Terms of Service

We sell dietary supplements on

We don’t really have any terms of service. It’s like you’re buying from any other retailer through Amazon. Check the Amazon terms of service for details.

We offer a full 100% money back guarantee on every order.

If you’re not satisfied, you get a full refund. Or we’ll send you a replacement bottle if you’d rather have that.

We also 3rd party lab test each batch of our supplements at an independent ISO accredited laboratory. Here are the lab test results.

Privacy Policy

We’re not a big company. We don’t aggregate user data and sell it to 3rd parties.

Here’s what we do collect. We use Google Analytics and similar tools to see website traffic in aggregate. I’m sure these have complex setups where we can see people’s specific demographic data. But honestly I can’t figure out how to use them.

We might have other software at some point in the future. Stuff like Crazy Egg heatmaps to see where people click or how far they scroll through each article.

Again, we really don’t care to creep on people. We don’t have the time and resources and have literally zero incentive to do so. We don’t know who you are or what you’re doing on our website. We can’t access your personal info.

We sell through Amazon and they don’t even give us customer order data at all any more. So if you contact us asking about a specific order, if we have to ship out a replacement bottle, we have to actually ask for your shipping address along with your Amazon order number, because honestly we have a very limited set of data any more.

Every website can see your IP address, which is usually linked to your physical location. So if you’re really paranoid, the best thing you can do is to run all your internet traffic through a VPN. But again, we really don’t care to pour through user logs just to find out some of our customers live in one city or another. We have much better things to do.
