The keystone of every nutritional product line is a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement. At Thorne Research, we believe this is the starting point for every individual's supplementation needs and that a multi-vitamin/mineral product should contain all of the essential nutrients. We also believe that by using the purest, most bioavailable raw materials – without adding any unnecessary additives and preservatives – every individual patient's outcome will be optimized.
Why should everyone take a multi-vitamin/mineral nutritional supplement?
Due to the state of the current food supply and because very few Americans eat the recommended five daily servings of health-giving fruits and vegetables, nutrition experts agree that a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement should be taken daily. Even the Journal of the American Medical Association – not usually known as a supporter of dietary supplements – agrees that everyone should be taking a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement (JAMA 2002;287:3127-3129). A good multi-vitamin/mineral nutritional supplement could be considered "dietary insurance" and a small price to pay to be certain you are getting all the essential nutrients daily, even when you don't eat right. Even greater health benefits can be realized when you eat a healthy diet in addition to taking a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement.
Basic Nutrients 2/Day, Thorne Research's newest Basic Nutrients formula, provides a comprehensive multi-vitamin/mineral complex. Its key nutritional features includes 2,000 IU of vitamin D3 and 400 mcg of vitamin K (in K1 and K2 forms) per serving, in addition to having mixed tocopherols, bioactive B-vitamins, and amino acid-chelated minerals, including calcium and magnesium – all in a two-capsule-per-day delivery system. Basic Nutrients 2/Day makes it easier to ensure that your patients are getting the foundational nutritional support they need for the day.

5-methyltetrahydrofolate supplementation is not recommended concurrently with methotrexate cancer therapy, as it can interfere with methotrexate's anti-neoplastic activity; however, this folate source has not been shown to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of methotrexate. An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.
