We cannot guarantee the quality or safety of any products sold by unauthorized sellers. Several manufacturers have discovered a number of problems with products that are being sold online by unauthorized sellers.
Old, expired or past their freshness date. These products have often lost potency and likely will not meet label claim for listed ingredients.
Counterfeit products as is the case with other products such as watches, handbags, clothes, movies and many others, there are counterfeit sellers in the dietary supplement industry. Unscrupulous individuals selling products with unknown ingredients and quality, then labeled with counterfeit labels of brand name manufacturers. These counterfeit products are often sold online at a discount or way above retail. Many of these manufactures have even gone as far as making their labels state "will not be sold on Amazon or other 3rd party websites".
Damaged goods with broken seals, lack of environmental temperature controls, or previously a returned product opened and resealed for sale. Unscrupulous individuals may attempt to dump damaged products by selling them online at a discount.
Sold by "Bait and Switch." Professional practitioner brands are the most desirable brands in the supplement market. Resellers often market these brands online, even though they don't have it available to sell. Once the buyer calls they are often told that the brand is not available (bait). An inferior brand is then offered as an alternative (switch). Our pharmacy is an authorized seller of professional brand products. We stand behind the quality and purity of every product we sell. Our purpose in offering these products is to help you achieve optimum health.
Temperature controlled. Vitamins supplements can handle short-term temperatures above 80 degrees; unfortunately most online operations do not have temperature controlled warehouses. Heated vitamin do turn rancid and can cause serious health problems. It clearly states on most vitamin labels, "Keep closed in a cool, dry place out of reach of children." A cool dry place means below 80 degrees not stored in a refrigerator. Most online sales come out of warehouses between 80 and 110 degrees depending on the time of year.
