Cultures from around the world have used herbs for countless therapeutic and culinary purposes—for seasoning, for inspiring, for enjoying, and for healing. Herbs contain some of the most amazing natural compounds that we know. When it comes to medicinal herbs for health, there are different ways of unlocking an herb’s unique profile of phytonutrients for our bodies’ benefit. Some compounds are water soluble (like those in tea leaves), others are best extracted using ethanol (alcohol). Still other compounds may be fats or oils that won’t dissolve well in water or alcohol.
Fortunately, New Chapter’s extraction technologies help us preserve a plant’s beneficial compounds, including its beneficial fats and oils. At New Chapter, we aim to deliver Nature’s whole wisdom in our supplements. To do so, we use full-spectrum methods that include traditional methods as well as supercritical CO2 extraction. What is supercritical extraction? It’s a proprietary process that uses natural carbon dioxide to gently extract delicate plant compounds, including beneficial oils. The method can also highly concentrate phytonutrients, so the constituents of the finest whole herbs can be delivered in just one or two capsules. Known as the “King of Herbs” in Ayurvedic medicine, Turmeric has been used and revered in traditional herbal systems for thousands of years. At New Chapter®, we truly believe that Turmeric is one of the world’s most important herbs. Have you ever experienced joint pain? Many people have inflammation in their joints, such as their elbows or knees. Joint inflammation is actually part of the natural healing process of the body, but it does tend to manifest as pain and discomfort. What’s more, if joint inflammation lasts for several weeks or longer, daily activities and overall mobility may become limited. Fortunately, the Wisdom of Nature provides effective botanicals that can help provide joint comfort. Turmeric, in particular, is used as an anti-inflammatory to help relieve joint pain. Turmeric Force from New Chapter delivers two types of Turmeric extract to provide you with the rhizome’s valuable phytonutrients. Turmeric Force is also used as a liver protectant. New Chapters Turmeric Force uses all constituents if the Turmeric root. Rather than extract Curcumin from the Turmeric root, New Chapter keeps all constituents intact and in its whole food form.
