Catalyn is Standard Process’s (www.StandardProcess.com) multivitamin. It was their original product, developed by Dr. Royal Lee in 1929. Its name is a derivative of the word catalyst. A catalyst is something that drives a chemical reaction forward. Because the body functions as a series chemical reactions, and catalysts drive chemical reactions forward, then taking a supplement like Catalyn, can be extremely beneficial.
Catalyn is made from whole natural sources-liver, wheat germ, yeast, and many other whole foods, including all the trace mineral elements. The major minerals are: potassium, sodium, calcium and phosphorus. These are needed in a high quantity. Dr. Lee felt the trace minerals to be of the utmost importance. He felt that the function of Standard Process’ products is due more to the trace minerals they contain, than to the vitamins.
Catalyn also contains 12 raw foods. It supports the entire body and many of its systems. It is a great nutritional baseline, especially for someone who leads a ketogenic lifestyle. The idea behind supplementation is to fill in the nutritional gaps that all diets have. Catalyn does this better than any other supplement I’ve ever used.
