What is a Protomorphogen™ extract?

Protomorphogen™ extracts are specific materials extracted from animal glands and organs through a complex, multistep process to retain what Standard Process founder Dr. Royal Lee termed “cell determinants.” In 1947, he defined cell determinants as the smallest functional unit of the chromosome, saying that cell determinants are the components that direct, maintain, and regulate cell functions (such as those related to protein, genetic material, and compounds like minerals).*

Current laboratory methods have confirmed that these proprietary extracts contain minerals, nucleotides (the components of nucleic acids like RNA and DNA), and peptides (short chains of amino acids).*

Why is this extract used in supplements?

Dr. Lee created products that incorporated ideal sources of nutrition from both vegetables and animals. We start with glands and organs because they are inherently different from skeletal muscle. Organ meats have more DNA per gram than skeletal muscle, different protein profiles, and different starting concentrations of vitamins and minerals.1 To optimize the benefit of these ingredients sourced from animal tissues, Dr. Lee created the Protomorphogen™ extract.

Dr. Lee believed that animal extracts support cellular health at the level of the nucleus and provide targeted benefits for cellular function. In an unbalanced system, he believed, gland and organ extracts activate a renewed function of the normal gland.*

Current lab and clinical investigations into the structure and function of Standard Process animal tissue extracts are ongoing, and Dr. Lee’s beliefs have not been conclusively proven.

What other ingredients round out this formula to support health?

In addition to pancreas PMG™ extract, Pancreatrophin PMG contains alfalfa and nutritional yeast to support health. Alfalfa is regarded as a source of enzymes and chlorophyll.2 Alfalfa’s chlorophyll content is one of the highest in the plant kingdom. Chlorophyll protects the gastrointestinal tract and helps maintain healthy intestinal flora.3 Nutritional yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) contains micronutrients such as chromium, selenium, and B-complex vitamins.4,5,6,7 In addition, nutritional yeast helps support a healthy balance of normal intestinal flora.8 Nutritional yeast is also a source of essential amino acids and enzymes that break down proteins.9*

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.*


Suggested Use: One tablet per meal, or as directed.
