Animal Tissues and Standard Process Product Quality & Safety

Thursday, July 6, 2023 10:36 AM

We use Standard Process as our main brand of products when it comes to healing because they are whole food supplements. Food is what repairs and supports a healthy body.

I have posted in a previous post the difference between a whole food supplement and a synthetic one. There is a use for synthetic but when it comes to long term and steady repair a whole food supplement is what does the job.

Because Standard Process uses whole foods to make their supplements, it follows that some of their supplement will contain some animal organ as a replacement part for a dysfunctional human organ. When supplementing your diet, organs are an important part.

In today’s environment, many animals are unhealthy therefore you do not find organs in a grocery store as a norm. Growing up we had plenty of organs available. I ate liver, kidney, heart, head cheese on a regular basis. I was lucky to grow up in a small village with farms all around and grew up eating farm food.

When Dr. Lee founded Standard Process in 1929, the first whole food supplement he introduced was Catalyn(R). Catalyn and many other Standard Process products contain animal tissues (organs, glands, or extracts thereof). Dr. Lee believed that, “The quality of whole food supplement is dependent on the quality of the manufacturing process.” This remains the foundation of Standard Process’ doctrine today, and it is applied to the animal tissues that are used in many Standard Process products.

Standard Process whole food supplements are manufactured in their facility in Palmyra, Wisconsin. The animal tissues that they use are supplied by U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) – inspected facilities and approved based on the laws and regulations of the USDA. They are derived from animals that were found sound and healthy and received pre- and post-mortem inspection. Standard Process products are labeled with the source species and name of each gland or organ contained in each product.

Standard Process’ manufacturing facility is inspected by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection Division, as well as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). These inspections occur on a regular basis and include both their farm and their manufacturing facility. Standard Process cooperates fully with these agencies with respect to their inspections and the integrity of the tissues used in their products.
