Supplement Facts - Not all vitamins are created equal

I use only the best vitamins on my patients and on – Let me show you why

You care about what you put in your body. You can take any quality vitamin out there, so why not take the best?

Hypoallergenic, defined: Non-allergy producing. A term applied to a preparation in which every possible care has been taken in formulation and production to ensure minimum instances of allergic reactions. (Blakiston's Medical Dictionary)

It is often said that the United States is in the midst of a health-care crisis. You may eat right and exercise, but if you're like most Americans, your lifestyle leaves a lot to be desired.

Fortunately, dietary supplementation can fill some of those gaps. But the sheer number of dietary supplements available can be overwhelming. You may wonder, "Where do I begin?"
Your journey toward optimum health starts by partnering with your trusted health-care practitioner.

Health-care practitioners like yours trust and rely on Thorne Research for superior ingredients, innovative formulations, and hypoallergenic products. They know that Thorne's commitment to quality is unparalleled and that commitment has been the driving force for Thorne Research for 25 years.

None of Thorne Research's more than 280 nutritional supplements contain potentially allergenic fillers, binders, or lubricants. Even the most sensitive allergy patient can use Thorne Research products. With our pure, effective supplements, we can help you live well, naturally.

Why Thorne? Reason #1: Pure Ingredients

Thorne uses the purest ingredients available. A lot of companies make the same statement, but compare the two labels on this page. They appear to be identical. But what you don't see are the potentially allergenic ingredients used by other companies. Companies are not required to list these ingredients if they aren't added at the time the product is manufactured.

Why Thorne?

Reason #2: No Impure Additives

Compare the labels on this page. Here you see the IMPURE ingredients used by other companies. Companies are required to list these additives because they are added at the time the product is manufactured. Thorne is the ONLY company to use pure, hypoallergenic ingredients – from raw materials to the finished product. For 25 years, we have NEVER used the common, inexpensive, potentially harmful additives often used by other companies. We never have, and we never will.

That's why features Thorne.

Why Thorne? Reason #3: Absorption

Thorne products contain no lubricants made of ingredients that can prevent you from absorbing the active nutrients. Lubricants enable tableting and capsuling machines to run more efficiently, but these large fat molecules can prevent the product from dissolving in your digestive tract. Good for the machine – not necessarily good for you. You may not absorb the product or receive its benefits. Large fatty acid additives in this category include stearic acid and its cousins, magnesium stearate and calcium stearate. These lubricants have similar negative properties – reduced dissolution and inhibited absorption.
Learn to look on a supplement's product label for the presence of stearic acid or magnesium stearate.
