Puritan's Pride-It's Where I Get Most of My Supplements! (and a Giveaway)

Puritan's Pride Vitamins


I have been purchasing Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) and COQ10 for many years from Puritan's Pride. It all started when one of my doctor's decided I needed Lipitor (a cholesterol lowering medicine). Little did either of us know that I would get a side effect that very few people get. It began to eat into my muscle function. My doctor said there was nothing that could be done--HA-like I would believe him. I went on line and did a lot of research and from what I was reading COQ10 helps the heart (which is after all a muscle)--so I began to buy it--I ran into a big problem-I could not swallow the large pills!! Then I noticed that Alpha Lipoic Acid may make other meds and supplements work better! Again--pills too large. I came across an ad for Puritan's Pride and went in to see the size of the pills---YEAH--small!!! And you know what--I did get a lot of my muscle function back!! Fast forward about 10 years and I had changed doctors. He does believe in both traditional and non traditional so when I told him what had happened and what I was still taking--he had only one question--where are you buying them--I told him Puritan's Pride and he smiled--he uses them too!!
Now remember-I am not a doctor and am not giving out medical advice--always check with your doctor BEFORE trying to cure yourself!!

Thanks for highlighting which supplements you get the most out of! I love CoQ10 products and would love to try the Nu Stevia!

I know someone who takes the CQ10 regularly. It's a little pricey, but def. worth it! Now I'm headed over to enter the contest. :)

My Doctor wants me on Cholesterol meds too and I refuse to take them due to 1. I heard the horror stories which to me do not seem all that rare. 2. I prefer natural meds when possible. I am so relieved to find your post and will talk to my doctor about this and begin using asap if possible. Honestly I would just go for it but since I have had type 1 diabetes for 45 years I had better check first :)

The kids and I take a lot of supplements, so I will have to check the prices there! I do think supplements are the way to go! So many drugs have bad side effects!

Carmen Perez said...

My parents get all of their supplements from Puritan Pride, they love it. They also take CQ10 regularly.

I've never tried Puritan's Pride before but we'll definitely have to keep an eye out for them next time we're shopping. Thanks for sharing!

Michelle said...

Thank you for this wonderful advice. I'm a huge fan of using natural remedies whenever possible. I will definitely keep Puritan's Pride in mind.

Miranda Myrabev said...

I am so bad at taking supplements but its good to hear people who take supplements that actually work for them. I need a routine and maybe I will remember

Lisa Codina said...

I really need to figure out which supplements I should take on a regular basis! I know I need iron because I don't eat meat and I'm borderline anemic!

Nancy said...

Oh my gosh, I had goosebumps reading this. I was recently diagnosed with high cholesterol, but not to the point I am to take lipitor yet. I'm so shocked to hear that it ended up eating into your muscle functioning and your Doctor was basically like HUH - TOUGH. That is so scary! :( Glad you were smart enough to figure out there are clearly other options.

This is a new brand for me! Thank you for hosting a giveaway so we have a chance to take a closer look at the brand quality.

Mary Madalene said...

We have a few products here that work just like Puritans. Mind you I usually only take vit c and iron supplements I will definitely have a look around.

Ourfamilyworld said...

We all take supplements at home, but mine is just Vitamin C. I've never heard of this brand, but I will check this out.

Samantha said...

I use puritan's pride, but have never used these supplements.

Stephanie Pass said...

Oh my goodness, I've never heard of this side effect. I'm so glad you can find a supplement that can help you.

Shaney Vijendranath said...

My husband is big on supplements but I hardly take them because I hate swallowing tablets. :( Thanks for introducing me to the brand.

Ron Leyba said...

Supplements like these is what I need right now too. Thanks for sharing your firsthand thoughts about it.

Rebecca Swenor said...

This goes to show you that not all doctors know what they are talking about. I am so glad you found a great doctor. I will have to check out these products for sure. Thanks for sharing. Good for you by the way for figuring this out on your own.

Tatanisha Pitts-Worthey said...

I've great reviews of Puritan's Pride from friends and colleagues. They're on reasonable price which is also good. I'm happy you've found the right supplement/brand for you, I hate BIG pills too!

April Mims said...

I've got a regular supplement routine that I follow. I try to get everything from food but that's not always possible.

rosemary palmer said...

I've never heard of these but have been thinking that supplements are needed. Thanks for these to check out.

Marie Moody said...

I tried Liptor once, and it did absolutely nothing for me. This is a very informative Post. I think I'll reread it just so I make sure exactly what you saying. Thanks for sharing.

Addi Ganley said...

Puritan's Pride is a great brand. We have used it for years. It's one of those no brainers, when buying supplements I don't want to guess at the quality. With Puritan's Pride there is no guesswork involved.

Krystal Butherus said...

I haven't used this brand in a long time but it should be worth a shot. Supplements are helpful!
