There are two different types of content on our site: editorial and user-generated. Our editorial content is written by health experts, edited, fact-checked and reviewed. Our user-generated content, for example group discussions and comments, is provided by users like you and is therefore not subject to review.
We want to help you to understand as much as possible about natural health. It’s our aim to provide you with high quality, objective and informed information that’s easy to understand and looks at the best of natural therapies, and health and wellbeing advice.
We encourage you to maximize your wellbeing, and the wellbeing of those around you, by focusing on the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of your life at all times.
You should always discuss information that you wish to act on from our site, or from anywhere else on the internet, with your healthcare professional.
Our editorial content
Our editorial content includes articles, video files, audio files, graphics, photographs, calculators, trackers and assessment tools that are published on this and other Blackmores websites at the direction of our Editorial and Content teams. We create or commission all editorial content on this website (unless stated otherwise).
Before Blackmores publishes any content, there is a number of staff who view, edit and approve the content for medical accuracy, safety, fairness and sourcing. This ensures our standards are consistent, all regulatory requirements are met and the information we communicate to you is accurate.
Given the ever-changing nature of medical research, content related to treatments and conditions is reviewed every two years according to these same standards. In some cases, where determined necessary by our medical staff, the content is reviewed more often for continued accuracy and relevance.
User-generated content refers to content submitted by users of our website. This includes posts, discussions and blog comments.
We encourage our users to share their experiences and points of view online, as this empowers our groups and builds a sense of community. Our User-generated content is personal, and as a result is not subject to a review process. We therefore urge you take care when evaluating this content. Please see our Posting Guidelines for more information.

These linked sites are not under the control of Blackmores, and we are not responsible for the conduct of companies linked to our site. Before disclosing your personal information on any other site, we advise you to examine the Terms and Conditions of those sites.
