Thank to New Chapter for sponsoring today’s episode. You’ve heard me at length chat about why I love New Chapter’s multivitamin, prenatal vitamin and postnatal vitamin. Multivitamins support your foundational health with vital vitamins and minerals. But what’s so amazing is that New Chapter has also formulated a multiherbal for you, think of these as your multivitamin soul mates to add targeted herbal support. 
There are four multiherbal options for you to choose from, one for holistic health, one to power up, one for restful nights and one to de-stress. 
Take One Daily Multiherbal Holistic, made with black seed, turmeric and ginger. Clinically studied Black Seed has been shown to support healthy cognitive function and memory while relieving occasional stress and anxiety to uplift mood. For heart and whole-body wellness, Ginger and Turmeric support healthy inflammation response and cardiovascular health.*
Or the Only Daily Multiherbal Energy Boost, made to increase energy and stamina. This multiherbal blend is caffeine-free and made with Eleuthero to invigorate the body and enhance energy and endurance even during times of high stress.
