  • 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.

    Basic Nutrients III

    My doctor prescribed Basic Nutrients III by Thorne Research. 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.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Basic Nutrient Multi vitamins

    I have been using Basic Nutrients III by Thorne Research for years. My doctor also recommends them. I can tell when I don't take them for a while. I don't have as much energy.


    Pros

      Consistency.

    Cons

      I have to take a few capsules for a daily dose. I split them up.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Excellent formula for energy!

    A naturopathic doctor recommended Basic Nutrients III by Thorne Research 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 Im 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

      Basic Nutrients III without iron is ideal for women who've had hysterectomies and therefore no longer need the additional iron replacement.

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

      Have to take 6 a day.
