Why Thorne Nutritional Supplements?

Do You Care What You Put into Your Body? We Do!

For the last 10 years Dr. Z has been using Thorne products nearly exclusively to assist his clients successfully with a wide variety of chronic health problems. Here is why:



Fillers and Preservatives
You would be amazed if you found out what manufacturers can legally put into supplements in terms of additives, fillers, and binders without having to list these items on the label. Most all of them utilize raw materials containing

  • lactose, sodium benzoate, BHA, BHT, hydrogenated oils

as fillers and preservatives. These ingredients often cause allergic reactions, and many are harmful to the person ingesting them.

Lubricants and Flowing Agents
These same companies utilize lubricants and flowing agents such as

  • stearic acid, magnesium stearate, ascorbyl palmitate

Magnesium stearate appears by far the most popular one. Read the labels! They add absolutely no value to the supplement content. Their only purpose is to make the manufacturing process easier because they keep ingredients from sticking to the machinery. These lubricants are saturated fats. They tend to engulf the active ingredients which interferes with their absorption. It is like throwing a good portion of your supplements into the toilet.

Binders, Glues and Coloring Agents
Whenever you use supplements in tablet form, beware!

  • All tablets contain binders and glues to keep their shape.
  • Many tablets contain artificial coloring agents to make them look "prettier". Titanium Oxide as a "whitening agent" is just one example.

Again, these additives often cause allergic reactions, and many are detrimental to your health.

Why Thorne Supplements?
From its inception 15 years ago Thorne has been dedicated to create "truly hypo-allergenic" products that are designed for the most sensitive patient. We have concluded that Thorne has some of the cleanest and purest products on the market.

  • This remarkable company does NOT utilize any of the above additives, flowing agents, or fillers.
  • All products come either in liquid, powder or capsule form. This eliminates the need for binders and glues.
  • Thorne supplements may appear more expensive than similar items purchased in a store or from a catalogue.

Think again! What you don't know may harm you.
