Swanson Health Products Review And ~~Giveaway~~

Founded in 1969, Swanson Health Products is the realization of one man’s dream of bringing wellness to the world. Today, the company carries on that dream, reaching millions of health-conscious people in the United States and around the world.

As SHP grows it has a greater opportunity to give back to the community that nurtured it. SHP and its employees support Fargo and its residents through donations of time and money to numerous ventures like United Blood Services, Holiday Clearing Bureau, Big Brothers, Big Sisters, Roger Maris Cancer Center, Fargo Senior Commission Meals on Wheels, Special Olympics, Cass County Health, United Way, and much more. The company is the headline sponsor of the Health and Fitness Expo at the Fargo Marathon. The mission of the Fargo Marathon and Health Expo is to provide a community supported, nationally recognized, quality running event that attracts athletes of all ages and abilities to the Fargo-Moorhead area and promotes health and fitness.

“We take our responsibilities of corporate citizenship very seriously,” said Lee Swanson. "Fargo has been very good to us. This is our hometown and it is our duty to support the community in any way we can.”
Of course the main focus of SHP is taking care of its customers. “We treat people like we like to be treated,” Lee said. "One of our major concerns from the very beginning was that our customers would feel like we were treating them like real people, not just numbers or dollar signs. We believe that our customers are our most important assets. That’s why we try to deal with our customers on a personal, one-to-one basis, not through pre-recorded messages.”

“I like the way L.L. Bean Company describes a customer,” Lee said. “They say ‘a customer is the most important person ever in this company—in person or by mail. A customer is not dependent on us, we are dependent on him. A customer is not an interruption of our work, he is the purpose of it. We are not doing a favor by serving him, he is doing us a favor by giving us the opportunity to do so. A customer is not someone to argue or match wits with. Nobody ever won an argument with a customer. A customer is a person who brings us his wants. It is our job to handle them profitably to him, and to ourselves’.”

"Besides treating our customers well," said Lee, "we are in the unique position of being able to offer products direct to customers without going through a middle-man. Because of that fact, we are able to save customers 50% to 70% on their nutritional supplement expenditures. And those savings are on some of the highest quality products in the world. We bend over backwards to bring the finest ingredients to our customers at the best prices possible."

Swanson features top brand ingredients, like Pycnogenol® pine bark extract, CitriMax® Garcinia cambogia, LipoSan ULTRA® chitosan, Tonalin® CLA, ChromeMate™ chromium, Phase 2® white kidney bean extract, Palmetto Pure® organic saw palmetto, Albion® chelated minerals, Ubiquinol CoQ10, Lyc-O-Mato® lycopene, and many more.

Today, the company continues to expand its selection of diet and weight loss supplements, natural products for hair, skin and nail health, healthy foods (featuring many organic options, as well as green foods like spirulina and chlorella) and products for special diets, including vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and kosher concerns.

SHP goes another step beyond its competitors by offering powerful guarantees. All products are backed by a 100% Satisfaction, Money-Back Guarantee and Double the Difference Lowest Price Guarantee. If you are not satisfied with your purchase for any reason, simply return the unused portion for a full refund of the purchase price. If you find a product priced lower in any competitor’s catalog, let us know and we’ll refund you two times the price difference.

As SHP moves closer to its 45th anniversary, Lee Swanson speaks to the company’s success. “At Swanson Health Products, we treat every customer like we would treat a good friend or neighbor, and I think most people appreciate that. When you shop with Swanson, you can expect fast, friendly, personal service every time. Unlike most other companies, when you call Swanson, you get to talk to a real person, not a machine. That means if you have questions, you get answers. If you have a problem with your order, you get the personal attention you need to solve it promptly. It’s hard to put a dollar value on service like that, but I think it makes a huge difference. When all is said and done, our affordable prices are probably the main reason most of our customers first start shopping with Swanson, but our outstanding customer service is the main reason they keep coming back. It’s like my dad said back at the beginning, ‘the satisfaction and goodwill of our valued customers is our most important asset’.”

Swanson sent me a wide variety of products to try!!

Here is a list of the great items I was sent-

Dr.Woods Pure Tea Tree Castile Soap
--This soap has a manly smell to it, which Ben loves (me too when he uses it!!)  What I like the best is that it can be used everywhere; hands, face, as shampoo etc!!

Canus Lait De Chevre Goats Milk Body Wash (Two Fragrances)
--I love how Goats milk soap makes your skin so smooth and silky.  It really moisturizes and makes you feel great!!

Canus Lait De Chevre Goats Milk Lotion (Two Fragrances)
--I swear I have died and gone to heaven with these!!  My skin is always dry.  I wash my hands a lot (mail is pretty dirty!!) so I am always using lotion.  After taking a nice soothing bath with Goats milk soap, I use the lotion.  It adds a layer of protection and really helps the dryness!!  I also love the fact that these come in pump bottles.  It makes it very easy to apply!!

Canus Goats Milk Soap Bars (Four Fragrances)
--I use the body wash in the shower and the bar soap for hand washing.  Again I can't tell you how great this soap feels on your skin and how smooth it makes it!!  Plus it smells great!!

Giovanni Deep Moisture Shampoo
--I can't describe the smell except to say it is a nice light scent.  I have what they call horsey hair.  It is always frizzy and very thick.  I have a hard time managing it and keeping the frizz down.  This shampoo did help a lot with the frizz.  I wont say I didn't have any, but it did calm it down a lot more then my usual soap. 

BWC Natural Leave In Conditioner
--This leave in did help me with my frizzes, but I had one problem with it.  I didn't care for the smell.  It's hard to describe, but it smelt like a hospital does.  Kind of sterile. 

Toms Crystal Confidence Deodorant
--I loved the fact that this deodorant was clear.  It did not leave any of those horrible white clumps.  It also protected from any smell!!  I wish it had a fragrance to it though.  I like to smell pretty!!

Jason Apricot Deodorant Stick
--I have never used a deodorant that smells like apricots, but I did really like this one.  It had a subtle scent so it wasn't over powering.  If it only came as a clear roll on I would have been in heaven.

Now Solutions Peppermint Chapstick
--When they say peppermint, they mean it!!  This has a very heavy peppermint smell.  It reminded me of Christmas!!  It glides on smooth and does last for a couple hours. 

Swanson Ultra Superfood Complex Dietary Supplement
--I am not sure what to say about this.  Ben has been using it for the last couple weeks.  His hunger hasn't been as great as it was, but I honestly can not say 100% for sure that it is because of the supplement.  He did say it goes down easy!!

Pure Ghee Clarified Butter
--At first I wasn't sure how to use this, but I decided to use it with stir fried veggies.  I try not to use too much butter and fatty foods in this house.  We usually use oil.  This butter has a very unique creamy taste to it.  It tasted great with the veggies.  The kids loved it.  I then experimented even further and used it in sugar cookies.  Again it tasted great.  Ghee is free from salts, and trans fats.  That makes me very happy!!

Swanson carry's a wide variety of name brand products as well like Burt's Bees (another favorite of mine!!)

I am very happy to be able to give one lucky reader a Swanson Insulated Lunch Bag, Canus Lait De Chevre Goats Milk Body Wash and Goats Milk Bar Soap!!
