Why Does Dr. Jacobsen
utilize Standard Process as
one of her main supplement
Dr. Royal Lee, the nutritional visionary who founded Standard Process in 1928, stated that “The best sources of vitamins and minerals are found in whole foods.” He realized that the health of every individual depends on his nutritional intake. In the US, vitamins are sold without being held to any standard of bioavailability (ability to be absorbed and utilized in the body). Because most vitamins on the market are laboratory-tweaked and fractionated, they do not have the cofactors found in the natural sources of food to be absorbed. This method allows only a small percentage to be useful to the body-despite advertising on the label that is 300% of the US RDA. That number is only what it is IN the BOTTLE, not the body. A whole food supplement shows far less of the RDA because it needs the enzymatic breakdown WITHIN the body to covert to usable forms of the nutrients and body can then better attain these much needed vitamins and minerals.
It is the choice of foods by each individual person, today, that will determine to a large extent their physical condition tomorrow
