These supplements are much like concentrated food which I chew and allow to melt in my mouth, thus bypassing the digestive process. They aren't at all like chemical pills to swallow.
One unexpected benefit is that they apparently have prevented tooth decay, I haven't undergone any real dental work since 1986. (I had all my mercury fillings removed in 1985-86. The Dentist wanted to replace my crowns then too thinking they might contain Nickel which he considered poisonous. I didn't do it. Every time a tooth is drilled there is a risk of root canal. And Crowns are expensive. So I hope my previous dentists did indeed use gold as the foundation metal.)
I am going to list the supplement ingredients in detail in order to show their biological origin. The Company has a site at Standard Process, Inc. However, their referral service doesn't seem to be working.
Mind you, I am not recommending them in particular. My Kinesiologist/Naturopath prescribes them and they have been very nourishing and effective. I tried to set up a vitamin/mineral regimen on my own,before finding help, but chemically produced supplements struck me of dubious value. I'm also not a fan of those supplements sold through pyramid schemes. In general I think it's a good idea to work with someone

The program means taking the supplements breakfast, lunch and dinner (and in the de-tox phase it can get even more complicated.) I count them out once every 8 days making small packets grouped in 3 separate boxes.
I also take DHEA 25 mg per day prescribed by a French MD and produced in Pharmacy.
Also a MD prescribed liquid Vitamin D dose once a month.
