Standard Process labs was founded by Dr. Royal Lee, whose work in nutrition was years ahead of his time. Dr.Lee recognized that each food has a complex of nutrients that work synergistically. He recognized things such as phytonutrients, which science is very excited about today, over 50 years ago. He also recognized that vitamins depend on co-factors found only in the whole food to work properly. He proved that synthetic vitamins isolated from these co-factors could actually be harmful.
