OUR SUPPLEMENT LINE

 

STANDARD PROCESS

Our Whole Food Philosophy

Since 1929, Standard Process has been dedicated to the field of nutritional supplements and the whole food philosophy introduced by Dr. Royal Lee. His goal was to provide nutrients as they are found in nature – in a whole food state where he believed their natural potency and efficacy would be realized. Based on this philosophy, we start with whole foods – like peas, radishes, and beets. Then, we prepare these ingredients in a way that safeguards their nutritional value. A whole food supplement is a complex formula that includes whole food-based plant ingredients, plant and animal extracts, desiccates, or synthetic ingredients as required to create the best dietary supplement for each health indication.

WHAT EXACTLY IS A WHOLE FOOD SUPPLEMENT?

Whole food-based supplements generally include foods that are prepared in a way that safeguards their nutritional value. The great majority of these ingredients are grown locally on our certified organic farm, including alfalfa, barley grass, beets, Brussels sprouts, buckwheat, kale, kidney beans, oats, peavine, and Spanish black radish. This allows us to control the quality of these ingredients from seed to supplement. Individual components may require chopping, dicing, juicing, and/or drying.

 

INGREDIENTS FORMULATED FOR OPTIMAL HEALTH

A diet rich in a variety of complex nutrients is key to optimal health. The ingredient combinations found in Standard Process nutritional supplements provide a spectrum of nutrients to support multiple organs and systems in the body.

 

DELIVERING THE COMPLEX NUTRIENT CONTENT

To account for real-world variability inherent when safeguarding the nutritional integrity of our ingredients, we apply a holistic approach to how we farm, manufacture, and quality-assure our products. This comprehensive approach ensures that our nutritional supplements deliver their complex nutrients as nature intended.

INGREDIENT SOURCING

A great majority of all raw plant ingredients that go into our products come from the Standard Process certified-organic farm. For the foods we don’t grow, we actively source the best-quality nutritional ingredients from around the world. Our health-supporting whole food animal tissues are derived from bovine, ovine, and porcine sources and are obtained exclusively from USDA-certified facilities in the United States. Tissues may also be purchased from Argentina and New Zealand with appropriate health certificates.
