For many woman, their large posterior can be a source of pride. For others, it can be a source of insecurity. If you are in the latter group, scientists from the University of Oxford have some news that might just change your mind. Turns out, women with naturally occurring ample backsides are more intelligent and more resistant to chronic illnesses!

The study of 16,000 woman found that women with big butts had lower levels of cholesterol and are far more likely to produce hormones that help to metabolize sugar. This means that women with this physical attribute are less likely to have diabetes and heart health problems.

In the female body, a big butt favours leptin and  dinopectina levels. Leptin is a hormone that helps regulate weight while dinopectina is a hormone with anti-inflammatory,  vascular-protective and anti-diabetic properties. The adipose tissues in the buttocks actually traps fatty particles and prevents cardiovascular disease. Similar studies have found that women with large behinds, wide hips and smaller waists may actually live longer.

When it comes to intelligence levels, having a big backside requires having excess levels of Omega 3 fats. Omega 3s have been shown to catalyze brain development. These researchers also found that children born to women with wide hips are intellectually superior to children of slimmer, less curvy women.

If you were looking for one more reason to be proud of your ample booty, this is it!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number.

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
