A Vendor Comparison
Let's dispense with the stereotypes first. After the collapse of the Soviet Union Russian businessmen had a well-deserved reputation for shady dealings. I wouldn't blame anyone for being a little skeptical of buying Nootropics or anti-aging medicines from a Russian source. But, that was 30 years ago, times have changed and now, frankly, you should be skeptical of everyone. Government regulating agencies like the FDA are hopelessly corrupt and captured by big pharma who is probably sponsoring your family doctor's next luxurious vacation. The internet is a double-edged sword when it comes to your health; Amazon sells "health" supplements tainted with catastrophic amounts of toxic heavy metals but the internet also gives you an unparalleled ability to sniff out the scams and figure out what actually works.
