Standard process, a company which produces nutritional supplements, for as far back of 1929 is the brain child of Royal Lee, a dental physician. This company focus is nutrients including vitamins in a whole food state from organic sources. They are processed in a way that their nutritional values are not compromised. Dr. Lee firmly believed that vitamins that occur in nature hold more benefits than their chemical analogues. Most products of standard process are whole food supplements which contain food ingredients, whole food extracts, animal tissues, and concentrates. the whole food ingredients are ingredients which are regularly grown on the farm yard of the company some of these organic ingredients include alfalfa, Spanish black radish, oats, Brussels sprout, barley grasses, beets etc. these are carefully grown to ensure their quality from seedlings till when they are carefully processed into supplements. The whole food extracts are extracts obtained when the needed amounts of nutrients are not available when a whole food ingredient is used. These extracts are obtained via the processing of the whole foods, which can also be processed to obtain two or more useful extracts. For example, whole fish can be processed to obtain fish oil which contains lots of omega-3 fatty acids and other important naturally occurring nutrients. Ingredients are also obtained from animal sources like bovine, porcine and ovine; they are generally called the animal tissue extracts and the concentrates. These raw animal tissues are gotten based on FDA guidelines and approved facilities.

He went further to state that it is through whole foods can these synergistic effects of vitamins be felt by body cells.
