...Liquid vitamin was wraped in plastic zip lock bag and glass vitamin bottle was wraped in special packaging as well. Very impressed! Thank you!!..


Had same experience as others, you pay more per bottle to participate in their BOGO FREE specials, and the actual price is in much smaller print. If you want one bottle of something, you might pay $25 for it, but if you want the "free 2nd bottle special", that same first bottle will cost you more..
