Purchasing supplements on-line can save you lots of money vs nationwide supplement store chains or even your local mom and pop shop. But what web stores have the best value? I did some comparison shopping.
I compared the following on-line supplement stores:
- bodybuilding.com (BB)
- Bodybuilding Outlet (BBO)
- Bulk Nutrition (BN) (added June 10)
- DPS Nutrition (DPS)
- Global Nutrition Inc (GN)
- Hard Bodies Discount Supplements (HB)
- Supplement Giant (SG)
I compared a variety of supplements that I think are useful, also preferring items sold in bulk. I did not compare HGH products, HMB, or any of the hundreds of other worthless products that are out there. If you’re buying snake oil, does it really matter that one store is selling it for $40 and another $45 a bottle?
A few prohormones are included in the list, although they’ll all become illegal in a matter of weeks, if not days.
COMPARISON – Prices are as listed on June 3, 2004. (Bulk Nutrition from June 10.) No price indicates that store does not care that product.

Bodybuilding Outlet had the best prices, but limited selection. DPS Nutrition had both good prices and a wide selection of products. The most popular web supplement store, bodybuilding.com, had a wide selection, but not very good prices.
