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.

Why should everyone take a multiple vitamin-mineral supplement?*
Nutrition experts agree that, due to the state of the current food supply and because few Americans eat the recommended five servings daily of health-giving fruits and vegetables, a multiple vitamin-mineral formulation should be taken daily. Even the Journal of the American Medical Association, not known as a supporter of dietary supplements, has finally agreed that everyone should take a multi. A multi could be considered "dietary insurance," a small price to pay to be sure you get all the essential nutrients daily, even if you don't eat right. Even greater health benefits can be realized if you eat a healthy diet in addition to taking a multi.*

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 Research 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).*

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

This product is contraindicated in an individual with a history of hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients.

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

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-methyltetrahydrofolate supplementation is not recommended concurrent 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.

Vitamin C can cause diarrhea in some individuals in large doses, which can vary from person to person and resolves when the amount is reduced.

Gas, bloating, or diarrhea may occur in some individuals taking magnesium supplements. This can occur at varying amounts depending on the individual and resolves when the amount is reduced.
