Super EPA Product Information
Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids because humans must get them from food or supplementation; i.e., they cannot be made from other substances in the body. Essential omega-3 fatty acids from fish, EPA and DHA, are beneficial for the cardiovascular system.* They support good circulation by maintaining healthy blood vessels, enhancing blood flow by optimizing vascular endothelial function, and maintaining already normal triglyceride and cholesterol levels.*

Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are also supportive of healthy brain function.* EPA and DHA are important throughout adulthood, as well as during periods of increased brain growth that characterize prenatal and postnatal development.* Dietary supplementation with DHA and EPA has proven beneficial for a number of the known higher mental functions.*

Super EPA (an EPA/DHA-containing fish oil supplement) has been one of Thorne Research's best-selling products for over two decades because of its exceptional purity and quality. Recent technology has permitted an increase in the amount of EPA and DHA in each gelcap. This more concentrated formula provides the amounts of EPA and DHA that recent research says is warranted, without having to take extra capsules.* As always, Thorne Research provides the highest quality, purest fish oil available. Molecular distillation is utilized to ensure removal of cholesterol and contaminants, including PCBs and heavy metals.

D 1000 Product Information
It is essential to maintain healthy vitamin D levels throughout all stages of life, from fetal development to old age.* Vitamin D helps protect a number of important functions in the body.* The current recommended daily vitamin D intake of 400 IUs is based on the minimum allowance to protect against bone disease. However, an upward revision of the FDA's guideline is now under consideration in light of new research, especially pertaining to immune function. Cutting-edge research suggests serum vitamin D levels should be in the range of 32-80 ng/mL 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D). Although direct sunlight exposure is a good source of vitamin D, many people do not get enough sun due to season change, latitude, or lifestyle. Therefore, vitamin D supplementation can be of great benefit in these cases.*

The amount of vitamin D needed to achieve minimum vitamin D sufficiency (commonly defined as a 32 ng/mL 25(OH)D blood level) depends on many factors and can vary significantly from individual to individual. Thus, the requirement for vitamin D supplementation needs to be individualized. Thorne's D-1,000 supplies 1,000 IU of pure, vitamin D3 in each vegetarian capsule. This potency is ideal for maintaining optimum vitamin D levels in healthy individuals.*

Some vitamins, because of their potency, are usually given in very small amounts. Examples of such "micro-dose" vitamins include vitamin D, vitamin K, and vitamin B12. Most dietary supplement manufacturers purchase "micro-dose" vitamins from raw material suppliers as premixed dilutions, meaning the vitamins (in powder form) are mixed with other powdered substances that in turn make it easier for the manufacturer to handle and mix a larger quantity of raw material. Unfortunately, the powdered substances used in these premixed dilutions frequently contain potentially detrimental ingredients such as lactose and also the preservatives BHT, BHA, sodium benzoate, and sorbic acid.

At Thorne Research, our promise is to give you the purest supplements humanly possible. Therefore, we do not purchase premixed dilutions of any "micro-dose" vitamins. Instead, we purchase pure, undiluted vitamins and create our own dilutions when it is necessary to do so, using pure, hypoallergenic powders, such as magnesium citrate or plant cellulose The resultant premixture is then added to the dietary supplement being made, ensuring the proper amount of each pure nutrient is contained in each capsule.

Vitamin D (as Vitamin D3) 1,000 IU

L-Lysine Product Information
L-lysine, an essential amino acid, cannot be synthesized in the body. Vegetarians can be deficient in lysine because, while meat, poultry, and milk are rich sources of lysine, proteins in grains and cereals are typically low in lysine. Of the many biological functions requiring lysine, some notable applications include synthesis of connective tissues such as bone, skin, collagen, and elastin; synthesis of carnitine and the resultant conversion of fatty acids to energy; support for healthy growth and development in children; and maintenance of a healthy immune function.*

Ingredients
One Capsule Contains:
Lysine (as L-Lysine Monohydrochloride) 500 mg.
Other Ingredients: Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, Leucine, Silicon Dioxide.

Suggested Use: Take 1 capsule two to three times daily or as recommended by a health-care practitioner.

Iron Picolinate Product Information
Most of the body's iron is found in hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying molecule in red blood cells. Smaller amounts are found in the tissues as myoglobin and as cofactors for many enzymes. Because of its central role in the hemoglobin molecule, iron is essential for formation of red blood cells.*

To determine the iron status of persons in the United States, the Centers for Disease Control calculated the prevalence of iron deficiency and iron-deficient anemia from data collected from physical exams and household interviews within a sample of the U.S. civilian, non-institutionalized population. The prevalence of iron deficiency was greatest among toddlers, ages 1-2 years (7%), and menstruating adolescent and adult females, ages 12-49 (9-16%).

An iron deficiency can manifest as weakness, fatigue, shortness of breath on exertion, dizziness, tinnitus, spots before the eyes, drowsiness, irritability, infrequent menstruation, and loss of libido.*

What is picolinic acid? Picolinic acid is a metabolite of tryptophan, is similar to niacin, and is naturally produced in the pancreas. Picolinic acid can bind to minerals in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and facilitate their absorption into the bloodstream.* Conventional iron supplementation, including forms such as ferrous sulfate, can cause GI side effects - including nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, and dark-colored stools - because these conventional forms are poorly absorbed.

Thorne Research's Iron Picolinate provides 25 mg of elemental iron per capsule reacted with picolinic acid for superior absorption in the GI tract, thus preventing the typical GI side effects.*

Ingredients
One Capsule Contains:
Iron (as Iron Picolinate) 25 mg.
Other Ingredients: Aspartic Acid, Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, Leucine, Silicon Dioxide.

Suggested Use: Take 1 capsule one to three times daily or as recommended by a health-care practitioner.
