Basic Nutrients I was one of the first two comprehensive multi-vitamin-mineral products offered by Thorne Research. Basic Nutrients I provides calcium, magnesium, and potassium as aspartate mineral chelates for optimized energy production along with a complete range of trace minerals, but contains no copper or iron.
There are individuals who do not need iron, including women who are no longer menstruating and most men. Individuals at low risk for an iron deficiency often do not need supplemental iron unless they have a chronic condition that renders them iron deficient. While copper is an essential cofactor for many enzymes in the body, some individuals have developed copper toxicity due to disease processes or external exposure to copper (for example, copper pipes). Iron and copper can both act as pro-oxidants (working the opposite way from antioxidants) in certain situations, so many individuals prefer having the option of a multiple-mineral formula that does not contain these two minerals.
Basic Nutrients I also contains a full scope of highly absorbed vitamin co-factors.
Take 3-6 capsules daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I have high copper and this was the only multivitamin that didn't have copper added. Easy to swallow capsules instead of tablets and no additives. Good mix of vitamins too.
This product was recommended to us by our naturopath as being of a very high quality.

This is one if the best multi-vit. I have ever been on. No added stuff to fill the tablet. I would strongly recommend to other people.

Very effective, quality and highly potent when taken on the recommended 6 capsules per day. Thorne Research is the best name for B vitamins due to their purity and co enzyme forms of B Vitamins used in their products. After trying many of the Thorne Basic Nutrients. Aspartate form without copper and zinc works best for me.

according to my doctor these are the best vitamins one could buy--so I am even ordering them from America (I live in Germany). One note though--when mailing to Germany, please advise your shipping deartment to attach the bill to the outside of the package, so customs will let the package through.
