Ideal Chiropractic is proud to carry Standard Process vitamins. Standard Process is locally made in Palmyra, Wisconsin. Standard Process vitamins are whole-food vitamins, whereas most vitamins are man-made in a lab. Standard Process has an organic farm where they grow their own fruits and vegetables. They are then harvested and taken just down the road from the farm, ground up and made into vitamins. Your body then recognizes these vitamins as food, and it is readily absorbed in the body. Many of the popular brands of vitamins are man-made in a lab, your body recognizes it as foreign or unusable, and the majority of the vitamin is simply excreted in the urine.
More details about Standard Process are listed below. You can also visit their website at www.standardprocess.com. To set up a nutrition consultation with Dr. Jessica, contact the office at 920-907-1700.
Why Standard Process Vitamins
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. Americans are overfed and undernourished.
There is good news
Given proper nutrition, the human body has an amazing ability to heal 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.
Where do the ingredients come from?
Manufacturers who grow many of their ingredients have the unique ability to control the quality of the ingredient from seed to supplement. Certified organic farms further enhance the quality of these ingredients.
When are ingredients processed?
Different foods reach their peak nutrient value during different times within the growing season. Pea vine, for example, is at its peak during the flowering stage.
Once harvested, food begins to lose its value. If there is a delay of hours, days, or months from when an ingredient is harvested to when it’s processed, many of its very delicate phytonutrients are lost.
Are the ingredients vital factors retained?
Each ingredient has its own set of rules in relation to how to best extract and package its vital life. The manufacturing process needs to retain the vital nutrients within the ingredients. Too much heat will destroy enzymes and phytonutrients.
