As Britain enters a widely reported Austerity program of spending reviews and pay cuts, many of us are conducting our own spending reviews and perhaps cutting back on some of our ‘would like’ but ‘don’t need’ purchases. Supplements may be one such item that can be cut back on to save a few pennies a month, after all for the most part many of the same benefits can be had from regular food.
Cutting back on the supplement budget doesn’t necessarily mean cutting out altogether, however, and with a growing trend of purchasing popular supplements in bulk, it’s possible to get essentially the same supplements at large reductions on the mainstream, big supplement brands.
See how much you could save by browsing the sites of some popular bulk bodybuilding retailers below.
