When purchasing online, the cost is $21.13 per bottle, saving you 30%. If you buy 3+ you save 5%. If you buy 12+ you save 10%. We find this to be not such a great discount as there are options online offering you much bigger discounts for bulk purchases. What it doesn’t inform you straight away is that the shipping costs you $13.69 so the actual total is $34.82.
There is no guarantee. The guarantee depends from which health site you buy this particular product from.
