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

alpha-Lipoic acid (ALA) is an organic compound present in cells throughout the body. It acts as a coenzyme within the mitochondria of cells for energy production; however, its action as a powerful antioxidant throughout the body elevates the status of this critical compound for the maintenance of general health. Its universal action is due to the fact it’s both water‑ and fat-soluble, unlike vitamins C and E, which are uniquely active in the water‑ or fat-based regions of cells, respectively. ALA also serves a pivotal role within the body’s antioxidant network, as it regenerates and extends the lifespan of other antioxidants including glutathione, coenzyme Q10, and vitamins C and E.
