iHerb is a company that sells nutritional supplements as well at other healthy living products in the United States and internationally. iHerb is constantly expanding and boasts one of the largest selections of high quality nutritional products across the entire globe. Created in 1996, iHerb has been selling online and promoting the benefits of St. John’s Wort and believes that they are the company that offers the best value overall on healthy products.
On the website, there are over 35,000 name brand products that have been discounted quite significantly. iHerb compares itself to shopping at a brick and mortar store for natural products.The success of iHerb can be attributed to repeat orders as well as word-of-mouth recommendations from satisfied and loyal customers. A few of the brands carried by iHerb are NOW, Source Naturals, Doctor’s Best, Natural Factors, and Nutrex.
The website is organized in a way that highlights the bestselling products in different categories, as well as arranges products by the condition they are used for. There are grocery items, beauty items, bath items, herbs, as well as supplements. Products for blood sugar, weight loss, cholesterol, aging, men’s health, and women’s health can also be found on iHerb.
There is not a section for customer reviews or testimonials for the website itself. Each product is on its own page and includes a rating and reviews from customers that have purchased it.
Scam Adviser detects that iHerb is suspicious, and gives it a 50% safety rating. Many of the comments on Scam Adviser praise the company, while the negative reviews come from international customers that claim to have never received their packages.
iHerb has daily and weekly specials updated on their website each day.
Offers.com gives quite a few coupons that can be used site-wide.
iHerb is a great resource for customers to browse and purchase items found at many health food stores with prices that are greatly discounted. There are different brands of the same item so that customers have a variety to choose from, and the brands carried are recognized nationally. Customers can view the products that they are interested in and see what other customers have to say about it and how they have used it. The convenience of having all of these products in one place, combined with the reduced prices makes it a great resource for those looking for a one-stop shop.
The website is visually pleasing and is quite easy to use without being over simplified. The deals offered are reasonable and the wide array of products offered is admirable. Unfortunately, the site does not have a place for reviews and customer experiences, so all that potential customers have to look for are other review sites. Scam Adviser gives good insight into the problems associated with international shipping. All of the negative reviews are from international customers and this may deter a larger pool of potential customers. A page for testimonials would be an important asset to the site. iHerb receives 3 out of 5 stars.
