Dads are famous for not saying what they want for a birthday, a holiday, or Father’s Day. The usual mantra is, “It’s the thought that counts.” (If you didn’t know better, you’d think there was a secret “Dad Rulebook” that makes him say things like that.)

So you could get the dad a tie, but…naahhh.

Instead, why not take that idea, “It’s the thought that really does count” and run with it? How so, you ask? By giving the Dad in your life a Father’s Day gift that shows you are thinking of him in a way that really matters – that you are looking out for his health and wellness.

Exactly what that gift is will depend on the dad. Today, “dear old Dad” might have six-pack abs and a marathon time under four hours. Or he might be more into coaching the game rather than playing the game. Or his idea of working out might be finding a lost remote. But whether your special Dad is young or old, athlete, coach, or spectator, Thorne has supplements and at-home tests that are perfect for him.

Pick your favorite or favorites from the list below. Then, if you want, add a note that says you think he’s the best Dad around – and you want him to stay around for a long, long time.
