  • Al's Formula was created by Thorne Research to be a comprehensive vitamin and mineral supplement for men over 40. It is one of the few vitamin and mineral supplements on the market that was designed specifically to meet the nutritional needs of the mature male. As such‚ it includes additional nutrients and botanicals to help support heart and prostate health.

    As you have come to expect from Thorne Research‚ Al’s Formula (Basic Nutrients for Men over 40) does not contain any hidden preservatives or pre-diluted ingredients. Al’s Formula also does not contain any magnesium stearate or stearic acid‚ which have been known to inhibit absorption of certain vitamins and minerals. It does‚ however‚ provide the active forms of folic acid (L-5-methyl-tetrahydrofolota and folinic acid) in a balanced 1:1 ratio.

    The Thorne Research Difference

    If you look at any manufacturer’s product line‚ you’ll find a multiple vitamin and mineral supplement at its cornerstone. The researchers at Thorne Research believe that this is where each individual should start their supplementation regimen. One should not look to supplement with additional vitamins and minerals if their basic needs are not being met. As with all of their products‚ Thorne Research only uses the purest and most bioavailable raw materials to produce Al’s Formula (Basic Nutrients for Men over 40). This supplement will never include unnecessary additives or preservatives‚ so every persons outcome will be optimized.

    Why a Good Multiple Vitamin and Mineral Supplement is Essential

    There are many things that nutritional experts disagree on; however‚ most can agree that the average American does not get enough of the right balance of vitamins and minerals from their diet. This is because so few Americans actually eat the five daily servings of healthful fruits and vegetables that are recommended. That is exactly why supplementation with a good multiple vitamin and mineral formulation is essential.

    The Journal of the American Medical Association is somewhat known for lack of support of dietary supplements; but even this organization has finally agreed that everyone should be taking a multiple vitamin and mineral supplement. One may think of it as “dietary insurance” that can take hold in the event that they don’t get enough of one vitamin or mineral from their daily food intake. If they do get enough nutrition from food‚ even greater health benefits can be realized by taking a multi.

    Al’s Formula was designed by Thorne Research to be a complete and comprehensive multiple vitamin and mineral formula. It was designed specifically to support the metabolic functions of a mature mane. This basic multiple vitamin and mineral formulation contains saw palmetto extract‚ additional zinc‚ and the amino acids‚ glycine‚ glutamic acid and alanine to help support the nutritional needs of the prostate.

    Al’s Formula also contains pure betaine and hawthorne extract to help support cardiovascular function. It does not contain iron because iron is not only unnecessary for most men‚ but it could also be harmful.

    Just like you’ve come to expect from Thorne Research’s multiple vitamin and mineral supplements‚ Al’s formula contains the active forms of vitamins B2‚ B6‚ B12 and folic acid.

    Al's Formula for Mark

    Our family has been using Thorne Research supplements for over 23 years. My MD recommended them to us while I was pregnant with our second child. A few years later, while my husband was teaching fulltime and upgrading an 84 unit apartment complex, he saw an ND/ARNP for excessive stress. That doctor also recommended Thorne products and started him on AL's Formula as part of his new regimen. 18 years later, Mark sold the apartments, has his stress under control, and continues to use AL's Formula as a basic supplement that he trusts.


    Pros

      AL's Formula is designed for men and their needs. It is a quality basis for any man's health care.

    Cons

      It is not inexpensive but worth it.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Great supplement!

    AL's Formula by Thorne Research is a great supplement for men who feel a little sluggish with their regular multivitamin. I have more energy now than I have in years.

    Excellent choice for multiple vitamin.

    I have been using AL's Formula by Thorne Research for the past 5 years--it had originally been recommended to me by a chiropractor who uses kinesiology. Taking AL's Formula has precluded the use of many other supplements as it supplies what is needed for my body and my diet. I couldn't recommend it highly enough.


    Pros

      Easy to remember to take each day and easily digested.

    Cons

      Nothing so far.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    I Dont Know Al

    I dont know Al but I do know Jack. Al's Formula by Thorne Research is what my naturopathic doctor ordered (suggested) as a broad spectrum male supplement. I have been taking Als Formula for several years as part of my stay-healthy stay-young routine. It must be working. I just underwent a full health assessment and scored in the top 2% for my age group (65 plus male).

    Great product!

    I looked at a lot of different vitamins for my family. Thorne had everything that I was looking for. Saving us money not having to fill in the gaps with other ingredients or supplements. My husbands energy level increased in the first week of using AL's Formula by Thorne Research.

    Greatest vitamin supplement for men

    I have given AL's Formula by Thorne Research to my father 80+ and my partner 52. They both felt great after 1 month taking this. PureFormulas has the best prices. Normal store price is $48.00
