Great Healthy Products at iHerb.com with Discounts to Save Money
Everyone knows that making good food choices and exercising are important for living a healthy lifestyle. However, sometimes the foods we buy in supermarkets are not the best choices for us. I like to buy organic produce, when possible, or visit a farmer’s market to get fresh local produce. For more specific products, such as certain oils and supplements, it can be hard to find certain products where I live. Moreover, the health food stores in my area tend to be high priced.
My aunt recommended I try iHerb.com, which sells an assortment of health products. I decided to try it! So far, I am happy with the service I have received. Not only are products far cheaper than the same products I would buy in a store, but the products are always fresh and well-packaged (bubble wrap for glass items and plastic bags for other items). The expiry date is not just written on the product, but on the website, too. It is also nice to know that if an item does get damaged during transit (which I have not had happen yet), the iHerb customer service department will send you a replacement free of charge.
Moreover, if you're working overseas, iHerb can help you get the products you miss from home. This site was really nice to have while I was teaching in Korea.
If you are a first time buyer, you can get a $5 discount when you enter the following code: TED986.
iHerb.com offers a wide assortment of products to choose from. They have vitamins and supplements, but also bath and beauty products, including natural deodorants, toothpastes, hair coloring, body washes, soaps and shampoos. The site also has teas, sports bars, protein shakes, cooking oils (including coconut oil), nuts and seeds, spices, and much more. There are even home kits that you can use to test your body’s pH, to check how acidic your body is.
Shipping costs remain affordable—even for international customers! There are several shipping options to choose from on the website. My favorite is choosing products that have a weight up to 3 lbs and that cost under $80 in total, allowing me to pay only $4 for international airmail. iHerb gives an estimate of 1-4 weeks for shipping. I live in Canada and this option usually takes under 2 weeks for products to arrive at my house.
My aunt, who lives in Switzerland, also takes advantage of iHerb. She prefers buying more items at once, which means a heavier shipping load. However, by using DHL-international shipping, products arrive in 2-5 days at a cost of only $12.
Please note: These prices were accurate at the time of writing this article. However, iHerb has the right to change its prices at any time.
Most products have reviews that can make it easier to choose a product. Customers provide feedback on the cost and quality of products, as well as share personal experiences with products. Whether you are looking for a fluoride-free toothpaste, organic non-GMO (non genetically-modified organisms) coconut oil or a meal replacement powder, iHerb has plenty of products with reviews that can help you make the right decision.
I have used iHerb.com for over a year now and am constantly going back to reorder my favorite products.
