What exactly are Whole Food Supplements?
Dr. Royal Lee started Standard Process in 1929 with the goal of creating a supplementation process that allowed people to take in the nutritional benefit of whole foods in a convenient supplement. Today, foods such as radishes, beets, barley grass, alfalfa, Brussels sprouts, kale, kidney beans, oats, (and much more) are grown right at the Standard Process organic farm. Called holistic engineering, these foods are cooked, chopped, juiced, diced, or dried and combined (as needed) with plant and animal extracts (such as fish oil) to create the best complex nutrients and whole food supplements available exactly as nature intended.Why can't I get these at the store?
Great Question! Standard Process whole food supplements are only available through qualified healthcare practitioners for an excellent reason: The average person wouldn't know what to take and receive a maximum health benefit. There are over 160 different supplements available, and a knowledgeable practitioner has to understand your chemical needs and prescribe the proper combination of supplements to take advantage of a natural remedy. For example, let's say you suffer from severe or chronic arthritis
. There are six different whole food supplements (out of 160) that have shown to restore normal cell function and reduce inflammation.
- Ligaplex II
supports joints, muscles, and connective tissues, especially long-term. The ingredients are similar to those in Ligaplex I, but with the emphasis on helping long-standing problems, such as arthritis, chronic joint conditions, back problems, bulging disks, and chronic muscle pain or inflammation.
- Calcifood. Bones need much more than just calcium. They need many minerals, proteins, amino acids, and enzymes. Calcifood provides all of these nutritional components. It is made from veal bone that was cold processed to retain all the biologically relevant ingredients. Calcifood is used in osteoporosis, osteopenia, broken bones, and dental problems.
is a veal bone extract which contains concentrated components of cell chromosomes. It helps the function of the bone-building cells (osteoblasts) and helps rebuild bone tissue. It promotes the health of bones, teeth, joints, and connective tissues.
- Cataplex C
is the natural form of vitamin C that contains bioflavonoids (rutin, hesperidin, and hundreds of others), enzymes that promote vascular strength and improve oxygen concentration in the blood (tyrosinase), other factors and cofactors, and ascorbic acid. Cataplex C is a combination of foods that are naturally high in vitamin C complex. It is indicated for better immune system function, as an anti-oxidant, for infectious diseases, improved healing from wounds, trauma, surgery, and stress, to improve capillary function, inflammation, and congestion, and to strengthen the adrenal glands.
- Tuna Omega Oil
is an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids and other beneficial fatty substances that naturally occur in fish oil. It improves circulation and the health of the immune system, joints, and skin. It is useful in inflammation conditions of any kind.
Nutrition Response Testing
is a noninvasive procedure that allows us to "see" into the chemical interactions of your body and find imbalances that can be corrected with diet modifications and supplementation. Additionally, once your chemical imbalance restores to a healthier level, your prescription will change. This is why you can only get Standard Process supplements from a health care practitioner.
