Basic Nutrients 2/Day
Keep your nutrition up – and your capsule count down – with Basic Nutrients 2/Day Certified for Sport®, a complete multi-vitamin and mineral formula in just two capsules per day.
Basic Nutrients 2/Day is a complete multi-vitamin/mineral formula that contains key nutrients for foundational support, including heart, brain, nerves, immune, bone, and skin health.*
A daily multi-vitamin/mineral supplement is more important than many people realize. Because it can be difficult to consume five daily servings of vegetables and fruits, few of us get all the nutrition we need from our diet. Basic Nutrients 2/Day uses the purest and most absorbable vitamins and minerals – without adding unnecessary additives and preservatives. It provides an excellent nutritional foundation to supplement a healthy diet, all in a convenient two-capsule-a-day protocol.
Health benefits of Basic Nutrients 2/Day include:
- Vitamin A to promote eye health, healthy skin, and immune function*
- Vitamins C and E and mixed tocopherols to provide antioxidant support for cellular protection*
- Vitamin D to promote strong bones and a healthy immune system*
- B vitamins to support a healthy heart, blood vessels, and nerves*
- Vitamins K1 and K2 to contribute to bone and blood vessel health*
- Zinc bisglycinate, a highly absorbable form of zinc, for immune function and skin health*
- Chromium to support a healthy blood sugar level*
- Plus several other well-absorbed, glycinate minerals
According to a survey published in JAMA Internal Medicine, 32 percent of U.S. adults take a multi-vitamin. The leading reason given was to improve overall health. Groups with a particular risk for nutrient deficiencies and who can benefit from a multi- include teenagers, athletes, the elderly, individuals on a restrictive diet, those who have a chronic disease, and individuals taking medications that cause nutrient deficiencies as a side effect.
A good multi-vitamin/mineral supplement could be considered "dietary insurance" to be certain all essential nutrients are consumed daily. Even greater health benefits can be realized when a healthy diet is combined with a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement.
Because an athlete needs to know that his or her supplements are trustworthy and compliant, every batch of an NSF Certified for Sport® product is tested for compliance with label claims and to ensure the absence of more than 200 substances banned by many major athletic organizations, including stimulants, narcotics, steroids, diuretics, beta-2 agonists, and masking agents.

Building the foundation for health
The keystone of every nutritional product line is a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement. At Thorne, we believe this is the starting point for every individual’s supplementation needs and that a multi-vitamin/mineral product should contain all of the essential nutrients. We also believe that by using the purest, most absorbable raw materials – without adding any unnecessary additives and preservatives – every individual’s outcome will be optimized.
Key nutritional features:
- 2,000 IU of vitamin D3 per serving
- Amino acid-chelated minerals
- Mixed tocopherols
- 400 mcg of vitamin K (as K1 and K2) per serving
- Active form of folic acid – L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate
- Active, readily usable forms of vitamins B2, B6, & B12
Why everyone should take a multi-vitamin/mineral nutritional supplement
Due to the state of the current food supply and because very few Americans eat the recommended five daily servings of health-giving fruits and vegetables, nutrition experts agree that a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement should be taken daily. Even the Journal of the American Medical Association – not usually known as a supporter of nutritional supplements – agrees that everyone should be taking a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement (JAMA 2002;287:3127-3129).
An excellent multi-vitamin/mineral nutritional supplement is good “dietary insurance” and a small investment to make to ensure you are getting all the essential nutrients daily, particularly if you aren’t eating a balanced diet. Greater health benefits can be realized when patients are encouraged to eat a healthy diet in addition to taking a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement.
This product is contraindicated in an individual with a history of hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients.
Iodine may occasionally cause an allergic reaction in some individuals.
If pregnant, consult your health professional before using this product.
As vitamin K interferes with the effect of anticoagulant drugs (like Coumadin), the concurrent use of these agents should be avoided.
5-methyltetrahydrofolate supplementation is not recommended concurrently with methotrexate cancer therapy, as it can interfere with methotrexate's anti-neoplastic activity; however, this folate source has not been shown to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of methotrexate. An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.
