Thorne launches five new at home tests including vitamin D, testosterone
Practitioner channel specialist Thorne has again expanded the consumer analytical end of its business with the launch of five new at home health tests.

The new tests figure into the company’s personalized nutrition strategy. According to Thorne, the tests measure individual biomarkers, uncover health insights, which are converted into a customized plan for what to eat, how to exercise, and whether to add nutritional supplements to improve health outcomes.

The new tests include five that Thorne had previously launched​, which included a test for heavy metals exposure. Thorne said the new tests came from feedback it garnered from its network of 35,000 practitioners who sell its dietary supplements.

The new tests are:

  • Vitamin D​ is recommended for individuals susceptible to low levels of D, like those who do not get daily sun exposure, follow a vegan diet, have issues with small intestine absorption or kidney function, or are overweight, obese, or elderly.
  • Heart Health​ is recommended for individuals who are physically inactive, have high cholesterol or diabetes (or a family history of either), are overweight, smoke cigarettes or e-cigarettes, or are a male older than 45 or a female older than 55.
  • Weight Management ​is recommended for individuals who experience persistent stress, don’t feel rested after sleep, feel sluggish or fatigued, have frequent sugar cravings, or have difficulty controlling their weight.
  • Testosterone​ is recommended for individuals who experience unfavorable changes in their body composition, erectile dysfunction or a loss of libido, chronic fatigue, mood swings, or are experiencing abnormal hair growth or loss, or are a female of childbearing age with fertility concerns.
  • Menopause​ is recommended for any woman between 45 and 55 years old, women experiencing menopause symptoms, postmenopausal women interested in evaluating hormone levels, or younger women interested in fertility.
