Yes, this is a shameless plug for an online shop. I wouldn’t promote it if I didn’t think it was worthy of my business, let alone your business.
I’m talking about iHerb. I first learnt of the company from fellow Naturopathy students who buy all their supplements there. I’ve so far placed three orders and have been very pleased with the service, delivery and price. It is based in the US, but has a huge range of products including supplements, nuts, dried fruits, cacao products, coconut oil etc. Much as I like to keep my money in Australia, sometimes it just doesn’t make financial sense as even postage within Australia is more expensive than from the US. Crazy, I know….
There are many reasons that I prefer to shop at iHerb. There is a huge range of products. Each product has customer reviews, medical and nutritional fact sheets and comprehensive data. The iHerb website also has links to medical and natural health databases. Freight is via DHL and is fast and very reasonable (around $11 for a reasonable sized order). Orders are also discounted when they are over $60 US. When you check your shopping cart, the total cost is listed in Australian dollars.
To make it worth your while to place an order, here’s a link that will generate a discount for you on your first order. Coupon Code
