There isn't a market that is more confusing and complicated or one where quality and pricing is inconsistent.

One source for purchasing power
With 49% of US consumers taking some form of nutraceutical product (American Dietetic Association), HealthPricer. com is initially focusing on nutrition and dietary supplements. The web site is easy to use and navigate, giving shoppers the ability to search, sort and compare supplements based on detailed product information, including dosage, health category, brand, Internet retailer, product certification and specialty science-based features, such as the ability to sort for products that are animal free, yeast free, gluten/wheat free and sugar free. Based on search criteria indicated by the shopper, HealthPricer. com searches the Internet's top online retailers to find the exact products the shopper is looking for. From a list of the products that match these criteria, the shopper is then able to select those they'd like to price compare. Once a choice has been made HealthPricer. com directly drops those items into a shopping basket at the online health retailer of choice and the purchase is completed. HealthPricer. com will soon expand into other areas of health and wellness including pharmaceuticals and generic drugs, OTC drugs, sports supplements, cosmetics, skin care products and local comparison shopping for health products and services.
