The Real thing shop

 The Real Thing takes Social Responsibility seriously. We regularly receive feedback from our valued customers regarding our product offering and its impact on the environment. Consequently we have re-evaluated the use of secondary packaging for the Complementary Medicine range. Secondary packaging in this range is being phased out for all products except that packed into the 75 ml glass bottles and our Mega Omega Fish Oil Range (Natural and Lemon). Current batches are being packed into glass amber bottles only. For your convenience, we have added a recycling logo to remind and encourage recycling. We have also provided a link to The Glass Recycling Company.  Visit their website to find a glass bank closest to you. Alternatively, many retailers have recycling facilities, so make recycling part of your shopping journey! Let us all do our part to recycle, repurpose or reuse to save our planet.

Frequently Asked Question (FAQ's)

 

GENERAL

A general principle to follow when taking medication, is to inform one's healthcare practitioner of any additional medication or supplements i.e. currently being taken or starting new. This minimizes potential interactions and allows the healthcare practitioner to monitor the effectiveness of the prescribed medication while you concurrently use the additional medication or supplements. It is important not to compromise the control achieved for conditions of people on long term medication. Similarly, people with pre-existing conditions should inform their healthcare practitioner of any additional medication or supplements i.e. currently being taken or starting new, so as not to aggravate pre-existing conditions.
