Thorne Research is one of the industries leading manufacturers of pharmaceutical grade supplements, with an extensive product line and a quality line of specially-formulated products that aren’t found anywhere else. They are a NSF cGMP facility, and maintain some of the most rigid quality assurance practices within the country. As opposed to many supplement manufacturers, Thorne Research doesn’t simply abide by FDA regulations; they help define them, and push to increase their stringency on a regular basis.
Thorne Research has also partnered with such health authorities as The Mayo Clinic to develop clinical trials meant to help provide useful data on the effectiveness of supplements in addressing modern health concerns. For more in depth look at the history of Thorne Research, check out the article Pharmaceutical Grade Supplements, which discusses their company a bit more in depth. Simply put, this company is one that pushes product quality to a new level, and has seen a huge market response due to their dedication. You will be hard pressed to find another manufacturer putting out such a high quality product, while offering such a robust variety within their product line.

Personally, I am a huge fan of Thorne Research for several reasons including their manufacturing practices in general, their unique product line, but also their product availability and affordability. Thorne Research offers direct to consumer sales from their website, so you don’t have to mess with any third party should you have questions, issues, or concerns with your order. This is just something that isn’t seen very often, and is a welcomed change of pace. As far as availability, Thorne Research represents one of the few doctor-trusted pharmaceutical grade supplement brands that is often found in health food stores, as well as some chain retailers.
My first experience with Thorne Research was with their product called Undecyn—a calcium Undecylenate & Berberine HCL blend to help with a SIBO issue I was having. As opposed to many other anti-fungal products, this product doesn’t create the unpleasant Herxheimer reaction experience during die-off. Rather, Thorne Research has formulated this product to ‘trick’ the bad bacteria into releasing their grasp, allowing them to be eliminated from the body naturally. I would recommend Thorne Research products to anyone, and continue to use them myself.
