DENVER, Dec. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MusclePharm Corporation, a Nevada corporation ("MusclePharm" or the "Company") (OTCBB: MSLP), an expanding U.S. nutritional supplement company, is pleased to announce that the Company's popular pre-workout product ("Assault") is now the No. 1-selling pre-workout product on Bodybuilding.com, the world's largest online sports nutrition retailer with yearly revenues upwards of $250 million.
Assault, which was recently named the "2011 Bodybuilding.com New Supplement of the Year," is also now the No. 2 overall top-selling product on a website that features more than 12,000 products from 500 companies.
Assault is currently the only pre-workout product in the sports nutrition market to have certifications from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and Informed Choice as Banned Substance Free. Assault continues to garner impressive reviews from athletes and consumers around the world, also earning extraordinary reviews in recent clinical trial studies performed at the prestigious United States Sports Academy.
Phase 1 and Phase 2 clinical trial studies were recently completed with Assault and will be published in the coming months in a major medical journal. With unprecedented results for a pre-workout product, it will only lend validity to the already popular Assault product that is one of the most effective and safest pre-workout products on the market with the science to prove it.
Other MusclePharm products continue to have similar success on Bodybuilding.com as well, including the following:
Additionally, MusclePharm, the official nutritional supplement provider of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), has six products that are in the top 50 overall best-selling products on Bodybuilding.com. Of those, three (Assault, Combat and Armor-V) are in the top 15 overall best-selling products in what are also three of the most prominent categories in the sports nutrition industry.
"This is very exciting news for MusclePharm. We are thrilled to have Assault as the No. 1 pre-workout product on Bodybuilding.com as that site is the standard for sports nutrition worldwide. With our upcoming clinical studies on Assault from the United States Sports Academy, it will only add to the credibility of an already proven and reliable product," MusclePharm CEO Brad Pyatt said.
