The keystone of every nutritional product line is a multiple vitamin-mineral supplement. At Thorne, we believe this is the starting point for every individual’s supplementation needs and that these products should contain all the essential nutrients. We also believe that by using the purest, most bioavailable raw materials those without unnecessary additives and preservatives every individual’s outcome will be optimized.
Nutrition experts agree that, due to the state of the current food supply and because few Americans eat the recommended five servings daily of health-giving fruits and vegetables, a multiple vitamin-mineral formulation should be taken daily.* Even the Journal of the American Medical Association, not known as a supporter of dietary supplements, has finally agreed that everyone should take a multi. A multi could be considered “dietary insurance,” a small price to pay to be sure you get all the essential nutrients daily, even if you don’t eat right. Even greater health benefits can be realized if you eat a healthy diet in addition to taking a multi.
This formula was one of the first two comprehensive multi-vitamin-mineral products offered by Thorne Research providing calcium, magnesium, and potassium as aspartate mineral chelates for optimized energy production* along with a complete range of trace minerals, but contains no copper or iron.
There are individuals who do not need iron, including women who are no longer menstruating and most men. Individuals at low risk for an iron deficiency often do not need supplemental iron unless they have a chronic condition that renders them iron deficient. While copper is an essential cofactor for many enzymes in the body, some individuals have developed copper toxicity due to disease processes or external exposure to copper (for example, copper pipes). Iron and copper can both act as pro-oxidants (working the opposite way from antioxidants) in certain situations, so many individuals prefer having the option of a multiple-mineral formula that does not contain these two minerals.
It also contains a full scope of highly absorbed vitamin co-factors.
