Thorne Science Team Experts Featured at The International Conference on the Science of Botanicals 2019 in April

April 1, 2019

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 1, 2019--Two members of Thorne’s team of highly respected scientists and experts will be among the featured experts at the International Conference on the Science of Botanicals 2019 in Oxford, Mississippi, on April 8-11. The annual meeting, held at the National Center for Natural Products Research (NCNPR) at the University of Mississippi, is largely regarded as one of the top gatherings of researchers, thought leaders, and others contributing to the quality of science in herbal medicine.

The conference is held to allow professionals of botanical science and medicine to share cutting-edge data related to safety, quality, and efficacy. The event is attended by leading scientists and executives from the nutraceutical industry and related sectors.

One of the most important topics in recent years at the annual conference has been botanical identity. Thorne Senior Scientist Tyler Daniels will address this important topic as part of an expert panel chaired by scientists from the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) and the British Colombia Institute of Technology (BCIT). Daniels will serve as the expert on the evolving field of DNA testing in the validation of plant identity. As botanical medicine grows increasingly popular around the world, the development of precise techniques to assure that a stated ingredient is correct and accurate is critical. Adulteration and fraud, which are not uncommon with some very popular herbs, can be very dangerous to consumers.

In addition, Thorne Director of Sports Science Joel Tororo will participate in a panel discussion on the genesis, impact and growth of sports nutrition under the FDA’s Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act.

Thorne is highly committed to using the best available science in its mission to become the world’s leader in health and wellness, by helping consumers take control of their health. That commitment starts with the assurance of using the most effective, validated, and safest raw materials.
