Not a Trusted Product!
No Obvious Brand/Manufacturer
It wasn't immediately obvious that this product was manufactured by a reputable brand, or even a brand looking to establish a name for itself. Legit supplement companies will usually try to promote their brand name at any possible opportunity. Real brands want you to remember their brand name so that you'll be more likely to buy from them in the future.
However, Brute Gains does not seem to be trying to establish a long-term relationship with their customers, create any sort of following or build brand awareness. It is a huge red flag when a company tries to be secretive about who is behind their products.
Use of Stock Images
We did a quick reverse-image search on some of the models that were used on the sales page and noticed that they are not exclusive to Brute Gains. This is a common tactic that we believe is highly misleading and dishonest. Including pictures of people on your sales page makes the viewer believe that this individual is endorsing the product, when in fact, the actual person in the photo may not even be aware that this product exists in the first place!
Over-Optimized Sales Page: Running out of stock warnings
This is often a completely made up message to create both a sense of urgency and social proof. Viewers will think that the price for the product is justified if a lot of other people are buying it, and will feel the need to act quickly if they don't want to be left out. We suggest visiting the page in a few hours or even the next day to see for yourself that it's a completely made up warning.
Product not available from prominent retailersIt appears that Brute Gains is only available to be purchased directly from their website, and nowhere else. It's a red flag when there are no other 3rd party retailers that carry this product.
Sneaky billing schemes
Read the fine print closely when entering your credit card information. You may think that a "Free Trial" will only cost you the "Shipping and Handling", but it actually enrolls you into an expensive auto-ship program if you don't call and cancel.
Vastly over-exaggerated product claims
We see some pretty lofty claims from Brute Gains that aren't necessarily supported by the science behind the product's ingredients. Be sure to do your own research into the effectiveness of each ingredient on reputable sites like Examine.com to see if the product is really all that it's cracked up to be. It's very likely that these promises are grossly overstated or even made up entirely.
The ingredients in Brute Gains are not even clinically dosed. Always make sure to compare the quantities of each ingredient with the amount used in any of the studies that back up the claims of that ingredient.
Over-Optimized Sales Page: Bogus countdown timers
A countdown timer is designed to create a sense of urgency so that the customer doesn't have time to reconsider the decision to purchase. Try refreshing the page or visiting on another day to see for yourself that the countdown timer is completely bogus. Do legitimate online retailers like Amazon ever use gimmicky countdown timers? Absolutely not.
Proprietary blends in ingredient profile
A proprietary blend is used when the manufacturer does not disclose how much of each ingredient is in the product - it is labeled as a "Proprietary blend". This is often a way for brands to skimp on the expensive and effective ingredients and simply pad their product with cheap fillers.
