Personally, I've never used the stuff and wouldn't bother - I think I've learned by now that 99.99% of outlandish supplement claims are too good to be true.
Yeah, there are CrossFitters who swear by Progenex, wear the t-shirt when they workout, etc. I think this is actually motivated by two factors, both economic:
- Progenex sponsors Games athletes who promote it on their instagram and twitter and t-shirts, etc.
- Some CrossFitters and CF boxes are Progenex affiliates who sell the stuff for extra income

In both cases it's in their economic interest to promote it. There's also ******** and Isagenex, which are basically the same type of thing. (multi-level marketing companies, a.k.a. pyramid schemes)
