I have been extremely staisfied with Healthspan up to now, however, I recently went to order Lutein tablets and discovered that for each pack they sell a donation is made to the Eye Risk charity. This charity carries out animal research which I am completely against so I didn't proceed with the order. I haven't yet contacted Healthspan directly about this yet but intend to do so as I feel it would be better to give customers the choice to opt out from making the donation if they so wish rather than the automatic donation that stands at present.

07 August 2014

A fast and uncomplicated delivery even to Switzerland. Thank You, highly appreciated!
