Patient Direct is an online ordering platform that offers a more convenient way for patients to access recommended products. The Metro Chiropractic staff will provide you with the code to access the Standard Process platform.



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.


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.


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.



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.


*Southern Botanical follows traditional herbal wisdom and the natural intelligence of plants. Their herbal concentrates focus on supporting whole systems of the body, for example, the circulatory or respiratory system.

Standardized herbal extracts isolate certain chemicals in plants, leaving out the other beneficial properties. The process used to make standardized herbal extracts is a refining process that isolates certain studied chemicals in the herb, then processes the whole plant to get more of this, instead of using the part which is richest in the desired property that also has complementary components. The berry of a certain herb may have the most potent effects on the heart, but to make an standardized extract, the leaves and stems will also be used for their smaller amounts of it, although they may have non-beneficial components too. The result is more of the targeted chemical component, but without the synergistic and complementary factors which haven't been tested, studied or isolated, and resulting in a more 'phyto-pharmaceutical' compound. We prefer the wholistic method.

When you include the entire phytonutrient-rich part of the plant instead of just taking out certain chemicals, you keep the natural balance. This is a safer way to make herbal products because modern science still does not fully understand how individual chemicals in plants work in the body. If you isolate a specific chemical that is safe in its natural form, it can have a dangerous effect when not balanced by other chemicals in the plant. This gives the impression certain plants are not safe, when it's the isolated extract that is out of balance.

Standardized herbal extracts make more sense for controlled medical studies than as herbal remedies. When used as herbal remedies, standardized herbal extracts are chemically unbalanced and similar to pharmaceutical drugs. The whole parts of organic herbs we use for our formulas have active ingredients found in standardized extracts along with all the other beneficial properties in the plant.
