Adrenal Energy By: Crystal Star

Do you have a Type-A personality? Are you under a lot of stress?

People with Type-A personalities often push their bodies past their limits. Overproduction of adrenaline is common to Type-A people and people under stress. Crystal Star Adrenal Energy rebuilds adrenal strength to relieve fatigue and boost endurance, it helps balance blood sugar and reduce stress. Seaweeds, specifically chosen as storehouses for vitamins A, D, E and K and herbs rich in vitamin C, have been blended together for their rapid nutritive effect on the adrenal glands. Adaptogenic herbs, like Siberian Eleuthero and Ho Shou Wu reduce the fatigue and exhaustion associated with adrenal dysfunction.

Are you constantly depressed or anxious?

Anti-depressant drugs like Prozac, in addition to their side effects, also change your body chemistry, potentially making you more at risk for a panic attack or abnormal behavior. Over 30 million Americans have been diagnosed with clinical anxiety, panic disorders and phobias. Another 35 million suffer mild to moderate symptoms. Anxiety and phobias are more than just frightening. They are closely tied to high blood pressure, heart spasms and heart disease. Tonic adaptogens in Adrenal Energy help bring valuable balance to your bodys chemistry to allay depression and anxiety.

Are you taking your Vitamin K???

Jarrow FORMULAS MK-7 is an extract from genetically unmodified (non-GMO) soybeans fermented with Bacillus subtilus natto. MK-7 is concentrated without solvents. MK-7 (Menaquinone-7) is an enhanced bioactive form of vitamin K2, also known as Menaquinones. MK-7 from Natto is ten times better absorbed than K1 from spinach. While vitamin K1 is primarily absorbed by the liver, MK-7 is absorbed in extrahepatic tissues, such as the arterial wall, pancreas, and testes. Vitamin K functions primarily as a co-factor for the enzyme gamma-glutamyl-carboxylase, responsible for carboxylation of specific bone proteins. Each softgel of MK-7 offers the amount of menaquinone-7 (MK-7) found in 120 grams of cheese.

Why should you choose New Chapter

Why you should choose New Chapter for your daily supplements.

**Health & Wellness The Way Nature Intended
Whole Food Supplements: We believe in nourishment, protection and health that comes from whole food, not synthetic chemical isolates.
**Organic Ingredients: Many of our products are certified organic, sourced from nature’s bounty of organic fruits, vegetables, herbs and superfoods.
** Validated by Science: We rely on modern science to validate our products’ effectiveness and to seek out greater discoveries in nourishment and health.
**Devoted To Sustainability: We’re committed to protecting and sustaining the natural world that provides for us and for future generations.
**Do you know what your supplements are made of?
New Chapter supplements are whole food. Easily recognized and absorbed.
**New Chapter vitamin, mineral and herbal supplements are a whole-food complex – something your body easily recognizes and absorbs. Sourced from nature’s bounty of organic fruits, vegetables, herbs and superfoods and cultured in probiotics to deliver the full spectrum of Nature’s benefits. This is a very big deal. Because the whole truth about most of the conventional vitamins, minerals and supplements on the shelves is that they are synthetic chemical isolates. Our bodies understand and seek nourishment from whole food. Synthetic chemical isolated forms of nutrients lack the full spectrum of Nature’s benefits and, frankly, we prefer the real thing to a synthetic version of the real thing. Who wouldn’t?
**Gentle on your stomach because they’re food: Because New Chapter’s vitamins, minerals and herbs are a whole-food complex, they’re gentle on your stomach. So gentle that you can even take them on an empty stomach. In fact, we don’t even consider them food supplements, They’re supplemental food®.
**Organic Products, Organic Mission
Committed to organic ingredients: Many of our vitamin, mineral and herbal supplements are certified organic and most New Chapter products are made with organic ingredients. From the fruits, vegetables, herbs and superfoods we source around the world to our very own biodynamic farm in Costa Rica, we are committed to organic ingredients.
**We believe organic makes a difference: New Chapter was the first company in the world to produce a full line of whole food complexed vitamins and supplements certified to be made with organic ingredients. We believe the natural purity of organic ingredients is better for people and better for the environment.
Organic crops are, on average, more nutrient dense than conventionally grown crops — sometimes more than 20 percent for certain minerals and, on average, about 30 percent for antioxidants. We’ve been living an organic lifestyle and working toward an organic, sustainable world since New Chapter began in 1982. It has long been the heart and soul of our people, especially Tom Newmark, the man who contributed so much to our organic mission.
**We don’t just source organic ingredients. We also grow them, including organic turmeric and ginger at Luna Nueva, our own biodynamic farm nestled in the rainforests of Costa Rica. Luna Nueva is at the core of who we are.
