Penny Pinching and Supplements

Last spring I decided to try Gracie on Mare Magic. Love the results, I noticed a difference, especially when she came in heat. I remember reading somewhere on here about buying the equivalent from health foods stores in bulk online. Where do you guys order it from?

Same with Sand Clear, where is the cheapest place to buy psyllium? What works the best husks or powder?

Thanks!

I would google bulk raspberry leaf and see what comes up - companies have different suppliers and prices. Also, same for psyllium. I buy mine bulk herbs at Earth Fare (actually, I use Chia seeds instead of psyllium because it does the same job with beneficial omegas that help for a shiny coat), but all the bulk herbs are, for the most part, A LOT cheaper than stuff packaged for horses.

A pound feels like it lasts forever - really only 3 or so months, but still! Haha

While I don't know how this places compares price wise to the others listed, when my mom's horse needed the super duper expensive Lamina-Saver and other high dollar supps for serious hoof issues, I bought the herbal ingredients in bulk from here...
Order page bulk herb and spice from Herbalcom.
If I remember right, all the ingredients/herbs are human grade.

Awesome, thanks guys!


I found this website...
Bulk Organic Herbs and Spices
Rasberry leaves and Psyllium husks are about $8 lb. And if you buy 5lbs. You get a 15% discount which almost pays the shipping if I calculated correctly. I think Mare Magic is almost 20$ lb, that is a big difference!

Lockwood, the site you posted had both certified organic from the US and some from Albania, is there a difference other than price?

I honestly don't know. Haven't needed to get anything from them in a while, but about the first thing that comes to mind is perhaps the differences in soils may (or may not) make some difference.
Or perhaps the organic guidelines are different?
I can tell you that at about $100 a jar for LaminaSaver, being able to buy 5 times the herbs for less than 1/4 of the price was a real life saver as the horse was on them long term and they really worked.
