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.

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.*

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.

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™ – 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.

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.

Perfusia Plus

Perfusia Plus

Sustained-release L-arginine PLUS nutrient and botanical cofactors for optimal blood vessel health*

  • Sustained-release L-arginine for nitric oxide production*
  • 5MTHF (active folate), Ascorbic Acid – cofactors for nitric oxide production*
  • R-Lipoic Acid, Resveratrol, Green Tea Phytosome – proven to promote blood vessel health*
  • Product Information

    After the introduction of our original Perfusia-SR formula seven years ago, it quickly became one of our best-selling formulas. This was due to the fact that there is significant research on the cardiovascular benefits of L-arginine, and because Perfusia-SR does what it is supposed to do – it supports vascular health and blood flow.*

    Perfusia Plus improves on the original Perfusia-SR by combining sustained-release L-arginine with nutritional cofactors involved in nitric oxide synthesis in the blood vessels (5MTHF, ascorbic acid), in addition to antioxidants and botanicals that enhance nitric oxide synthesis and increase blood flow (R-lipoic acid, green tea extract, and resveratrol).* Perfusia-SR is still available for our customers who want to use L-arginine by itself.

Ingredients

Three Capsules Contain:
Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid) 300 mg.
Folate (as 5-Methyltetrahydrofolate) 552 mcg.

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.

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.*

Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid) 250 mg

L-Tryptophan - Product Image
L-Tryptophan

L-Tryptophan by Thorne Research - Mood & Sleep

 

L-Tryptophan

Precursor to serotonin, melatonin, and niacin

  • 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.

Ingredients

Two Capsules Contain:
L-Tryptophan 1 g.
Other Ingredients: Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, Leucine, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Silicon Dioxide.



Suggested Use: Take 1-2 capsules two times daily or as recommended by a health-care practitioner.

Perma-Clear - Product Image
Perma-Clear

Perma-Clear by Thorne Research

for intestinal permeability support*

  • helps maintain a healthy intestinal lining*
  • promotes beneficial gut flora*
  • supports gut immunity*
  • helps maintain normal inflammatory processes in the intestines*

Product Information

Altered intestinal microbial flora can occur alone, but it is often just one component of less than optimal gastrointestinal health, which can also include malabsorption and increased gut permeability. In the latter, molecules that would otherwise be too large to cross the gut mucosa are absorbed into the bloodstream, which can result in food allergies, autoimmune processes, and other systemic symptoms.

Perma-Clear provides nutrients and botanicals that nourish the intestinal tract and promote normal gut permeability.* Glutamine nourishes and soothes intestinal mucosal cells, N-acetylglucosamine promotes a normal mucus layer in the gut and the growth of desirable Bifidobacterium bifidum; ginger provides antioxidant activity; and quercetin dampens histamine release.* Lactobacillus sporogenes promotes beneficial gut flora and Saccharomyces boulardii stimulates immune health in the gut.*

Ingredients

Three Capsules Contain:
L-Glutamine 900 mg.
N-Acetylglucosamine 750 mg.
Saccharomyces boulardii 112.5 mg.

Formula SF722 - Product Image
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.*

Ingredients

Five Gelcaps Contain:
10-Undecenoic Acid 250 mg.

DHEA-15 (15 mg) - Product Image
DHEA-15 (15 mg)

DHEA is the principal steroid hormone secreted by the adrenal glands. Production of this important hormone declines with age, and research indicates supplementation improves both physical and psychological well-being. Thorne Research provides DHEA in both 5 mg and 15 mg capsules.

DHEA-15

beneficial yeast for the GI tract*

  • supports healthy aging*
  • enhances physical and psychological wellbeing*
  • supplementation optimizes mood and memory in elderly*
  • adrenal precursor for steroid hormones*

Plasma levels of DHEA begin to decline progressively with age starting around age 40, such that plasma levels of DHEA at age 70 are usually about 20 percent of those in young adults. Reports indicate elderly individuals who supplement with 5-25 mg/day DHEA, as an encapsulated powder in two or three divided amounts, often experience improved mood, energy levels, memory, appetite, and skin condition.* Supplementing with DHEA is also associated with supporting cardiovascular health and carbohydrate metabolism, and enhancing weight management, cognitive function, and immune health.*

Meta-Fem - Product Image
Meta-Fem

Meta-Fem

a comprehensive vitamin-mineral supplement for women over 40

  • provides the active forms of folic acid – L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate and folinic acid in a balanced 1:1 ratio
  • contains more calcium and magnesium in the highly absorbable citrate-malate form
  • provides the active, readily usable forms of vitamins B6 and B2
  • use in conjunction with Meta-Balance for additional support during menopause*
  • provides botanical support for a healthy hormone balance*

Product Information

The keystone of every nutritional product line is a multiple vitamin-mineral supplement. At Thorne, we believe this is the starting point for every individual's supplementation needs and that these products should contain all the essential nutrients. We also believe that by using the purest, most bioavailable raw materials – those without unnecessary additives and preservatives – every individual's outcome will be optimized.

Women who are peri- or postmenopausal need vitamins and minerals for maintenance of healthy bones, as well as specific nutritional support for hormonal changes they are experiencing.* Meta-Fem is a complete dietary supplement for women of either peri- or postmenopausal age.* It contains more calcium than our other multi formulas because women need more absorbable calcium and other nutrients that support good bone health.* Meta-Fem features calcium citrate-malate (shown to be significantly better absorbed than calcium carbonate or oyster shell calcium*). Meta-Fem also contains 1,600 IU of pure vitamin D in a full daily dose to help maintain bone and immune health.* Meta-Fem contains no iron, as the need for iron usually lessens as a woman enters menopause.* If a woman in the perimenopausal period is experiencing abnormally heavy menses, it is recommended that she take Nutri-Fem or add a blood-building formula such as Ferrasorb.*

In addition, specific nutrients and botanicals have been added with the special needs of this population of women in mind. Wild yam provides phytoprogesterone-like effects, while dong quai has been used in traditional Chinese medicine, along with other herbs, for the control of vasomotor symptoms of menopause.* Hesperidin methyl chalcone is also included because of its potential to ease hot flashes.* While these additions to Meta-Fem may lessen the occurrence of uncomfortable symptoms associated with menopause, it has been designed to be used in conjunction with Meta-Balance for additional menopause support.*

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.

    Stress B-Complex (formerly B-Complex #5) - Product Image
    Stress B-Complex (formerly B-Complex #5)

    a vitamin B complex with extra B5 for adrenal support and stress management*

    • unlike many B vitamin products, Stress B-Complex contains the active forms for enhanced bioavailability*
    • Stress B-Complex contains an optimal balance of essential B vitamins with extra vitamin B5 as calcium pantothenate
    • Stress B-Complex is yeast free

    Product Information

    Healthy adrenal glands play an important role in managing stress effectively. Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) is part of the B-vitamin complex and is essential for healthy adrenal and immune function.* In particular, pantothenic acid serves as the starting material for the synthesis of coenzyme A, which is important for metabolism of fats and synthesis of adrenal hormones.* Pantothenic acid plays a key role in the formation of acetylcholine, which is needed in the transmission of nerve impulses.* Thorne Research's Stress B-Complex supplies 250 mg of pantothenic acid and the bioactive forms of the other B vitamins in each capsule to ensure you get the most bioavailable B-complex available.*

    Stress B-Complex consists of a group of eight water-soluble compounds: thiamin (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacinamide (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine and pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (vitamin B6), methylcobalamin (vitamin B12), folate (5-methyltetrahydrofolate), and biotin. Although each B vitamin is chemically distinct, they regularly work together in various biochemical functions throughout the body – including cellular energy production, healthy red-blood-cell formation, and healthy neurological function.* Most B vitamins, with the exception of vitamin B12, are not stored in the body; consequently, they must be acquired daily from the diet in order to maintain optimal health.*

    Supplementing with active B vitamins is extremely important to everyone, especially individuals who might not be able to convert non-active vitamins to the active forms in the liver because of compromised liver function, poorly functioning enzymes, digestive disturbances, or age.* Dietary supplements containing these active cofactors have enhanced bioavailability, ensuring the body gets the nutrients it needs.*

    Ingredients

    Sedaplus - Product Image
    Sedaplus

    Sedaplus by Thorne Research

    sedative-like herbs for restful sleep*

    • slows down an overactive mind*
    • promotes a calm, relaxed mental state*
    • without preservatives, magnesium stearate, or other lubricants and diluents
    • made without flowing agents that can inhibit bioavailability

    Product Information

    Anyone who has pulled an all-night study session, or stayed up until the wee hours working on a project with a next-morning deadline, or driven long distances, knows the longer you go without sleep, the worse your ability to perform becomes, both mentally and physically. As with the need for food and water, humans need sleep. We spend one-third of our lives in a state of relative unconsciousness, but no one has figured out exactly why we need to sleep. Some sleep experts believe that while we sleep the brain is busy compiling what we learned during the day, creating new synapses. Other experts believe the brain spends its down-time recharging and relating to what we have learned during the day, making the new synapses created during waking hours more efficient. Either way, when it is difficult to get to sleep or stay asleep it can wreak havoc on our bodies and minds. So-called sleep debt is unhealthy; in fact, it is a risk factor for the good health of numerous systems in our bodies.

    Supplementation with botanicals like valerian, rhodiola, passion flower, and others; relaxants like GABA and the sleep-inducing melatonin; and the use of neurotransmitter precursors to melatonin like L-tryptophan and 5-HTP, can be helpful in retraining the nervous system to produce restful and restorative sleep.*

    Alone and in combination with hops (Humulus lupulus), valerian (Valeriana officinalis) promotes the ability to initiate sleep and enhance sleep quality.* Valerian stimulates GABA (a brain chemical that causes relaxation) release, which acts in combination with valerian's regulatory effect on the nervous system to cause relaxation.*

    Hops and chamomile (Matricaria recutita) are indicated for promoting restful, restorative sleep and are also helpful for stress-related gastrointestinal upset.* Chamomile has been shown to reduce levels of ACTH, a hormone formed in the pituitary gland that stimulates the adrenal gland to secrete its hormones.* Chamomile also appears to increase the effects of GABA.* A similar calming effect is also attributed to passion flower (Passiflora incarnata), which is indicated for general nervous agitation, including inability to sleep due to an overactive mind.*

    The restorative sleep attributes of Sedaplus are further strengthened by the central nervous system adaptogen Rhodiola rosea, which decreases physiological responses to stress and slows down the overactive mind for a restful sleep.*

    One Capsule Contains:
    Valerian extract (root) (Valeriana officinalis) 200 mg.
    Chamomile extract (flower) (Matricaria recutita) 50 mg.

    DHEA-25 - Product Image
    DHEA-25

    DHEA-25 by THorne Research

    25 mg dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), a key adrenal hormone*

    • supports healthy aging*
    • enhances physical and psychological wellbeing*
    • supplementation optimizes mood and memory in elderly*
    • adrenal precursor for steroid hormones*

    Product Information

    Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a natural steroid hormone produced by the adrenal glands and a precursor of the human sex hormones, testosterone and estrogen. With age, production of this hormone declines. Current research indicates supplementation with DHEA (when found to be low) can improve both physical and psychological wellbeing.*

    Plasma levels of DHEA begin to decline progressively with age starting around age 40, such that plasma levels of DHEA at age 70 are usually about 20 percent of those in young adults. Reports indicate elderly individuals who supplement with 5-25 mg/day DHEA, as an encapsulated powder in two or three divided amounts, often experience improved mood, energy levels, memory, appetite, and skin condition.* Supplementing with DHEA is also associated with supporting cardiovascular health and carbohydrate metabolism, and enhancing weight management, cognitive function, and immune health.*

    Ingredients

    One Capsule Contains:
    Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) 25 mg.
    Other Ingredients: Microcrystalline Cellulose, Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, Leucine, Silicon Dioxide.

    Suggested Use: Take 1 capsule one to four times daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.

    Q-Best 50 - Product Image
    Q-Best 50

    Q-Best 50 (formerly known as Q-Cell)

    In fish gelatin gelcaps!
    exclusive crystal-free CoQ10 for superior absorption

    • Proprietary formula demonstrated superior absorption over other CoQ10 forms, including dry powder, oil, nanoparticle, and liposomal preparations
    • Promotes normal cardiovascular function*
    • Enhances blood vessel function*
    • Essential nutrient for cellular energy production*
    • All-natural – no chemical additives or titanium dioxide

    Product Information

    Q-Best® is a proprietary, crystal-free preparation of coenzyme Q10 (aka ubiquinone) that consistently has demonstrated superior absorption over other forms of CoQ10, including dry powder, oil-based softgels, lipsosomes, micelles, and nanoparticle preparations.

    All supplemental CoQ10 originates in a crystal (dry powder) form. However, this crystal form alone is not well absorbed because the crystals do not fully dissolve in the intestines and the body cannot absorb lipid crystals. When crystals are dissolved in a lipid-based delivery system (ie, oil-based softgels, liposomes, micelles, and nanoparticles), absorption is improved. However, there is still partial crystallization found in these preparations.

    Q-Best provides CoQ10 in a fully dissolved, crystal-free, lipid-based form, allowing greater absorption by the intestinal mucosa. This is accomplished by a proprietary, tri-lipid delivery system. One lipid keeps the CoQ10 crystals fully dissolved at 10°C above body temperature; the second lipid keeps the CoQ10 crystals fully dissolved below body temperature; and the third lipid acts as a carrier molecule to facilitate absorption.

    Clinical trials demonstrate superior absorption over dried powder preparations. One human bioavailability trial demonstrated a 265% higher CoQ10 blood level from Q-Best, compared to dry powder. In addition, a plasma CoQ10 bioavailability study observed absorption Q-Best to be vastly greater than other forms of CoQ10, including oils suspension, nanoparticle, and liposomal preparations. This is why we believe Q-Best is the best CoQ10 formula available today.

    Coenzyme Q10 functions as an intracellular antioxidant.* Due to its involvement in energy production within the cell, CoQ10 affects the function of all cells in the body, making it essential for the health of tissues and organs.* CoQ10 particularly benefits the most metabolically active cells: heart, immune system, gingiva, and gastric mucosa.* An adequate supply of intracellular CoQ10 is vital to the health of heart muscle.* CoQ10 supports normal heart rhythm and can help maintain already normal blood pressure.*

    Bariatric Nutrients - Product Image
    Bariatric Nutrients

    Bariatric Nutrients

    By Thorne Research: vitamin/mineral formula for bariatric surgery patients

    • Healing requires specific nutrients
    • Most obese individuals are nutrient deficient
    • Provides a full array of essential nutrients
    • Includes nutrients often deficient in this population
    • Activated B-vitamins for best bioavailability
    • Highest quality with no magnesium stearate, flavors, colors, or preservatives

    Product Information

    No matter which bariatric procedure is performed, the objective is to absorb fewer macro-nutrients than the body needs, which achieves the desired weight loss. However, this also causes decreased intake and/or absorption of micro-nutrients that are essential for the healing process and for normal metabolic activity. Bariatric Nutrients from Thorne Research provides a complete array of vitamins and minerals necessary for normal metabolic activity as well as the stresses placed on the body by bariatric surgery and the subsequent post-surgery weight loss.*

    At Thorne Research we believe everybody needs to take a multivitamin-mineral supplement to augment nutrients obtained from the diet. This is especially true for the obese population. Obesity poses a unique problem in that obese individuals are often deficient in a number of vitamins and minerals pre-operatively; therefore it is imperative that bariatric surgery patients take a daily multiple.* Bariatric Nutrients includes absorbable and bioavailable vitamins and minerals, especially those nutrients most often deficient in bariatric surgery patients, including iron, vitamin B12, folate, and vitamin D. Bariatric Nutrients also contains a spectrum of antioxidants, including glutathione, Coenzyme Q10, flavonoids, and R-lipoic acid. Pure trans-resveratrol has been shown to support normal metabolic activity, liver function, and fat metabolism.

    Bariatric Nutrients contains the highest quality nutrients without any unnecessary ingredients like sugars, colors, or preservatives. Bariatric Nutrients also doesn't contain any hidden ingredients like lactose, which is present in many other vitamin supplements, or magnesium stearate, a saturated fat and the most common excipient in nutritional supplements. Magnesium stearate can negatively affect the absorption of nutrients in the normal individual. In those with a surgically altered gastrointestinal tract this decrease in nutrient absorption may be amplified.

    Q10 Plus

    coenzyme Q10 with nutrients and botanicals to benefit the heart*

    • nutritional support for a healthy heart muscle*
    • helps maintain already normal blood pressure*
    • supports good circulation*
    • enhances integrity of the blood vessels*

    Product Information

    This combination of coenzyme Q10, hawthorne (Crataegus oxycantha), potassium, taurine, and magnesium provides the heart muscle with nutrients for healthy functioning.*

    CoQ10 is a vital element for the heart.* Cells of the heart muscle have a high metabolism and need CoQ10 as an energy-producing cofactor.* CoQ10 also serves as an antioxidant.* Numerous studies on CoQ10 show its benefit in cardiovascular function.* In a 73-subject study with CoQ10 supplementation at 120 mg daily, improvements were observed after 28 days.*

    Taurine is an essential nutrient cofactor for cardiac function and the most abundant amino acid in the heart.* Research indicates supplementation with taurine supports already normal levels of cholesterol, probably due to taurine's ability to help convert cholesterol to bile acids.* In addition, taurine aids in the regulation of intracellular calcium levels, which helps protect the heart muscle and support cardiac function.*

    Flavonoid compounds in hawthorne appear to strengthen blood vessels and support cardiac function; whereas, flavonoids in Ginkgo promote blood flow.* Hawthorne has been shown to be supportive of good cardiac health by helping to maintain already normal blood pressure, heart rate, and exercise capacity.* The flavonoids in hawthorne and Ginkgo act as antioxidants and may improve artery function, which promotes dilation and blood flow.*

    Magnesium and potassium are minerals necessary for proper cardiovascular function.*

    Calcium-Magnesium Citramate, 90 Vegetarian Capsules - Product Image
    Calcium-Magnesium Citramate, 90 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.

    Suggested Use: One capsule three times daily, or as otherwise directed by a health-care practitioner.

    Super EPA Pro - Product Image
    Super EPA Pro

    Super EPA Pro by Thorne Research

    Highly-concentrated EPA for maintenance of healthy lipid levels*

    • green technology – Supercritical Fluid Technology (CO2 extraction) for maximum EPA concentration
    • 650 mg EPA/100 mg DHA per gelcap
    • incomparable purity and quality you expect from Thorne
    • capsule size is about 20% smaller than equivalent competitor products
    • free of heavy metals, PCBs, and dioxins

    Product Information

    Studies demonstrate that the higher the concentration of EPA in a capsule, the more effective it is in maintaining healthy triglyceride levels.* Quite simply, it's what is NOT in the capsule that is key. For example, a typical 1,000 mg fish oil capsule might have 300-500 mg of omega-3s and 500-700 mg of other saturated and unsaturated fats per capsule – fats that can interfere with the efficacy of the omega-3s.

    Super EPA Pro is manufactured using Supercritical Fluid Technology, which utilizes low temperatures and standardized pressures. The result is a pure, highly-concentrated product containing 650 mg EPA and 100 mg DHA per softgel. The low temperatures used in the extraction process assure maintenance of molecular integrity. During the processing the product is manufactured under a nitrogen blanket to ensure the supercritical oil stays fresh throughout the process, preventing oxidation of the oils.

    Super EPA Pro contains omega-3 oils from small, non-accumulating fish, harvested from pristine Peruvian waters. The fish oil is from a sustainable source, which is monitored closely by sonar buoys to determine how many fish are in a particular area in order to prevent depletion of the population. The result is the most sustainable source of wild fish in the marketplace.

    Two Gelcaps Contain:
    Calories 20
    Calories from Fat 20

    Other Ingredients: Gelatin (from tilapia), Purified Water and Glycerin (vegetable source) gelcap, Vitamin E (mixed tocopherols).

    *This product uses Supercritical CO2 extracted and chromatographed fish oil derived solely from anchovies.

    Contains ingredients derived from fish (gelatin = tilapia) (fish oil = anchovy).

    Suggested Use: Take 2 gelcaps two times daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.

    Coleus Forskohlii - Product Image
    Coleus Forskohlii

    Coleus Forskohlii by Thorne Research

    decreases histamine release by increasing cAMP

  • supports normal respiratory and nasal function
  • helps maintain skin health
  • balances the cAMP/cGMP ratio
  • made without flowing agents that can inhibit bioavailability
  • An Ayurvedic herb, Coleus forskohlii, commonly known as Indian Coleus, is a tropical perennial plant related to the typical coleus species and grows in subtropical areas in India, Burma, and Thailand. Coleus forskohlii root contains the constituent forskolin, which increases cellular cyclic AMP (cAMP) concentrations in the body.* Coleus extracts, and the subsequent increase in cAMP, can help decrease histamine release from mast cells and basophils, with concomitant benefits to respiratory and nasal support.* Studies suggest the increased cAMP stimulated by Coleus extracts relaxes respiratory airway smooth muscle, helping to maintain healthy respiratory function. Coleus extracts also help maintain healthy skin, especially in cases of dry, flaky skin.

    In vitro studies show Coleus may stimulate fat metabolism and promote weight management in individuals with low cAMP production.

    Ingredients:

    One Capsule Contains:
    Coleus forskohlii extract (root) 100 mg.

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

    Suggested Use: One capsule two to three times daily, or as otherwise directed by a health-care practitioner.

    Cortine, 60's

    Cortine by Thorne Research

    whole adrenal and adrenal cortex in one capsule for healthy adrenal function

  • supports the body's normal stress response
  • glandular nutrition for the adrenals
  • helps maintain physical and mental stamina
  • without preservatives, magnesium stearate, or other lubricants and diluents
  • 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 take their toll on the adrenal glands. Cortisol, a hormone produced by the adrenal glands in times of stress, is important in regulating blood sugar and maintaining healthy immune function, fertility, and overall physical and mental stamina. Usually the adrenal glands can cope with the demands of everyday life. However, in an environment of chronic stress the adrenal glands can become overworked, which can potentially lead to problems throughout the body.

    Whole adrenal and adrenal cortex tissue extracts play a valuable role in supporting healthy adrenal glands - which helps maintain immune function and a feeling of energy.* Glandulars also help support healthy cortisol levels.* Cortine combines the overall nutritive properties of pure, whole adrenal tissue and adrenal cortex tissue for focused support and healthy adrenal function.

    I have been a customer for some time now and I just want to thank you for your wonderful service. In all the time I have dealt with your company, I have never had a disappointing experience. I have always received my supplements in an expeditious manner and I've never received an order with any problems.

    It is truly a pleasure to do business with you folks. I am a committed customer and do not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who is interested."

    "There are several Total Supplements' products that I rely on to keep me healthy and functioning. I usually try to order them in advance but sometimes forget or have to wait to order. I am and can always be confident that they will arrive very quickly, much quicker than any other product that I order (that aren't even of the same quality). I have been a customer for well over 5 years and have confidence in saying that they will get you your product fast."
