Legit, Science-Based Supplements That Work

What’s up, guys? Sean Nalewanyj here. It’s been a few weeks since I last uploaded
a video. The reason being that I’ve been really hard
at work here. It’s kind of behind the scenes, not just
for the past few weeks but actually for the past year and a half on a new project that
I’d just completed that I wanted to quickly talk about here before I go back to putting
out my regular informative videos. Now, anyone who follows my contents, whether
it’s here on YouTube or over on my blog or on Instagram and facebook, you guys know
that I’ve been very outspoken when it comes to the supplement industry. I genuinely believe that probably ninety to
ninety-five percent of body building and fitness supplements are basically a complete BS, and
if they’re not a complete BS even then they’re still not useful enough to be worth your money. And there are a lot of different reasons for
that which I’ve talked about many times in my past videos; ineffective ingredients that
aren’t backed by legit research. Keep in mind that only a very small percentage
of muscle building and fat burning compounds are actually supported by real scientific
studies, and most of them, no matter how convincing the advertisements might seem, most of them
will actually do very little to absolutely nothing for you. Even when researched, that compounds are used,
they’re usually under dose so you don’t end up getting a useful amount of each one
anyway. Most supplements are promoted with excessive
marketing hype that way over exaggerates their benefits. They’re usually overpriced for what they are. And then on top of all those things you’ve
also got other obstacles to deal with like proprietary blends, there’s blatant label
fraud, low quality manufacturing, it’s really just a mess out there in the industry, for
a lack of a better word. And as a result to that, a lot of people,
especially beginners but even more experienced lifters too, they end up being misled, they
end up wasting their time and money along the way, and they lose focus on the essentials
of what it takes to build a great physique, which is, of course, proper training and nutrition. Now, with that being said, if you do follow
my content regularly then you also know that even though most of what’s out there, supplement-wise,
is best avoided there are still a select few supplements that I’ve consistently recommended
over the years that are backed by good support of research and that can be used as an optional
add-on to maximize you results if, and only if, you use them in conjunction with a solid
training and nutrition plan. Now, they are by no means going to boost your
gains into the stratosphere, they’re not gonna take the place of hard work in the gym by
any means, but they can help to improve the overall convenience of your program and just
give you a small extra boost in terms of training performance and overall long term results
in general. High quality protein powder, creatine monohydrate,
fish oil, multivitamin and certain pre-workout compounds, those are, sort of, the basics
that I’d personally used and that I’ve been recommending in my previous videos and my
articles. Now, one question or one request that I was
regularly getting from my readers and my viewers in YouTube was whether or not I would consider
putting out my own brand of those few products that I do genuinely believe in. And this was something that I went back and
forth quite a bit. I did put out a few supplements, quite a few
years back, but ultimately discontinued them mainly for financial reasons because I just
wasn’t really prepared at that time for everything that was involved with running
a supplement line. But, yeah, I just wasn’t sure if it was
something I wanted to do. I wasn’t sure even if they will be much
of a market for it because when you promote supplements using a really straight up, honest
approach, it’s not gonna be anywhere near as exciting or a flashy as the usual hyped
up approach that pretty much all the big companies used. But ultimately, back, probably around early
2017, I decided that even if this did only appeal to a much smaller crowd; people who
aren’t looking for a quick fix, people who have a solid training plan in place and who
understand the role that supplements play in the overall scheme, and if it provide some
good values to my viewers, and if it did have a positive impact on the industry in general
jut by helping to move people away from the typical junky products that they were regularly
buying, then in the end I figured that it was worthwhile. So, with that said, I want to let you guys
know that after a year and a half of very hard work on this, a ton of long hours of
research, testing and tweaking, that Real Science Athletics has launched today. The website is live over at The link is down in the description box and
you can also click up here as well. We’ve got three clean, simple, research
backed, properly dosed products available; a pre-workout, a multivitamin and a fish oil. So, three supplements that I used and have
been recommending for a long time, and I really honestly believe that these are the optimal
choices in the specific product categories right now in terms of striking the right balance
between effectiveness but also simplicity in price. There’s a lot of companies out there who market
themselves as being honest and science based and for the people, but when it really comes
down to it they’re still putting unnecessary ingredients in their formulas, they’re still
overpriced, they’re still using shady marketing tactics. So, my goal here is to really do this the
right way and live up to the name of the brand, which is Real Science. No BS, no gimmicks. The margins on these products are a lot lower
than most other supplements. I didn’t cut any corners here with productions
so the costs on our end are a lot higher. I’m, by no means, gonna be making huge profit
on each sale, but the goal here is to play the bigger picture game and think longer term
with this. Now, I know there are gonna be some immediate
reactions down in the comment section; Oh, my God, you’re selling supplements. How could you? Guys, keep in mind that this is all fully
in line and fully consistent with my previous recommendations and with my ethics. These are the same supplements I’ve been
personally using in my own program and that I’ve been recommending to you guys for years,
even when they were different brands that I wasn’t making anything from. And these are very high quality and affordable
versions of those supplements that I really think improve on most, if not all, the current
ones that you’ll find out there. Now, you can find all of the exact details
behind each product on the website. I don’t want this video to go on for too
long. I don’t wanna turn this into some sort of
bug infomercial here, but I’ll just give you a quick rundown of each one here before
I close the video out. So, the first one is PureForm. This is our pre-workout. This is a very simple, straightforward formula
that give you four solid ingredients backed by research in their proper dosage. So you’re getting 6 grams of L-Citruline Malate,
3 grams of L-Tyrosine, 200 milligrams of Caffeine and 200 milligrams of L-Theanine pre scoop. So this is just a good, well-rounded combination
to optimize your workout quality in terms of strength, energy and focus without going
unnecessarily overboard. You don’t need 8 to 10 or 12 different ingredients
in a pre-workout, that’s just total overkill. And it’s even potentially unsafe if you’re
doing it over the long term and using it often. And you also don’t need to spend forty to
fifty bucks a month on your pre-workout either. So PureForm is much more affordable. It’s designed to just give you the key ingredients
that worked with no proprietary blends, no fillers, no heavy stimulants. And as an added bonus it’s also a hundred
percent naturally sweetened and naturally flavored as well. Not that a moderate amounts artificial sweeteners
are necessarily harmful, but more and more people are wanting those natural alternatives
nowadays and I had pulled my audience on facebook and Instagram previously, and the majority
voted for the natural version. And so that’s just the route that we’ve
decided to go with this. Second one here is MicroCore. This is our multivitamin. And the reason it has this name is because
the goal here is to just give you the core micronutrients that you actually need. The ones that a high percentage of people,
especially people who are training hard in the gym tend to be a bit lower on or those
micronutrients that have certain benefits when you take them in a slightly higher amounts. After doing a lot more research on this over
the years I’ve come to the conclusion that traditional full spectrum multivitamins are
not gonna be the ideal choice in most cases for the simple reason that you just don’t
need to be supplementing with every single vitamin and mineral out there. Especially if you already following a decent
diet. It’s not only gonna be unnecessary but some
micronutrients might even be harmful if you’re taking too much of them over the long term. And then on top of that most full spectrum
multies out there also tend to be using the lower quality, less absorbable forms of a
lot of the different ingredients, and they underdose them as well to save on cost. So with MicroCore we’re just focusing on
the highest quality forms and the proper studied dosage of the few select vitamins and minerals
that are likely gonna benefit you. And these are the same ones that I’ve talked
about in a lot of my older videos; vitamin D, magnesium, zinc, vitamin K, and there’s
also a basic B complex in there as well. A lot of potential benefits associated with
those in terms of just better overall performance, better recovery, energy, mental functioning,
sleep, testosterone levels. It just keeps the whole engine running more
smoothly and it’s gonna make sure that all of your micronutrient needs are being fully
met. And then lastly is 03 Prime, which is our
fish oil product. And this one here is in the re-esterified
triglyceride form, which is gonna be better absorbed and the regular ethel ester or natural
triglyceride forms that most people used. This product has a very high concentration
of EPA and DHA per gram, which are the specific fatty acids in fish oil that provide the benefits. Benefits like improving cardiovascular health,
reducing inflammation, improving cognitive function, and it can even have some modest
direct effects in terms of optimizing muscle growth and fatloss over the long term. So unless you’re eating fatty fish regularly
throughout the week beneficial oil supplement will make sure that your EPA and your DHA
levels are falling into the ideal daily range. Most people levels don’t fall into the ideal
range and the average person in the West only gets about ten to twenty percent of the recommended
amount per day. So those are the three products. They’re all produced in a CGMP certified facility,
it’s a bit more expensive to go that route but it basically guarantees that you’re getting
the purest raw ingredients and the highest quality processing available, which is obviously
really important and it’s not something that I would wanna compromise on just for
the sake of higher margins. So I leave it there, guys. Thanks for watching. If you do wanna give any of these a try, support
Real Science Athletics, that’s great. If not that’s totally cool, too. The message here is gonna be the same no matter
what moving forward, nothing on the channel is gonna change in terms of content. Supplements are not must in order to get great
results, they’re just optional add-on that you can use if you do have the extra money
and if you wanna get that little extra edge both in and out of the gym. But if you do, this is something that I’ve
worked extremely hard on over the past year and a half. I’m very proud of the end result and I can
honestly say that I would recommend these products even if they weren’t my own. So if you do
wanna check it out and I will talk you guys again soon with more regular informative content. Thanks for watching.

  1. Way to go Sean! I attribute the vast majority of what I know in my own training and now my training business to you!

  2. Good luck w it Sean!
    Seems totally in line with your videos and philosophy. Not sure why anyone would take offense to this.

  3. Been following for almost 2 years. Very excited to try the products. Anyone who is familiar with Sean's science based no BS approach to training, diet and supplementation knows what to expect from these products.

  4. its like this guy is stuck in 2007, come on bro your saying the only things that are good are protein from whey, creatine and multivitamins. What you been doing the past decade.

  5. Looking massive in the thumbnail, Sean 🙂
    I'll check out your new supplements in the future. There's so many products that are overpriced, have too much marketing hype behind it, or both…I'm sure that your supplements are legit though because I've been watching your vids for a long time & you're very knowledgeable when it comes to bodybuilding & fitness as a whole.

  6. Didnt even see the video. Just clicked the link to his website and saw what was available and once i run out of my current supplements ill buy one of each! I always agree with Sean's videos on the subject of supplementation and I know his products are gonna be a+ as a result.

  7. Congratulations and best of luck from a long time viewer! Had a look at your site and will definitely pick something up in the future. Too bad that I already placed a supplement order a couple weeks back 🙁

  8. Congratulations Sean! I'll be picking up some preworkout. Glad to support the channel, keep up the amazing content 💪

  9. you're ethics are badass and appreciated man

    I bought pureform – I would buy a hat / tshirt too

    you deserve your success and congrats on the launch!

  10. Hi! Very great – I just wanted to say thank you because nowadays this is hard to find this kind of quality and transparency.
    So bad that transport shipping is such expensive (I’m in France).
    Thanks !

  11. Best of luck Sean! I think you have been giving some of the best/ honest information out there for years. Hopefully most people who follow your channel will completely understand, and will hopefully support your new business if they are in the market for supplements.

    I will gladly recommend your supplements to people, (after I try them for myself, and secondary to recommending making their own preworkout).

    I found it's always good to have a container of manufactured preworkout for when you don't have time to mix your own. Yours will be that preworkout for me.

  12. 2 questions!
    -do you see it as not worth your while to include a creatine or beta alanine product?
    -do you personally take beta alanine?
    Thanks Sean

  13. I wish you the best of luck, Sean. I'd like to suggest you to create some tipe of gluten and lactose free Protein poweder, like Pea or Rice Protein, for example.

  14. Great job Sean! I've been following your YouTube channel for a while and trust your advice and judgment!

    I do not use branded supplement blends, and have chosen instead to take specific ingredients: 8g of Citrulline Malate pre-workout, and a pure whey protein post-workout. Also, 5g of Creatine Monohydrate and 6g of fish oil each day.

    In your previous videos, you've mentioned the value of Creatine Monohydrate and whey protein. Are you planning to add either or both of these to your RealScience line in the future?

  15. Great content as always Sean. Started following your advice recently and i am glad i found this channel. Very genuine advice. Thank you! Congrats on the product. Wish u all the best

  16. Sean, just ordered one of each of your new products. Can't wait to try them.

    For clarification, does 1 serving of both the fish oil and multi-vitamin give you your entire recommended daily intake? I'm having to take 2 servings of my current fish oil to get to the RDA. Thanks!

  17. Sean I love your channel and I trust you, Jeff cavalier, and Elliot husle the most. In terms of your pre workout, would it prevent fat burning during a work out in any way. I have a decent physique but I need to lose about 10 pounds. My workout is 2 hrs an do train 2 muscle groups each workout. I've read that most preworkout supplements and BCAA's will use the supplements as the engery source during the workout and hence you don't end up burning as much if any fat from the workout. Would your preworkout have the same issues? I need to lose weight (I'm already dieting and doing cardio) but I also need a bit more energy to get through my workouts. I'm looking for a preworkout thatll give me energy but still allow fat burning during my workout.

  18. So glad that you started up a supplement line again. You're one of the few people in this industry that can be trusted to deliver quality whether that be in the form of content or a supplement. In fact I'd have no problem buying any one of your products without even glancing at the label. I know it's going to be top-notch. Best of luck Sean and keep killing it!

  19. Ordered the preworkout the moment it was out and I’m so hyped about it. Keep it up fellow British Columbian

  20. I just purchased your Pre Workout Sean. I've never believed in a pre workout supplement as I always just had a coffee pre workout. However because I believe you're the most honest fitness youtuber out there I was willing to support you and your hard work and give the Pre Workout a shot. Thanks heaps for everything and can't wait to try it.

  21. Hey Sean, I’m a huge fan of yours from South Korea. I tell my wife that I have a fitness coach named Sean who’s the real deal, and you’ve helped me tremendously in building my physique. Just ordered all three of your products and can’t wait to try them all! Keep it up Sean!😄👍

  22. Hey Sean quick question.
    Which type of creatine do you recommend? Mono or HCL? Just wondering. Both seem to be very popular

  23. Amazing quality and scientifically-formulated supplements at a very affordable price. Got the fish oil and multivitamin. Good luck with the launch Sean!

  24. Hey on your workout plan for phase 1 i dont want to romanian deadlift because the chance of hurting low back should I replace it with another excercise or just not do it?

  25. Curious about Creatine….if I am just lifting for weights loss without losing muscle mass should I be concerned with taking creatine?

  26. Multi vitamins are worthless for the typical American .Billions of dollars worth of vitamins are literally pissed out by people every year .I think 99% of bodybuilders would not need them.I had a friend that was an MD and made millions selling BS vitamins and retired in his 40s.He told me it was the easiest scam ever selling vitamins to Americans.You can check your Vitamin D3 level if you are never in the sun .Thats the only one that runs low .Huge studies showed that fish oil has no benefit in preventing heart disease.Sadly,99 % of all supplements are making smart people rich off that back of naive wishful suckers.Placebo effect is amazing ,and many swear they benefit which is why the supplement scam is a winner every time.In China people swear ground up sea horses give them a hard on .Its crazy over there ,with 1.5 billion suckers .Anyone who walks in a GNC is 100% moron and the sales guy is even dumber .

  27. Love this chanel… Ive been watching and learning alot from sean for almost two years now. Good luck with your venture sean and thanks for the no bs information and for health and fitness the inspiration!!

  28. wow these supplements are going to sell out quick, legit dosage on everything.
    i've personally used most of these individually l-tyrosine, l-theanine citruline malate etc. so will be awesome to take in in a combined supplement.
    hopefully most clueless people will wake up and avoid all the overhyped/non-scientifically backed supplements out there at the moment
    good stuff sean!

  29. I took a look at your website and specifically the Pure Form. However, my Cardiologist have highly suggested that I stay away from anything that has caffeine, albeit only 200 mg, due to heart palpitations even though I have had the procedure done to stop my arrhythmia. I will, however, give Micro Core a try! I do have questions. What is your opinion on Beta Alanine? And why does Micro Core contain Magnesium Stearate and Silicone Dioxide? Doesn't this present a health risk? Thank you!

  30. Hey Sean,
    Just wanted to say Congrats on the new venture!
    Just logged on and got the 3 x pack.
    Also wanted to thank you for the advice you’ve freely shared on youtube….I’ve lost 13 kg and bulked up a bit also.
    Feelin good & Rockin a T-Shirt at 45 thanks to you mate!
    Well Done👍

  31. Sean, I am a vegetarian and would like to know what I can take that would take the place of fish oil? and would that product be just as good? Right now, I take flax seed. Thanks Sean

  32. It's always curious to me why these major companies can't seem to produce a decent supplement with effective dosages. It's not that hard, or that expensive! You'd think if they did it and put the same money behind advertising it that they do their usual bullshit, they'd quickly come to dominate the supplement industry. Ah well, what do I know about business. Anyway–Will be trying your fish oil and possibly the multivitamin soon!

  33. Sean hopefully you see this and can respond. I want to get your thoughts on this. This is hypothetical but say you have a very busy schedule which doesn't allow you to eat directly before and after training. Do you believe hypertrophy gains would be significantly reduced if pre-workout and post-workout meals are consumed 3+ hours before and after the workout (so basically like a 6-7 hr period without food around the workout). This is still assuming a caloric surplus is maintained at the end of the day.

  34. Sean I got stronger but yet smaller? Did my relative and absolute strength just increase while losing bodyweight (cuz i did lose some bodyweight).

  35. Hey, guys. So ive been bulking… In 2 weeks i gained 6 pounds which is insane. It is not noticeable but iam sure more than half of it is fat cause it's impossible to gain 6 pounds of muscles in 2 weeks. Ive been eating 3,000 calories because thats what the macros calculator told me. I will lower it but does anyone have an opinion on how much should i lower it? thank you

  36. top-notch and honest guy. He is the BEST on youtube and in this entire industry. Everyone would do very well to listen to Sean and his knowledge .

  37. I just tried the pre work out formula. Let me tell you it may have been a coincidence but i had one of the best leg work out ever. Not promoting anything just saying the truth.

  38. Thinking about trying pureform, I train early mornings and sometimes the dark coffee doesnt sit well on an empty stomach.

  39. Don't know if anyone has already asked, but will you be selling on Amazon? That would be really convenient for many – including myself. Great Channel by the way.

  40. Sean, thanks for your hard work on launching these products!

    On a similar note, do you recommend taking "supplement breaks", like don't take creatine, beta alanine, etc. for a week every 6 months? What are your recommendations on the matter? Thanks again!

  41. I've followed Sean for years. I just got my vitamins, fish oil and pre workout in the mail this week. I've tried every pre workout on the market and I was so impressed by the clean energy and focus. Such a great product. I'm done with other preworkouts. Thanks for the great product.
