Thione International Inc., was founded in 1995 by antioxidant expert
Dr. Theodore Hersh. Drawing upon 30 years of clinical and research
experience specializing in gastroenterology, Dr. Hersh replicated
the antioxidant cycle found within the body and incorporated it
as a defense against free radicals - which he called the Thione
The basis for the Complex is a group of specific synergistic antioxidants,
that when working together fight against the harmful affects of
free radicals often brought about by everyday stresses such as excess
sun exposure, smoking, environmental pollutants and alcohol consumption,
Realizing that not one product on the consumer or healthcare market
contained this critical combination of antioxidants, Dr. Hersh and
his team spent the first four years of the company's inception developing
patents, creating various formulations and applications for the
Complex as well as conducting research.
It was through this time and effort that Thione's true mission
surfaced - to develop preventative and therapeutic healthcare and
consumer products to protect against many of the world's most devastating
diseases, including cancer and heart disease. Located in Atlanta,
Georgia, the theories that rest at Thione's core are constantly
being tested and improved.
Both the Thione Complex and Thione International, Inc. rest
on one signature belief:
- That it is specific antioxidants working synergistically
(not alone) to improve the body's ability to protect and repair
itself from the ravages of free radicals.
Currently the company holds 6 patents on various applications
of the Complex and various others under development. All Thione products
are doctor developed.
