Don't Give Up on Gluten: Try This Pill

July 22, 2015 2 min read

An icy cold beer. A warm basket of bread. A heaping bowl of pasta. For many of us, these are comforts we cater to either on a regular basis, on a cheat day, or perhaps when having a spontaneous craving. But for those with celiac disease, they are the center of a red circle with a slash through it. N-O.  Celiac disease, an immune reaction to gluten, which is found in wheat, barley and rye, as well as many foods made with these grains, keeps a plethora of people from digging into the best bits. But thanks to the introduction of a new pill, those suffering from the disease as well as general gluten intolerance just may be able to chew off that piece of bread and wash it down with a brew once more. The pill, which was developed by researchers at the University of Alberta in Canada, is made from the yolks of chicken eggs. When ingested, this natural supplement binds to gluten in the stomach, preventing intestinal damage by neutralizing the protein. Gone may be gluten intolerance sufferers' days of toughing it out for a taste of spaghetti, only to be hit with symptoms like bloating, fatigue, and other consequential outcomes like autoimmune complications and cancer. The supplement, led by associate professor Hoon Sunwoo, has proven successful in clinical trials in Canada. The hope is to have this miracle pill available to the general public within the next 3 years in Canada, and soon after in the United States and Europe. What are your thoughts? Would you be willing to take this pill - or does it seem too good to be true? Source: POPSUGAR Do you follow us on Instagram?

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

BodyRock Equipment

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. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

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.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
