Heat Sensitive Products Policy:Heat sensitive products are shipped according to our above policy, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday with an ice pack and thermal bubble wrap during the warmer months. Although the ice pack will melt during shipping, the product will retain its integrity. Probiotics are manufactured with overages that ensure label potency when exposed to extreme temperatures. If an item is heat sensitive, it will be noted in the product name as "Heat Sensitive".
Packages with heat sensitive probiotics should be opened as soon as possible and placed in a dry environment at or below 71 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure ongoing product integrity. Please also note that heat sensitive products are non-returnable and non-refundable. If you have any questions regarding the sensitivity of these products please call Garden of Life at (866) 465-0051.
