Cataplex® D supports bone health, mineral absorption, the immune system, and cellular processes.*

  • Encourages healthy calcium absorption from the intestinal tract into the blood
  • Supports healthy immune system response function
  • Supports and maintains healthy bone density
  • Provides vitamin D, which is needed by almost every cell in the body for development and transcription*
How does this product support healthy immune function?

Vitamin D, as contained in Cataplex D, is recognized as fundamental to the development and control of important cells in the immune system, including lymphocytes1 and macrophages.2, 3 Vitamin D acts on immune cells, affecting the production of a variety of chemical messengers.4 Adequate levels of vitamin D help to maintain the integrity of the immune system.5, 6, 7, 8*

How does this product support healthy bones?

Cataplex D provides vitamin D, which helps control blood levels of calcium and phosphate, which are raw materials used by bone-forming cells to produce woven bone for growth and normal repair.9 Vitamin D maintains calcium and phosphate levels to ensure correct mineralization of bones and plays a crucial role in development and maintenance of a healthy skeleton.10, 11 Vitamin D also plays a role in calcium absorption.12 The absorption of calcium in the intestine is regulated by vitamin D,13 and vitamin D deficiency causes reduced calcium absorption in the gut.14 Vitamin D requires several other nutrients for assimilation, including calcium and vitamin A. The human body contains more calcium than any other mineral. Approximately 99 percent of that calcium is used in the bones and teeth.15*

How does this product support cellular processes?

Vitamin A, as contained in Cataplex D, regulates numerous cellular processes. Metabolites of vitamin A regulate the expression of many genes involved in cell growth and differentiation, development, and balanced physiological processes.16 Calcium and phosphorus are involved in many bodily processes, and maintaining the delicate balance between calcium and phosphorus is necessary for proper bone health and maintenance of cells and tissue throughout the body.17*

Whole Food Nutrient Solutions

Since 1929, Standard Process has been the visionary leader in whole food nutrient solutions. We apply systems thinking to holistic nutrition that empowers practitioners to transform lives. Dedicated to the whole food philosophy of our founder, Dr. Royal Lee, our goal is to carry on his mission to provide nutrients for the body that are as close as possible to how they are found in nature.

Our products include foods that are prepared in a way that safeguards their nutritional value. The majority of these ingredients are grown locally on our certified organic farm and may require chopping, dicing, juicing, and/or drying for use in our products. The resulting whole food ingredients are then added to a formula that may include whole food extracts, animal tissue extracts and concentrates, botanicals, whole food isolates, and synthetic ingredients. These highly complex combinations contain a variety of elements designed to trigger trophic effects that support the body’s healthy balance and wellness.*
