FAQs

Here's a number of our most Frequently Asked Questions... and their answers, too. If you can't find the answer to your question here (or on any other Help pages) then please drop us a line. You can use the form on the Contact Us page or you can email Customer Services at services@healthplus.co.uk.

Products

How do I find the product I'm looking for?

There are two ways to search for a product. Firstly, you can narrow down your search by selecting the correct category, i.e. Joint Health, or your can use the search facility in the top left hand corner of the website, which will search the entire Health Plus range, either for product, nutrient or ailment / condition.

How do I find out information about a product?

When you have decided on a product you will see a short description with an image of the product, its price and a 'Buy Now' button. Click on a product to view a complete description, including the ingredients and listing and instructions for use.

What's all this "mg" stuff?

All of our products are measured in either milligrams (mg) or micrograms (µg). In the same way that there are 1,000 grams in a kilogram, there are 1,000 milligrams in a gram, and 1,000 micrograms in a milligram. You may also see microgram abbreviated as "mcg", but it means the same thing.

So what about "iu's" then?

Vitamins A, D and E are measured in weight but also in activity, and for these vitamins it's the activity measure that's the important one. International Units (iu) are a way of standardising the activity level across the different forms of each vitamin that are available.

Why are there "cautions" on some products?

As part of the UK's fight against the restrictive EU Food Supplements Directive, in an effort to stave off the introduction of ridiculously low Maximum Permitted Levels, industry leaders and the Food Standards Agency agreed that for certain vitamins and minerals warning notices would be voluntarily added to product labels. These warnings are intended to advise consumers that, in certain sensitive individuals, certain effects may be noticeable.

While agreeing with the need to fight the EU Food Supplements Directive - and so following industry's guidance and using the warnings on our products - we would like to stress to our customers that the effects noted are seen in only a tiny percentage of people and some have only been seen in studies that have since been called into question by experts in the field.

Your account

Do I have to register to be able to buy from you?

Not at all. Unlike a lot of sites, you don't have to register to be able to shop with us. But registration does have its benefits; you'll only have to enter your details once, your address and delivery details will be pre-filled for you as soon as you log in, and you'll also be able to keep track of orders and view your order history. Finally, you'll also be eligible for periodic special offers that won’t be available to non-registered customers.

How do I register as a new user?

To register as a new user click on 'Register' in the 'Your account' box to the right of the page. Then just enter your details in the fields provided on the registration form (which we’ve kept as short as possible, so it should only take a couple of minutes). Any field that is marked with an asterisk (*) needs to be filled in to complete the registration process.

When I've registered, how do I log in?

When revisiting the site in the future enter your 'Username' and 'Password' in the 'Your account' box to the right of the page and click the 'Log In' button.

Who do I contact if I'm having trouble logging in?

You can contact customer services on 01323 872277 or email services@healthplus.co.uk. When you contact us, please let us have as much information as possible about the problem you are having and what you've already done to try and solve it.

Can I view or change my account details?

Once logged in you can view and change your account details by clicking on 'Modify Profile', in the 'Your account' box to the right of the page. Once there, you can change your billing address, shipping address, etc.

How can I change my password?

You can change your password by going to 'Modify Profile'. You’ll find a 'Change password' link at the bottom of the page and when you click it you'll be taken to a page where you'll be asked to enter your old password and then your new one.

What happens if I forget my password?

There’s no need to worry should you happen to forget your password. Just click on the 'Forgotten your password?' link in the 'Your account' box, which will take you to a page where you'll be asked to enter your username the email address you used for registration. Once you click submit you'll be sent a link to a page where you can enter a new password.

If you can’t remember which email address you used to register, send an email to services@healthplus.co.uk and we’ll send a temporary password to the email address we have on file. If the email address we have on file is no longer valid, you will have to set up a new account as we cannot change account details for you.

Your order

Do you offer free delivery?

We certainly do. All orders that are delivered to a UK address and are £20 or more in value are delivered free of charge. You can upgrade your delivery to first class post, recorded delivery or courier during checkout for only a small fee. For UK addressed orders that are between £10 and £20 in value, there is a charge of £1.95 for delivery and for orders below £10 in value, the charge is £2.45.

If your order is for delivery to a non-UK address, then there will be a postage charge to pay whatever the value of your order. This is because to enable us to keep the cost of the products down as low as we can, we cannot absorb the cost of postage. However, all charges are kept as low as possible. Full details of all the postage charges can be found on our Payment and Delivery page.

I've got a coupon / discount code. How do I use it?

If you've received a coupon code or a discount code from us, to apply it to your order just enter the code in the 'Do you have a discount code or coupon?' box towards the bottom of the Shopping Cart page. Please remember, though, that you can only use one coupon or discount code per order and it must be entered EXACTLY as it was sent to you or it will not apply. We'll do our best to make sure that any incorrectly entered codes are still applied, but we can't guarantee it!

Coupon and discount codes must be entered at the 'Shopping Cart' page and cannot be entered after you have clicked the 'Checkout' button. To make sure your discount is applied to your order, please be sure to enter your code before starting the 'Checkout' process.

All coupon and discount codes have expiry dates, so if you've entered the code correctly and your order total still isn't updated, it is probably because that code has expired. Some codes, also, will be of the 'use once' variety, so if you've used it on a previous order you won't be able to use it again.

Finally, some codes will only be valid for use by customers with a registered account, who are logged in. If the code you are entering does not appear to be working, log in and try again.

Do you offer discounts for larger orders?

Not at the moment. But we do offer competitively priced, high potency products that offer excellent value for money. And, if you spend over £20, there's no postage charge for UK deliveries. We do, from time to time, have great special offers that make Health Plus even greater value so check back often to see what the latest offer is.

I've placed an order but not received an email about it

Our website automatically sends out emails when you place your order (Order Confirmation) and when we ship your order (Order Complete). If you do not receive these emails, there are usually two main reasons:

  1. Because the emails are automatically generated, online email providers like Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo often treat these emails as spam or junk, and so route them to those folders rather than to the Inbox. Please check your spam or junk folder to see if the email is there.
  2. The email address you've entered is incorrect. If your email address isn't entered exactly as it should be, then emails will not be delivered. We do not always receive a bounce message in these instances, so will not always know the emails have not got through. If you haven't received your email, please check that the email address on your account is 100% correct.
