Most B vitamins, with the exception of vitamin B12, are not stored in the body; consequently, they must be acquired daily from the diet in order to maintain optimal health.
Because of the state of the current food supply and the difficulty of consuming five servings of vegetables and fruits every day, few of us get all the nutrition that we need from food.
Per serving, Basic Nutrients 2/Day features 2,000 IU of vitamin D3 and 400 mcg of vitamin K (in K1 and K2 forms), plus mixed tocopherols, bioactive B vitamins, and amino acid-chelated minerals. Support for taking a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement (“multi”) is widespread. According to a 2013 survey of 12,000 individuals published in JAMA Internal Medicine, 32 percent of U.S. adults take a multi. The leading reason given was to improve overall health. *Groups who have a particularly increased risk for nutrient deficiency and who might certainly benefit from a multi include teenagers, athletes, the elderly, individuals on a restrictive diet, those who have a chronic disease, and individuals taking medications that cause nutrient deficiencies as a side effect.
Pregnancy is a critical time for optimizing a woman’s health and nutrition, important for both for the mother and her baby. Basic Prenatal is designed to be gentle and effective for women who are trying to conceive, pregnant, or lactating. Supplementation with folic acid reduces the risk of having a child with a brain or spinal cord birth defect.
Thorne’s Basic Prenatal provides the active forms of folate (5-MTHF) and vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) for optimal tissue-ready use.* Basic Prenatal also contains well-absorbed iron bisglycinate, which meets a pregnant woman’s increased need for iron while being easy on the stomach and non-constipating.* Several of Basic Prenatal’s ingredients (including vitamin C, vitamin B6, and vitamin K) have been demonstrated to benefit “morning sickness.”* Basic Prenatal is manufactured with the purest possible ingredients and without the additives and coatings usually found in mainstream prenatal supplements.
Supplementation with glucosamine and chondroitin sulfates can provide significant benefit for musculoskeletal support. Chondroitin sulfates, a category of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), are required for the formation of important components of joint cartilage.* These two nutrients support joint function by enhancing the body’s production of GAGs and preventing their degradation.* Evidence suggests supplementation with chondroitin sulfates supports joint structures.*
The combination of glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate may protect and support joint surfaces more effectively than glucosamine sulfate alone.* Thorne Research’s combination product – Glucosamine & Chondroitin – is offered as an option for individuals wishing to use a combination product to support joint integrity.*
Glucosamine & Chondroitin is NSF Certified for Sport®.
Endocannabinoids are cannabinoids made by the body. Phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids made by plants. Hemp Oil + is a synergistic blend of phytocannabinoids (and other active ingredients) from hemp stalk oil, clove, black pepper, hops, and rosemary. Blended in a base of nutritionally-rich hemp seed oil, these ingredients nourish the body’s endocannabinoid system – or ECS. The ECS is the body’s primary regulatory system. It’s like an internal balancing mechanism, constantly keeping multiple body functions in a state of equilibrium. The body produces its own cannabinoids – endocannabinoids – that modulate these biological processes throughout the entire body. As such, endocannabinoids have a wide-ranging effect on everything from fertility to pain.
Thorne’s Hemp Oil + formula contains phytocannabinoids, which exert the exact same activity in the body as endocannabinoids do. The formula is unique because it’s sourced from Europe, where it is rigorously tested to ensure it contains only minimally detectable amounts of the phytocannabinoid THC – an active ingredient in Cannabis – which ensures it has no psychoactive properties. U.S. hemp oil extracts are not always tested for THC content. The hemp oil in Hemp Oil + is European certified organic, eco-farm certified, is non-GMO, and is CO2 extracted (so no solvents are used).
Theracurmin is a novel preparation of turmeric that utilizes patented, colloidal dispersion technology to enhance bioavailability and dramatically increase curcumin levels in the blood. Unlike other forms of curcumin, Theracurmin is water-dispersible, meaning it dissolves quickly and maintains solubility over time, thereby improving curcumin’s overall absorption.
Standard curcumin is poorly absorbed even at high doses. Human trials show that Theracurmin is over 27 times more bioavailable than standard curcumin extracts. This high absorbability suggests Theracurmin supplementation can maximize curcumin’s biological effects in the body.
