Balkan Pharmaceuticals Original vs Fake
On the internet, there is a lot of information about the persons who received fake Balkan Pharmaceuticals products. Yes, there are a lot and we have been contacted by other bodybuilders that they have bought from other sources and received fake products.
Now we will show how to see the difference between the real and the fake ones.
First, there is no website where to check if the source is an official supplier or not and never was.
Check the authenticity of the Balkan Pharmaceuticals product
Balkan Pharmaceuticals products have unique UPIC codes that can be checked officially on this website https://b-p.md/.
The tabs - on the back, each blister is covered with a hologram foil. On the face are imprinted the product's series, expiration date (month and year) and unique UPIC 14 character code (letters and numbers). The UPIC code can be found only on the blister.
The amps - each amp is labeled and imprinted the product name, the active ingredient, dosage per ml, volume, form type, product series, expiration date, and the 8-letter UPIC Code.
The vials - each amp is labeled and imprinted the product name, the active ingredient, dosage per ml, volume, form type, product series, expiration date, and the 14 character code (letters and numbers) UPIC Code.
On the https://b-p.md/ should be filled with the UPIC code from 14 characters for tabs and vials, and 8 letters for amps. When filling in the UPIC code, the letters must be capitalized.
Fake vs Original products
We have received photos from our clients of fake products that they have bought from other sources were the products are cheaper than on our website. The most important that a small part of the products that they received are original and can be checked on the official website, the other part is fake with fake UPIC codes. When the sources have been asked about the UPIC, they just told them that it is just an error at the Balkan Pharmaceuticals servers and always claimed that if you could verify a part of the products, then everything is real and original.
Here is a photo of the fake vs original amps that our clients have sent us.
You can see that the original amp has other forms and the box the protection layer is not stuck on the box but it has a built-in hologram that can't be removed. Even the colors of the boxes are different.
Here is a photo of the fake vs original tabs that our clients have sent us.
The same situation about the boxes as the amp version. And look closely at the tabs, the color doesn't match.
If you identify such type of fake products, ask the money back from who you have bought it and check twice the product before you use it.
Balkan Pharmaceuticals is a big company and a known one, even if they have developed new technics of security it doesn't mean that there will not be fake on the market. Even other big brands are being faked and sold as original online. Before you buy, check the source if it is real and even after that check, if the product has UPIC code or other security code, if it is original and real.
Best regards and pay attention to what you buy from the internet.
