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

Supplementation with antioxidants such as vitamins C and E has been growing rapidly in the past few years as research on harmful free radicals intensifies. AntiOxidant Formula offers a synergistic, broad spectrum of antioxidants designed to protect against free radical damage in every cell of the body. This formula offers a range of antioxidant nutrients to promote cellular health as well as support and enhance the body’s natural defense mechanisms against free radicals: the enzymes superoxide dismutase, catalase, and glutathione peroxidase. Recent research points to the fact that a synergistic combination of antioxidants is more effective than the total effect of each antioxidant taken alone. Milk thistle extract is derived from Silybum marianum fruit and standardized to contain 80% silymarin. Mixed carotenoids containing beta carotene, alpha carotene, zeaxanthin, cryptoxanthin and lutein are derived from D. salina (algae). Natural vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol succinate) is derived from soy. Riboflavin (B2) is derived from corn fermentation. N-acetyl-l-cysteine (NAC) is synthetically derived. Selenium and zinc are derived from limestone. Ascorbyl palmitate is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil.
