Supercritical Stress Advantage
...Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned... - The Second Coming, William Butler Yeats
There are times when we feel that "things fall apart" and our "centre cannot hold." Under stress, our primitive organs strain to protect us, and we prime for flight or fight. That was what the jungle needed, and that was fine when our lives were brief. Now, we live to old age in cities and towns, there is no place to run to escape from the stress, and our bodies cannot adapt and endure. Our adrenal glands burn, our hearts race, our immune systems collapse, and we struggle.
But there are herbal friends we can turn to for constant support. Some come from China, others from India, Indonesia, or Russia, and their strength is in giving us strength. Core strength. The strength and silence of a confident warrior elegantly poised for battle. The herbs in Supercritical Stress Advantage have been used for millennia by women and men under stress, to prepare them for the ultimate challenge – to create a dignified life well lived.
With confidence in the power of these herbs, and with pride in their potency and purity, New Chapter offers to you the wisdom of Supercritical Stress Advantage.
Schizandra: The berries of this vine are prized for enhancing physical and mental endurance and optimizing normal detoxification mechanisms. Considered the “Emperor's Herb” in ancient China, its five flavors represent the five elemental energies of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
American Ginseng: Most prized ginseng of the U.S., rich in a specific balance of ginsenosides (Rb1:Rg1) to gain that crucial advantage over stressful events.
Eleuthero: Contains constituents called eleutherosides that encourage balanced adrenal gland function and enhanced immune system intelligence.
Rhodiola: A rich source of salidrosides categorized by Russian researchers as an adaptogen possessing profound cardioprotective properties.
Curcuma Xanthorrhiza: Rich in xanthorrhizol known for promoting a healthy inflammation response. A foundation herb of Jamu, Indonesia's traditional medical system.
Galanga: Extract long revered for its ability to enhance sexual performance, soothe the digestive system and in modern research to reduce oxidative stress. A foundation herb of Jamu.
Turmeric: The world's most important herb supporting cardiovascular and detoxification systems under conditions of stress.
Astragalus: Ancient Chinese herb valued for its ability to strengthen the cardiovascular and immune systems during periods of stress.
Ginger: Supports normal cardiovascular function, contains numerous natural inflammation modulating constituents and improves the formulation's bioavailability.

Do any of your products contain dairy? The only New Chapter product that contains dairy is Probiotic Immunity. The form of dairy in this product is probiotically cultured organic milk which is similar to yogurt or kefir.
Can I take New Chapter products if I am also taking prescription medications? New Chapter cannot provide information about combining prescription medicines with herbal or nutritional supplements. New Chapter suggests you always advise your prescribing physician or pharmacist about the use of dietary or herbal supplements. Only he or she can determine the risk for herb-drug interactions and supervise your response to the prescribed therapy. You may also want to consider consulting a qualified expert in herbal and nutritional therapy on this matter. While herbal medicine has experienced a long history of safe use, this history has not included many of the modern pharmaceutical medications that are frequently used today. By making your health care provider aware of your supplement regimen, you are protecting yourself from any known potential interactions and allowing for any future information on this topic to come to light.
Do I need to refrigerate New Chapter's products containing live probiotics: Berry Green, Probiotic Colon, Probiotic All-Flora, Probiotic Immunity, Probiotic Anti-Aging, and Probiotic Cleanse? NOT UNTIL AFTER THESE PRODUCTS HAVE BEEN OPENED, New Chapter's "live active culture" probiotics are designed to be shelf-stable in their growth medium and deliver the labeled potency of probiotic species for the life of the product. To maintain optimal effectiveness, they suggest refrigerating all live probiotics after opening and using them before the date on bottle.

I recommend this product!
This product worked well for me the first time I used it and have reordered it to continue the calming effects it has had on me. I have been diagnosed with adrenal fatigue and this is the one I chose to start with and shall continue to order it. I love New Chapter products for their purity and honesty in all of their products. I gave it a 4 because I think licorice root probably should be in the mix for adrenal support. Good luck.
