My Personal Experiences with Anatabloc
Why am I such a proponent of Anatabloc and of Star Scientific? It’s simple….I have used the products (CIGRx and Anatabloc) for ten months and they have changed my life. I have recommended Anatabloc to dozens of people (probably >60), and over 90% are recognizing significant improvements of their various ailments (rheumatoid arthritis, lower back pain, multiple sclerosis, asthma, Crohn’s disease/IBS, gum inflammation, knee pain, muscle soreness after workouts, memory loss, age spots, urination issues, insomnia, plantar fasciitis, and the list goes on and on). For many, it has changed their life….just like it changed my life and the life of Cheryl Riley in this TV piece by CBS affiliate (WNEM) that was captured on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StVre96Vzr8
I started taking CIGRx in June of 2011, and switched over to Anatabloc in September of 2011. I have two auto-immune related diseases (bronchial asthma and rheumatoid arthritis), both of which were 80% under control by the prescription medications I was taking. But I still had some inflammation issues that inhibited my life to a minor extent. For example, I used to go on 4-5 day golf trips with my friends, but my RA caused the joints in my hands to swell up after 18 holes, and I would not be able to play golf the next day. So, I had to stop going on golf trips with my friends. That all changed when I started taking Anatabine Citrate (first CIGRx and then Anatabloc). Among the benefits I have personally observed are: 1. Much less RA symptoms.
I can now play golf 4 days (or more) in a row whereas a year ago, my hands would swell up after 18 holes and I couldn't play again for several days. This was true even when taking Humira and Methotrexate for my RA. With Anatabloc, I have been able to significantly reduce or even eliminate my prescription medication. For example, I have stopped taking Methrotrexate altogether. I used to take Humira every week...now I take it every 3 weeks. My RA is completely under control with Anatabloc and a Humira injection every three weeks. I may experiment with stopping Humira altogether. 2. My bronchial asthma symptoms are completely gone and I have not even used an Albuterol inhaler in months.
Also, my seasonal allergies (ragweed, pine pollen, etc.) went away completely this spring.
3. My knees no longer ache.
I have had three surgeries from football injuries (one ACL repair and two meniscus repairs). 4. I breathe better and sleep better.
I'm not sure why, but it may be because Anatabloc reduces inflammation of the air passageways. I am assuming it opens up my sinuses and my lungs to allow better O2 absorption. 5. I urinate better
(everyone I know who is over 40 who has taken Anatabloc has observed this benefit). I would conservatively estimate my urine stream is about 5 times stronger. Remember when you were young and you could "piss a rope"? Well, you can enjoy that feeling agin with Anatabloc.
6. My mental acuity seems sharper
. I no longer forget various passwords (which is easy to do when you have a dozen or more). 7. I no longer need reading glasses.
I’m not sure if this related to Anatabloc (but I know of no other reason). I have had reading glasses for the past 6-8 years (was using a 1.5 or 1.75). Now, for whatever reason, I no longer need them. 8. My age spots on my hands (some call them liver spots) have almost completely gone away.
I’m looking forward to Star Scientific announcing the Anatabloc skin cream, as I think that will be a huge seller. 9. I have a general feeling of well being.
I don’t know exactly how to describe it, but things that used to bother me and make me worry (mostly job related stresses), no longer seem to bother me as much. It’s pretty much what Fred Couples said in this interview (linked below)….. “I don’t even know how to explain it, I just feel much better.”
You have to turn up the volume to the max in this short Fred Couples Youtube video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrMY7kusb-o
The former professional tennis players (Jimmy Arias, Aaron Krickstein, etc.) also had similar benefits. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sonBc4SbWbg 10. My libido has been greatly enhanced.
Without getting into any details, I think most men will see significant improvements in this area. 11. It seems to curb my late night tendency to snack.
I have lost about 25 pounds since last September when I started taking Anatabloc.
12. I wake up each morning feeling refreshed and ready for the day.
This somewhat goes along with reason #9.
The list goes on and on. I share my experiences with every GNC sales associate I meet when I go in a store. After I talk with them, I can see their excitement that they currently have a monopoly on the distribution of Anatabloc in retail outlets. That's why I think we will see sales really take off in Q2.
I have probably visited over 20 GNC stores in the past 3 months as part of my business travels, and I have probably talked to 20-30 more on the phone. I have been to GNC stores in FL, SC, NC, GA, VA, DC, MD, NY, TN, KY, OH, & AZ. Whenever I am in a city, I stop by the local stores personally (if I have time). If I don’t have time, I call the local stores from my hotel room and do some of my own investing research on how much the sales associates know about the product and how well Anatabloc is selling.
Based on my recent stops at GNC stores in several cities, the sales of Anatabloc are about to go parabolic as GNC sales associates are learning the benefits and starting to push the product (the extra commission they get doesn't hurt). Apparently, the rollout to the stores started in March, but didn't really get going until early April. It will be fun to keep in touch with various GNC stores and see how the sales of Anatabloc are growing in May and June.
IMHO, as the word of the benefits of Anatabloc starts to spread, GNC will see a whole new class of customers entering their stores. While they have typically catered to the fitness oriented and body building types....they will now see middle aged and elderly folks starting to frequent their stores in search of Anatabloc (as it is a proverbial fountain of youth). As the only current commercial outlet where Anatabloc is available off the shelf (COTS)....they will start seeing significant new customer traffic in their stores. In fact, GNC is probably a good investment now based on the increased profits they will see relative to Anatabloc over the summer and fall time frame. They better make hay while the sun shines, because it won't be long before Anatabloc is in the major pharmacies and (CVS, Walgreen's, Riteaids), and the major chain stores (Walmart, Target, etc.)
I will make a post later this weekend and let people know some of my observations, including my revenue projections for Q1, Q2, and Q3. IMHO, the company will turn cash flow positive in June or July, but I will get into my assumptions and projections in my next post.
Good Luck to all CIGX Longs. It's going to be a fantastic summer as the Anatabloc doctors doing research attend conferences, share their observations, and various formal double blind studies start coming out. In the near future, you won't be able to turn on the TV and watch a medical show without them talking about Anatabloc.
