What You Should Know
Vitacost.com is a supplement company selling hundreds, if not thousands, of supplemental products for less. According to the front page of the website, Vitacost.com wants people to live longer and save money in the process. Navigating the website is simple. There are tabs across the top of the page so consumers can search for products they desire. The tabs include vitamins, supplements, herbs, diet and sexual health. By narrowing down products by popularity, Vitacost.com eliminates many of the problems users have searching for products. Unfortunately for consumers, Vitacost.com has no stake in how well a product works as they are only a source of sales not support or factual information.
List of Ingredients
Vitamins and supplements at reduced prices.
We decided to search through the diet tab to see just how much information Vitacost.com offers and if any of the information is different from that provided by a product’s official website. When we looked at the NVE Stacker 2 website and compared pricing and information to Vitacost.com, we were a bit disappointed in both. NVE offers no clinical information or support for Stacker 2, but a complete ingredient list was available and a few fat loss claims. Vitacost.com offers the exact information and the description was taken verbatim from the website. What was most interesting is the claim made by Vitacost.com that the price they listed was 50% less than retail at $19.67. The official website sells the same product for $19.99. That is certainly a savings, but not a 50% savings.
We tried a second time with VPX Meltdown. The official website offered tons of great information, but Vitacost.com offers an ingredient list and dosage instructions. The price on Vitacost.com was $30.21, 49% off according to website claims. The official website sells the same product for $64.95. In this case, Vitacost.com offered a significant reduction in price.
The sheer lack of unique information on the Vitacost.com website is enough to keep dieters away. In order to save money and live longer, they need to research a product on the official website or trusted review website and then search on Vitacost.com for the product at a reduced price. This could help save them a bit of money, but the dieter must remember the reviews include no before and after photos and the information on Vitacost.com is just copied from the official website.
- Some supplements are less expensive on Vitacost.com.
- Product descriptions and information is copied from the official website.
- Not all prices are less expensive.
- Dieters have to search the official website before resorting to Vitacost.com to buy the product.
Vitacost.com is an aggregate website that sells a huge number of supplements. The company does not have any vested interest in weight loss success so they do not offer unique information on any products.
