The temperature used in processing harvested plants is never raised above the point of 90 degrees Fahrenheit, so that the active ingredients are not cooked; they remain active and alive, and have a very long shelf life.
Standard Process nutrients are derived from plants grown on their own farms, in deep, rich topsoil free of pesticides – and no chemicals are ever used. Ph.D.’s check the soil before the seeds are sown, to make sure of the fertility of the soil – and even the weeding is done by hand.
The machinery involved in the processing of these products is made of glass and stainless steel only. Your vitality and energy is derived from live food, without contaminants.
Most “foods” today are all dead – or are not really foods at all – as in boxed cereals, canned vegetables, soda pop, etc. You can readily understand the difference between dead, devitalized pseudo-foods, with the synthetic or isolated vitamins on the one hand, and “Designed Clinical Nutrition” and a diet of real foods, on the other.
One example of a designed clinical nutrition supplement that we use is called “Catalyn”. This product is produced by starting with a wide variety of carefully chosen organically grown vegetables, taking the water and fiber out using a vacuum, low heat process – without heating or cooking the vegetables, and then utilizing the concentrated food to make a bottle of Standard Process Catalyn Tablets. This was the first and is still the best, whole food multiple vitamin/mineral product created and it is itself, a literal super-food.
