Buying online has never been so easy in our lifetime. All you need is a computer, a credit card account and the will to spend on what you desire the most. No need for hard cash as everything can be processed electronically. Paperless bank and market transactions have been so effortless. Just one click and you have in no time a delivery on your doorstep.
Almost everything is sold in the Internet. Liquid vitamin supplements are no exception in the 24/7 virtual store. A lot of brands have been bombarding web pages with numerous desperate ads in hopes of getting potential customers. But as easy as it seems, how safe is it really to buy your favorite dietary supplement online?
Company websites provide portals mainly designated for processing orders. Others will contact you through email once you make your initial order. Unless the email address is given in the website, giving your bank account information to just any email address is a taboo. Even the not-so-techy people who rarely browse the web receive hundreds of soliciting emails every month, with several wanting to process my “order” of the latest Viagra package. You have a limited control on what is entering your inbox but you have total control on what is going out.
As logistics companies have boomed together with technology, delivery from state to state is no longer a big deal. If Internet is not your choice of transaction, phone call is very much welcome. Better talk to someone from the company if you are looking for more details. Some provide consultants to talk with if you are having second thoughts.
If you want one last coaxing and thorough observation of the products themselves, then go straight to the store. You will be surprised to see more products on their shelves than what they are displaying on your screen. Most often, companies post only the best sellers minus the newly launched ones.
The question of buying is not really about “how” but “why?” Remember, being safe while buying does not amount to being safe while taking the supplement. Consult your doctor first before taking any product.
