Fantastic offer or not?
Holland and Barrett buy one get one half price, is this a fantastic offer?
As there has been a lot of press recently regarding Vitamin D deficiency, we will use this as an example.
(The lack of vitamin D leads to rickets in infants and children and osteomalacia in adults.)
The NHS advice is to take between 5,000iu and 10,000iu daily for 6 to 8 weeks to get you up to the required amount needed in your body.
H&B vitamin D (25ug = to 1,000iu) is £7.65 for 100 capsules. You would need to take 5 capsules per day to reach 5,000iu this equates to £0.38 per day
Or your independent health store can offer you
Now vitamin D (5,000iu) £20.00 for 250 capsules. You only need to take one capsule per day, this equates to £0.08 per day
H&B Buy one get one half price deal = £11.47 for 200 capsules =£0.29 per day
H&B Buy one get the other for £0.01 deal = £7.66 for 200 capsules =£0.19 per day
Even if Holland and Barrett offered you buy one get 3 free it would still be = £0.09 per day
Do H&B offer fantastic deals? NO you just assume that because if it is on offer it is cheaper.
Your Independent Health Store offers you great value and great service every day so why not call in and get real value for money.
