“The best sources of vitamins and minerals are found in whole foods.”
—Dr. Royal Lee

Selecting a Quality Supplement

Americans are overfed and undernourished. As a nation, we tend to eat poor-quality foods that have been largely stripped of nutrients. We don’t consume enough fresh fruits and vegetables. Many of us get our grains from instant rice, refined wheat breads, pastas, and cereal. We eat a tremendous amount of prepackaged meals and fast food restaurants are on every corner. How can this not affect the way our bodies work?
 

There Is Good News

Given proper nutrition, the human body is amazingly resilient. Eating a healthy diet is essential for maintaining good health, but it can be difficult in our fast-paced culture. Nutritional supplements with whole food and other ingredients can help fill the gaps of a less than perfect diet.

There are so many different kinds of supplements on the market that choosing a supplement can be confusing. A trained health care professional can help you select the best supplement for your unique needs.
 

Seasons on the Farm

Where do the ingredients come from?

As in any recipe, the quality of ingredients affects the quality of the final product. Manufacturers who grow their own whole food ingredients have control over them, which is why Standard Process owns a certified organic farm. We grow many of the crops for our whole food ingredients there, but for items we can't grow, we have an extensive, rigorous system of supplier auditing and validation.

When are ingredients from the farm processed?


Once harvested, food begins to lose nutrients. Because delays in processing can lead to a loss of phytonutrients, we process our crops immediately, often the same day they’re harvested. Our manufacturing process is designed to minimize the loss of vital nutrients within each ingredient. As always, our goal is to provide the best quality ingredients for our supplements.
