5-MTHF - Thorne - Active Folate for Mood, Heart Health and Fetal Development 5-MTHF - Thorne - Active Folate for Mood, Heart Health and Fetal Development
5-MTHF - Thorne - Active Folate for Mood, Heart Health and Fetal Development $19.95
Many individuals don't get sufficient 5-MTHF (L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate), the active form of folic acid, because they have intestinal or liver dysfunction, or because they are among the three out of five Americans whose genetic makeup makes it difficult to convert folic acid into active 5-MTHF.* A deficiency of folic acid has been linked to low-birth-weight infants and neural tube defects, which is why the Centers for Disease Control recommends folic acid supplementation for all women of childbearing age. Since 5-MTHF also contributes to the production of serotonin, melatonin, dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine, supplementation supports healthy mood.*Note: 1 mg of 5-MTHF is recommended for fetal support during pregnancy; the 15 mg option is recommended only when directed by a health-care practitioner.It is important for a woman of childbearing age to get enough folic acid – not just those women who are planning to become pregnant.* Because half of pregnancies are unplanned, any woman who could become pregnant should get enough folic acid every day. Folic acid intake is especially important before conception and during early pregnancy, since its biggest need is during the first trimester – when a woman might not even know she is pregnant. Supplementation with the active form of folic acid – 5-MTHF (L-5 Methyltetrahydrofolate)– is always preferable.Acting with vitamin B12, 5-MTHF functions as a methyl-group donor, thereby facilitating the conversion of the amino acid homocysteine to methionine.* An elevated homocysteine level is a risk factor for a number of undesirable health conditions. Methyl-group donation is vital to many biochemical conversion processes, including the synthesis of serotonin, melatonin, and DNA.* * These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

Adrenal Cortex - Thorne - Promotes Adrenal Health by Supporting the Stress Response with Bovine Adrenal Cortex $12.95
The hormones produced in the adrenal cortex are necessary for glucose metabolism, immune function, normal blood pressure, and more.* In today's "high-stress" world, lifestyle habits that deprive us of adequate rest and exercise, along with dietary habits fraught with caffeine and refined sugars, can, over time, take their toll on the adrenal glands. Extracts from adrenal cortex tissue can play a valuable role in supporting healthy adrenal glands – and help maintain immune function and promote an energetic feeling.* Glandular extracts also support healthy levels of cortisol.* Thorne's Adrenal Cortex provides extracts of adrenal cortex tissue for focused support of normal adrenal function.*What part does the adrenal cortex play in maintaining health? The adrenal cortex is responsible for producing a special group of hormones known as corticosteroids. These hormones are comprised of glucocorticoids, mineralocorticoids, and 17-ketosteroids, and are essential for important homeostatic processes throughout the body.* Glucocorticoids are necessary for glucose metabolism and immune function.* Mineralocorticoids help maintain healthy electrolyte balance and already normal blood pressure.* The 17-ketosteroids are associated with sex hormones produced by the adrenal glands. * These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

L-Glutamine - Thorne - Amino Acid that Supports Healthy Intestinal and Immune Function L-Glutamine - Thorne - Amino Acid that Supports Healthy Intestinal and Immune Function
L-Glutamine - Thorne - Amino Acid that Supports Healthy Intestinal and Immune Function $74.50
Thorne's L-Glutamine Powder is NSF Certified for Sport®. Evidence suggests supplemental L-glutamine benefits gastrointestinal health, supports wound healing, maintains immune health, and helps restore plasma glutamine levels depleted after periods of physical stress, such as prolonged exhaustive exercise.* L-glutamine is the most prevalent amino acid in the bloodstream. It is found in high concentration in the gastrointestinal tract, which is its greatest user. Various stress factors – such as trauma, infection, malnutrition, chemotherapy, injury, and high-level athletic training – can adversely affect absorption in the small intestine, leading to food allergies. In numerous animal studies, the addition of L-glutamine improved absorption, as well as the gut's immune function.* Skeletal muscles contain the greatest intracellular concentration of L-glutamine. But that concentration can be adversely affected by various insults, including injury, infection, chronic stress, malnutrition, and glucocorticoid use. Intense exercise lowers blood levels of glutamine, which can remain low if intense training is repeated without adequate recovery. Research indicates L-glutamine supplementation can offset these conditions.* Because an athlete needs to know that his or her supplements are trustworthy and compliant, every batch of an NSF Certified for Sport® product is tested for compliance with label claims and to ensure the absence of more than 200 substances banned by many major athletic organizations, including stimulants, narcotics, steroids, diuretics, beta-2 agonists, and masking agents. * These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
