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

Information

  • Plant and animal sourced enzymes to improve and enhance digestion.
  • Improves nutrient absorption.
  • Helps reduce inflammation.

AOR Zymes contains proteases to digest proteins, alpha amylase to digest starches, lipase to digest fats and alpha galactosidase for hard-to-digest polysaccharides found in legumes and vegetables that can cause gas and bloating. They are porcine pancreatic enzymes, meaning they are derived from pigs. Pancreatic enzymes from a mammalian source tend to be more effective than plant-based enzymes since they are similar to the enzymes naturally present in the human body.

Enzyme supplementation promotes the health of the digestive organs by facilitating digestion itself. It increases the efficiency of the digestive process by alleviating some of the burden from the digestive organs and improving nutrient absorption. Since the body cannot access nutrients in undigested food, the more food particles can be broken down, the more nutrients are made accessible to the body for absorption. In addition, poor breakdown of food particles is thought to contribute to allergies and various digestive diseases.
