I have long been impressed by the dietary supplements supplied by New Chapter, Inc., of Battleboro, Vermont. I search out their many terrific offerings, packaged in the familiar purple boxes. Here’s what the folk at New Chapter have to say on the world’s most important herb, turmeric: “In India’s system of Ayurvedic medicine, turmeric has been recognized for thousands of years as a key balancing and detoxifying herb. In Indonesia’s traditional medical system known as Jamu, turmeric is considered the ‘Queen’ of all herbs, and is the featured daily herb for tens of millions of Indonesians. In Japan and China, people embrace turmeric for its powerful yet safe liver detoxification, and there are societies in Japan where turmeric juice is consumed daily. In the Western medical and herbal traditions, turmeric is considered by many leading scholars to be the most important healing herb on earth.”
As always, keep in mind the disclaimer that the Food and Drug Administration has not evaluated the above opinions. New Chapter also offers the standard disclaimer that this product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
New Chapter grows its own turmeric on a certified biodynamic farm in Costa Rica. The farm is nestled in the volcanic mountains near the Children’s Eternal Rain Forest. New Chapter turmeric is extracted without chemical solvents or heat stress.
I’ve spent decades reading and building my health and welfare library. Today, I practice an extensive, time-consuming, and quite honestly annoying daily regime of supplements. Employed along with daily walking, weight lifting, yoga, and food Nazism, my supplements program appears to have merit. I’ll be 70 years old this year and take no medications, with the exception of drops for dry eyes. Dry eyes are a royal pain, especially if your business is reading, as you know mine is.
Check out New Chapter. You’ll learn a lot and hopefully benefit from some fine products.
