Off the top
Pro Health is more than just an online store for products and supplements, but also repository of health news, articles and information. It is also an active online community, with forums, live chats and the chance to speak with experts in a number of fields.
There's so much to access at Pro Health that at first you don't know where to start. The menu bar at the top of the homepage lays out everything neatly, with links buttons for their online community, research articles and store.
The large portion of the products for sale come from their own line of supplements, but you will also find such brand names as Now Foods and Natural Vitality.
Orders can be made through the site or through their toll-free number. They also produce a catalog that lists all of their products. On the site, they have a "catalog quick order" section where you can simply enter in the product codes of what you want, along with how much and go straight through the checkout. Their customer service hours are Monday through Friday, 7:00 A.M to 5:00 P.M, Pacific Standard Time.
They ship around the globe. For delivery options, you can choose between priority mail, FedEx 2-day and FedEx Overnight. Total delivery time on the standard order is five to seven business days. For their return policy, you can send back any unused portion of a product within 30-days for a full refund or credit.
Is the price right?
Comparing a number of random product prices against a general web search found that they are quite competitive. They're not always the lowest, but there are a number of ways to reduce the price of the products. They regularly offer reduced prices on bulk orders. They also have an automatic shipping feature they call the Smart Savings Club. You can have any of their products sent automatically on a set schedule (including twice monthly, monthly, bi-monthly, etc). Taking part in the program can drop as much as 40% off of the price of a product, as well as reduced shipping.
What else will I find?
It's the other things that Pro Health offers that separate it from many of its competitors. There are message boards and chat rooms, as well as listings to find support groups in your area. The articles and research essays are updated frequently and there is a vast archive that can be accessed. You can also subscribe to their online newsletter and receive updates and specials on products.
The bottom line
Even if you're currently not in the market for health products and just want to research and learn about a wide range of issues, Pro Health has you covered. It's the kind of site you could spend an afternoon surfing around.
