Back To The Basics Multivitamin-Mineral


Everyone can benefit from a multivitamin-mineral supplement.

We all have individual biochemical ‘glitches’ that may keep us from absorbing every single nutrient we need.  This is where supplementation comes in handy.  That being said, it should be easy, too.  

This is why we love Thorne’s Basic Nutrients 2/Day - it’s got everything you need and in only two capsules a day.

One of the other awesome things about this multivitamin-mineral is that it’s got the NSF Certified for Sport® badge, ensuring that it’s free of over 200 banned substances for competitive athletes.  So, you can feel safe taking this vitamin if you’re a professional competitor.

Lastly, you can think of this multivitamin-mineral as inexpensive health insurance.  It’s tough to get the recommended five servings of fruits and veggies, along with other nutrient rich foods if you’re busy or travelling. The nutrients contained in this vitamin are the purest and best absorbed forms of each, without all the binders, fillers and other junk found in most other multivitamin-minerals.

Reasons To Use Basic Nutrients 2/Day:

  • Athletes need approximately twice the micronutrients a sedentary person needs.

  • Convenient 2 capsules a day dosing - take in the AM with some food, or you can take 1 in the AM and 1 with dinner.

  • Keep your diet rich in nutrients when you don’t have time to eat as well as you normally do.

  • Support your immune system with the clinically significant levels of vitamin A, C, D, zinc and selenium, among others.

  • Feel confident knowing that this supplement is super clean - there’s nothing in here except what’s listed on the label, in the exact amount written.

Skip the one-a-day multivitamins - chances are it’s held together with shellac (that’s what you put on wood to make it shiny) and full of other binding agents (glues) and gross preservatives to make it look pretty.  You really don’t need any of that stuff!

Be sure to take it with food and plenty of water to maximize absorption and utilization of the nutrients.

A good, foundational supplement protocol also includes a  probiotic and fish oil along with a good  multivitamin-mineral Stay healthy!
