Standard Process whole food nutritional supplements
“One of the biggest mistakes that medical science has ever made is to provide drugs to people who are starving. A starving man doesn’t need drugs. He needs food. And if he gets food he recovers. If he gets drugs, he doesn’t.” –Dr. Royal Lee
Only whole food nutritional supplements complete the nutrition gap
Whole food supplements are made by concentrating foods. When concentrated correctly, the foods supply a multitude of nutrients. These nutrients work synergistically, or together, to provide you with optimal nutrition for good health.
Whole food supplements do not contain anything chemical or synthetic, so they are digested, absorbed, and utilized extremely efficiently within the body. By giving the correct balance of whole food supplements, complete with their synergistic components including minerals, co-factors, enzymes, organic materials, and plant and animal constituents, individuals experiencing imbalance or disease can correct the effects of deficiency and overcome many acute, chronic and degenerative conditions. They are generally very safe for everyone, including children, elderly, pregnant and breast feeding women, and do not interact with medications or produce side effects.
Research suggests that single vitamins, taken out of the food complex, may not be as effective in promoting health as eating the whole food. Each whole food ingredient offers its nutrients, plus synergistic co-factors, to provide you with the strongest, natural, and most well balanced nutritional supplement.
Animal tissues provide nutrients and support to stimulate the corresponding tissues in humans, enhancing natural cell and tissue repair.
Phytonutrients are the important nutrients found in plants that are necessary to maintain a healthy body.
These products are derived from plants grown on their farm in soil free of pesticides and chemicals. The machinery to process these products is made of glass and stainless steel only. The temperature used in processing the harvested plants is never raised above 90 degrees Fahrenheit so that the active ingredients are not cooked and remain active and alive.

Where do the nutrients in your supplements come from?
Are they truly doing a good job of replacing the nutrients missing from your diet? Look at the ingredient list, just like any other food label, you should be able to recognize and pronounce most of the ingredients.
When choosing a supplement, quality is more important than quantity.
I do not use or recommend over the counter supplements. They are generally engineered chemical fractions of a vitamin structure reproduced in a laboratory. A small amount of a whole food vitamin is more beneficial to the human body than a large dose of its manmade counterpart. Supplements comprised solely of single manmade vitamins supply only a fraction of the whole vitamin complex, creating a shortage of many crucial nutrients. This imbalance can actually lead to health issues.
