The safest, most effective therapies for optimal health!
by Ellen Landauer
This discount supplements warning can help you avoid wasting your money on impotent, outdated products.
Not all products of the same brand are alike! What do I mean..?
You can find many supplement brands at extreme discounts on large shopping sites. Some are selling at near wholesale price!
The big question is... 'Why would state-of-the-art top professional brands, found in the offices of holistic MD's and other health practitioners, be selling at bargain-basement prices?
PHOTO ABOVE: Which bottle of this fabulous Multi-Vitamin/Mineral supplement to buy? The discounted one looks exactly like the one selling at full retail price... Same labels, same ingredients and listed potencies - what a bargain!
Or is it..?
The reality is...
Buying discount vitamins on the internet is like shopping on EBay...
Often, when you go to Whole Foods and see produce on sale at a very reduced price, if you look closely it's not too hard to see why...
It is on the verge of some serious spoilage.
However, unless you have xray vision and appropriate laboratory testing equipment, buying cheap nutritional supplements is much more tricky than buying fresh vegetables!
When you buy deeply discounted supplements, there is no way to tell beforehand how much potency they have lost. You have no idea what has been going on inside that container!
I provide this discount supplement warning to help you make sure you get fresh products that have been stored under optimal conditions.
Years ago, I bought a deeply discounted professional brand of Niacin (B-3). If you know anything about niacin, you will know that when you take enough of it, especially on a light stomach, the immediate effect is unmistakable...
Your skin from head to toe can turn anywhere from pink to beet red - and you itch all over due to release of histamine from the mast cells in the skin.
Niacin can't fake it - it is one supplement that makes it clear if it is potent or not.
My discounted Niacin did - zip - nothing!
I took more and more at each dose just to see if I could get a response - never so much as a tingle; no change in skin tone whatsoever!
That 250 mg per capsule Niacin supplement was totally impotent!
When I started purchasing from my present professional supplier, HALF the contents of one capsule of that same brand and potency of Niacin got my epidermis vibrant pink and itching like one big mosquito bite within less than 5 minutes!
Same brand - one bottle a dud, the other quite potent.
One more example: There is a probiotic brand that is astoundingly effective for me and all clients who use it. The benefits made themselves known in very obvious ways - like relieving terrible bloating and pain of one of my clients WHILE she was on a very potent antibiotic for lyme disease.
My technical support contact at the company told me that they get phone calls from dissatisfied customers for whom the probiotics did nothing!
Why the discrepancy..?
Because those customers bought the product from big discount houses that either were selling outdated products or not protecting them from heat, light and freezing!
Awhile back, I had a phone conversation with Don Tyson, president of Montiff, a top professional brand. Mr. Tyson has a 45 year background in medical technology and clinical use of supplements. I am continually impressed with how potent these supplements and how excellent the synergy of the ingredients in the various formulas.
I asked Mr. Tyson why his excellent supplements could be found at dirt cheap prices on various internet discount shopping sites.
He told me exactly how this happens...
A distributor buys in bulk directly from Montiff...
A few years later, they find themselves with outdated products that have been lying around - perhaps in a warehouse without sufficient air conditioning in summer.
They sell these at an extremely reduced price to a big discount house - where they again languish, perhaps under dubious conditions. The second distributor sells at even bigger discounts.
The travel-worn products may end up at a 3rd distributor, selling at below wholesale.
***These are the products you will find dirt cheap on the internet!***
This discount supplement warning is intended to make sure you get fresh products that have been stored under optimal conditions.
