Perhaps one of the best answers to the question, “Why whole food supplements?” comes from Catalyn, the original multivitamin created by the Standard Process’ founder, Dr. Royal Lee. Lee created Catalyn in response to the declining health of family and friends, that followed the increased prevalence of refined and processed foods, especially grains. At the time, Lee simply asked, “What piece is now missing that wasn’t missing before?”. Catalyn was the answer. To create Catalyn, Lee combined wheat germ (the part of the wheat berry that is removed from wheat during the refining process) with a number of other plant and animal products that he knew to possess great health benefits. To this day, we are still discovering nutrients essential to human function, and Catalyn contains all of them (over 2000).
So how is it possible that a supplement created nearly a century ago already contains all of these nutrients?
