Thorne Basic Detox Nutrients - 360 capsules
Basic Detox Nutrients is the most comprehensive multi formula that provides detox factors to help the body deal with a toxic environment. It also contains high levels of nutrients commonly depleted by environmental toxins.
Environmental toxins such as formaldehyde and chlorinated pesticides are almost inescapable in today's world. Thorne's Basic Detox Nutrients is a complete multi-vitamin/mineral formula with higher levels of those nutrients commonly depleted by environmental toxins, and with nutrients and botanicals that help the body deal with a toxic environment. Its nutrients include B vitamins, magnesium citrate and magnesium malate (well-absorbed forms of magnesium, a commonly deficient nutrient in a chemically toxic individual), choline (essential for producing liver detoxification enzymes), N-acetylcysteine, MSM, and R-lipoic acid. Thorne's Basic Detox Nutrients also contains green tea, milk thistle, and curcumin extracts as well-absorbed phytosomes. Basic Detox Nutrients can be used as part of a cleansing program or as a stand-alone product for preventive wellness.
Additional information on the ingredients in Thorne's Basic Detox Nutrients and their related benefits:
B vitamins: Thiamine (vitamin B1) is essential to restore the body's antioxidant defenses – glutathione and lipoic acid. Thiamine is depleted by chlorinated pesticides and formaldehyde, two ubiquitous environmental toxins. Riboflavin 5'-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B2) helps block free radical damage by recycling glutathione. Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B6) is depleted by many toxic substances, and a vitamin B6 deficiency makes it difficult for the liver to detoxify.
Magnesium is one of the most commonly deficient nutrients in a chemically toxic individual. Choline is needed for the production of liver detoxification enzymes, N-acetylcysteine increases glutathione levels, MSM provides sulfur for detoxification reactions, and R-lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant that increases glutathione levels.
Botanical extracts: Green tea extract has potent antioxidant activity. Milk thistle has proven ability to increase liver glutathione levels and resist liver cell damage from toxins. Curcumin extract (from turmeric) protects the liver and has been shown to suppress several common chemical toxins. Green tea, milk thistle, and curcumin are all provided bound to phospholipids as phytosomes, Greenselect®, Siliphos®, and Meriva®, respectively. The phytosome form of these nutrients significantly increase the absorption of these flavonoids.

This product is contraindicated in an individual with a history of hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients.
Iodine may occasionally cause an allergic reaction in some individuals.
If pregnant, consult your health professional before using this product.
As vitamin K interferes with the effect of anticoagulant drugs (like Coumadin), the concurrent use of these agents should be avoided.
Folinic acid and 5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate supplementation is not recommended concurrently with methotrexate cancer therapy, as they can interfere with methotrexate's anti-neoplastic activity; however, these folate sources have 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.
Curcumin has been shown to reduce the therapeutic efficacy of cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan) in animal studies. In vitro research reveals curcumin decreased camptothecin-induced death of cultured breast cancer cells. Curcumin might also interfere with the absorption and efficacy of the chemotherapy drug irinotecan, used to treat colon cancer. The concurrent use of curcumin with these agents should be avoided.
