What makes Vitacost.com unique?
While most of the companies operating in this industry do pricing of their products with the mindset that no matter what may be the cost, if an individual is health conscious he will buy the product, however, Vitacost believes in taking the 'cost' out of healthy living by offering affordable products at attractive discounts.
