    I wanted to share two websites that I often buy supplements from that offer huge savings on supplements, many high quality brands like Metagenics, Biotics Research, Pure Encapsulations, etc., because they are expired or they are overstocked. (No, I don't work for either company! And yes, use your own discretion about how long expired supplements are good for, but I've taken lots and never had a problem)

    www.healthdesigns.com

    Click on the "Specials" tab. This has the expired supplements at huge savings. I've seen $90 supplements going for $10! You just have to see if what you want is in the specials.


    The other website is:

    www.thenatural.com

    Click on where it says "Deals" and then "Overstock Sale". I have found lots of stuff and it is all 40% off because it is overstocked.

    The sites I posted above have really expenive brands like Metagenics, Pure Encapsulations, Thorne, etc., for really cheap. Hard to find those brands discounted!

    I don't want expired stuff. I take things then stop for awhile. No point how cheap if they expire and I can't use them.

    @minkeygirl Well, many medications have been shown to be OK for up to 10 years after "expiration"! How would a 2 month expired supplement not work? I think they are just trying to justify making us spend much more money by thinking something is not good after a few months.

    Its like the "sell by dates" on foods.

    Hell, I have supplements over a year old and they still seem effective to me.

    I have drawers full off stuff I have not used yet. That I got to try and haven't. Maybe I will in a year. I don't know. But I'd like that Option. My ocd won't let me use expired stuff.

    "They" don't force me to buy anything.

    I have OCD also so I understand! Just not OCD in this supplement regard. I just hate wasting money on supplements and it seems that most are good for years and years after the "expiration".
