Vitamins! Biggest Buying Blunders

Vitamins! Biggest Buying Blunders

Have you ever blundered when buying a vitamin? I have and I can tell you I paid a hefty price – in time and money I really couldn’t afford to lose! But worse still, it cost me in terms of delaying improvements to my health too, which sadly is even worse.

blundersI’m not talking about impulse-buying a bottle of vitamins with flashy neon words emblazoned on a label that shrieked my name. Nor am I speaking about pitching a bottle into the shopping cart, believing {in a weak moment} it’d cure everything from fatigue to cellulite, while making me leap tall buildings! No! Not that kind of blunder!

LOL! Come on, admit it! You’ve done it too! Surely everyone’s fallen for THAT at least once. Please say it is so … it’ll restore my faith in the truthful nature of humanity!

VitaminBrandsNo! That’s just a little screw up! I’m talking about B.I.G. blunders with an S on the end. My kind of blunders before I knew better. I mean blunder after blunder … like buying brand upon brand of supplements until one entire kitchen cabinet was stuffed to capacity with my vitamin blunders! 

So why did I have a full cabinet bulging with dozens of useless vitamin bottles? Because I’m a crazy health nut with a buying addiction, right? Haha! NO!

It’s because NONE of the little suckers did anything for me, except lie in my stomach like a brick, or they induced heartburn, or had ZERO effect on my health or the way I felt!

I mean really, if you’re going to spend money on vitamins, shouldn’t you feel some sort of difference?  Some measurable improvement?

Well I DIDN’T. Therefore I did the only thing I knew to do at that time. UGH! I kept searching in all the wrong places. Yep!  I continued to buy new brands and different formulas, desperately hoping something would help me feel better. Hey listen, I know I earn the award for foolishness, but can we please give me an “A” for perseverance?  I didn’t give up … I searched until I found a brand that delivered measurable results.

Once I succeeded, I stopped buying all the other stuff {s—} and tossed the blunders into the garbage. I vowed to purchase the ONLY brand that truly made me feel a  difference. It’s the brand we’ve been using and recommending for 35 years! {More about that later.}

Let’s just say that all that experience {of buying blunders} taught me a lot! I’m happy to share with YOU what I learned in order to save you from making the same or similar mistakes.

I can save you time, money … and frustration too!

What are the Biggest Buying Blunders?

Misconceptions about the truth and falsehoods of a GOOD vitamin, along with lack of sound knowledge, as well as being easily deceived by slick advertising and over-the-top hype, all contribute to YOU … the unsuspecting {or overly-trusting} shopper … making Big Buying Blunders that cost you!

Here are some common misconceptions that contribute to the blunders: 

  • All vitamins brands are alike! {Whaaaat? Like all kids are the same?}
  • What’s on the label is exactly what’s IN the bottle {Often proven not to be!}
  • If it says it’s natural it’s truly 100% natural! {“Natural” allowed if 15% natural}
  • Of course you absorb it, why wouldn’t you? { Maybe because it’s not real food?}
  • No difference in natural and synthetic! {Ever tried to eat a plastic banana?}
  • All companies test for efficacy don’t they? {NOT! They just package and sell it!}
  • Major stores sell them! They must be safe! {And you believe elephants fly?}
  • Balancing nutrients doesn’t matter! {Unless you really care about good health}
  • Celebrities endorse them! They have to be good! {Really? Does money talk?}
  • Brilliant marketing means they’re great! {Ugh! A sucker’s born every minute}

Seriously!  Have you ever thought about what to look for in a high quality vitamin? You know, the kind of supplement that actually gets absorbed into your blood, so it can build and repair the cells in your body?

That’s the one you want! 

If yours doesn’t perform that way, then let’s just say, you’ve been duped! You threw money down the drain, you placed trust where you shouldn’t have and you feel like you really screwed up! Don’t you just hate that?  Well it happens ALL the time and it is very SAD! It happened to me once … it was BS {Before Shaklee!}

Ask YOUR brand to produce a double blind study! I dare you!!!
