I am so excited to share with y'all today a few products from Thorne Research that I have found to be particularly helpful in my journey with Chronic Illness. Y'all know from other posts how strongly I feel that supplements are for the body, even if you are not fighting a chronic illness, but especially for those that are. I shared in the fall with my instagram community that I take over 225 supplements every single day as I believe that they are truly a key part in my fight for my health.
I don't take those supplements randomly though and without a lot of research or without the direction of my doctor. I also research a ton to make sure that I am taking high quality supplements. I don't want to use products that are not quality and just waste money. This is why I love Thorne products. One of the things that I love about Thorne Research, Inc. is that they do not make any products that contain Genetically Modified Organisms. Unfortunately (and what a lot of people don't realize) is that many supplements and vitamins are filled with GMO's and this can be detrimental in the body- especially when dealing with a chronic illness.
This is not a sponsored post, but I love the products by Thorne so much that I am excited to share about them and that I hope will be helpful to those that are exploring different supplements. Listed below are just five of the many helpful supplements that Thorne has available for those fighting and dealing with Chronic Illness:
I mentioned Biogest in my post, 10 Helpful and Affordable Lyme Disease supplements for the Gut last year, and this is definitely one of the products that I use on a daily basis. It is so important to have a digestive enzyme as part of each meal and after I tried nearly 50 different ones over the last several years I have been extremely pleased with Biogest. Biogest is a blend of HCI (hydrocloric acid), pepsin, pancreatin, and ox bile. This combination makes it helpful to promote the digestion of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. You can find Biogest under the "gastrointestinal products" by clicking HERE!
Thorne has lots of different detox supplements and products in their inventory so you can choose a product that is helpful to your specific Lyme symptoms and case. The general "basic detox nutrients" seen above is stated that it is "designed for individuals with environmental toxicity. It can be used within a cleansing program or as a stand-alone product for preventative use. It is a complete multi vitamin-mineral formulation with higher levels of nutrients commonly found to be deficient in those with chemical overload, as well as those nutrients and botanical that help the body handle the toxic load." You can read more about this product HERE.
Lots of Chronic Illness patients, Naturopath Doctors, OD's, Lymies and LLMDs swear by Glutathione. This for me is something that I am still really working to get into my system because I hear so many positive things about it. Do y'all take Glutathione? I know that many Lymies do this in IV format.
If you are not familiar with Glutathione, it is something that "occurs naturally in all human cells and is a co factor for dozens of enzymes involved in detoxification. As an antioxidant glutathione directly quenches several reactive oxygen species (free radicals). Numerous structures and functions in the body receive benefit from maintaining a normal level of glutathione, such as hepactic support, pulmonary health, immune function, bowel health, carbohydrate metabolism, cardiovascular health, cognitive health, and eye health. The liver is the body's largest reservoir for glutathione. A potent endogenous antioxidant, glutathione is essential for phase 1 and phase 2 liver detoxification."
As I mentioned above there are many different forms and ways to obtain glutathione and this Glutathione supplement by Thorne comes in capsule formula. You can find it under the detoxification products HERE.
Curcumin is one of the supplements that many supplements that is often recommended for Chronic Illness patients. Meriva is a Throne Research exclusive product and it curcumin bound to sunflower phospholiipds which is especially helpful for those who are sensitive patients like myself. My mom actually started taking this product first and was the one who suggested it to me. After researching it and discussing it with my doctor I was excited to add this supplement into my regime. If you are not familiar with Curcumin and its health benefits I definitely recommend that you research it and find out more about it. You can find this product on the Thorne website under detoxification products HERE.
PC (Phosphatidyle Choline) is an important component of all cell membranes and is an excellent source for liver support. "It protects liver cells from toxin-induced damage and promotes cholesterol metabolism and excretion from the body." Lots of Chronic Illness patients, Naturopath Doctors, OD's, Lymies and LLMDs swear by PC. This for me is something that I am still really working to get into my system because I hear so many positive things about it. Do y'all take PC? I know that many Chronic Illness patients do this in IV format. Have y'all tried this? I would love to know your thoughts!
