Christmas and New Year Period
Please note the following deadlines for hair testing and supplements orders to avoid disappointment leading up to the festive season.
Hair Mineral Analysis:
As there is a 21 day turn around time for hair mineral analysis results, to guarantee you receive your results prior to Christmas, please ensure that you send your sample(s) to us by week ending Friday 29th November. We always endeavour to turn around results as quickly as possible, but it is not always possible to reduce the turnaround time. Please note, if your sample is insufficient (not heavy enough), the delay caused may mean that you will not receive your results until the New Year.
The cut off date for orders of supplements via the Resource Centre prior to Christmas will be Wednesday 18th December. Please also be aware because of the demands on the Royal Mail Postal Service during the festive season, there may be delays or disruptions, which are beyond our control.
Normal services will resume on Thursday 2nd January 2014.
We wish you all a happy and healthy festive season.

A Fruity Fertility Tip
DID YOU KNOW.....
Pomegranates are one of the oldest fruits which seem to have been considered as a symbol for fertility for thousands of years.
They are a good source of Antioxidants( they contain Flavanoids), Vitamin C, Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic acid), Folic acid and they also contain Vitamin A, Vitamin E and Fibre.
In a study in rats, it was concluded that pomegranates may help improve male fertility, in terms of sperm count and motility, due to the antioxidants found in the pomegranate providing some protection against damage to fatty acids in the sperm.
