Standard Process


Quality, Whole Food Nutrition Begins with Standard Process Inc.

Nutritional scientists are continually discovering what we at Standard Process have taught and practiced since 1929: Micronutrients, both known and unknown, found only in whole foods are more essential to health than selected vitamins and minerals taken away from their complete food matrix.

Our product formulas contain unique combinations of whole foods (whole plants, animal tissue extracts and concentrates, and botanicals), which contain essential vitamins, phytonutrients, and minerals to provide optimal health for your patients. Ingredients are selected for their specific supportive effects in metabolism.

Whole Plants
Plants like pea vine, beets, buckwheat, and alfalfa provide vitamins and phytonutrients.

Animal Tissue Extracts and Concentrates
The animal tissues in our products (Protomorphogen™ and Cytosol™ brand extracts and whole desiccates) provide many essential nutritional compounds, including amino acid and enzyme complexes and essential fatty acids to support the corresponding tissues in humans.

Botanicals provide important factors that contribute additional organ and glandular support by complementing the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and tissue concentrates found in foods. For example, silymarin found in Silybum marianum has been shown to provide significant hepatic protection and support. 

For 75 years, Standard Process has provided health care professionals with high-quality, nutritional whole food supplements. Our extensive collection of products supports the healthy functioning of the endocrine, cardiovascular, digestive, hepatic, respiratory, skeletal, renal, and other physiological systems.

We continually formulate new, synergistic whole food nutritional products to further address patient needs. In 2001, we partnered with MediHerb® to provide health care professionals with superior herbal products. In 2002, we added the Standard Process Veterinary Formulas™ to our expanding list of quality nutritional products. These products are specifically designed to provide optimal nutritional support for dogs and cats.

In order to produce high-quality supplements, our products undergo a unique process. To ensure the utmost quality, many of our raw materials are grown organically on company-owned farmland and then processed utilizing exclusive manufacturing techniques. We monitor our raw materials throughout the entire manufacturing process using continuous quality control testing.

What Makes Standard Process Products Unique. “The best sources of vitamins and minerals are found in whole foods.” – Dr. Lee.

Standard Process has been dedicated to the field of nutritional supplements since 1929. The company is committed to a whole food philosophy first introduced by their founder, Dr. Royal Lee. Dr. Lee challenged common scientific beliefs by choosing a holistic approach of providing nutrients through whole foods. 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. Dr. Lee believed that when nutrients remain intact and are not split from their natural associated synergists -known and unknown- bioactivity is markedly enhanced over isolated nutrients. Following this philosophy, small amounts of whole food concentrates will offer enhanced nutritional support, compared to an isolated or fractionated vitamin. Standard Process products are built upon this holistic paradigm.

In addition, Standard Process was built on a unique belief that the quality of a whole food supplement is dependent on the quality of the manufacturing process. These beliefs are at the center of everything they do at Standard Process and they are the reason we can continue to offer the best in balanced nutrition and healthy living, year after year.

Through the unique combination of whole foods, animal tissue extracts and concentrates, and botanicals, every Standard Process products is designed to provide specific nutritional support.
