When it comes to providing patient care, we know you don't settle for anything less than excellence. Thorne shares your commitment to excellence in patient care. Therefore, we offer you dietary supplements that contain the highest quality ingredients available, and we manufacture them using stringent pharmaceutical-grade processes.
As you are well aware, every supplement company refers to their quality control, purity of ingredients, and GMP's. But the truth of the matter is this: when you need to have faith in a company, Thorne is the only choice, and has been for more than 25 years for the nation's leading practitioners. Our customers have faith in us and deeply trust Thorne's integrity and quality.
Consider the following:
On February 5, 2008, an Associated Press (AP) wire story highlighted "the lack thereof" in the quality control of major pharmaceutical companies, citing contamination of finished pharmaceuticals by everything from paint chips to metal particles. In March 2005, one international pharmaceutical company refused to recall an improperly manufactured drug, causing U.S. marshals to raid one of its plants – the largest adulterated drug seizure in FDA history.
These are problems in the highly regulated pharmaceutical industry, and in international companies that are regularly inspected by trained FDA inspectors. Yet the AP wire story clearly demonstrates that even a highly regulated industry can still have numerous quality control problems once the inspector walks out the door. Who do you trust when your faith in an industry is shaken?
A peanut processing company defies the FDA and covers up salmonella contamination for several years before they are closed down. Who do you trust?
Thorne is committed to putting the health and well-being of your patients first – before anything else. We know that only by doing so will we become your trusted partner in providing the highest quality care possible.
