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.

Suggested Use

Providing 1,000 mcg of folate per day, this product helps to promote folate intake without masking possible vitamin B12 deficiencies and promote healthy homocysteine levels. Folate is primarily involved in DNA synthesis and methylation reactions, such as the conversion of homocysteine to methionine. Studies have shown that dietary intake is less effective than supplementation to raise folate status. This product contains Metafolin, a proprietary and bioavailable form of folate found naturally in food and will not mask a vitamin B12 deficiency.
