“One of the biggest mistakes people make is taking inexpensive vitamins. Mail order vitamins offering fantastic “deals” are worth just about what you pay for them.

Shaklee performs up to 176 separate tests for purity, freshness, potency, and safety on the raw ingredients for a single product. Products undergo as many as 262 separate quality assurance tests throughout the manufacturing process as well. In addition, all product label claims have documented substantiation.”
