Where to buy protein in Switzerland? (protein shakes for bodybuilding)

Hi,

Do you recommend me iHerb, or do you know a better online shop in Switzerland?

I would buy the ON if I could find it for a reasonable price here.


Thank you.

Re: Where to buy protein in Switzerland?

There's quite a variety; which protein are you interested in? I hear the Endoplasmic Reticulum has quite a comprehensive selection.

Cheaper from iHerb.com, arrives in 3-4 days (record was 48 hours) with their 8usd postage option. I have used them many times, much better selection of multivitamins, fish oil etc too.

10usd off first order with this link http://www.iherb.com?rcode=ZRG608

It is not cheap here... I have used them in the past:
http://www.powerfood.ch
They also have shops that you can visit (same prices as online)
http://www.powerfood.ch/content/de/P...er-Region.html

I might try importing next time from http://www.discount-supplements.co.uk but it would have to be a big order to be worth it.

I can totally recommend iHerb, great selection, fantastic logistics, as I said fastest order arrived less than 48 hours after ordering, cheap prices considering the relatively cheap shipping. I have used them at least a dozen times.

Do you know which shipping company they use, and how much they charge for import fees (not the sales tax which I guess is fixed at 8%, but the fee that they charge you for clearing the customs)?

I don't order so much from abroad these days, especially smaller orders because some couriers charge outrageous fees. I once had to pay DHL more than the value of the order itself. For big order it is OK as the fee is usually flat and it works out as a small percentage of the total amount.

I'm afraid they ship through Golgi, I heard it takes forever...

I just tried www.nu3.ch and I'm quite happy with them. I got a cheap bag of pure whey and I mix it up with milk and frozen berries. Or a banana and cinnamon. I'm actually starting to like that stuff

Shipping companies you have a choice but best option is DHL for 8 bucks. Since protein and vitamins are a foodstuff, its only 2.5% VAT so with the import exemption you can buy upto c.200chf product without VAT. I only ever paid import duty once, when my shipment was over 5kg, which triggers duty I discovered on complaining. The site shows you the weight of product you have ordered, which I keep at 7-8lbs to allow for packing. It really is a pleasant experience. If you are going to order please use the referer link and get your 10buck off. http://www.iherb.com?rcode=ZRG608

I personally prefer Scitec, so http://scitecnutrition.ch , but tried Powerfood a few times because they have a shop close to my place. Their stuff is pretty good as well.

Re: Where to buy protein in Switzerland? (protein shakes for bodybuilding)

I know your looking for protein shakes, but as someone who has just recently been increasing their protein, I could recommend simply trying out Quark.
2.- = 100 g = 55 calories = 13 g of protein. Pretty good deal imo.

Re: Where to buy protein in Switzerland? (protein shakes for bodybuilding)

There is a shop in Wadenswil that is really good, its right acrossed from the trainstation.

I still always order from Bodybuilder.com though. The prices are good and the cost of shipping isnt awful and I get the kind of supplements I like.

Re: Where to buy protein in Switzerland? (protein shakes for bodybuilding)

I recommend http://www.vitaminexpress.org/de/

They have a lot of stuff at very low prices, also delivery to Switzerland is free if you purchase for more than 49€ (dont get over 150€ to avoid taxes! make three orders of 60€ instead of one 180€).

I've been ordering there several times and always happy!

Manor has a small but decent selection of protein powder. I've also seen it at Athleticum.

I either go to Singen in Germany or order from NU3.ch they have myprotein stuff when I like and with the flavourless versions can build my own stacks.

Re: Where to buy protein in Switzerland? (protein shakes for bodybuilding)

I used to order on bodybuilding.com until I got one of those DHL fantasy tax charge invoices that added over 1/3rd of the total order value.

Now I only buy from germany and go get the parcels myself. German prices on ebay & online stores are hard to beat. The exact same product costs almost twice as much here in Switzerland.

If quality wasn't a concern I'd buy british products (and US imports) but I prefer german products (specially those bulk foil packs).

Re: Where to buy protein in Switzerland? (protein shakes for bodybuilding)

If you fancy a trip to Konstanz there is a bodybuilding shop near the shopping centre where I usually get my protein powders from. The guys who work in the shop are built like beasts. It looks like you could hit them with a 2x4 and it wouldn't phase them.

My current favorite one is https://www.andro-shop.com/
They ship from Germany, remove the sales tax if you ship to Switzerland and do free shipping over 150 eur!
Their prices are very competitive too.

Andro, the Greek prefix meaning male, man, or masculine.
