I am in india and i have used some Nutrilite products which are being marketed by Amway. Here in india we get one Vitamin C bottle of Nutrilite in 1000 Rs. ( US$25) which is VERY costly by indian standered.
They are claiming that they are the ONLY & REAL vitamins, I am a bit confused now. Their products are very costly and they are being Marketed by Amway which is suppossed to be an MLM firm.
They claim that their Vitamins are the only which will be completely absorbed by body and no other brands can do that. Please let me know what is the real story and how this work? and why they are so costly, are they really number one??
they are really expensive because they want to make lots of money. when they say they are the only vitamins that are truly absorbed by the body they are lying. amway is a money make scheme/scam and their vitamins are no bettr or worse than anything you will get from someplace like http://www.swansonvitamins.com which is the cheapest vitamins on the net (don't know how much to ship to india is though)
don't listen to their pr bs, go find something affordable and enjoy.
The reason they are so expensive is that Amway is a MLM and MLMs always have notorious price mark-ups. I hear they grow their own nutrients, but I wouldn't bother with them. Most of Amway's profits come from distributors who are forced to make a minimum purchase every month.
Don't buy supplements from MLMs-- you just about always find a better and cheaper product on the market than the ones that MLMs offer.
The short answer is because they better. Unfortunatly when it comes to products of this nature you really do get what you pay for. As a distributor of these products I can tell you that everyone who has tried my double x nutritional supplements which are also made by nutrilite loves them and continues to use them.
I don't really know why the person you bought them from said that they were the "only real vitamins" we all know this is not true. Also there claim to be #1 one in the world is true, but this is based on sales. They out sell the #2 by 10 times. Also all our my products are backed by a money backed guarantee so you can try them without risk.
All vitamins can be absorbed by the body... Nutrilite vitamins are from plant sources (mostly) that are better absorbed that others. However, the body can only absorb a certain amount of vitamins each day, so you are wasting your money if you consume too much each day...
