The keystone of every nutritional product line is a multiple vitamin-mineral supplement. At Thorne, they believe this is the starting point for every individual's supplementation needs and that these products should contain all the essential nutrients. They also believe that by using the purest, most bioavailable raw materials those without unnecessary additives and preservatives every individual's outcome will be optimized.
Why should everyone take a multiple vitamin-mineral supplement? Nutrition experts agree that, due to the state of the current food supply and because few Americans eat the recommended five servings daily of health-giving fruits and vegetables, a multiple vitamin-mineral formulation should be taken daily.* Even the Journal of the American Medical Association, not known as a supporter of dietary supplements, has finally agreed that everyone should take a multi. A multi could be considered "dietary insurance," a small price to pay to be sure you get all the essential nutrients daily, even if you don't eat right.* Even greater health benefits can be realized if you eat a healthy diet in addition to taking a multi.
