We are very happy to announce that Formula SF722 is back in stock!
Formula SF722 has been a best-selling Thorne Research product for over 20 years and we regret not having it available for you recently. This formula is in a softgel, which is manufactured for us by a contract manufacturer that also makes other softgel products for us. Softgel manufacturing requires unique equipment and expertise, which is why there are only four softgel manufacturers in all of North America. While preparing to manufacture a batch of SF722 three months ago, quality control testing revealed the presence of pesticide residues. This was investigated and it was found that the olive oil that was to be used in the product was the culprit. The olive oil was re-sourced, the product was put back into the production schedule, it was manufactured, re-tested, and we are very pleased to have Formula SF722 available again.
undecylenic acid - potent fatty acid support of healthy gut and vaginal flora*
Optimal gastrointestinal tract functioning is vital to the absorption of nutrients, elimination of waste, and proper immune function.* Many health-care practitioners consider gut function and especially good gut ecology – maintaining a healthy balance of gut flora, the microorganisms that normally live in the digestive tract – to be a key component to overall health.* Many situations can contribute to an imbalance in the microbial flora of the digestive tract, including an unhealthy diet, inadequate digestive enzymes, oral contraceptives, and the use of various prescription and OTC drugs. Increasing recognition is also being given in women's health to the relationship between gut flora and vaginal flora; i.e., a healthy balance of gut flora has corresponding benefit to the vaginal flora.*
Fatty acids have been used for centuries to help maintain a healthy balance of the microorganisms that normally live in the gastrointestinal tract.* In the last 50 years, fatty acids have demonstrated effectiveness in supporting a healthy gut flora in a number of studies.*
Undecylenic acid (10-undecenoic acid) is an eleven-carbon, mono-unsaturated fatty acid occurring naturally in the body's perspiration. While several fatty acids have beneficial effects on the flora that naturally inhabit the gastrointestinal tract, undecylenic acid is the most potent.*
A Thorne Research innovation, Formula SF722 contains undecylenic acid in a base of pure, extra-virgin olive oil. Formula SF722 aids in the establishment of healthy gut and vaginal flora and has been one of Thorne Research's best-selling products for over two decades.*
