies. . .

    • All you haters of supplements are deluding yourselves. Supplements do work. I wouldn’t be surprised to see probably the best supplements makers, Chromadex perform well in the month of June given their upcoming announcements. Further, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a negative effect on non-supplement competitors like ARNA and Vivus. Chromadex is a viable competitor in the weight loss/obesity arena. Anyone who thinks otherwise is deluding themselves in the fantasy word of supplement hating.

      • As with the other two comments, I agree that the title of this post is just a goofy argument put forth by holders of companies like Vivus and Arena Pharmaceuticals. Natural supplements are a thing of the future. Get used to it. Companies like Chromadex are going to take their share of the market, and at the same time probably expand the existing market to a new groups of people. I advise all involved in the weight loss/obesity arena to hold Chromadex, Vivus, and Arena – but don’t leave the natural supplements out. They have a continued bright revenue future.

      • I am going to second thomasoperation’s comments about supplements. Regulation lovers don’t like the supplements business, but that’s no reason to discount the legitimate threat Chromadex poses to the businesses involved in the weight loss/obesity arena. Chromadex really will steal a good portion of the market once their results become more known on a broader basis. Chromadex has a industry leading margin adjusted for other factors. Natural supplements have such a bright future, how could someone not investment in a company like Chromadex.
