New Chapter’s “cultured” food
supplements are in fact both “food” and “supplements.” We do not
believe that people (or plants, for that matter) were designed to eat
mega-dosages of synthetic chemicals, so we simply don’t offer
synthetic chemical vitamins and supplements. We deliver something that
is at once extraordinarily complex and also simple: Cultured Food. New
Chapter’s supplements provide you with all the vitamin and mineral
supplementation you require coming from the finest sources of herbs,
nutrient-dense superfoods and our unique food-cultured supplements.
Yes, we deliver nourishment in the form of food, and what a rich,
powerful nutrient infusion it is!
For decades, people all over the world
have been passionate about our unique cultured supplements. Our New
Chapter family is growing dramatically, as people are rejecting the
theory that vitamins and minerals should be synthetic and in huge,
unnatural doses. People are tired of taking chemical isolates.
Instead, people want to know that they have a totally natural form of
vitamins, coming from extraordinary food, in levels that are
intelligently aligned with our bodies’ real needs. In other words,
people are embracing the oldest principle on earth—gain nourishment
from the finest and most nutritionally satisfying wholesome foods.
That is not just a theory, it is the way of nature itself, and we at
New Chapter are committed to Delivering the Wisdom of Nature.
Before you buy your next bottle of
vitamins and supplements, we ask you to take the “New Chapter
challenge.” Ask yourself “do I want to eat a highly compressed tablet
of synthetic chemicals, or do I want to eat a unique blend of
superfoods, herbs, and cultured nutrients?” We think we know how you
will answer that question. Welcome to the New Chapter family!
Each of our cultured supplements is
different, but they share three basic “Truths:”
Truth #1. Cultured Food is Our Best
Truth #2. Maximize Nutrition with
Truth #3. Herbs and Phytonutrients
Truth #1: Cultured Food is Our Best
“Cultured Food” means food that is
created out of the interaction between beneficial flora and a rich
food source—like yogurt, bread, miso, or wine. You start with grains;
add the correct “yeast,” and the magic of culturing transforms the
inedible grains into the staff of life. You take milk, which so many
people cannot tolerate, add the correct bacilli, and presto, you have
a living, vital food called yogurt. You take soy beans, add the
correct lactobacilli, and you end up with some of the most powerhouse
foods on earth—namely, natto and miso.
Why does New Chapter go to the
considerable effort and expense of culturing food? Well, one simple
reason is that people have lived on cultured foods for tens of
thousands of years. But there are other reasons, which we call the
“ABC’S of Culturing.”
‘A’ is for Activity
Foods are made more biologically
“active” or powerful by culturing. Just a few examples tell the whole
story. Our vitamin C is 250 mgs. of pure, food-cultured vitamin C.
When people buy a vitamin C supplement, most do not realize that they
are buying synthetic ascorbic acid that is many times more refined
than white sugar. Not with New Chapter. Our vitamin C is cultured
food, and science has confirmed that our C is up to 11 times more
active than synthetic C from ascorbic acid. What is more, taking too
much synthetic C may present health challenges, so it is especially
valuable to take New Chapter’s modest dosage of food-cultured C, which
delivers all the Vitamin C you need in an intelligent dosage.
Similarly, CoQ-10 is a wonderful
supplement that supports the body’s use of oxygen within the cell. It
is especially supportive of proper functioning in the heart and immune
system. New Chapter’s food-cultured CoQ-10 has 9 times the antioxidant
activity than synthetic CoQ-10, which means that 22 mgs. of New
Chapter’s CoQ-10 equals 200 mgs. of the synthetic form.
There are countless expressions of this
increased activity. In the soybean, a compound called “genestin” is
converted to the more valuable compound “genestein” by culturing. We
can’t even digest genestin without the support of the culturing
process. The glucosinolates in broccoli are activated by culturing and
become the extraordinarily important “isothiocyanates.” The beneficial
flora does our work for us, and by activating the foods they intensify
and release the precious nutrients. It is like releasing an eagle from
a cage—there is potential power in the cage, but there is majesty in
‘B’ is for Bioavailability
Think of digestion when you hear
“bioavailability.” You can eat all the nutrients you want, but they
don’t do you any good unless you can digest and absorb them. The
culturing process, using the correct flora to break down any difficult
to digest components, does our work for us and makes it very easy to
digest the food and have its nutrients bioavailable. Soybeans become
more bioavailable or digestible when cultured to become natto or miso.
Yogurt is far easier to digest than milk. Bread is almost infinitely
easier to digest than raw grains or flours. We just use Nature’s work
force to do the heavy lifting, while we sit comfortably and enjoy the
nutrients in just the right form for our physiologies.
‘C’ is for Coherence
The opposite of coherence is disorder.
Think of rancid, spoiled food—that is disorder. Cultured foods are
suffused with orderliness, and they resist the chaos of rotting. Milk
goes bad quickly, but yogurt lasts for weeks. Grape juice can spoil,
but a bottle of Port can last for decades. A head of cabbage can
wrinkle, spot and spoil rather quickly, but cultured cabbage, namely,
sauerkraut, can last for a long time. The intelligence of the
culturing process is legendary, and cultured foods are simply more
coherent and stable.
‘S’ is for Safety
When a food is cultured using our
friendly “probiotics” and the proper nutritional yeasts, the cultured
food is extremely safe. The beneficial flora actually creates
by-products that make it difficult for “bad” bacteria or flora to
grow. Those healthy by-products include “bacteriocins” that kill
bacteria like e-coli, and the beneficial yeasts make by-products that
inhibit the growth of certain very unwelcome yeasts. These beneficial
flora are our friends, people have used them to create healthy food
for millennia, and they are still around to make our food safer to
New Chapter’s Vitamins and
Minerals are Cultured
With the ABC’S of culturing in mind,
New Chapter grows its vitamins and minerals to maximize the benefits
of culturing. We start with pure water and add to it soymilk from non-GMO
soybeans. To that we add, depending on the vitamin or mineral we are
growing, appropriate fruits and vegetables and a very small amount of
the USP vitamin or mineral. That creates a “soup” or super broth,
which is inoculated with just the right nutritional yeast to culture
the process. That nutritional yeast is called “saccharomyces
cerevisiae,” or Brewer’s Yeast. The yeast literally eats the “soup,”
culturing everything in the broth. As we described in the ABC’S, when
the beneficial flora culture a food they make it more active and
bioavailable. The nutrient-dense broth is cultured, converted, and
bio-transformed into something new and wonderful: an easily digested,
highly active, and natural food rich with the target nutrient. Yes, it
is food, and we experience and metabolize it as such. But it is
special, as different from the raw ingredients as the finest loaf of
bread is from a raw grain of rye or wheat.
Truth #2: Maximize Nutrition with
We don’t want to eat too much, but we
want the foods we eat to count. No empty calories, no fillers. So, in
each of our multivitamins and food supplements we include superfoods
that are small powerhouses of energy, protein, antioxidants, and trace
minerals. For example, all of our food supplements are cultured with
Brewer’s Yeast in non-GMO soymilk. Ounce for ounce, the yeast is a
fabulous source of protein and nutrients, and the culturing process
generates copious amounts of naturally-occurring ingredients like
superoxide dismutase, GTF chromium, detoxifying compounds like
glutathione, phospholipids, digestive enzymes, and beta 1, 3 glucans.
People pay $50 a month for a supplemental form of the beta glucans,
while a richer supply is naturally available from the culturing
process in every serving of our food-cultured nutrients. People look
to separately purchase synthetic superoxide dismutase (SOD) because it
is such a valuable antioxidant, but it is naturally created and
plentifully available in all of our food supplements. Taking a New
Chapter food supplement is really the least expensive way to obtain
supplement support, for all the wonderful natural phytonutrients are
naturally occurring with the food-cultured nutrients.
In addition to the nutritional yeast
and its by-products, we include superfoods like chlorella, wheat
grass, and Laminaria digitata. These foods are selected by us from the
finest possible sources, are the highest grade and offer the widest
range of dense nutrient support. They are food, truly food, but food
that delivers powerful nutritive support in a small package. Think of
it like this: you can breathe thin air and your lungs struggle for
oxygen, or you can breathe sweet rich air along a pure ocean beach.
These superfoods are the sweet rich ocean air of the food chain, and
just a little of these foods restore and revitalize. And they come in
all of New Chapter’s multivitamins.
Truth #3: Herbs and Phytonutrients
There are hundreds of phytonutrients or
plant-based nutrients that come with every New Chapter food
supplement. We believe in the power of herbs, and the constituents of
these herbs support our physiologies and make the vitamins and
minerals more valuable. Our master herbalist selects the finest herbal
extracts, and we make this unconditional promise to you: our extracts
are not made with the use of any chemical solvents.
