Thorne is one of Pharmaca’s beloved professional brands of supplements. Why do we love them? For one, their products are made with the highest quality ingredients. They’ve invested in comprehensive testing, created a clean manufacturing process and they’re dedicated to protecting the environment. Their team of medical professionals, researchers and engineers lead with science, thoughtfully refining every product and process.
Here’s more about their dedication to quality.
Thorne cares deeply about where their ingredients come from. They partner only with suppliers whose practices emphasize quality, science and responsibility. Better ingredients mean better potency, absorption and digestibility—and ultimately better health.
Ingredients you’ll never find in Thorne products? Artificial sweeteners and colors, banned substances, preservatives, allergens and stearates.
Sourcing and testing
When sourcing ingredients, Thorne ensures that they consider all of the following to ensure they are producing supplements that exceed expectations. That entails consideration of allergens, ingredient origin, bioavailability, clinical research and stability.
Before products hit Pharmaca shelves, Thorne ensure that more than 760 ingredients used in their products are free of heavy metals, pesticide residues, residual solvents, allergens, microorganisms and benzopyrene. They do this via two state-of-the-art, in-house laboratories that them us to conduct four rounds of testing, while most competitors test only once or twice. Thorne also has a sterling record of compliance with Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) set by the US Food and Drug Administration.
A focus on sustainability
The team at Thorne believes the environment should never be compromised for the sake of business gain—and that protecting the environment and its most valuable resources goes hand in hand with their quality standards.
That means that if a botanical ingredient is becoming endangered or they find that over-sourcing is diminishing the quality of existing supplies, then they will discontinue its use and utilize a different botanical raw their standards.
