Basic Nutrients III Details

A multi-vitamin/mineral supplement is more important than most people think. Because of the state of the current food supply and the difficulty of consuming five servings of vegetables and fruits daily, few individuals receive all the needed nutrients from food. Basic Nutrients III is a comprehensive multi-vitamin/mineral supplement that provides calcium, magnesium, and potassium as citrate mineral-chelates, and well-absorbed trace minerals, but contains no copper or iron. Many individuals don't need iron, including women who no longer menstruate and most men. Although copper is an essential cofactor for many enzymes, some individuals have developed copper toxicity due to disease processes or external exposure to copper.

A daily multi- could be considered "dietary insurance," a small price to pay to be certain you get all the essential nutrients daily, even if you don't eat right.* Even greater health benefits can be realized when a healthy diet is eaten in addition to taking a multi-.*

Basic Nutrients III is a comprehensive multi-vitamin/mineral supplement that provides two key minerals – calcium and magnesium – as citrate mineral-chelates. In addition to providing a well-absorbed chelate, citric acid has potential health benefits of its own.* As an important Krebs Cycle intermediate – the body's internal process for producing energy – citric acid is essential for metabolism.* Citric acid also inhibits precipitation of calcium oxalate and phosphate in the urine.*

Basic Nutrients III provides tissue-ready folate in the form of 5-MTHF for individuals with methylation issues or poor conversion of folate to its active form, as well as the active, tissue-ready forms of vitamins B2, B6, and B12. Chromium is provided as an optimally absorbed nicotinate glycinate chelate.* Basic Nutrients III also features trace minerals exclusively available from Thorne as picolinates.

INTERACTIONS/CONTRAINDICATIONS
Folinic acid and 5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate supplementation are 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.
