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

Agaricus blazei has long been used as a folk remedy in Brazil, where it was originally discovered. Although currently popular in China, Korea and Japan, Agaricus blazei has no history of use in Traditional East Asian Medicine. The in-vitro research and animal studies have both shown significant immune supporting properties.

As with the other medicinal mushrooms, the primary active compounds in Agaricus blazei, the polysaccharides, are internal structural components of the indigestible cell walls. Extraction with a heated aqueous solution is required to release these active compounds into a bio-available form.

Our product is a hot water/alcohol extract, ensuring the presence of both the water and alcohol soluble fractions of the polysaccharides. Our 45% polysaccharide extract is the most potent extract available and is the only hot water extracted form of Agaricus blazei now being sold in North America.

Medicinal Ingredient: Hot water/alcohol mushroom extract 45% polysaccharide extract - 400 mg

Cautions

Agaricus blazei polysaccharides are considered to be safe and nontoxic. However, immuno-modulating substances should be used with extreme care or avoided completely in organ-transplant patients utilizing immuno-suppressive agents.
