Importing dietary supplements into mexico

I live in guadalajara - Mexico and I am importing bulk BCAA (branched chain amino acids) powder and some bulk citrulline malate powder from india into mexico.

These are dietary supplements and are absolutely legal. However, they are sent in blister transparent packets. So i doubt if the mexican customs might mistake it for drugs and confiscate it

These materials are sourced from Rochem International - US and all the required documents like MSDS,COA, certificate of origin etc are in place. However the shipping company is bringing in a word of caution that they will not be held responsible if the package is confiscated or deported by mexican customs and that the consignee has to bear the expenses.

Please advise on this.

It would be better if there any mexican customs brokers over here.

Thank you!

you should check with Vandelay Industries. I think they are getting out of the export business to focus on the import business.

I don't really believe too much in dietary supplements as some of them have different chemicals in it. Although some have a better overall structure because they use organic materials. But more often than not I will rely on a dietary plan and not a supplement for better health. I haven't seen recipes as creatively-effective as this one.
