Does it REALLY matter where you buy your supplements?

Today you can buy almost any supplement online even the professional brands that we carry at Wailea Pharmacy. So why not buy them online? After all, its easy and sometimes less costly.

The simple answer is that you don’t always know what you are getting in terms of ingredient quality, product fillers, and manufacturing & storage

Wailea Pharmacy has the knowledge and experience to know which manufacturers and distributors maintain the highest standards and our customers can rest assured we carry only the highest quality supplements available.

Here are a few key points to consider:

Authenticity.

Some products are actually not what they claim to be. There have been instances where products have been tested and either contain additional ingredients or different ingredients then listed.

Ingredient integrity and potency.

Ever look for the same ingredients in a less expensive brand? There have been instances where some very inexpensive brands have been sent to a lab for testing and were found to contain sub-potent ingredients or a different ingredient altogether.

The professional brands we carry are tested for purity, potency and product integrity before and after they are manufactured.

Product storage.
High quality supplements conduct stability testing to determine how long the product will retain its potency. The way the product is stored is very important as temperature and humidity can make all the difference. Our distributors store and ship products within a well controlled temperature and humidity range to preserve the integrity of the product. Online, well who knows?

Product recall.
In the unlikely event a product is recalled we would be informed  and pass the information along to you whenever possible and post it on our website.
Come in and compare. In most instances our prices are comparable or even less then what you might find online.
