Why Whole Food Supplements?
As a nation, we eat poor-quality foods that have been stripped of nutrients. We do not consume enough fresh fruits and vegetables. Many of us get our whole grains from instant rice, refined wheat breads, pastas, and cereal. We eat a tremendous amount of prepackaged, pre-made meals. One-quarter of Americans eat at fast food restaurants each day. As a result of our diets, Americans are overfed and undernourished.
Poor American health is a result of our diets and environmental toxins, we are sick and undernourished. To combat the deficiencies in our diets, most Americans take a multivitamin. The problem is that most Americans are taking the wrong type of multivitamin, only whole food supplements complete the nutrition gap. To find out just how deficient you and your family may be, call Dr. Sigler. He will evaluate you and your family and make nutritional support recommendations based on your deficiencies.
The Key Is High-Quality Ingredients
Nutritional scientists are continually discovering what Standard Process has 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.
Standard Process 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 body. Ingredients are selected for their specific supportive effects in metabolism.
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.††These statements have not been evaluated by the Food & Drug Administration.
