Our Thoughts
Our son has a laundry list of health issues, most of which are genetic, so we help balance his body chemistry with supplements.  And of course, we want great quality supplements but we also want them at a price we can afford, because he'll need supplements for the rest of his life.
CAM Formulas is an online retailer which carries over 150 brands, and they generously offered to send me a product of my choice for the purpose of this review.  Of all the supplements my son needs, CAM Formulas carries several, which is awesome because normally we get these right from his doctor's office, but when the doctor's office is out of stock, it becomes problematic to source the same supplements at a comparable price, once you take shipping into account.
I chose to review Klaire Labs Vital-Zymes Chewables, which is a comprehensive digestive enzyme supplement. 

Finding digestive enzymes that work for our son was a difficult and very messy road. He has a metabolic disorder, so without help, his body does not digest food properly.  I've seen whole foods come out looking about the same as they went in!  Many digestive enzymes out there contain bromelain, however, his body does not tolerate bromelain in any form beyond actual pineapple. Now, when I say it was a messy road to find the right digestive enzymes, I mean MESSY.  Bromelain in digestive enzyme supplements gives him the worst diapers you can imagine.  It doesn't even matter how tiny of a sprinkle he gets; the result is the same.  Klaire Labs Vital-Zymes Chewables was recommended by our son's doctor because it is a great quality supplement and does not contain bromelain.  With Klaire Labs Vital-Zymes Chewables' help, he has finally been digesting food and gaining weight. 
CAM Formulas carries quite a few of the supplements our son needs, such as ProThera's Taurine & L-MethylFolate, and Jarrow Formulas' Citicoline.
What's great about CAM Formulas - when you order over $25, shipping is FREE.  Their prices at retail (when not on sale) are very comparable to what I can get right in our son's doctor's office.  They often offer sales, discounts, and coupons, and will match (and possibly beat!) any competitor's price (excluding Amazon or Ebay).  They also have a climate controlled distribution facility, so no worries that your supplements have been sitting in extreme temps.
