With the internet, you can easily buy vitamin supplements online, but should you? It can be tricky if you’re new, because there is a lot of room for scams and low-quality products when purchasing through the internet.
However, there also exists some very high quality products that you can order from anywhere on this planet, which gives you a wide variety of choice and some of the best prices, because you can order directly from the manufacturer.
Here are 3 things you should look out for when buying vitamin supplements online:
1. Outrageous claims. Scams can often make big claims. However, most high-quality supplements and ethical companies lay out the facts and let you decide, so watch out if someone is trying to sell you fast with big claims. Always look for proof and clinical trials of what they are saying. If they try to talk themselves out of showing you any proof then you probably should avoid the product completely.
2. Price. Another factor is price. It can be hard to pin down, because high-quality supplements usually cost between $50-$100 for a month’s supply, so it is a fine line between overpriced and fairly priced. The thing you should look for is the amount of nutrients in the product and how well formulated it is. If a multivitamin costs $80 per month for example, it should contain pretty much everything you need.
3. Company. How long has the company existed? How is their customer support? Where are they located? Can you call them up? These are all questions that should be answered by the company fast. High quality companies have no reason to hide their identity and they usually have excellent customer support personnel that are more than willing to help you find what you need.
