Weight Loss Supplements May Be More Dangerous Than Beneficial

August 19, 2015 2 min read

If you're someone who's ever struggled with weight loss, you may have held out hope that a miracle weight loss pill to help you out. Countless dieters have turned to weight loss supplements which are often touted as 'miracle pills' to get the results they desire. But these quick fixes could be doing a serious detriment to your health. Let's get one thing cleared up right away. There is no supplement, powder or pill that can shed fat from your body without you making a change to your diet and exercise plan. Even with the inclusion of a weight loss supplement, little to no extra weight is shed. There has never been an informercial diet aid that really worked, no matter how many bottles the ad claimed were sold. As for the supplements themselves, the diet aid industry is largely unregulated. Many 'herbal' or 'natural' labeled pills are anything but, and cause your body harm. https://www.instagram.com/p/BG0o2f6AHQU/?taken-by=bodyrockofficial “None of these products has been adequately studied, and any or all might be harmful." says Dr. Morton Tavel, clinical professor emeritus at Indiana University School of Medicine. The ingredients often contain little of the promoted 'herb' or natural compound on the package. In some cases, supplements have been known to cause severe reactions with medications or have traces of stimulants that created heart and blood pressure problems. Taking good care of your body, eating healthy, avoiding processed foods and working out is the best way to reach your weight loss goals. No magic potions or quick fixes!

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.

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.
