Our Integrative Medical Advisory Team has curated similar products for the majority of items in our catalog to help avoid disruptions to your treatment plan when backorders occur unexpectedly. Similar products help to identify alternatives to the products you know and trust. These similar product suggestions are objectively selected based on ingredients, formulations, delivery form, and dose; we do not assume which health condition is being addressed and do not recommend alternative products based on clinical outcomes.
Shortages most often occur when there are unavoidable supply chain issues, including, but not limited to, trouble sourcing raw materials, disruptions to manufacturing practices, supplier-initiated recalls, and delivery-related disruptions. Similar products will share common ingredients, dosage instructions, and formats (i.e., capsules, tablets, etc.).
Note: We recommend contacting your practitioner if you have any questions about specific products and whether they're a good fit for you.

If products in your treatment plans (prescriptions or recommendations) are on backorder or out of stock, selecting View similar products will open a modal to suggest possible alternatives. Please get in touch with your practitioner if you're unsure whether a product is right for you.
