Thorne Research Basic Nutrients III without Copper and Iron -- 180 Vegetarian Capsules

Citrate Formula. Dietary Supplement. Basic Nutrients III is a comprehensive multi-vitamin-mineral product that provides calcium magnesium and potassium as citrate mineral chelates. Besides providing a well-absorbed chelate citric acid has potential health benefits of its own.* As an important Kreb's cycle intermediate (also called the citric acid cycle and important for energy production) citric acid is essential for metabolism in all living organisms.* Citric acid has been shown to inhibit precipitation of calcium oxalate and phosphate in the urine.* Since magnesium calcium and potassium also have that potential this combination in one supplement provides added benefit.

"I use almost exclusively Thorne products & this is a great supplement. It is free of additives. Vitacost & Pure Formulas are the best place to buy it."

"I can't have any supplemental copper, and it's hard to find multi's without it, but this one is copper-free. It also has all the good forms of vitamins (e.g. P5P not just B6, and methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin rather than cyanocobalamin) so I tolerate it GREAT! It also has good amounts of the minerals including manganese and molybdenum. It's nice that you can take fewer than the whole dose, e.g. I take 3 a day rather than 6 capsules, so it lasts longer and I can get the dose that feels right for me."
