5-HYDROXYTRYPTOPHAN - Product Image
5-HYDROXYTRYPTOPHAN

5-Hydroxytryptophan by Thorne Research is an intermediate metabolite in the pathway from tryptophan to serotonin. 5-hydroxytryptophan supplementation enhances serotonin levels. Serotonin is involved in the body's control of sleep, mood regulation, and appetite.

5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is the intermediate metabolite produced when the body initiates the process of converting the essential amino acid L-tryptophan to serotonin. Serotonin levels in the body are associated with the regulation of sleep, mood, aggression, appetite, temperature, sexual behavior, and pain sensation.*

Supplementing with 5-HTP to facilitate serotonin production is preferable to supplementing with L-tryptophan because, unlike L-tryptophan, 5-HTP cannot be shunted into niacin or protein production.* Supplementation with 5-HTP bypasses the conversion of L-tryptophan into 5-HTP by the enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase, the rate-limiting step in the synthesis of serotonin and a step that can be inhibited by a number of factors, including stress, insulin resistance, increasing age, and deficiencies of vitamin C, folate, and iron.

5-HTP is well absorbed when taken orally, with about 70 percent ending up in the bloodstream.*

Intestinal absorption of 5-HTP does not require the presence of a transport molecule and is not affected by the presence of other amino acids; therefore, it may be taken with meals without reducing its effectiveness.* 5-HTP easily crosses the blood-brain barrier and effectively increases central nervous system (CNS) synthesis of serotonin.*

5-HTP has been shown to have a beneficial impact on mood, discomfort associated with fatigue, sleep, and carbohydrate craving.* Numerous studies of individuals with negative mood status have shown significant positive response with 50-300 mg of 5-HTP daily.*

To further facilitate serotonin production, Thorne Research's 5-HTP formula contains pyridoxal 5'-phosphate, the active form of vitamin B6 and the necessary cofactor for the conversion of 5-HTP to serotonin.* 5-HTP is commercially produced by extraction from the seeds of the African plant, Griffonia simplicifolia.

5-MTHF 1mg (5-Methyltetrahydrofolate), 60s - Product Image
5-MTHF 1mg (5-Methyltetrahydrofolate), 60s

5-MTHF (5-METHYLTETRAHYDROFOLATE) by Thorne Research

5-MTHF is the most biologically active form of the B-vitamin folic acid. 5MTHF works in concert with vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) in the conversion of homocysteine to methionine, which provides methyl groups for numerous other biochemical reactions in the body. Because of this, folate supplementation supports cardiovascular health, nervous system function, normal cellular proliferation, and gingival health. Folate supplementation during pregnancy has been shown to reduce the risk of neural tube defects.

Research has shown a subset of individuals do not efficiently convert folic acid from the diet or supplements to active 5-MTHF, due to genetic enzyme deficiencies. Research suggests 5-MTHF is a more efficient form of supplementation than inactive folic acid in these and other individuals.

Dosage:1 - 3 capsules qd

Folate (as 5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate)1000 mcg

Product Information

Folic acid must be converted to its active forms to be used by the body.* This is a multi-step biochemical process that occurs in the intestines and liver. In the presence of intestinal or liver dysfunction this conversion may not occur sufficiently enough to meet the body's needs. Furthermore, up to one-third of the U.S. population may have a genetic enzyme defect that makes it difficult for them to convert folic acid (even folinic acid) into active 5-MTHF. For these individuals and many others, 5-MTHF supplementation may be a more effective method of folate repletion.*

Because deficiencies of folic acid have been linked to low-birth-weight infants and neural tube defects, folic acid requirements double during pregnancy.* The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends folic acid supplementation for all women of childbearing age because the biggest need is during the first trimester, when a woman may not even be aware she is pregnant.* Supplementation with the more active form may be preferable.*

In concert with vitamin B12, 5-MTHF functions as a methyl-group donor involved in the conversion of the amino acid homocysteine to methionine.* Methyl-group donation is vital to many biochemical conversion processes, including the synthesis of serotonin, melatonin, and DNA.*

It is important for women of childbearing age to get enough folic acid - not just those who are planning to become pregnant.* Only 50 percent of pregnancies are planned, so any woman who could become pregnant should get enough folic acid every day - especially before conception and during early pregnancy.*

A woman who is pregnant or nursing, or who might become pregnant, should consult a health-care practitioner before using this product.

Adrenal Cortex - Product Image
Adrenal Cortex

Thorne Research's Adrenal Cortex provides pure dried bovine adrenal cortex in capsule form.

Product Information

The adrenal cortex is responsible for producing a special group of hormones known as corticosteroids. These hormones are comprised of glucocorticoids, mineralocorticoids, and 17-ketosteroids, and are essential for key homeostatic processes throughout the body.* Glucocorticoids are necessary for glucose metabolism and immune response.* Mineralocorticoids help maintain healthy electrolyte balance and already normal blood pressure.* The 17-ketosteroids are associated with sex hormones produced by the adrenal glands.*

In today's world it seems as though everyone is functioning in "high-stress" mode. Dietary habits fraught with caffeine and refined sugars, and lifestyle habits that deprive us of adequate rest and exercise can, over time, take their toll on the adrenal glands. Adrenal cortex tissue extracts play a valuable role in supporting healthy adrenal glands - which helps maintain immune function and promotes a feeling of energy.* Glandulars also help support healthy cortisol levels.* Adrenal cortex provides adrenal cortex tissue for focused support and normal adrenal function.*

Ingredients

One Capsule Contains:
Adrenal Cortex (Bovine) 50 mg.
Other Ingredients: Magnesium Citrate, Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, Silicon Dioxide.

Suggested Use: Take 1 capsule one to three times daily, or as recommended by a health-care practitioner.
Dosage:1 to 2 capsules bid

60 Caps

WARNING: A woman who is pregnant, or who might become pregnant, should not supplement with Adrenal Cortex. Adrenal Cortex is specifically contraindicated during pregnancy.

Calcium-Magnesium Citramate, 240 Vegetarian Capsules - Product Image
Calcium-Magnesium Citramate, 240 Vegetarian Capsules

Calcium Magnesium Citramate by Thorne Research

calcium and magnesium as the superior citrate-malate chelates

  • A 1:1 ratio of calcium and magnesium
  • highly absorbable form of these minerals
  • made without flowing agents that can inhibit bioavailability
  • improved absorption in individuals with low stomach acid
  • Product Information

    Calcium and magnesium are the essentials: anthropological evidence indicates humans were high consumers of calcium until the onset of the Agricultural Age 10,000 years ago. Current calcium intake is one-quarter to one-third of our evolutionary diet, indicating we may not be consuming enough dietary calcium. Recent analysis of large numbers of previously conducted studies on calcium and bone mass demonstrate that supplementation of 500 to 1,500 mg of a well-absorbed form of calcium daily promotes bone mass in adolescents, young adults, older men, and postmenopausal women.*

    Magnesium is present in all cells of the body and is involved in over 300 enzymatic processes, including energy production.* Magnesium is essential for maintaining normal bone density, normal cardiac rhythmicity, normal pulmonary function, and normal blood glucose regulation.* Other body functions requiring magnesium include nerve conduction, methyl-group transfer, conversion of pyridoxine to pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B6), production of energy, and muscle contraction.* Magnesium supplementation appears to be a significant support to maintaining already normal bone density.*

    The appropriate intake ratio of calcium to magnesium is undecided, with some authors in the scientific literature supporting a 2:1 ratio (twice as much calcium than magnesium) and others recommending a 1:1 ratio. Thorne Research offers several formulas with varying ratios of calcium to magnesium to meet individual needs.

    Cal-Mag Citramate provides a 1:1 ratio of calcium and magnesium as the well-absorbed citrate-malate chelate.* Magnesium and calcium appear to work in tandem in the body, with both necessary for many functions, including maintaining normal blood pressure, muscle contraction, and menses.* In addition to calcium, magnesium is essential for helping maintain normal bone density.* Magnesium depletion impairs mineral homeostasis by reducing the activation of vitamin D.*

    Ingredients

    One Capsule Contains:

    Calcium (as Calcium Citrate-Malate) 80 mg.

    Magnesium (as Magnesium Citrate-Malate) 80 mg.

    Other Ingredients: Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule. May contain one or more of the following hypoallergenic ingredients to fill space – Leucine, Silicon Dioxide.

    Choleast - Product Image
    Choleast

    Choleast by Thone Research

    Red yeast rice extract with coenzyme Q10 for support of already normal cholesterol levels*

    • supports cardiovascular health by helping maintain already normal cholesterol levels*
    • contains naturally-occurring monacolins*
    • coQ10 enhances antioxidant activity*
    • made without preservatives, magnesium stearate, or other lubricants and diluents
    • Product Information

      Natural management of already normal cholesterol levels should involve dietary and lifestyle modifications, including a low-saturated fat, low-carbohydrate diet, and aerobic exercise. As additional supplementation, several nutrients and botanicals can be used to help maintain lipid metabolism and support the already normal cholesterol levels.*

      The cholesterol fraction that appears to be of most concern is LDL cholesterol, and, in particular, oxidized LDL. Antioxidant supplementation can be beneficial for decreasing the oxidation of LDL.*

      Choleast contains Monascus purpureus, a red-pigmented yeast grown on rice. Numerous studies in China and the United States have demonstrated that red yeast rice preparations are helpful in maintaining blood cholesterol levels already in the normal range.* This is important, as maintaining optimal cholesterol levels has been shown to be one component of maintaining cardiovascular health.*

      In addition to naturally occurring substances called monacolins, red yeast rice contains the phytosterols beta-sitosterol, campesterol, and stigmasterol, as well as isoflavones and trace minerals, all of which can contribute to cardiovascular health.*

      The same enzymes involved in cholesterol synthesis are also involved in the synthesis of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). Thus, to help maintain normal levels of CoQ10, Choleast contains 15 mg CoQ10 per capsule.*

      Red Yeast Rice, Monacolins, and Citrinin Content

      Red yeast rice is obtained by a specific process that ferments rice. One of the natural by-products of the rice fermentation process is citrinin, although usually the more sophisticated the fermentation process, the lower the amount of citrinin that is produced as a by-product. Citrinin is a mycotoxin. Because mycotoxins can cause inflammation and other injurious effects in the body, our practitioner-customers and their patients want the assurance that Thorne Research's red yeast rice product - Choleast(TM) - contains only minimal amounts of citrinin.

      In a study published in October 2010 in the Archives of Internal Medicine, 12 red yeast rice products were analyzed for the content of monacolins and citrinin. The results of the analyses demonstrated a high variability of the content of both these substances.

      Although Thorne Research's Choleast was not included in the above-noted study, we can confirm to our health-care practitioner customers that we take the utmost care to make certain we are offering the highest quality and purity red yeast rice formula. There are no government standards or guidelines for citrinin content in red yeast rice; however, the generally recognized standard in the industry is less than 1 part per million, and Thorne Research's Choleast regularly tests at less than 0.05 parts per million, which is less than 1/20th of that standard.

      In addition, Choleast contains consistent amounts of the naturally-occurring monacolins found in red yeast rice, without standardization or fortification. We know this because we measure all of our raw materials in order to be in compliance with our strict GMP obligations to determine each ingredient's identity, purity, strength, and composition.

      At Thorne Research we are committed to the quality of the formulas we offer to you and your patients. Thank you for your continued support.

    CystePlus (500 mg) - Product Image
    CystePlus (500 mg)

    Cysteplus

    N-acetylcysteine for liver support, detoxification, and immune support*

    • well recognized for its powerful detoxification capability in the liver*
    • strong antioxidant activity*
    • supports good pulmonary health by decreasing the thickness of mucus*
    • increases glutathione, a primary cellular antioxidant and detoxification factor*

    Product Information

    N-acetylcysteine (NAC), a sulfur-containing amino acid, is the precursor of the amino acids L-cysteine and glutathione. Animal and human studies of NAC show it to have powerful antioxidant activity.* In addition to antioxidant activity, NAC is effective in promoting normal liver detoxification.*

    As a sulfur source, NAC stimulates glutathione (an important antioxidant produced in the body) synthesis and activity, promotes liver detoxification, and is a powerful molecule capable of scavenging free radicals.*

    Research suggests NAC is capable of enhancing immunity.* In a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, NAC was shown to positively impact lymphocyte cell numbers.*

    NAC helps maintain good pulmonary health due to its mucolytic activity.* NAC's sulfur cleaves bonds in mucoproteins, causing mucus to be subsequently broken into smaller, less viscous pieces.* NAC has been noted to decrease the viscoelasticity of nasal mucus and increase the clearance of mucus by the cilia by thinning of secretions, thus helping maintain good pulmonary health.*

    Ingredients

    One Capsule Contains:
    N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine 500 mg.
    Other Ingredients: Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, Leucine, Silicon Dioxide.

    Suggested Use: Take 1 capsule two to three times daily or as recommended by a health-care practitioner.

    D-5,000 - Product Image
    D-5,000

    D-5,000

    for individuals desiring higher amounts of vitamin D supplementation

    • Thorne's Vitamin D is pure vitamin D - without hidden ingredients like lactose, BHT, BHA, sodium benzoate, and sorbic acid
    • capsules in two convenient amounts (D1000 and D5000)
    • made without flowing agents that can inhibit bioavailability
    • supports cardiovascular, immune, and bone health*

    Product Information

    It is essential to maintain healthy vitamin D levels throughout all stages of life, from fetal development to old age.* Vitamin D helps protect a number of important functions in the body.* The current recommended daily vitamin D intake of 400 IUs is based on the minimum allowance to protect against bone disease. However, an upward revision of the FDA's guideline is now under consideration in light of new research, especially pertaining to immune function. Cutting-edge research suggests serum vitamin D levels should be in the range of 32-80 ng/mL 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D). Although direct sunlight exposure is a good source of vitamin D, many people do not get enough sun due to season change, latitude, or lifestyle. Therefore, vitamin D supplementation can be of great benefit in these cases.*

    Vitamin D deficiency is quite common, particularly among the elderly.* For example, a study conducted at a hospital in Glasgow, Scotland, found an almost universal vitamin D deficiency among a group of 548 elderly patients. Individuals deficient in vitamin D may need 5,000-10,000 IU of vitamin D daily to replenish tissue stores.* With these individuals specifically in mind, Thorne's D-5,000 supplies 5,000 IU of pure vitamin D3 in each vegetarian capsule.

    Some vitamins, because of their potency, are usually given in very small amounts. Examples of such "micro-dose" vitamins include vitamin D, vitamin K, and vitamin B12. Most dietary supplement manufacturers purchase "micro-dose" vitamins from raw material suppliers as premixed dilutions, meaning the vitamins (in powder form) are mixed with other powdered substances that in turn make it easier for the manufacturer to handle and mix a larger quantity of raw material. Unfortunately, the powdered substances used in these premixed dilutions frequently contain potentially detrimental ingredients such as lactose and also the preservatives BHT, BHA, sodium benzoate, and sorbic acid.

    At Thorne Research, our promise is to give you the purest supplements humanly possible. Therefore, we do not purchase premixed dilutions of any "micro-dose" vitamins. Instead, we purchase pure, undiluted vitamins and create our own dilutions when it is necessary to do so, using pure, hypoallergenic powders, such as magnesium citrate or plant cellulose. The resultant premixture is then added to the dietary supplement being made, ensuring the proper amount of each pure nutrient is contained in each capsule.

    Deproloft-HF - Product Image
    Deproloft-HF

    Deproloft-HF by Thorn Research - a synergistic blend of botanicals and nutrient cofactors to enhance mood*

    • enhances mood*
    • a valuable addition to any stress management plan*
    • nutrients and botanicals for neurotransmitter support*
    • non-habit forming

    Product Information

    Deproloft-HF is a multi-faceted formula designed to safely enhance mood and cognition.* It combines several known mood-enhancing nutrients and botanicals, such as L-tyrosine and 5-HTP, with other key ingredients, including Rhodiola, Eleutherococcus, and PharmaGABA, to promote healthy neurotransmitter and adrenal function.*

    Deproloft-HF is "Hypericum free." Hypericum (St. John's wort) is a known inducer of cytochrome p450 3A4 (CYP3A4) and thus can reduce blood levels of medications that are metabolized via this enzyme. Because it does not contain Hypericum, Deproloft-HF is suitable for patients who are taking medications that are metabolized by CYP3A4.*

    Low serum and red blood cell concentrations of vitamin B12 and folate can have an adverse effect on mood.* Vitamin B12 supports healthy neurological function and red blood cell formation, two factors that can enhance overall mood and stress management.* Deproloft-HF contains 5-MTHF, the active form of folate.

    Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus) is a well-known adaptogen and is included in Deproloft-HF to provide general adrenal support.* Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA), an inhibitory neurotransmitter that balances excessive excitatory responses in the brain, is included to help allay stress and support a calm state of mind.* GABA is provided as the patented, all natural-source PharmaGABA. Deproloft-HF is safe and effective for mood enhancement and a valuable addition to any stress management plan.*

    Dipan-9, 60 Capsules - Product Image
    Dipan-9, 60 Capsules

    Dipan-9 by Thorne Research

    pancreatic enzymes (pancreatin) for digestive support*

    • provides lipase, protease, and amylase for digestion of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates*
    • benefits individuals with occasional indigestion*
    • pure undiluted pancreatin; lactose-free and the highest potency and purity possible

    Product Information

    Pancreatin is a mixture of several digestive enzymes produced by cells in the pancreas. Pancreatin is composed of amylase, lipase, and protease. Pancreatin production and secretion by the pancreas is essential to digestion and absorption of numerous nutrients, especially fats.*

    Indigestion affects millions of people every day. For some, eating fatty foods can bring on heartburn. For others, simple carbohydrates (like bread and pasta) may cause gas and bloating. And for other individuals, spicy foods can cause them grief. Although what we eat greatly influences the frequency and severity of indigestion, this discomfort could be related to an underlying problem – poor digestive enzyme activity.

    Situations such as illness, gall bladder removal, overuse of antacids, and aging can contribute to insufficient secretion of stomach acid, pancreatic enzymes, and bile, and can adversely affect digestive enzyme activity and lead to heartburn, gas, bloating, and other forms of gastrointestinal discomfort.*

    Equally important in taking the right digestive enzyme product is assuring the quality of the digestive enzymes you take. For example, lactose intolerance – due to a deficiency of the enzyme lactase – is a frequent reason for prescribing a digestive enzyme support product. Yet many of the digestive enzymes on the market (pancreatin, pepsin, papain, and bromelain) are actually diluted with hidden lactose! Why? Because lactose is used as a means of diluting the potency of a digestive enzyme to meet a given specification. The U.S. Pharmacopeia calls for pepsin and pancreatin to have a specified digestive power. Anything greater than the specified U.S. Pharmacopeia requirement is listed on the label as 2X, 3X, etc. – meaning the product has two or three times the specified digestive power. Pure, raw pancreatin typically has a 9X digestive power. In other words, 9X means the pancreatin is undiluted. Anything less than 9X is diluted, often with lactose. And both prescription and non-prescription digestive enzyme products might contain lactose. Thorne Research's digestive enzyme products are hypoallergenic and do not contain lactose – they never have.*

    Thorne's pure pancreatin is a lactose-free product and has the highest potency and purity possible. Thorne uses only pure, undiluted pancreatin.

    Ingredients

    Two Capsules Contain:
    Pancreatin (Porcine)* 1 g.

    Lipase 18,000 USP Units
    Other Ingredients: Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule.

    Formula SF722

    Formula SF722 by Thorne Research

    undecylenic acid - potent fatty acid support of healthy gut and vaginal flora*

    • Thorne's innovative approach for healthy gut flora*
    • six times more effective than caprylic acid
    • maintains healthy vaginal flora*
    • one of our best selling products for over 20 years

    Product Information

    Optimal gastrointestinal tract functioning is vital to the absorption of nutrients, elimination of waste, and proper immune function.* Many health-care practitioners consider gut function and especially good gut ecology - maintaining a healthy balance of gut flora, the microorganisms that normally live in the digestive tract - to be a key component to overall health.* Many situations can contribute to an imbalance in the microbial flora of the digestive tract, including an unhealthy diet, inadequate digestive enzymes, oral contraceptives, and the use of various prescription and OTC drugs. Increasing recognition is also being given in women's health to the relationship between gut flora and vaginal flora; i.e., a healthy balance of gut flora has corresponding benefit to the vaginal flora.*

    Fatty acids have been used for centuries to help maintain a healthy balance of the microorganisms that normally live in the gastrointestinal tract.* In the last 50 years, fatty acids have demonstrated effectiveness in supporting a healthy gut flora in a number of studies.*

    Undecylenic acid (10-undecenoic acid) is an eleven-carbon, mono-unsaturated fatty acid occurring naturally in the body's perspiration. While several fatty acids have beneficial effects on the flora that naturally inhabit the gastrointestinal tract, undecylenic acid is the most potent.*

    A Thorne Research innovation, Formula SF722 contains undecylenic acid in a base of pure, extra-virgin olive oil. Formula SF722 aids in the establishment of healthy gut and vaginal flora and has been one of Thorne Research's best-selling products for over two decades.*

    Indole-3-Carbinol, SF749 by Thorne Reserch

    To support estrogen metabolism

  • maintains optimal 2-hydroxy/16-hydroxy estrogen ratios*
  • found in cabbage family vegetables, it's a source of DIM
  • nutritional support for liver detoxification*
  • made without flowing agents that can inhibit bioavailability
  • Indole-3-carbinol (I3C) is a compound found in high concentrations in vegetables of the Brassica family, including broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage.

    As a dietary supplement, I3C provides key nutritional support for liver detoxification.* It also plays an important role in supporting female reproductive health.* The majority of ingested I3C is absorbed in the small intestine as diindolylmethane (DIM), which is thought to be the primary contributor to I3C's beneficial properties. DIM has been shown to selectively bind to estrogen receptors and may act as an estrogen antagonist at physiological concentration.*

    In the liver, I3C promotes the metabolism of estrogen and increases the ratio of 2-hydroxy estrogen to 16-hydroxy estrogen.* The 2-hydroxy estrogens, less active than the 16-hydroxy estrogens, generally are eliminated more rapidly from the body. One prospective study found postmenopausal women with the most favorable urinary 2:16-hydroxyestrone ratio were most likely to maintain good female health.*

    Preliminary studies have examined the efficacy, safety, and optimal supplementation of I3C. A 12-week phase I trial conducted on 17 women found a 66-percent increase in urinary 2:16-hydroxyestrone ratio with administration of 400 mg I3C daily.*

    Iodine & Tyrosine - Product Image
    Iodine & Tyrosine

    Iodine & Tyrosine, 60 Vegetarian Capsules

    Essential mineral and amino acid support for the thyroid gland*

    • key nutrients for thyroid support*
    • also promotes healthy adrenal function*
    • made without flowing agents that can inhibit bioavailability
    Product Information
    The thyroid hormones, thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), are produced by the thyroid gland. The major form of thyroid hormone in the blood is thyroxine (T4); in fact, there is generally 20 times more T4 in the blood than T3. The thyroid hormones are essential to the proper development and differentiation of all cells of the human body.* The thyroid hormones regulate the metabolism of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, affecting how humans use these compounds to produce energy.* Thyroid hormones have important functions in the body; for example, thyroxine supports cardiac output, heart rate, respiratory rate, and basal metabolic rate.*

    The thyroid gland cannot produce its hormones without the presence of the amino acid L-tyrosine and the mineral iodine.* Thus, a deficiency of either the amino acid or the mineral or both could contribute to low thyroid hormone levels.* Studies have found L-tyrosine may be beneficial for treating fatigue, a common symptom of low thyroid hormone levels.*

    Individuals should be aware that some foods can cause a relative iodine deficiency by binding to iodine, making it inaccessible for thyroid hormone production, although cooking these foods tends to make them less so. Such foods include broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kale, soy, peanuts, pine nuts, turnips, and rutabaga.

    Tyrosine is also an important cofactor for adrenal neurotransmitter synthesis, as it is converted In the adrenal glands into dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine.*

    Ingredients

    One Capsule Contains:
    Iodine (as Potassium Iodide) 225 mcg.

    • helps convert fat to energy*
    • supports already normal levels of cholesterol and triglycerides*
    • promotes healthy sperm count and sperm motility*
    • contains no preservatives, magnesium stearate, or other lubricants and diluents

    Product Information

    The amino acid L-carnitine is a cofactor required for the metabolism of fats and their subsequent transport into the mitochondria, where they undergo oxidation and produce energy.*

    Those prone to being deficient in L-carnitine and for whom supplementation might be advisable include individuals on dialysis and individuals who are HIV-positive.* Supplementation with L-carnitine appears to be of benefit in supporting general wellbeing, appetite control, cardiovascular health, carbohydrate metabolism, reproductive health, and muscle health.

    L-carnitine has also been shown to benefit athletic performance.* For example, studies have shown improvements in running speed, decreased average oxygen consumption, heart rate, and lactic acid, and increased maximal oxygen uptake.* Studies on high-repetition exercise found improved muscle recovery after L-carnitine supplementation.

    L-carnitine is probably best known for its cardiac benefits.* In the heart muscle, L-carnitine facilitates fatty acid use, and promotes rhythm, myocardial blood flow, and cardiac output.

    Carnitine also helps maintain blood lipid levels, with research showing support in maintaining already normal levels of total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, lipoprotein(a) (associated with LDL cholesterol), and triglycerides.

    Product Information

    L-lysine, an essential amino acid, cannot be synthesized in the body. Vegetarians can be deficient in lysine because, while meat, poultry, and milk are rich sources of lysine, proteins in grains and cereals are typically low in lysine. Of the many biological functions requiring lysine, some notable applications include synthesis of connective tissues such as bone, skin, collagen, and elastin; synthesis of carnitine and the resultant conversion of fatty acids to energy; support for healthy growth and development in children; and maintenance of a healthy immune function.*

    • amino acid essential for brain serotonin and melatonin production*
    • promotes relaxation, sleep, and good mood*
    • contains no preservatives, magnesium stearate, or other lubricants and diluents
    • made without flowing agents that can inhibit its bioavailability

    Product Information

    L-tryptophan is an amino acid essential to human metabolism because it is the metabolic precursor of serotonin (a neurotransmitter), melatonin (a neurohormone), and niacin (vitamin B3).* Other neurotransmitters and central nervous system chemicals, including dopamine, norepinephrine, and beta-endorphin, have been shown to increase following oral administration of tryptophan.* Because of its effects on serotonin and melatonin production in the brain, L-tryptophan supplementation can benefit mood and can also promote relaxation, a benefit for individuals attempting to get to sleep.*

    Supplementing with L-tryptophan allows the body to use it where it is needed most - for protein synthesis, niacin formation, or as a serotonin/melatonin precursor.* For optimal L-tryptophan absorption and transport across the blood-brain barrier, it is recommended to take L-tryptophan with a dietary carbohydrate.

    MediBolic - Product Image
    MediBolic

    MediBolic by Thorne Research

    The nutritional cornerstone of the Thorne Metabolic Syndrome Program

    • Helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels*
    • Supports normal lipid levels*
    • Increases satiety*
    • Supports insulin sensitivity*
    • Provides nutrient support for fatty liver*

    What is MediBolic?

    MediBolic is a pea and rice protein-based nutritional supplement that also includes a complete multiple vitamin-mineral complex, a well-tolerated soluble fiber (SunFiber®), and targeted botanicals and nutrients to address the functional derangements associated with metabolic syndrome - all in a great-tasting vanilla-cinnamon formula for easy patient compliance.

      Product Information

    • MediBolic is a rice and pea protein-based dietary supplement with the addition of soluble fiber, a complete multiple vitamin-mineral complex, and targeted botanicals and nutrients to address functional derangements associated with metabolic syndrome.*

      Key nutrients and botanicals for metabolic syndrome support included in MediBolic:

    • Madeglucyl® – a proprietary botanical extract pioneered by Indena, a leading innovator of botanical extracts. Madeglucyl is derived from Syzygium cumini (also known as Eugenia jambolana), which has been heavily researched in Europe and shown to support healthy blood sugar levels.*
    • CinSulin® – a 10:1 water extract of cinnamon. Cinnamon extracts have been shown to positively affect several aspects of metabolic syndrome in individuals with obesity, including maintenance of healthy blood sugar, blood pressure, lipids, and lean muscle mass.*
    • SunFiber® – a water-soluble, partially hydrolyzed guar gum fiber, providing 9 grams of soluble fiber per serving of MediBolic. Guar gum has been shown to aid satiety and improve the glycemic effect of a meal.* SunFiber is easily digestible with none of the gas and bloating often experienced with a high-fiber supplement.
    • Resveratrol – a polyphenol often found in red wine and many plants. Resveratrol has been shown to modulate many factors associated with metabolic syndrome – including endothelial function, blood sugar, and insulin sensitivity.*
    • Green tea phytosome – another Indena innovation, containing decaffeinated green tea extract bound to phosphatidylcholine for enhanced absorption. In a study of obese individuals, those who took green tea phytosome along with a low-calorie diet had significantly more weight loss and decreased body mass when compared to a group who ate only a low-calorie diet.*

    Melaton-5 - Product Image
    Melaton-5

    Melaton-5 BY Thorne Research

    to accommodate those needing higher supplementation

    • synthesis of melatonin can be decreased by the aging process
    • also available in 1-mg and 3-mg strengths
    • made without flowing agents that can inhibit bioavailability

    Product Information

    Melatonin, the primary hormone of the pineal gland, acts as a powerful "chronobiotic," helping to maintain normal circadian rhythms.* In individuals having difficulty sleeping or with altered circadian rhythms, such as occur in jet lag and night shift work, supplementation with melatonin can help provide the resynchronization of those cycles, at amounts ranging from 0.3-8.0 mg.* Synthesis of melatonin from the amino acid tryptophan can be decreased by the aging process. Melatonin is a potent antioxidant.* Adequate melatonin levels have been reported to be a positive factor cardiovascular, neuroendocrine, and bone health.*

    The timing of melatonin supplementation appears to be an important factor, with the most effective protocol being a diurnal cycle similar to the physiological rhythm of melatonin secretion, which is generally to take it once in the evening before going to bed.

    Studies have compared melatonin to other sleep aids to determine the ability to promote sleep and the effect on psychomotor performance. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, the sleep-promoting potential of melatonin (6-mg single dose) was analyzed and found to be effective.* The researchers (using the same patient group and melatonin dosage) also demonstrated that, despite a surprisingly prolonged period of perceived sleepiness (up to 4.75 hours), melatonin was superior in its lack of impact on performance of four separate tasks: serial reaction time, logical reasoning, serial subtraction task, and a multi-task test battery.*

    Thorne's Melaton-5 supplies 5 mg of melatonin in each capsule, to accommodate the needs of individuals who desire to supplement with a higher amount.

    Ingredients

    One Capsule Contains:
    Melatonin 5 mg.
    Other Ingredients: Microcrystalline Cellulose, Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, Silicon Dioxide, Leucine.

    Suggested Use: Take 1 capsule at bedtime or as recommended by a health-care practitioner.

    Meriva-500 - Product Image

    Meriva-500

    Meriva-500, 120 Caps by Thorne Research

    curcumin complexed with phosphatidylcholine for optimal absorption*

    • to help maintain the body's normal inflammatory response*
    • provides antioxidant support*
    • research suggests support for joint, eye, GI tract, liver, prostate, and nerve health*
    • can provide relief from occasional soreness*
    • increased blood levels of curcuminoids from phytosome preparation*

    Meriva-500 is a unique, patented curcumin product. People throughout Asia have benefited from the healthful effects of curcumin for centuries. Curcumin is the orange pigment in turmeric (the primary ingredient in curry), and is a potent antioxidant that offers numerous health benefits, including supporting joint health and hepatic, GI, and cardiovascular function, by helping to maintain the body's normal inflammatory response.*

    Whether taken as a supplement or from food, curcumin is generally poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. In conjunction with Indena S.p.A., the worldwide experts in botanical extract technology, we have uncovered the key to curcumin absorption - phytosome technology. Meriva curcumin phytosome is a unique curcumin extract that is significantly better absorbed than other curcumin extracts.*

    Phytosomes are plant extracts bound to phosphatidylcholine (PC), an essential component of human cells. Our bodies can make PC, but we can also get it from food or supplements. When taken orally, PC is very well absorbed. The scientists at Indena found a way to attach a curcumin extract to PC for superior absorption, resulting in Meriva. When you take Meriva your body absorbs the PC and the attached curcumin, resulting in more curcumin reaching the cells that can benefit from it.*

    A 2007 single-dose pharmacokinetic animal study demonstrated Meriva's superior bioavailability, compared to ordinary curcumin.* The results demonstrated a >20-fold increase in absorption of curcumin from Meriva versus a standard curcumin preparation.* In addition, a 2010 three-month clinical trial demonstrated 1,000 mg of Meriva-SR per day helped maintain healthy C-reactive protein levels and promoted healthy joint comfort and mobility.* Furthermore, a 2010 randomized, single-blind, crossover human study revealed total curcuminoid bioavailability, as evaluated by the plasma area under the curve (AUC), to be 29-fold higher for Meriva than for the conventional standardized curcumin extract.*

    Several studies have illustrated curcumin's hepatoprotective effects, leading researchers to suggest its use in protecting the liver from exogenous insults from environmental toxins.* Curcumin also has the capacity to increase both the flow and solubility of bile.* Curcumin's hepatoprotective effects are due in part to direct free-radical scavenging; but curcumin also enhances the body's natural antioxidant system, which increases glutathione levels, thereby aiding in hepatic detoxification and inhibiting nitrosamine formation.*
