This post about natural and herbal supplements is written in partnership with New Chapter, Vermont-based maker of whole-food vitamins and supplements. However, all opinions are my own. I only work with and recommend companies whose products I love, and I’m so excited to share these with you!
As a Holistic Nutritionist, I know my Vitamins A to K as well as I know my A to Z! But when it comes to herbal supplements, I take the lead from my friends at New Chapter and their team of expert herbalists. I love that whilst herbal remedies have been used for centuries in traditional medicine, clinical studies are now showing the scientific evidence to corroborate their benefits. Personally I have noticed the energy boosting, stress relieving benefits from adding them into my daily supplement routine.
I like all of my clients to take a daily multivitamin (I like New Chapter’s One Daily Multivitamin for Women) to ensure optimum health. Now I recommend that they pair this with a multiherbal, a blend of different herbs in a single supplement. Combining it with a multivitamin boosts the efficacy of the multiherbal, and provides its own, autonomous health benefits.
A great place to start is with New Chapter’s One Daily Multiherbal Holistic, which contains clinically studied herbs that boost whole-body wellness. It supports both mind and body as it contains Black Seed (Nigella) which boosts cognitive function, brain health and memory, and can relieve occasional stress and anxiety. Antioxidant rich Ginger and Turmeric also aid a healthy inflammatory response.*
You can also take herbal supplements to target specific areas of your wellness, such as energy, anxiety, and sleep.
I love to find ways to boost my energy without consuming sugar or caffeine (both of which cause hormonal spikes and crash that can be challenging to our adrenal and thyroid health). That’s why I’ve added One Daily Multiherbal Energy Boost to my morning supplement regime.
It supports both short term and long term energy production. This is achieved through the considered blend of vitality boosting Cordyceps mushroom, plant based Eleuthero (that enhances energy even at times of exhaustion), and adaptogens Rhodiola and Maca that support the HPA axis (hypothalamic pituitary adrenal – our body’s central stress response system) when it encounters stress.
One of my clients’ most common questions is ‘which supplements can I take for stress relief?’’ My number one recommendation is New Chapter’s One Daily Multiherbal Stress Relief.
This blend of clinically studied herbs supports the body’s response to both physical and mental stress. It features patented Sensoril® Ashwagandha, a powerful adaptogen derived from both the leaves and roots of the plant, increasing efficacy and bioactive diversity. This is combined with calming black seed and adrenal health supporting Organic Reishi and Holy Basil.*
You can take New Chapter’s One Daily Multiherbal Stress Relief at any time of the day. Personally I take mine in the late afternoon as part of my ‘wind-down routine’.
Restful, restorative sleep is key to a healthy body and mind. New Chapter’s One Daily Multiherbal Sleep Well contains everything you need for healthy sleep.
Tart Cherry increases both sleep time and the amount of time spent in the most restorative sleep stage. It also contains naturally occurring melatonin which enables restful sleep. Stress relieving Ashwagandha and traditionally soothing and calming Chamomile and Passionflower balance out this sleep promoting blend.*
I keep mine on my bedside table and take it just before I start to read every night as part of my night time routine. I fall asleep typically 20 minutes later, just like clockwork!
