Standard Process Center of Excellence
Standard Process is a leader in whole food nutrient solutions. Based in Palmyra, Wisconsin, Standard Process offers more than 300 high-quality supplements made with whole food and other ingredients through three product lines, Standard Process®, Standard Process Veterinary Formulas™ and MediHerb® herbal supplements. The products are available exclusively through health care professionals, including chiropractors, acupuncturists, nurses, naturopaths, medical doctors and veterinarians.
The Standard Process Center of Excellence will be open in early 2018 in the David H. Murdock Core Laboratory Building on the NC Research Campus. The center will be a focal point for innovation in nutritional therapy, developing new solutions for healthcare professionals and patients while advancing the science of whole food nutrition. Innovation will be bolstered by collaborative relationships with the NCRC’s university research centers, the David H. Murdock Research Institute and the campus’ other corporate and community partners.
The Center of Excellence will house four major programs including:
- Discovery innovation research focused on preclinical, systems biology and cell models that advance information on targeted effects of phytonutrients and nutritional solutions
- A clinical development and research program defined by a national coalition of collaborating clinical research sites that establishes a network for practice-based and case-observation studies conducted on a national basis
- A professional media and learning center that will provide the most advanced educational tools and capabilities available to further practitioner education and training
- The Clinic of the Future, an integrative clinical practice bringing together multiple credentialed health professionals at one site where training on the practical and relevant aspects of clinical nutrition therapies will be offered for all levels of practitioners
Standard Process is guided by the whole food philosophy of its founder, Dr. Royal Lee.

Using state-of-the-art manufacturing processes to retain vital nutrients within each ingredient, Standard Process manufactures its supplements in its certified organic manufacturing facility. Standard Process employs high quality control standards and follows the Food and Drug Administration’s good manufacturing practices.
