The journey toward optimum animal health starts by partnering with a trusted health-care practitioner. Health-care practitioners trust and rely on Thorne Research for superior ingredients, innovative formulations, and hypoallergenic products. They know that Thorne's commitment to quality is unparalleled and that commitment has been the driving force for Thorne Research for 25 years.
None of Thorne Vet's animal health products contain potentially allergenic fillers, binders, or lubricants. Even the most allergic pet can use Thorne Vet products.
Why Thorne? Reason #1: Pure Ingredients
Thorne uses the purest ingredients available. A lot of companies make the same statement, but what you don't see are the potentially allergenic ingredients used by other companies. Companies are not required to list ingredients if they aren't added at the time the product is manufactured.
Why Thorne? Reason #2: No Impure Additives
Companies are required to list additives when they are added at the time the product is manufactured. Thorne is the ONLY company to use pure, hypoallergenic ingredients – from raw materials to the finished product. We NEVER use the common, inexpensive, potentially harmful additives often used by other companies, and we never will. That's why health-care practitioners trust Thorne Vet.
Why Thorne? Reason #3: Absorption
Thorne products contain no lubricants made of ingredients that can prevent animals from absorbing the active nutrients. Lubricants enable tableting and capsuling machines to run more efficiently, but these large fat molecules can prevent the product from dissolving in the digestive tract. Good for the machine – not necessarily good for animals. The animal may not absorb the product or receive its benefits. Large fatty acid additives in this category include stearic acid and its cousins, magnesium stearate and calcium stearate. These lubricants have similar negative properties – reduced dissolution and inhibited absorption.
