Wheat kernel comprised of starch and
nutrient-rich bran and germ
Bran and germ are removed, resulting in primarily empty starch (flour).
Processed flour is bleached to improve the appearance and texture of consumer goods.
Bleached flour is enriched by adding in a few isolated B vitamins and iron in an attempt to replace what has been removed.
Nutrient-deficient consumer goods that have the ability to sit on a store shelf for an extended period of time are the final result.
We eat plenty but we are still starving. 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. The foods we eat are not providing our bodies with the nutrition it needs to survive and be healthy. We are starving our bodies and we are sick. We suffer from diabetes, heart attacks, obesity, and the list goes on and on.
Only whole food supplements complete the nutritional gap.
A word of advice: Not all whole food supplements are the same.
There is good news.
Given proper nutrition, the human body has an amazing ability to heal itself. If properly fed and given the right nutrients, the human body is designed to repair 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. 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. Many whole food supplements available in today's marketplace range in quality. Companies are riding the wave of supplement popularity rather than focusing on commitment and quality.- Standard Process Webpage
This is my third week on my structured training program and it feels great. The lack of sugar in my diet is improving my recovery big time. I am not getting nearly as sore and I have more energy. The Standard Process supplements I taking are helping big time as well:
- Multizyme (a pancreatic enzyme supplement to help take the stress off my pancreas)- Zypan - (Betaine Hydrochloride - more an acid to break down proteins better)
- Spleen PMG ( A protomorphogin designed to rebuild my spleen)
- Zymex II - (an anti- parasitical/bug product to help remove the debris from a dying parasite)
- Catalyn - (Standard Process' whole foods based multi-vitamin - it really is just a bunch of freeze dried whole food - GREAT PRODUCT)
