New Chapter’s fermented, activated vitamin C Complex combines vitamin C (as ascorbic acid from fermented foods) with a herb mix featuring elderberry extract, turmeric and maca for a healthy immune system, more energy and less stress. The nutrients in this supplement provide a wide spectrum of phytonutrients and fermented metabolites.

The importance of vitamin C
Vitamin C is one of the most important vitamins for our body and plays a beneficial role in almost all diseases. Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, activates the immune system, replenishes antioxidants in the body and accelerates recovery after illness. In addition, it promotes the absorption of iron, it provides more energy and healthy bones, teeth, skin and blood vessels. Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant and, together with vitamin E, protects the body against harmful free radicals. It is important that vitamin C in a dietary supplement, just like in nature, is supported with bioflavonoids. These are polyphenols, a group of chemical compounds common in plants. Bioflavonoids prevent the breakdown of vitamin C and ensure better absorption. Included in this vitamin C complex by New Chapter are bioflavonoids from the elderberry.
Recommended amount of vitamin C
The recommended daily intake of vitamin C for healthy adults is 75 mg. That's a minimal amount. In case of pregnancy, smoking, stress or (recovery from) illness, you have a greater need for vitamin C. A lack of vitamin C can have serious consequences. It reduces resistance, wound healing and build-up of connective tissue. If the shortage becomes acute, as it did historically in the crew of ships that had been at sea for a long time, scurvy follows, causing weight loss, insomnia, fatigue and eventually loss of teeth and internal bleeding.
No official upper limit for vitamin C has been established. This water-soluble vitamin is harmless; any surplus leaves the body through the urine. A daily amount of over 1000 milligrams may have a light laxative effect. Some of the unincorporated vitamin C disappears to the large intestine, where it attracts water and thus may cause diarrhoea.
More energy through fermented schisandra, chamomile and maca
New Chapter’s Activated C Complex contains fermented schisandra, chamomile and maca. Schisandra is one of the most beneficial ingredients in the New Chapter kitchen. The berries of this Asian plant are known for improving resistance and liver function and for increasing mental and physical performance.
Chamomile has been used for centuries because of its relaxing effect on the nerves. It is beneficial for the stomach and intestines and has mild anti-inflammatory and antiseptic effects. Chamomile contains essential oils, flavonoids, amino acids, polysaccharides, phenolic acids, malic acid, calcium and vitamins B1 and C.
Maca, or Peruvian ginseng, is rich in minerals, trace elements, amino acids and fibre. It is cultivated high up in the Andes mountains and contains many micronutrients straight from the nutritious mountain soil including magnesium, calcium, potassium, selenium, iodine, manganese, iron and copper. In addition, maca is a source of proteins and amino acids. The Incas used maca as an energy booster and to promote endurance.
Stronger immune system through elderberry and turmeric
A spice blend of cultivated, organic elderberries and turmeric supports the action of New Chapter's Activated C Complex. Elderberries promote the immune system and are traditionally used to treat influenza, colds and yeast infections. They also remedy the production of bad cholesterol, which is beneficial for the heart and blood vessels. The elderberry’s bioflavonoids help to counteract cell damage caused by poor nutrition, environmental pollution and stress. Bioflavonoids also prevent the breakdown of vitamin C and ensure optimal absorption.
Voted the most popular supplement of 2019, turmeric, curcuma, has numerous health-promoting properties. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties and counteracts inflammation-related pain; helps burn fat; is appropriate for maintaining healthy joint function; benefits the nervous system, vision and cardiovascular system; and supports the immune system. Turmeric curcuminoids are often thought to be powerful antioxidants that keep cells healthy and protected from free radicals, but strictly speaking, the opposite is true. Curcuminoids are more precisely considered health-promoting stressors, that is, hormetic substances. Through hormetic incentives the body becomes healthier and more resilient.
How does fermentation work?
New Chapter uses a unique two-step method for fermentation. First, an organic yeast (the probiotic saccharomyces cerevisiae ) is mixed with natural carbohydrates derived from plants. Then the right vitamins and minerals are added. To further stimulate fermentation, organic, non-GMO soy and unprocessed whole foods including alfalfa, carrot and orange peel are added.
The yeast undergoes a biotransformation by absorbing the vitamins and minerals into its structure. Next, tropical fruit is added to the fermentate to slow down the fermentation process. To complete the process, the probiotic strains of bacteria L. acidophilus, B. bifidum and L. rhamnosus are added under conditions of gentle heating.
The advantage of fermentation
New Chapter supplements are fermented with whole foods. With a unique two-step method, New Chapter adds vitality to its vitamins, minerals and herbs. At the same time, it ensures that New Chapter supplements are easy to digest and suitable for use at any time of day, even on an empty stomach. At the same time you get to enjoy a nutrient-filled fermentate with many beneficial properties, including cholesterol-lowering beta glucans.
What are beta glucans?
Glucans are chains of glucose that occur in the cell walls of plants and belong to the carbohydrates. There are different types of glucans; well-known are, for example, starch and cellulose. Glucans are found in yeasts and mushrooms and in grains, such as oats. Scientific research shows that oat beta-glucans lower cholesterol. Research has also been done into the effect of glucans on the immune system as the body sees some beta-glucans from yeast and mushrooms as 'foreign'. The immune system is activated by such foreign substances.
