Why This brand of supplements
I’ve looked at all the supplements available. Can anyone explain to me why I would pay so much for these compared to another brand I have bought? What makes Andrew’s any more better than others? Are they really worth the cost???
We got some AL’s products. I saw no huge difference. It was not worth the cost.
I get my vitamins and herbs from a mom and pop shop. They have friendly, informative staff, and their prices are way cheaper than GNC and Vitamin World.
I can’t take these kinds of vitamins. My body just doesn’t absorb them. I have to take ‘liquid’ vitamins. I get these bottles of liquid vitamins at the health food store or online. They’re a heck of a lot cheaper, too, compared to Andrew’s.
To step back and say 10 years ago Suzanne Somers started a vitamin intake of maybe 10 a day. Suzanne is now up to over 70 a day—mind you she has access to some very good blood work but if she can consume this amount as well as who knows what else how is it she seems healthy and vibrant at almost 70 yrs.
One thing I do is cut everything out for about 4-5 days and just drink water with a half way nutritious meal then on the 6-6 day I start my vitamin intake all over again.
I do the same with my skin I use the heavy handed application of serum/cream/caps and then MASK my face and just cleanse it and go without all but retin a for about 3 days maybe 5 and then start over again.
SHOCK THE SKIN, SHOCK THE SYSTEM- When and if God allows me to live to 105 I might then and only then know If my plan worked.
OUR ENVIROMENT IS IN A TERRIBLE MESS- We have to combat the bad somehow, yet withen reason- Im old enough to remember when tap water was it- now we wouldnt think of drinking it- I admit I still do in a pinch- But times are different. Life is combat- we have to stay on top –
I take and like Andrew’s supplements…but they are so expensive. I am trying to explain to myself that it makes sense for my Healthy Hair Skin & Nails Supplement to cost more than my husbands heart meds.
I needed more glucosamine but opted out of the bundle. I always have fresh ginger in my fridge. HSN said regardless of quantity or opting out of one, I will still get AL coupon which always will come in handy. Hubby is on extra vitamins that are keeping him from taking insulin for his sugar. Thank God. Tomorrow is his big check up with the VA, and it’s a drive. Hoping the snow heading here is hits later in the day, until we get back, the river has been frozen for days. Wishing everyone a warm and cozy evening.
ToffeeDude, be safe and keep warm:)
OK – once again, I bought the TS. I also bought the CholestaCare that some of you say works, and I got the night time capsules that almost work for me. I didn’t want to buy them for a while because they are so expensive, but since I was already spending tons of money, I figured, might as well.
They work for me. Honestly, I hope I never have to do without my Lessman supplements .
Procaps are a feel the difference vitamin for me. They are a bit high for my budget BUT I would rather take 1 of his every other day than to take some generic mislabeled vit crammed with fillers and dyed + sugared in a neon color daily. I am assured that I will get the highest quality in the purist form..
Women’s Complete has been my only vitamin since 2007 when I was missing meals in grad school. It’s expensive but I have tried other brands. WC gives me what I need to make it through my busy days now that I have kids. Thank you for autoship and flex pays. I never want to run out.
Vitamins sometimes upset my stomach and I’ve never had that happen with the AL ones. I do still use a couple of his products, but I tried cholestacare for several months, lost 25 pounds eating a very healthy diet low in cholesterol during that time, and when I went back to the doctor, my cholesterol had actually increased by 40 points! I won’t use that product again.
As to how do you know if supplements are working, get tested. My vitamin D3 levels were well below normal and my doctor told me to use a liquid supplement that I can get (usually a BOGO so fairly inexpensive) at Vitamin World. This last doctor visit, my D3 levels had risen to high normal.
results show up with your blood work, then the doctor evaluates from your last blood workup. I love his vitamins, proof is on paper from the lab.
To order enough Glucosamine Chondroitin to last for the whole year would mean ordering two 600 bottles and a 300 ct. bottle at a cost of almost $250. I ordered last year but don’t remember it being that high. I heard him say this is the best pricing he’s ever offered, so I guess I’m wrong about that. Sure seems higher to me this year than it did last year …
I think that ingesting all of these Vitamins and Supplements can become a dangerous game. I feel that we can all benefit from a Multi-Vitamin every now and then, but beyond that – I say no. I’m very far from being an expert though.
Who says that the human body needs supplements and extra vitamins. I had a relative who became ill and doctors determined that too much of some nutrients were in his system. The body can be overloaded from even water. I once heard a doctor tell a group of dieters that too much lettuce can be harmful.
Who knows is Andrew is sincere or not. Who knows if he and Any doctor or nutritionist really knows what they are talking about. While Andrew is telling you that you need all of these supplements … He is becoming Richer and Richer by selling them to you. Does Sales and Money affects what he says. If Andrew became better informed with new information and realized that all of his supplements are Unneccessary and possibly harmful … Would he tell you to Stop taking his supplements or would he continue to sell them to you!?
Someone asked "do they work?" I am a study of two (husband and self), but I can definitely say that AL’s glucosamine works. How do I know? I had pain in both shoulders. Went to dr and he wanted to operate and shave the bone. Started taking AL’s glucosamine and the pain stopped. I thought well, I’m all better now so I don’t need to take glucosamine anymore. Stopped taking it and pain came back. Started taking it again and pain went away. Hubby has the same story with his knee. He tried other, cheaper brands and he says they don’t do the job as well as AL. So, for us AL’s works and works better than others. Definitely worth the price.
There is a website to check the quality, claims and efficacy of supplements: ConsumerLab.com. – Andrew has landed there with good results by the lab’s analysis. It costs a little to join, but do check it outl It has been very helpful to my husband and me while trying to figure out among other things, how to help with the side effects of Statins (cholesteral drugs).. We have gotten many answers there for a number of our questions. Glad there’s a conmpany checking out supplement claims – They use brand names and cost as well in their research.
