How to cope with inventory shortages

The numerous inventory shortages caused by the pandemic have become a frustrating reality for both merchants and consumers. Unfortunately, it looks like they will be a part of our daily lives for a while. Here are some tips that we hope will help you get through the turmoil:

  1. Order early. Don't wait to finish a product if you want to keep taking it.
  2. Order two or three units of a product if you plan to take it for a long time. It may not be available the next time you need it.
  3. Ask your health care professional to suggest one or two alternatives for each product he/she recommends you take.
  4. Because of their higher quality standards, some brands have more difficulty sourcing their raw materials than others. Here are a few brands that currently have a very low backorder rate (less than 5%) or return times: Ortho Molecular Products, New Roots Herbal, Metagenics, AOR, Alterra, HerbalGem, Pranarom, Viazen. Reduce the risk of disappointment by choosing these brands.

Product Details

Two open trials and a double blind comparative investigation indicate that 5-HTP provides promising support for emotional well-being and additional studies indicate similar potential for support. It has also been shown to help moderate appetite and food cravings in study participants. In several other trials, including one that involved over 100 subjects, it has demonstrated the ability to promote healthy cranial vessel comfort and function. 5-HTP is derived from the Griffonia Simplicifolia and the hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose. 

Each vegetarian capsule contains:

  • 5-hydroxytryptophan (Griffonia simplicifolia) (100 mg)
