Vitamins That Are Made in China vs the USA, What is the Difference and
Why Are They So Much Cheaper from China? By: LifeSource Vitamins &
If your vitamins have been sourced and manufactured in China, they are
without a doubt cheaper than US made vitamins, why is this? What is the
true cost of these vitamins from China? How is it that Chinese manufactures
can source their ingredients, pay their workers, cover all the production
costs, ship the finished product on boat that takes six weeks to get to our
shores and then price them, on average, 25% below USA made supplements? Why
would you spend $28 for a product, when you could buy it for $12?
Efficacy is the answer.
Efficacy: is the power to produce a desired effect or intended result. You
can buy the cheapest vitamins on the market, but if they do not work, the
money is wasted, your health may be at risk and you can most definitely

simply information as to why we at LifeSource Vitamins would
never buy any ingredients from China to make our vitamins. With regard to
anything you put in your body, you get what you pay for.
Price should not be the determining factor, vitamins that work on a
cellular level should be or don’t waste your money!
