The brown algae (Laminaria japonica) contains essential vital properties including organic iodine, fucoxanthin alginates, fucoidan and laminarin.
Algae are organized into four classes: algae green, blue-green algae, red algae and brown algae. Fucus vesiculosus also known as ascophyllum nodosum and other brown algae have been credited interchangeably with the same properties, but this is an incorrect assumption. While many algae of all varieties can contain minute amounts of iodine and alginates, it is the naturally very concentrated fucoidan content that sets them apart. Even the most well-known nutritional supplements of kelp and seaweed are generally nothing more than variations of dry and ground algae with a high price! Always think in terms of bioavailability.
Laminaria is not just another formulation of dried ground algae. It is actually a very concentrated extract of fucoidan and iodine which is one of the most sought after brown algae. Did you know that Laminaria Japonica has the capacity to concentrate 100,000 times more iodine than seawater?
However, we tend to lack iodine. Rare in soils, the latter is mainly present in marine environments. Our main source is salt, enriched with iodine by industry. Now, remember, iodine is an essential nutrient in our body: it allows good growth, the maintenance of our mental functions and the synthesis of thyroid hormones, responsible for a wide spectrum of activities within our organism. Deficiencies could have serious repercussions on the functioning of our body: developmental delay (if deficiency in children or pregnant women), thyroid dysfunction, goiter, mental and cognitive disorders, etc.

All deliveries to Canada are made by Canada Post, Purolator or UPS. Depending on the service chosen, you will receive a tracking number by email and / or SMS allowing you to track your package. Note that in winter, no shipment is made on Fridays, this to avoid freezing of liquids in carriers' warehouses during weekends.
Shipping time vs delivery time
The shipping period begins at the time of validation of your order and corresponds to a period of processing and preparation of your products. The delivery time varies from 3 to 24 working hours, depending on whether we have your products in warehouse or not. Items (100% present in warehouse) are dispatched the same working day for all orders placed before 12:00 EST.
The delivery period runs from the delivery of your package to the service provider in charge of delivery. It corresponds to the time required for the delivery person to send your package to the delivery address indicated when placing your order. Please note that the delivery companies make daily pickups before noon only.
In summary: [shipping time + carrier delivery time] = your estimated delivery date.
Please note that delivery companies do not guarantee delivery times. The days indicated in the choices are only for estimates only.
Delivery costs (province of Quebec)*
Quebec residents will have the choice between different choices of service, each with specific delivery times (not guaranteed). In addition, fixed delivery cost options of $ 5.00 (net purchase of more than $100 before taxes) and free (net purchase of $ 250 or more before taxes) are all offered to you with a delivery time of 3 to 14 working days and via the carrier of our choice.
* Remote areas excluded. Read below.
Shipping costs Canada (outside Quebec)
Delivery costs across Canada (outside Quebec) are calculated based on the volumetric weight of the order, your location and your choice of service and normally include a period of 3 to 14 working days. Note that the prices displayed are calculated directly by the carriers and not by the Vitacru Clinic. Note that in winter, we only offer fast shipping services on our shipments to avoid freezing of the products.
Delivery to a unit number or any unit that is not a detach house
Vitacru reserves the right to change the delivery method chosen by the customer in the case of a delivery made to a home that is not a detached private home. In this case and if we deem it necessary, a delivery by Canada Post with signature could be chosen as a replacement in order to ensure the proper delivery of the package and to avoid any unnecessary delay.
Unfortunately we have to exclude certain zones or postal codes from our shipping service at reduced or even free rates for certain Quebec postal codes located in remote regions. If your shipping address is in one of these areas, region or postal code, be sure to choose a shipping method other than our "Free Shipping" and / or "Reduced Rate" otherwise we will have to cancel and refund your order. Here are the region and / or postal code impacted by this rule:
You will always have the choice of your carrier and this regardless of your level of purchase. In order to avoid any delay in delivery, we recommend that you choose a carrier that is not on strike or threatens to be on strike. We will always respect your choice of carrier. Note that all carriers no longer guarantee a delivery time when another carrier declares a strike.
High traffic period or Crisis (holidays, ice, virus, etc.)
Please note that neither we nor the carriers can guarantee delivery times during periods of high volume of packages and/or during any crisis. For example, from November 20 to December 31 of each year, no carrier can meet its delivery times. A delay which normally takes 2 or 3 days can take 5 times longer, or more than 15 working days in this period. Thank you for your understanding.
Validity of your delivery address
We make the delivery to the address that you will have indicated during your order. You are therefore responsible for ensuring the validity of this.
If ever it turns out that either an error, a refusal to receive from the tenant or a lack of information (ie: suite no., Company name, etc.) existed in the address you would have indicated and Canada Post cannot proceed to delivery to the latter or that the package has been delivered but since information was missing, the package could not be assigned to you by reception, then Canada Post will proceed (s' when applicable) upon return of the package in question to our distribution center and we will collect the return shipping costs (equivalent to those we paid initially).
From then on, we will simply reimburse your entire order minus 2x the delivery costs that we have paid (not to be confused with your amount of delivery costs paid) thus canceling your order. If you ever wish to recommend this same order later, we advise you to correct and validate the address and / or make sure that the people living with you at this address accept delivery beforehand in order to avoid the same concerns for a second. time.
Note that if Canada Post ever delivered your package but it could not be delivered to you by the reception of the company (or other) due to the fact that it lacked information allowing the package to be sent to you , note that we can in no way be held responsible for this state of affairs and that you will have to take steps to recover your package with the department / reception of the company having received your package for you.
No-signature clause in case of absence
LOST OR STOLEN PACKAGE FOLLOWING DELIVERY BY CARRIER.
Please note that if you have opted for the no-signature clause in case of absence and a carrier leaves your package in the lobby or in front of your door and your package disappears before your arrival, it will be your own responsibility to contact your insurance company in order to request reimbursement if this was your wish. Vitacru inc. disclaims all liability in these cases. If you don't want any risk, be sure to add the "signature required" option to your order. By placing an order on our online store (manually or by phone), you acknowledge that you fully agree with this policy and agree to comply with it.
