Thorne Research, Citrate Formula, Basic Nutrients III Without Copper and Iron, 180 Veggie Caps28 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

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.
Basic Nutrients III provides 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 III also contains a full scope of highly absorbed vitamin co-factors.

Interactions/Contraindications: Folinic acid and 5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate supplementation is not recommended concurrently with methotrexate cancer therapy, as they can interfere with methotrexate's anti-neoplastic activity; however, these folate sources have not been shown to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of methotrexate. An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Since I take individual nutrients and tailor them gently and precisely, I am not a fan of multi-min's. However, I bought this regularly for almost two years and they are very cleverly formulated. All the right coenzymated B-vits, trace elements (with the omission of Fe and Cu) and six caps as a full label dosage. This way you could increase or decrease dosage to individual needs. I usually prefere Thorne when I can afford it.
After tons of research this is one of the most effective, highest quality multi-vitamins I could find. Yes, it is expensive. It does suck to pay so much for a multi, but this brand does not mess around! They have intense quality control procedures. I appreciate very much that this formula does not contain copper or iron, both of which are not liver friendly in the long run. Bravo, Thorne.
