Why Is Thorne Vet So
At Thorne we deeply value the importance of the Purity–Healing Relationship.
We believe that once you comprehend this Purity-Healing link, you will significantly
alter the criteria by which you choose products that support your ability
to heal animals.
To reduce costs and accelerate the speed at which
manufacturers can run their pill and tablet making machines,
98% of all manufacturers use binders, lubricants,
coatings, additives and other excipients that can
compromise the effectiveness of ingredient delivery. Most
companies do this because they fail to understand the Purity-Healing Relationship.
It is the deep understanding of how a product’s purity level affects its efficacy that has, for over 25 years, driven Thorne on its quest to develop manufacturing methods and healthful ingredients that produce the highest quality, most effective, bioavailable and hypoallergenic dietary supplements in
Our goal at Thorne Vet is to not only develop a
production process that allows you to receive the
purest products in the market, but also to
give you the knowledge to understand why purity
makes such an important impact on your ability to
The Short Course
We know you are time-challenged. Therefore, the fastest
way we can help you get a quick understanding of the
Purity-Healing Relationship is to simply look at a short list
of what we at Thorne Vet consider to be ingredients that can negatively impact
purity and thus the efficacy of a product.
If you go to your own animal health product shelf right now, you will be surprised to find
that 98 percent of the products you are currently giving your animals contain the
compromising ingredients listed below.
Extensive research and Thorne’s expertise and experience have led us to conclude that these components can negatively affect purity and efficacy. (You will find these same compromising ingredients in the human supplements you are taking.) Because we believe these lubricants, binders, and additives compromise purity, these are ingredients you will never ever see in a Thorne Vet product.
As you read the list below, ask yourself, “Will these lubricants and additives help my animals heal?”
A Word from Thorne’s Director of
Quality Control: Alan Butcher
“I have dedicated my life to helping the medical communities recognize that to create the highest level of healing possible,
products must be consumed in their purest form. In fact, I wrote my Doctorate Thesis on this very topic.
It is my opinion that the majority of manufacturers on the
market are completely ignorant of this Purity-Healing Relationship or if they are aware of this link, they continue to sell products with harmful
lubricants, fillers and other ingredients because they put their financial gain over your animals’ health. You have our assurance this will never
happen at Thorne Vet. We will never compromise our commitment to purity.”

Quality Ingredients: A Higher Standard
To produce our pure, hypoallergenic encapsulated products, Thorne uses only the purest and finest ingredients available. In some cases, we’ve developed methods to create our own sources of certain ingredients to ensure their quality.
As the pioneering force behind the vitamin industry’s move from tablets to capsules, Thorne discovered early on just how perfectly a capsule provides for the rapid dissolution and unimpeded absorption of our formulas in the animal’s body.
