who knows where I can buy good sport supplements in Beijing? I'm looking for example for protein powder and creatin?
Thank you very much.
Go to World Health Store and try their Tri-O-Plex food bars, they're inexpensive healthy snacks with high protein and whole grain. The prices are fair too.
Seriously, just go to ENC - Elite Nutrition Center at Chaowai SOHO. All the good stuff is imported and it's much cheaper than other places. The stuff they carry is the good stuff and no non-name brands. www.chinaenc.com.cn
Augustus: I've heard that one as well, it's an urban legend..
I've done a lot of research regarding the fake supplies claims, and I found that this was a common problem in the states before, but now it's put into system and whoever makes fake products lose their license or something. Don't remember the details right now, but it's 99% safe to buy supplements USA as for today.
How this works in China though, I have no clue about, but I suspect it's way easier to distribute fake shit here. I would guess WHS is the safest bet if you're afraid of "pissing blood" :-) They're a company run by foreigners, imports everything from the states and are professional and passionate about their trade.
I've ordered from ENC before I ordered from WHS.. They gave me wrong taste, but it seemed like the real thing. WHS had great service and delivered fast - and since they didn't have the product I asked for, they gave me a very good discount :)
It's also possible to import directly from the states, or buy from Taobao.. But that's on your own risk and patience :-)
Try the World Health Store.
They have a branch in both Shunyi and CBD.
They have an excellent reputation.
There are a few places where you can get supplements from but The World Health Store is extremely expensive compared to others..
I normally get my protein from www.proteinforchina.com
Cheap and reliable
