    Basic Nutrients III‚ by Thorne is a truly comprehensive multivitamin that does not contain iron or copper. What it does contain are the basic nutrients that are essential for the body to function at peak performance. The folks at Thorne believe that such a basic‚ yet comprehensive supplement should be the starting point for everyone’s supplementation needs.

    About Basic Nutrients III

    This multi-vitamin and mineral combination provides calcium‚ magnesium and potassium (as citrate mineral chelates). Aside from providing these minerals in well-absorbed chelates‚ the added citric acid also has its own health benefits. It is involved in the Krebs cycle‚ which is also called the citric acid cycle and is crucial for energy production‚ and is essential for metabolism. Citric acid has also been known to inhibit calcium oxalate and phosphate from ending up in the urine‚ keeping more of these essential minerals in your body.

    Basic Nutrients III includes all of the essential trace minerals with the exception of copper and iron. This is because not everyone needs to supplement with iron and copper and‚ for those individuals‚ excess exposure can be dangerous. Women who have undergone menopause and most men are not encouraged to take iron supplements without approval from their doctor. Also‚ most other people do not need to supplement with iron unless they have a specific condition that causes anemia. Copper is certainly an essential cofactor for many bodily enzymes‚ but some people have to be careful about their intake due to overexposure. Copper toxicity can be caused by certain diseases or from external exposure to copper (copper plumbing‚ for example). In some instances‚ both iron and copper can act as pro-oxidants (the exact opposite of antioxidants)‚ so it is safer for the general population not to supplement with either unless they have been instructed to do so by their doctor.

    The Thorne Difference

    This multivitamin by Thorne provides the active and usable forms of vitamins B2‚ B6‚ and B12‚ as well as chromium as an easily-absorbed nicotinate glycinate chelate.

    You’ll find that this Basic Nutrients product is free of hidden preservatives and pre-diluted ingredients. It provides active folate (in the form of calcium folinate and L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate in a balanced ratio).

    Why Is a Good Multi-Vitamin and Mineral Supplement Important?

    There are many schools of thought when it comes to nutrition‚ but there is one thing that just about everyone agrees on – few Americans get the proper vitamins and minerals from their diet. In order to do so‚ each person would need to eat five daily servings of fruits and vegetables. Recently‚ the Journal of the American Medical Association‚ who historically has not supported supplementation‚ has agreed that everyone should be taking a multivitamin. Even if you think you might be getting enough nutrition from food‚ you can think of a good multivitamin and mineral as dietary insurance – a backup‚ just in case you are lacking in one essential nutrient or another.

    Cons

    Six capsules to get full serving Thorne items are not cheap.

    Because the dose of Basic Nutrients III by Thorne Research is 6 per day, I can adjust the dosage throughout the day. I take 2 when I first wake up and go from there. Sometimes I'll take 1 before bed if I am run down.

    Pros

    6 a day let's me vary dosage.

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    I took a whole foods supplement for many, many years, since my mid-twenties. I stopped taking it several years ago after deciding there is no solid research that advocates the benefits of taking supplements. Well, I've decided to take some supplements (again) in the hope that my under active thyroid can be tamed, and some of its symptoms (extreme fatigue, painful thumb joints, etc.) can be alleviated. The fatigue can be severely crippling some days, and I am NOT liking that symptom!!! So, after much research, and the advice of a friend who has had wonderful health success with a naturopath physician in Wichita, I've decided to start with two basic supplements -- Thorne Research Basic Nutrients III (w/o copper and iron) plus a quality Omega-3, Carlson Super Omega 3 Gems (500mg EPA/DHA). After taking these two supplements for only 5 days, I am noticing a definite improvement in my overall energy, stamina and endurance, along with reduced pain in my thumb joints. In addition, my overall mental attitude and motivation seem to be improved too! To start slowly and avoid any possible digestive upset, I have been taking only 2 multivitamins and 1 fish oil capsule daily. I intend to increase that to 3 multivitamins and 2 fish oil capsules within the next few days.

    Pros

    Easy to swallow with a small amount of milk (my body tolerates milk well)

    Cons

    No dislikes at this time
    I would recommend this item to a friend.
