New Chapter – Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I have a tendency toward Candida and yeast infections; can I still take Probiotic Nutrients™ or fermented foods?
A: There is a misunderstanding about bacteria and Saccharomyces. The truth is that positive bacteria and Saccharomyces compete against pathogenic microbial overgrowth. Saccharomyces and Lactobacillus have evolved to produce natural anti-fungal and antibiotic bacteriocins, which they secrete into their environment. Bacteriocins and other anti-fungal ferment metabolites suppress pathogenic micro-organisms, like Candida albicans and E.coli. It would be highly beneficial for anyone concerned about fungal overgrowth to include New Chapter’s Organic Probiotic Nutrients™ in their daily regimen to optimize their defenses against these conditions.

Q: I don’t do well with soy foods. Since New Chapter’s Probiotic Nutrients™ are cultured in a soy media, will they agree with me?
A: Although true soy allergies are very rare, many people have difficulty digesting unfermented soy. Whole, unprocessed soy contains nutrient blocking factors, such as phytate, which interfere with its potential benefits. Fermented soy, on the other hand, agrees with almost everyone, even people with soy sensitivities. Probiosis of soy also changes isoflavones from inert forms into their activated aglycone genestein, dadzein, and glycitein forms.

Q: Why are New Chapter’s potencies lower than conventional pharmaceutical supplements?
A: Short answer: they are not. We reject the theory that supplementation must be taken in huge doses of inert or bi-phasic isolated vitamins. It is a common misunderstanding that milligrams measure potency. They do not! Milligrams measure only weight and do not reflect cellular activity. New Chapter’s Organic Probiotic Nutrients™ deliver biotransformed vitamins and minerals in their finest cultured form, much in the same way as miso, kefir, tempeh, and yogurt. Research consistently demonstrates that New Chapter’s Organic Probiotic Nutrients are more active than conventional isolated or synthetic vitamins.

Q: Vitamins upset my stomach; will I have this difficulty with New Chapter’s vitamins and minerals?
A: New Chapter’s Probiotic Nutrients are food. Better yet, they are pre-digested, organic cultured food. So when you take New Chapter vitamins your stomach is NOT empty: it has inside it a good friend – cultured organic food – waiting to be comfortably digested. New Chapter’s Organic Probiotic Nutrients are also rich in ferment metabolites, bacteriocins and plant enzymes, and they are thus soothing to the entire gastrointestinal tract and promote digestion, detoxification and elimination.

Q: My doctor and nutritionist have suggested that I supplement 1000 mg of calcium. My New Chapter EveryWoman® II and Cal Mag Bone Health™ supplements provide a combined total of 150 mg. Should I be concerned about the 850 mg difference?
A: We reject the idea that more is better, especially in the case of calcium where it has been shown that the more calcium (both from supplements and from dairy) people consume, the more susceptible they may be to bone fractures, kidney stones and calcium deposits in the blood vessels. Like all vitamins and minerals, calcium is best obtained in biologically reasonable amounts from food sources. New Chapter’s dual-stage culturing process converts inorganic calcium salts found in most conventional supplements into a glycoprotein food complex. So while it may look like you are getting less of this essential mineral, you are actually getting a biologically reasonable amount of this important mineral in its ideal supplement form. In addition, our Probiotic Cal Mag also provides bone-strengthening minerals and herbs — a perfect combination to promote normal bone functioning.

Q: Why do you recommend taking New Chapter’s Supercritical Herbal Therapies in the middle of a meal?
A: These herbal extracts, formulated by Paul Schulick, contain medicinal spices like those grown at our Costa Rican certified organic farm. These healing herbs are extracted using a dense, superfluid form of carbon dioxide and are concentrated up to 300 times. Although it is safe to take our Supercritical Extracts on an empty stomach, we recommend taking them with meals, as they may create a slightly warming feeling in the stomach for some individuals who are not used to such concentrated healing spices. When taken with a meal, that healing heat will work to activate phytonutrients in the herbs while facilitating optimal digestion.

Q: Why have you removed Retinol, a form of vitamin A, from your Organic Probiotic Nutrients?
A: While vitamin A plays an important role in maintaining the health of skin, hair, and nails in addition to preventing blindness and regulating immune function, actual vitamin A deficiencies are extremely rare in the United States and other developed countries. It is abundant in dairy, beef, chicken liver and a host of fortified foods. Scientific studies have indicated that long term supplementation with vitamin A in its synthetic retinol form contributes to birth defects, osteoporosis and subsequently bone fractures. New Chapter’s Organic Probiotic Nutrients contain mixed carotenoids, such as beta carotene and lycopene, from food sources that are non-toxic and easily converted in the body to vitamin A as needed. We believe this is a safer and more desirable way to supplement the body’s vitamin A requirements.

Q: Can I take New Chapter products if I am also taking prescription medications?
A: New Chapter® cannot provide information about combining prescription medicines with herbal or nutritional supplements. We suggest you always advise your prescribing physician or pharmacist about the use of dietary or herbal supplements. Only he or she can determine the risk for herb-drug interactions and supervise your response to the prescribed therapy*. You may also want to consider consulting with a qualified expert in herbal and nutritional therapy on this matter. For a referral database of licensed Naturopathic Physicians and Holistic Medical Doctors in your area, please visit: or

* Herb-drug interactions have been identified with respect to a handful of herbs and vitamins, however the vast majority of this information remains unknown. While herbal medicine has experienced a long history of safe use, this history has not included many of the modern pharmaceutical medications that are frequently used today. By making your health care provider aware of your supplement regimen, you are protecting yourself from any known potential interactions and allowing for any future information on this topic to come to light.

Q: Is there a way to get relief from hormonal imbalances without taking HRT (hormone replacement therapy) or phytoestrogen supplements?
A: Estrotone® supports both pre- and post-menopausal hormone imbalances. Estrotone contains full spectrum, whole-herb extracts of schizandra, ginger, black cohosh, chastetree and rosemary. The phytonutrients in these herbs safely promote hormone balance, inactivate free radicals associated with aging, and modulate 5-lipoxygenase, thereby promoting normal bone growth and breast health. Supercritically extracted Evening Primrose oil, providing a rich source of the Omega 6 fatty acid GLA, is also added to Estrotone to support hormonal health.

If you are seeking to support hormone balance in the body, your doctor might also want to consider suggesting New Chapter’s Organic Every Woman® II for a balanced broad spectrum multi-vitamin supplement and Broccolive® Plus to support the liver’s role in maintaining hormone balance.

Q: Can I take New Chapter products if I am pregnant or nursing?
A: Perfect Prenatal™, Ginger Honey Tonic and All-Flora® are the only products New Chapter recommends specifically to support a healthy pregnancy. Although many herbs and nourishing whole foods have long been used to promote health and comfort during pregnancy, the majority have simply not been thoroughly evaluated in clinical studies for safety during this cherished phase in a woman's life. Therefore, we suggest that pregnant or nursing women use any of our other products only under the direction of their health care provider or qualified expert in herbal and nutritional medicine.

Q: Do I need to refrigerate New Chapter’s products containing live probiotics: Perfect Prenatal™, Berry Green™, Probiotics with a Purpose™, All-Flora® and Smooth Food 2™?
A: No, New Chapter’s “live active culture” probiotics are designed to be shelf-stable in their growth medium and deliver the labeled potency of probiotic species for the life of the product. Given that the viability of probiotics is most influenced by light and moisture, for best results you may wish to store opened products in the refrigerator or another dark, dry place.

Q: Are New Chapter’s products vegan?
A: All of the following New Chapter products are considered vegan: all of the MycoMedicinals®, and Daily Ginger®, Baikal Skullcap, Broccolive® Plus, Berry Green™, Supercritical Diet & Energy™, Green & White Tea, Aloe Vera 200™, All-Flora®, Chlorella Regularis, Immortal Mushrooms™, Rhodiolaforce 100 & 300™, Holy Basil, Smooth Food 2™, CoffeeBerry™, Anti-Aging Formula, and Sensitive Colon Support.

New Chapter’s Probiotic Nutrients™ Made with Organic Ingredients do not meet strict vegan standards. The Lactobacilli acidophilus culture used in the second stage of our unique food culturing process is originally grown in its favorite environment, milk. However, the organisms are separated from the dairy growth medium prior to their addition to the Probiotic Nutrients culturing medium. Additionally, the vitamin D* utilized for culturing with organic whole food ingredients in our vitamin D-containing products is derived from wool wax

* The following Probiotic Nutrient formulas contain vitamin D: Every Man®, Every Man® II, Every Man®’s One Daily, Every Woman®, Every Woman® II, Every Woman®’s One Daily, Every Woman®’s Inner Beauty, Only One™, Perfect Prenatal™, and Tiny Tabs Multi™.

Please note: With the exception of SC Diet and Energy which is delivered as a vegetarian tablet, and Oreganoforce™ which is encapsulated in fish gelatin, New Chapter’s Supercritical Therapy® products are encapsulated in bovine gelatin.

Q: Are New Chapter’s products gluten-free?
A: Probiotic Nutrients™, Supercritical Therapies™, MycoMedicinals® , Probiotics with a Purpose™ and Specialty Formulas do not contain ingredients considered by the Celiac Sprue Association to pose harm to individuals with gluten intolerance. Berry Green™ and Perfect Prenatal™ both contain oats, a food that may or may not elicit an immune response in individuals with gluten intolerance.

Q: Is New Chapter certified by a third-party?
A: New Chapter is currently under limited certification by International Certification Services (ICS), a third-party certifying body. Our organic operations in Costa Rica are certified by Eco-Logica. New chapter and it’s co-processors are certified to the standards of the USDA’a National Organic Program (NOP), as well as, in certain instances, the International Federation of Organic Agricultural Movements (IFOAM) and the European Organic Standard (EEC 2092/91). As the GMP’s (Good Manufacturing Practices) are not final for the Dietary Supplement Industry, we are holding on third party Certification for GMP compliance. We are currently operating under the FDA’s guidelines as mandated in 21 CFR for the food industry Parts 100 – 169. The FDA audited New Chapter in 2003.

Q: How does New Chapter ensure the quality, purity and potency of their products?
A: New Chapter’s Quality Assurance, Quality Control and Regulatory Compliance team have over 47 years combined experience divided equally between New Chapter and related industry experience. From Paul Schulick, New Chapter’s founder, down through the organization, all New Chapter Associates share in our commitment to quality.

New Chapter requires that all lots of raw materials used for the manufacture of our products are tested for potency markers, heavy metal contamination and/or microbiological content. Our co-processors forward this information on a Certificate of Analysis for our approval prior to use or shipping. We randomly verify information contained on C of A’s through third-party laboratory analysis.

New Chapter does finished product testing on weights, potency, marker assays, micro and heavy metals. We also do expiration date testing on a random basis for the duration of declared shelf life: 18 months to 3 years.

Q: What is the difference between Supercritical Holy Basil™ and Holy Basil Vcaps?
A: New Chapter offers two holy basil products. Both provide the healing benefits of this traditional Ayurvedic herb, but because different methods of herbal extraction are utilized in the processing of the herb, each provides slightly different ratios of the plant’s active constituents. Our original Holy Basil product is extracted using water and alcohol and delivered in a veggie capsule, making it suitable for vegetarians. It is Potency Assured™ for ursolic acid, one the plant’s key constituents. Supercritical Holy Basil offers the advantage of supercritical extraction, a process that is especially good at extracting the oily plant constituents (concentrating them 50 times), which are often difficult to extract using conventional methods or without resorting to the use of chemical solvents. We combine the supercritical extract with a water and alcohol extract to provide the most complete representation of all the plant compounds present in the whole herb. Supercritical Holy Basil is Potency Assured™ for ursolic acid, oleanolic acid, rosmarinic acid, eugenol and caryophyllenes. It is delivered in a gelcap.

Q: What is the difference between St. John’s SC27™ and Serofin™?
A: St. John’s Wort is widely recognized for its ability to safely and naturally support positive emotional health. St. John’s SC27, New Chapter’s original St John’s Wort formula, contains a supercritical extract of the herb, and is Potency Assured™ for hyperforins, a fat-soluble constituent considered to be central to the herb’s positive effect on emotional health. Cutting-edge research has revealed that multiple classes of both fat-soluble and water-soluble phytonutrients, including hyperforins and hypericins, are independently capable of producing beneficial effects, but all of the phytonutrients working in synergy will produce optimum benefit. Following this discovery, New Chapter formulated Serofin, a St. John’s Wort product containing both the supercritical extract found in SC27 and separate hydroethanolic extract of the herb Potency Assured™ for the water-soluble constituent hypericin. While most people consider Serofin to be a superior formulation providing the broadest-spectrum of active constituents, we continue to offer St. John’s SC27 for thousands of individuals who have used this product with great success to safely promote balanced brain chemistry.

Q: Should I be concerned about products containing maltodextrin if I have a food allergy or sensitivity to corn?
A: Generally, corn allergies or sensitivities are a response to the protein portion of the grain, and since maltodextrin is derived from corn starch, it rarely creates immune responses in individuals sensitive to corn protein. However, trace amounts of the protein may be present and we recommend that individuals speak with their health care practitioners about their personal experience with products containing maltodextrin to determine if they are appropriate.
