Sainsbury's in Everard Close offers St Albans residents free cholesterol tests
A supermarket in St Albans has teamed up with a spread company to offer free cholesterol tests.
From September 4, Sainsbury's Supermarket in Everard Close will offer the 400 cholesterol tests to its customers, supported by Flora.
Tests will give customers their levels of good and bad cholesterol and also their sugar levels.
Adam Hassan, Pharmacy Manager, said: "It is really important for us to conduct these tests as cholesterol can creep up without us knowing.
"Sainsbury's is a great place for this as cholesterol can be significantly reduced through healthier shopping decisions".
Tests will last for five to 10 minutes and only require a few drops of blood. Customers must be over 18-years-old.
Bookings are advised due to the expected high demand which can be arranged by calling 01727 845905 or by popping in store.
