THORNE RESEARCH – Al’s Formula
Al’s Formula contains saw palmetto extract, an extra amount of zinc, and the amino acids alanine, glycine, and glutamic acid for nutritional support of the prostate.* Hawthorn extract is included to promote healthy cardiovascular function.* Like all Thorne multi-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).
Does a man need a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement? Because of the state of the food supply and the difficulty of getting five daily servings of fruits and vegetables, the answer is a resounding “Yes”. The well-respected Journal of the American Medical Association has stated that everyone should take a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement. Al’s Formula, named after one of Thorne’s founders, supports the metabolic functions of a mature man.* It contains the vitamins and minerals in Thorne’s other multi- formulas, plus specific ingredients that provide support for prostate health and cardiovascular function.* Al’s Formula does not contain iron, because iron is generally not necessary and can be harmful for some men.
