September 28, 2015 1 min read

It’s nearing that time of year again. Cold and Flu Season is the perfect time to jump-start your immune system and keep your body balanced so you don’t get yourself and your family sick. Time to turn to a Citrus Berry Smoothie.   This Blendtec recipe uses the cleansing, anti-bacterial properties of pineapples to increase your natural defences against germs. The vibrant tropical fruit contains bromelain, a powerful compound found deep in it’s lush fibres. This compound staves off infection by reducing inflammation within the body. But it doesn’t just stop at the common cold. When bromelain is coupled with the antioxidants found in pineapples, it quickly goes to work preventing bigger issues like cell damage, asthma attacks, osteoarthritis and even colon cancer. Adding agave nectar into this blend makes it sweet, and can also help flush away bacteria and toxins throughout your system that are threatening your immunity. Agave protects wounds from becoming infected and is highly antimicrobial. To make your own cold and flu preventing Citrus Berry Smoothie, add these lush ingredients into your Blendtec. 12   fl oz orange juice 1   banana 1⁄4   cup plain yogurt 1   cup fresh pineapple chunks 2   cups frozen strawberries 1 tbsp agave nectar, optional 2 cup ice cubes Select ‘Smoothie’ or simply blend until smooth (for about 1 minute).

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 4-6 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.

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.

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.
