Individuals at high risk for mineral deficiencies include the elderly because of deteriorating digestion, children and teenagers because of poor diet, individuals who have an eating disorder, and anyone suffering from a chronic disease. Taking certain prescription medications can also result in mineral deficiencies. Because the mineral content of fruits and vegetables depends on the soil health of the crop it is grown in, even a healthy individual who maintains a good diet can be at risk for a mineral deficiency because of mineral-depleted soil.
By their very nature, minerals are not particularly well absorbed by the human body. In addition, various dietary, lifestyle, and health factors can have a negative impact on mineral absorption. One of the barriers to mineral absorption is overcoming the natural form the mineral comes in. Thorne’s mineral ingredients are primarily in their chelated form – the mineral is linked to an amino acid or an organic acid via a molecular reaction that provides a predictable, high quality, and hypoallergenic chelate. Thorne’s mineral supplements are designed for optimal absorption.*
When the highest standards have been met, Thorne creates higher ones.
Sourcing Exceptional Ingredients
We develop better standards for higher quality ingredients. Thorne cares deeply about where our ingredients come from. We partner only with suppliers whose practices emphasize quality, science, and responsibility. Better ingredients means better potency, absorption, and digestibility – and ultimately better health.
Manufacturing the Right Way
We manufacture our own products to ensure full supply chain transparency. For more than 30 years, we have invested in clean manufacturing practices. We refuse to use ingredients that can inhibit absorption. We perform our final production in the United States. Our Charleston, SC facility is third-party certified.
Four Rounds of Testing
We run four rounds of testing for each of our products. We have invested in two state-of-the-art in-house laboratories that allow us to conduct four rounds of testing, while most competitors test only one or two times. We test our raw materials, in-process batches, finish products, and product stability for each product.
We’re thinking sustainably to protect our environment. We believe the environment should never be compromised for the sake of business gain. At Thorne, we believe that doing our part to protect the environment and its most valuable resources goes hand in hand with our product quality standards.
