    Question Supplements in India (Bangalore)

    I was thinking of of buying supplements from bb. I stay in Bangalore in India. Can anyone tell me if they've ordered before? Did it reach safely? And what about local suppliers here in Bangalore. I'm looking to buy 100% gold whey protein and micronized creatine powder, both by optimum nutrition.

    Thanks in advance

    Thankyou for the response.

    But what I meant by local suppliers was actually 'retailers' who sell those products by optimum nutrition. Wrong choice of word I guess :P

    No man they don't manufacture here. And they don't retail it directly. The rates at well known retail shops are more than double the rates you guys pay. ON 100% whey gold protein is available for Rs 4k, which is approx equal to 85 USD. The rates are inflated here.

    with shipping costs and taxes you're gonna pay around the same amount. Just buy it locally.

    BB Supplement Stores in bangalore.

    Hi Angad,
    There is the Neulife Store in Koramangala. They are authorized stockists of ON products.

    Other than that you can buy directly from bodybuilding.com. But I would like to warn you in advance of the below:

    When you are placing the order, you may find the direct $ to INR conversion to be cheaper. But when the item is actually delivered, the import duty needs to be paid separately by the buyer, at the time of delivery. For example, 2 months ago, I ordered supplements worth Rs.11000 from bb.com (price arrived after $ to INR conversion).

    When it was delivered, the courier guy gave me a government challan of import duty. Originally I thought I was saving about 7-8k but ended up paying Rs. 6000 as Import Duty.

    Later I googled and found that India Govt. Charges 150% import duty on imported health supplements.


    Good luck with your purchase.
    MIRACLES WILL HAPPEN IF YOU B E L I E V E!

    Thanks for sharing your experience. I used to order few years back from bb.com, now buy locally from legit importers.
    Seems things have deteriorated further.
