The keystone of every nutritional product line is a multiple vitamin-mineral supplement. At Thorne, we believe this is the starting point for every individual's supplementation needs and that these products should contain all the essential nutrients. We also believe that by using the purest, most bioavailable raw materials – those without unnecessary additives and preservatives – every individual's outcome will be optimized.

Al's Formula is a comprehensive multiple vitamin-mineral formula designed to support the metabolic functions of the mature man.* Al's Formula contains saw palmetto extract, extra zinc, and the amino acids alanine, glycine, and glutamic acid for nutritional support of the prostate.*

Pure betaine and hawthorne extract are included to promote cardiovascular function.* Al's Formula does not contain iron, as iron is generally not necessary and potentially harmful for some older men.

Like all Thorne multiple vitamin-mineral supplements, Al's Formula contains the active forms of vitamin B2 (riboflavin 5'-phosphate), vitamin B6 (pyridoxal 5'-phosphate), vitamin B12 (adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin), and folic acid (folinic acid and L-5-MTHF).

Suggested Use

Take 4-8 capsules daily or as recommended by a health-care practitioner.

ALLERGY WARNING: Iodine may occasionally cause an allergic reaction in some individuals.

EXCIPIENT FREE: This product does not contain wheat, gluten, corn, yeast, soy, egg, dairy products, or artificial colors, sweeteners, or flavors. This product also does not contain lactose, palmitic acid, or magnesium, calcium, or vegetable stearates.

PREGNANCY WARNING: If pregnant, consult your health-care practitioner before using this product.

INTERACTIONS/CONTRAINDICATIONS: As Vitamin K interferes with the effect of anticoagulant drugs (like Coumadin), the concurrent use of these agents should be avoided.

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.
