Be on the lookout for the Authentic UK / Canada Seals on our products sourced directly from the UK / Canada
When you order a product from us that comes from the United Kingdom, you can be sure you will be getting authentic government approved UK product and not a product from elsewhere in Europe. Many other pharmacies will say that the product is from the United Kingdom but in actual fact it is what is called a parallel imported product (so it may come from anywhere in Europe).
With parallel imported products, you have no idea where it may be coming from (Portugal, Spain, Germany, etc.) and with such a model, there is much more opportunity for counterfeit drugs to enter the drug distribution network.
So rest assured, knowing that the products we offer are not parallel imported products, but true authentic products sourced from the United Kingdom and Canada.
