The Standard Process Research and Development Team generates high-quality research through cell, animal, and human studies, to expand our knowledge of how complex mixtures, like supplements made with whole food ingredients, support health.


Innovation Is Our Standard

Leading clinical innovation has been the focus of Standard Process for nearly 90 years. Today, this commitment continues with the Standard Process Nutrition Innovation Center.

The center opened in April and is designed to deliver new clinical advances and insights in nutrition therapy. A dedicated innovation center, the facility includes a range of research and development activity encompassing discovery of new natural health solutions, clinical development, product development, food science, and even the industry’s only dedicated media learning facility for practitioner education.

The Nutrition Innovation Center is located at the prestigious North Carolina Research Campus in Kannapolis, North Carolina, and is led by John Troup, PhD, Standard Process Vice President of Clinical Science, Education, & Innovation. The Standard Process facility is the only innovation and clinical research center of its kind in the nutrition industry, being fully dedicated to supporting the needs of natural health care professionals by focusing on clinical outcomes in therapeutic care as well as specific benefits and outcomes of whole food clinical nutrition. The center serves as an active site that advances wholistic, integrative, and functional medicine for all practitioners.

The center’s work brings forward the legacy of our first innovator, Standard Process founder Dr. Royal Lee, by advancing clinical practices based on the whole food health advantage.
