Buying Vitamins Through the Mail?


I am thinking of purchasing our vitamins by mail order. Have any of you done this, and and are you pleased with the service, quality? Who do you use? Thanks in advance.

I buy my vitamines from Melaleuca and I also buy my two and a half year old son's vitamines from Melaleuca. I find that since we've been taking them diligently everyday, we don't get sick and I feel much better and have more energy. Plus, they have small easy to swallow vitamins, which is a bonus when you have problems swallowing pills. They also have a three month money back guarantee; which made me feel safe in giving them a try in the first place.

I'd be happy to tell you more about the company and help you get set up and show you how to order them. Just drop me a quick email at and let me know when and how to reach you via telephone (remember to tell me your timezone so I don't call at a bad hour).


I hope you find what you're looking for.

I swear by Swansons...I'm sure there's a website. They are based in Fargo, ND....Great products, great prices...right now they are running a half off and buy one get one free sale. There are some things that are still cheaper to get at our local Sam's Club. The melatonin we use to help one of our special needs children sleep is such a bargain at Sam's...Swansons has a good price, but Sam's is still about half off of that. Good luck!

I have used for years now. I use their store brand almost exclusively. They always ship in a timely manner, and if something is out of stock, they ship it separately at no additional charge.

I most often purchase through www.Purtain Pride as their products are good and they always seem to have really good specials. They have never given me a problem with returns either even when it was past the expire date and I explained i just didn't realize I wouldn't use them all. They even send me dated replacements for my use. I suggest you request catalogs from those we all listed and see for yourself. I've had no problems with either Puritan's Pride or Swanson's. Both good people to deal with and they stand behind their guarantees. I love it when I get the buy 1 get 2 free sales at Puritains Pride. You could also google for any more names. Good luck and happy days. If I may suggest something for multi vitamins.


The hard little pills in the store will not be fully digested by your stomach as there are just too thick to get it all released. I go to the drug store and purchase multi's in desolveable capsules which have the vitamins in powder form. A nurse told me about this. I use Pure Encapsilation. They recommend 6 a day but healthy people only need 3 a day, and they are taken with meals as the absorption rate by the body is significantly better than just taking with water. Another important hint is to eat breakfast within the first hour of arising.

If you have insurance that pays for naturopath physicians, or your hospital has an integrative medicine center which used both ND's
and MD's, they could do a good work up for you and recommend just what you and your family really do need. You can also have a blood sample taken from which it can accurately be calculated that from which you would most benefit. Some insurance companies will pay for ND's as well as MD's.


Also at Puritan's Pride they have MAX EPA (FISH OIL CAPSULES FOR THE HEART). Most people just do not realize the salmon they purchase at the market is usually farm raised and it is the ocean caught salmon which provide the heart benefits. Check this out.

I agree with Puritan's Pride, but I haven't shopped elsewhere online.

I wanted to suggest that you order a catalog from each company before you make a purchase. Puritan's Pride has great descriptions, plus, the catalog shows the size of the pill. Very handy if you have a dificult time swallowing large pills.

I buy my vitamins through Shaklee, and now I am a distributor for them. Everything is 100% money back guarantee, regardless of how much or how long you use them. You can check out their products at


or email me at for more information. There are no artificial colors, flavors, or nasty additives, and lots of clinical research to back up their potency!
