Basic Nutrients III‚ by Thorne Research is a truly comprehensive multivitamin that does not contain iron or copper. What it does contain are the basic nutrients that are essential for the body to function at peak performance. The folks at Thorne believe that such a basic‚ yet comprehensive supplement should be the starting point for everyone’s supplementation needs.

About Basic Nutrients III

This multi-vitamin and mineral combination provides calcium‚ magnesium and potassium (as citrate mineral chelates). Aside from providing these minerals in well-absorbed chelates‚ the added citric acid also has its own health benefits. It is involved in the Krebs cycle‚ which is also called the citric acid cycle and is crucial for energy production‚ and is essential for metabolism. Citric acid has also been known to inhibit calcium oxalate and phosphate from ending up in the urine‚ keeping more of these essential minerals in your body.

Basic Nutrients III includes all of the essential trace minerals with the exception of copper and iron. This is because not everyone needs to supplement with iron and copper and‚ for those individuals‚ excess exposure can be dangerous. Women who have undergone menopause and most men are not encouraged to take iron supplements without approval from their doctor. Also‚ most other people do not need to supplement with iron unless they have a specific condition that causes anemia. Copper is certainly an essential cofactor for many bodily enzymes‚ but some people have to be careful about their intake due to overexposure. Copper toxicity can be caused by certain diseases or from external exposure to copper (in copper pipes‚ for example). In some instances‚ both iron and copper can act as pro-oxidants (the exact opposite of antioxidants)‚ so it is safer for the general population not to supplement with either unless they have been instructed to do so by their doctor.

The Thorne Research Difference

This multivitamin by Thorne Research provides the active and usable forms of vitamins B2 and B6. It also features trace minerals and Thorne’s own patented form of chromium‚ known as UltraChrome.

You’ll find that this Basic Nutrients product is free of hidden preservatives and pre-diluted ingredients. It provides active folic acid (in the form of folinic acid and L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate in a balanced ratio) and does not contain the absorption-inhibiting magnesium stearate or stearic acid ingredients.

As you can expect from Thorne Research‚ for this product‚ they use only the purest‚ most bio-available ingredients without unnecessary preservatives and additives.

Why Is a Good Multi-Vitamin and Mineral Supplement Important?

There are many schools of thought when it comes to nutrition‚ but there is one thing that just about everyone agrees on – few Americans get the proper vitamins and minerals from their diet. In order to do so‚ each person would need to eat five daily servings of fruits and vegetables. Recently‚ the Journal of the American Medical Association‚ who historically has not supported supplementation‚ has agreed that everyone should be taking a multivitamin. Even if you think you might be getting enough nutrition from food‚ you can think of a good multivitamin and mineral as dietary insurance – a backup‚ just in case you are lacking in one essential nutrient or another.

Quality product

I have used Thorne Basic Nutrients III w/o copper & iron for over 7 years. Just had a red blood cell test performed by SpectraCell to see how my nutrient levels were and the results were all high levels! This is thanks to this and other supplements doing their job. Thorne holds high regard in the holistic/alternative/functional medicine community. This supplement was suggested by my Naturopath.

makes a difference
May 22, 2013
I have genital herpes. For the last 20 years, every time I don't take at least 2 Basic Nutrients III vitamins a day, within 3 days, I develop an outbreak. It has been 100% of the time. So I make sure I don't run out and that I pack them for trips, etc. There must be something I lack nutritionally that Basic Nutrients III provide that prevents an outbreak. Tried one a day and other brands a few times and although it took longer had outbreaks. Digestion is easier with these than others I have tried. My Alt Med Doc, Dr. MacCallum visited the Thorne laboratory to ensure he was recommending the best vitamins for his patients. He was looking for quality control levels and good data. Glad he did.
Pros:
dependable results, good prices, easily digested, good vitamin, nutrient coverage.
Cons:
no dislikes.

I LOVE THORNE
March 22, 2013
Though I'm not very good about taking supplements twice a day -- and therefore take only HALF the suggested dose (3 caps a day as opposed to 6), I immediately feel more energy. There is something intangible about the Thorne name and products which speaks to me of 'authority,' 'expertise,' 'reputability' and 'integrity' which otherwise, I am not able to express in exact other words. I JUST FEEL GOOD ABOUT THEM.

High quality, but too many capsules.
February 24, 2013
Thorne Research makes very high quality products, but six capsules are a bit ridiculous. You only give some Vitamins at 100% per one capsule. That being said, Basic Nutrients III w/o Copper and Iron is still much better than 90% of the multivitamins in the market.
Pros:
High quality
Cons:
Too many capsules per serving.

On a recent trip to see my Naturopathic Doctor I brought my Basic Nutrients III for her take on them. She quickly gave them two thumbs up saying Thorne produces a very high quality product. This was great to hear considering I love the vitamins. I split the dose into 3 capsules twice a day and notice a drop in energy if I forget to take them. My search for vitamins is finally over!

Excellent formula for energy & overall health
April 30, 2011
A naturopathic doctor recommended Basic Nutrients III to me four years ago and I've been taking it ever since. I have more energy and feel good when I take this, even though I'm only taking four capsules a day instead of the six recommended on the bottle. It has lots of minerals we all need that aren't included in lots of other vitamin and mineral supplements.
Pros:
This particular formula, without iron, is ideal for women who've had hysterectomies and therefore no longer need the additional iron replacement.

Great Multi
April 14, 2011
My naturopath recommended these to me. I used to get nausea when taking a one a day or two a day multi, but I can spread these out and I don't get nausea anymore. Even when I've had to catch up and take 3 at a time (1/2 daily dose), I still felt better than I did previously with other multi's.
Pros:
Does not upset my stomach
Cons:
Wish it would come in a bigger bottle.

Basic Nutrients III capsules by Thorne Research
January 10, 2011
My doctor prescribed this product. After two weeks I could tell the difference, I was no longer exhausted. A couple of times I tried to stop taking the capsules and again the feeling of fatigue was coming back. I order my capsules from PureFormulas, they are priced well and with free shipping I cannot go wrong. I usually receive my products in two days, I placed several orders and I am never disappointed.
Pros:
It is extremely effective and does not upset my stomach.
Cons:
I would like to see it offered where one or two capsules are the daily dosage instead of six capsules per day.
