“Quality from Seed to Supplement”
From Standard Process:
Since 1929, Standard Process has been the visionary leader in whole food nutrient solutions. We apply systems thinking to holistic nutrition that empowers practitioners to transform lives. Dedicated to the whole food philosophy of our founder, Dr. Royal Lee, our goal is to carry on his mission to provide nutrients for the body that are as close as possible to how they are found in nature.
Our products include foods that are prepared in a way that safeguards their nutritional value. The majority of these ingredients is grown locally on our certified organic farm and may require chopping, dicing, juicing, and/or drying for use in our products. The resulting whole food ingredients are then added to a formula that may include whole food extracts, animal tissue extracts and concentrates, botanicals, whole food isolates, and synthetic ingredients. These highly complex combinations contain a variety of elements designed to trigger trophic effects that support the body’s healthy balance and wellness.*
Standard Process oversees the manufacturing process from the moment a seed is planted until the finished product is packaged and shipped to your door. From growing organic corps on their company-owned farm to utilizing a sate-of-the-art manufacturing facility, we ensure that our products exceed expectations of efficacy, potency and quality.
By controlling every facet of the manufacturing process, Standard Process can ensure that nutrients are preserved at every state for the highest quality supplements.
After Harvest crops are processed immediately to preserve their nutrients. All of the plant materials are chopped and either dried or juiced and then dried. The juice is pressed from plants and separated from the pulp, leaving a concentrated product containing both fat- and water-soluble nutrients.
In the facility, selected USDA-certified animal tissues are ground then subjected to a multistep separation process to make our Protomorphogen™ and Cytosol™ extracts – unique in the industry – providing nutritional support at the cellular level. Low temperature, high-vacuum dryers preserve the nutrients in animal tissues and plants, which would otherwise be destroyed by increased heat.
During the final steps natural building ingredients, such as honey, are used for tableting. No artificial flavorings are ever used. Precision tableting and capsuling machines allow for high volume product without sacrificing quality.
Standard Process has a quality assurance program which meets and exceeds the most stringent quality standards
- cGMPs (Current Good Manufacturing Practices), written specifically for the dietary supplement industry and regulated by the FDA, have been utilized at Standard Process for years.
- Degreed scientists conduct testing for quality and safety throughout the manufacturing process, from the farm to final products. On average, the product is tested six times before leaving the facility.
- Utilize analytical methods approved by the Association for Analytical Communities (AOAC) and the United States Pharmacopeia.
- Assays are performed on product batches to ensure nutrient content and that our label claims are met.
Science Meets Supplements
The Standard Process Research & Development Department, consisting of onsite degreed scientists, provides a solid scientific basis for the safe and effective use of these products.
This is a statement by the Dubois family of Standard Process:
Dr. Royal Lee, founder of Standard Process, believed that “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” We demonstrate our commitment to this philosophy through the formulation and production of our whole food supplements. From the time the seeds are planted until the products are shipped to your door, we are directly involved in the entire process. Every part of this process relies on our dedication to offering the safest, most effective, highest quality products.

We have certified organic farms that grow the most wholesome ingredients. By using exemplary quality control standards in our high tech manufacturing facility, we ensure that our time-proven formulas are consistently produced. Also, our newly constructed Research and Development facility is working to validate Dr. Lee’s whole food philosophy.
At Standard Process, they believe that education is key to helping people better understand why nutrition is so important to maintaining health. This has long been the philosophy of McVitamins.
Per Standard Process, they state:
Given proper nutrition, the human body has an amazing ability to heal itself. If properly fed and given the right nutrients, the human body is designed to repair itself. To do so, we need to eat a healthier diet, exercise, and take high-quality supplements made from whole foods. Whole food supplements supply our bodies with nutrients we are not getting from our diet, all the vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, and phytonutrients that foods possess in a way that nature intended, in a whole food form.
Only whole food supplements complete the nutritional gap
Whole food supplements are made by concentrating foods for use in supplements. When processed correctly, they supply a multitude of the plant’s components. Foods provide nutrients that work synergistically. They work together to provide you with optimal nutrition for good health
A word of advice: Not all whole food supplements are the same
Many whole food supplements available in today’s marketplace range in quality. Companies are riding the wave of supplement popularity rather than focusing on commitment and quality.
Remember when you are using a whole food supplement like those created at Standard Process you are getting a supplement that the body can absorb and use. Unlike laboratory supplements that you may absorb 1%, these supplements have all the co-factors that food has so that the body can use them.
