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

ECHINAMIDE is the only echinacea extract clinically proven to increase immune response. When taken at the first sign of symptoms, Natural Factors ECHINAMIDE Anti-Cold Clinical Strength Fresh Herb Extract can help stop a cold from developing, ease symptoms, and accelerate healing, and taken daily, it provides preventative immune support.

Backed by more than a decade of research, ECHINAMIDE has been clinically proven as an effective treatment for upper respiratory tract infections in multiple randomized, double blind, placebo controlled trials. ECHINAMIDE uses a patented extraction method to guarantee consistent levels of the three known plant actives in Echinacea purpurea: alkylamides, cichoric acid, and polysaccharides. These compounds are the foundation of ECHINAMIDE’s powerful ability to reduce the length and severity of viral infections, and the whole herb base ensures no minor actives are missing from the formula. 

While many supplements use only the purple flowers of this herb, ECHINAMIDE uses both flowers and the highly potent roots. Natural Factors’ echinacea is grown to the highest organic standards on our own certified organic farm in British Columbia, and harvested when active ingredients are at their peak concentration. Each batch is rigourously tested to ensure purity and potency.
