Glucose Assist™, a blood sugar support supplement designed to maintain a healthy blood glucose level that’s already in a normal range*, is now shipping. This is a uniquely designed, complete nutritional formula comes in powder form, is meant to be consumed as a shake, and is available in chocolate or vanilla varieties. It also:
Supports a reduction of post-meal glycemic response in healthy individuals*
Contains a blend of plant-based carbohydrates and proteins
Provides a slower and more sustained release of glucose to help minimize acute blood sugar spikes and steady post-meal glucose levels*
Maintaining a healthy blood glucose balance is an important pillar of overall wellness. It’s why dietary supplementation with a whole food-based nutritional formula, such as Glucose Assist, is designed to maintain a healthy blood glucose level already in a normal range* which can be beneficial for encouraging wellness.
How Glucose Assist Works
Glucose Assist provides a slower and more sustained release of glucose* because it contains a slowly digestible complex carbohydrate source, EnergySMART®.
In addition, Glucose Assist provides protein-rich, plant-based nutrition sourced from peas, oats, pumpkin seed and buckwheat that might help further minimize blood glucose spikes and potentially help with a steady blood glucose management in healthy individuals*^. This can support a reduction of post-prandial glycemic response*, which has been demonstrated by recent Standard Process clinical studies.
High-Efficiency Fuel for the Body
In addition to supporting normal blood sugar levels already in a healthy range*, Glucose Assist is a low glycemic whole food-based nutritional formula that provides slow-release carbohydrates for sustained energy* — a benefit for many people, including endurance athletes.

Happy Spring Everyone and welcome to pollen season. If you live in the South like I do, then you’ve most likely woken up with the “yellow snow” as we like to call it down here – all of those lovelies blooming flowers that create a yellow blanket over EVERYTHING! Not only is it tough to keep your car clean right now, but this is the time of year where my patients’ allergies start acting up.
This post is dedicated to giving you all of the goods on the recommendations and exact protocols I have used for over 20 years for allergy support in my office for my patients. Many times my patients are able to swap out their over the counter medications for these natural alternatives. My hope is that if I can provide you any relief now or throughout the year then I’ve done my job!
So without further ado, let’s jump to my recommendations –
Feed Your Body – what you eat definitely plays a role in how your immune system functions – the biggest culprits that will knock your immune system down the fastest are sugar, alcohol, and the chemicals in processed foods. Instead opt to eat more veggies, fruits high in Vitamin C, quality proteins and stay hydrated.
Clean your Air – As deemed appropriate and possible, environmental changes may be advisable to minimize ongoing allergen exposures. Relatively straightforward changes include using a high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) air filters, house plants, and essential oils in the home. HEPA filters work to decrease the amount of allergens floating around your home by trapping airborne irritants such as pollen, dust, and pet dander. House plants can assist with air filtration – here’s a link to an entire blog post I wrote dedicated to that topic.
Rinse that Nose: A number of studies have indicated that saline nasal irrigation such as a netti pot can be useful in individuals with hay fever (acute rhinitis). A 2012 study looked at 10 research papers on the topic of saline nasal irrigation and found that saline nasal irrigation produced a “27.66% improvement in nasal symptoms, a 62.1% reduction in medicine consumption, a 31.19% acceleration of mucociliary clearance time, and a 27.88% improvement in quality of life”. Another over the counter option is a nasal wash kit – this one has been my favorite to use.
Supplement your System – There are a number of key nutrients needed to keep the immune system strong and assist with allergy symptoms during pollen season. I have created overall protocols that will support the system as well as protocols for those pesky allergy symptoms. You can click the link for each product to read more about the product and if you feel inclined, you can place an online order on our authorized website.
Allergy Support Protocols
Adult Allergy Support Bundle –– this protocol is ideally taken as prevention during allergy season.
I have been using Standard Process and MediHerb supplements both personally and with my patients for over 20 years and the 21 Day Purification Program has been an integral part my practice. In assisting 1000’s of patients with this program over the years, I know that sometimes it helps to have a little guidance, tips, and extra recipes to keep you on track with the program.
I have spent the last few months creating a FREE online resource for all of our patients and customers to use with the detox program. I have created an online, self-guided program that will walk you through the 21 day purification program step by step.
My goal in creating this program is to provide the perfect self-study course to compliment your detox program. I’ve taken everything I’ve learned from over 18 years in clinical practice working with 1000’s of patients and channeled it into a comprehensive, step-by-step implementation of the 21 day purification program that not only teaches you the high level theory, but the actual EXECUTION of how you can do the same.

Standard Process® understands that simple, straightforward communication is important. That’s why they have recently re-assessed some of the products and renamed them to easily communicate an important product highlight — an ingredient, a featured nutrient, or the body system that it supports.
Iplex® will be known as Eyeplex Cataplex® G will be known as Cataplex® B2 Linum B6 will be known as Flax Oil with B6 Cataplex® F softgels will be known as Flax Oil Plus
Please note that only the product names and label has changed. It is still the EXACT same product with the same ingredients and same dosages!
Thank you for your continued support and please let us know if you have any questions.
As always you can contact us for ordering, or you’re welcome to order online through our authorized Standard Process website:
Since 1929, Standard Process has advanced health through high-quality, whole food based nutritional supplements. We’re trusted partners with health care professionals who rely on our products to holistically address the body and care for patients from all walks of life.

The immune system is responsible for keeping out foreign substances, protecting the body, and helping maintain wellness through a person’s lifespan. When nutrition is poor, a healthy immune response can be compromised.1 On the other hand, consuming adequate amounts of essential nutrients is crucial to the immune response’s function and development.1 Fortunately, SP Children’s™ Immune is designed for everyday support to encourage a lifetime of wellness.
Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and Zinc: Where Immune Systems Get Their Strength
Vitamin C, vitamin D, and zinc are vitally important for the immune system throughout all life stages, including childhood.1 SP Children’s™ Immune is an excellent source of all three.
Children need Vitamin C for a functioning immune system2
Vitamin D is a regulator of immune function1
Zinc is an essential mineral for immune system function3
Contains Prebiotic 2’-FL and Colostrum
The largest immune organ in the body is the GI tract. That’s why SP Children’s™ Immune contains important ingredients that may support the gut and may contribute to a healthy immune system response*:
2’-FL, a prebiotic first identified in human milk, is able to reach the lower GI tract4-9 where it is broken down to feed the growth of beneficial microbes6-11*^
Bovine colostrum is sourced from a whole food (cow’s milk) and supports a normal healthy immune response in the GI tract12
^To date, shown in multiple animal studies, infants, and one adult human study.
Made Safe and Effective for Children
In a taste and tolerance study, SP Children’s™ Immune was considered safe and well-tolerated by children between 4 to 17 years old. No indications of adverse effects were observed.
Like all Standard Process products, SP Children’s™ Immune is subject to a rigorous quality control program. Our scientists run as many as 2,000 tests every week on raw materials, in-process product batches, and finished products so that we can be sure what is in the bottle reflects what is on the label.
A number of you have asked for Standard Process protocols from me – If you are familiar with Dr Bruce West – he offered these, where you complete a system survey and he’d email you back with a specific protocol for your needs.
I’m happy to announce that I will also offer a similar service. You can have the protocol emailed to you and there is also an option if you also want to have a phone call appointment to go over the results, protocol and ask me anything your heart desires.
It is my mission to help my patients feel their best, and am hopeful that this new service will help you and my mission of helping people achieve better health.
Below I’ve outlined the options with pricing and a link if you’d like more information or to purchase.

I promised to update everyone once we had some word on the Standard Process Palmettoplex. Right now it seems that it will most likely be out of stock for the rest of the year.
But I do have some good news!
MediHerb – which is one of the herbal company that is sold by Standard Process in the United States, has released a prostate product called PROSTACO that can now be purchased online that also has Saw Palmetto, one of the main ingredients in Palmettoplex. The recommended daily dose is 3 capsules per day.
ProstaCo contains Saw Palmetto, Nettle Root and Crataeva in a Pumpkin Seed oil base to provide prostate support.
These herbs have been traditionally used in herbal preparations to:
Support healthy urinary tract and prostate gland function
Support healthy bladder function*
Key constituents of this complex include fatty acids, glycerides, sterols, lignans and polyphenols. This product is standardized to contain 96 mg per capsule of Serenoa repens fatty acids to ensure optimal strength and quality.
Suggested Use: 1 capsule 3 times daily, or as directed.
We are excited to share the good news with you: Calcium Lactate has received a make over!
Standard Process has redesigned the Calcium Lactate tablets — a product that contains both calcium and magnesium — to provide you with a better experience.
Calcium Lactate is now available in medium oval tablets, which reduces the number of tablets you will need to take each day. The amount of calcium per serving has also been increased, and it’s now considered an excellent source of calcium (20% of the Daily Value).
Calcium Lactate is a dairy-free, vegan tablet that helps maintain healthy bone density. It is an excellent source of calcium and a good source of magnesium.
Supports muscle and nerve function
Supports normal functions of cells and cell membranes
Supports normal blood clotting process
Supports proper functioning of enzyme systems
Supports and helps maintain healthy bone density and remodeling
Provides support in the immune system response function*
Adequate calcium as part of a healthful diet, along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis in later life
Calcium Lactate contains 20% of the daily recommended value of calcium (from calcium lactate and stearate) and 12% of the daily recommended value of magnesium.
Both of these minerals are essential for a number of metabolic functions and processes in the body, yet much of the U.S. population struggles to meet the recommended amount of either mineral.
Calcium Lactate for Maintaining Healthy Bone Density
Bone remodeling (bone turnover) is a continuous cycle of bone breakdown by osteoclasts in areas of the body where bone isn’t needed, and bone rebuilding handled by osteoblasts.1 In other words, bone itself undergoes continuous remodeling, with constant resorption and deposition of calcium into new bone. The balance between bone resorption and deposition is important for healthy bones, and it changes with age.
Both calcium and magnesium are critical to bone health. 99% of the body’s calcium supply is stored in the bones and teeth where it supports normal and healthy bone structure and function.2 Taking an additional calcium supplement can help increase the body’s supply of calcium.
Magnesium also contributes to the structural development of bone, with 50% to 60% present in the bones. 3 In particular, magnesium is involved in bone formation and influences the activities of osteoblasts (bone rebuilding) and osteoclasts (bone breakdown).4
Calcium Lactate for Immune System Health
Both calcium and magnesium are involved in supporting aspects of the body’s healthy immune system. Calcium (Ca2+) signals control various aspects of cell functioning such as T lymphocytes.5 T lymphocytes – along with other immune cells – respond to foreign particles in the body. These T cells, which are made in bone marrow and are essential for cell-mediated immunity, need a sustained Calcium ion flow for regulation, activation, and proliferation.5
Emerging research indicates magnesium may also play a role in the human immune system response such as through magnesium transporters. A number of magnesium transporters have been identified in immune cells such as Magnesium transporter 1 (MagT1).6 MagT1 is expressed in the spleen, thymus, T and B lymphocytes, suggesting that MagT1 may be involved in the human immune system functions. 7
Does lactate come from milk?
The term “lactate” sounds similar to “lactose,” and you may assume that it comes from cow’s milk, but that is not the case. Calcium Lactate is a non-dairy product.
The “lactate” in Calcium Lactate is a calcium salt of lactic acid. Lactic acid is a byproduct of the bacterial fermentation of sugar. In this case, it does not come from milk.
