People say that investing in your health is the biggest investment! But the black market has taken its toll on your health too!

Most expensive but fashionable items tend to be copied and sold on the black market. The dark side is that counterfeit supplements are being produced and sold in developing countries like India. This is because imported brands are more expensive due to shipping, customs, and overhead costs, meaning that if the starting supplement cost is 3,500 in the US, it will cost around 7,000 in India.

Due to rising prices, most people in the bodybuilding market who are students and teens are forced to choose other cheap options due to their budget.
