Medical disclaimer

This is a new version of the Beyond by Holland & Barrett app, which aims to provide general information about your overall wellness. It does not provide a medical diagnosis, and it is not meant to replace a consultation with your medical provider or GP. If you need access to urgent care at any point in time, do not use this app and please call 999.

If you are pregnant, have any pre-existing medical conditions or are under 18 years old, do not use this app for medical guidance but instead contact your medical provider or GP for medical advice.

We always aim to use the latest research and evidence, however as new studies emerge every day, some of the latest health and wellness updates may not be reflected in our experience.

This app is for UK residents only; if you are currently based outside the UK, please contact your local medical advisor.

Please proceed only if you understand and agree to the above.
