Clinical Research

How we know our supplements work

At Thorne, being able to rely on the safety and efficacy of our nutritional supplement products is the motivating force behind our clinical trials program.

Our confidence that each product we formulate and manufacture works in the body comes from extensive clinical research and medical literature that substantiate the presence of each ingredient in each formula.

In addition to confirming the efficacy of our products, clinical research helps us better understand their efficacy. And it paves the way for new discoveries.

The ultimate goal of our research partnerships is to help us fulfill our mission of solving the biggest challenges in health and wellness.

More than 40 products in clinical trials around the world

At any given time, numerous Thorne nutritional supplement products are being tested in clinical trials taking place around the world. Our collaborations with independent researchers help us scientifically confirm the efficacy and safety of our products and explore new potential for them.

For example, a study in conjunction with Dr. Mark Houston of the Hypertension Institute tested LipoCardia®, a Thorne multi-ingredient supplement, and found it to be safe and effective for maintaining healthy lipid levels.*

We are also participating in a study with Mayo Clinic and the University of Minnesota Clinical and Translational Science Institute concerning the effect of Nicotinamide Riboside on brain NAD+ in football players.
