Welcome to Probiotics NZ.
Some days we have a few signs of the warmer spring weather that will be coming soon. However the winter viruses are still looming, and we find that they are usually active through until late October. It is our recommendation to take a probiotic each day for protection and to build up your immunity. Increasing your beneficial bacteria is useful for more than just winter ailments- the good bacteria help eczema, psoriasis, hay fever, allergies, vomiting, diarrhoea, thrush, candida, reflux, indigestion, IBS, shingles and more.
I recommend the book "Grain Brain" by Dr Perlmutter: The surprising truth about wheat, carbs and sugar- your brains silent killers. You can read about it in our section under "Books"
Taking a probiotic every day helps build up your levels of friendly bacteria. This improves your immunity to infections and viruses. On the topic of viruses, here is a quote from a book "Why Aren't We Dead Yet?" by Idan Ben-Barak, microbiologist. Viruses aren't cells: "They're essentially just clever bits of genetic material wrapped in a protein coating, and in order to breed they have to enter a host cell and take it over from the inside, forcing it to abandon its regular role and turning it into a virus-producing factory"
We are often asked which Natren probiotic is the strongest and the most potent. Natren's Trenev Trio capsules contain 30 billion cfu of friendly bacteria and is the strongest.
Here are some testimonials from Natren customers about Trenev Trio capsules:
"I love Natren's Trenev Trio. It was the only thing that helped my digestive system. My sister who is also a doctor suggested I eat yoghurt but when I explained to her I was already doing that she said I could try a probiotic. I looked into Natren as I had heard about it, checked with my local health food store, and they agreed it was the best they knew of. That made it an easy choice. The worst issues were resolved in about a month. It took about a year before I was able to eat everything I was able to eat before. I tried off and on not taking Natren but I noticed some foods were still causing problems. Problems that went away when I took Trenev Trio. Because I have my life back I am looking forward to travelling."
"I developed lactose intolerance as a middle aged adult. I tried possibly every product on the market and ultimately discovered Natren's Trenev Trio. This product changed my life and my social life! It is miraculous. Over the years, I have suggested it to other friends who have thanked me profusely and also raved about their experience with this product."
"I have been using Trenev Trio for a few years now and I am extremely pleased with the reliability of the products, dedication of the Natren Company to produce and support a fine product. A rarity these days. Natren clearly believes in what they do, their products and caring about their customers."
Here are the top 10 reasons to use Natren Probiotics: Because these reasons are so important, we have listed them right here so you won't have to search any further....
WHY NATREN PROBIOTICS?
TOP 10 REASONS
100% POTENCY GUARANTEED
Natren guarantees 100% colony forming units (cfu) potency through the printed expiration date (not just at time of manufacture). Natren's probiotics are carefully produced using the proprietary Trenev Process®, preserved within the probiotic's natural supernatant. Natren's 3-in-1 capsule (Trenev Trio) also contains a proprietary oil matrix for maximum intestinal delivery. All of Natren's probiotics are packaged into amber glass bottles and continuously refrigerated to provide extended cfu potency.*
GOOD MANUFACTURING PRACTICES CERTIFIED BY A THIRD PARTY INTERNATIONAL AGENCY
Natren's products meet the highest international standards for quality, safety and manufacturing protocols. Natren's facilities and operations have received International Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) Certification by Australia's Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).* TGA is a signatory to the Pharmaceutical Inspection Convention (PIC) and the Pharmaceutical Inspection co-operation Scheme (PIC Scheme). PIC guarantees that the member governments' regulatory agencies are enforcing standards that have been mutually endorsed and recognized by the member nations. When a manufacturer is audited by a third-party government agency, the International cGMP certification assures the customer that the label declarations have been independently validated.
CLINICAL TRIAL RESEARCH
Natren's probiotic products come with 30 years of focused, rigorous scientific research and technology from leading scientists and researchers in the field of probiotics. Natren researchers have conducted and published a number of peer-reviewed clinical and laboratory studies on probiotic viability and application over these decades. Currently, Natren is collaborating with several physicians on the applications of its probiotics in a variety of clinical studies.
NO ARTIFICIAL COLORS OR GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS
Natren's probiotic supplements are made from only natural ingredients; without genetically modified organisms (GMOs), soil-based organisms, hormones, artificial colours, or FOS (Fructooligosaccharides). Natren's proprietary Trenev Process® preserves the probiotics in their own natural supernatant to keep the probiotics healthy and viable. This intrinsic supernatant also provides nutritional support for the probiotics.*
THREE DECADES OF LABORATORY RESEARCH
Natren's probiotic super-strains and formulations have undergone three decades of independent laboratory culturing and testing; resulting in some of the strongest and most powerful strains available. Bile tolerance and stomach acid survival tests have been conducted on each strain, and independent laboratories have confirmed Natren's testing. Key super-strains produced by Natren include the only Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1 strain independently verified to be the strain isolated and tested by Dr. Shahani; the NAS super strain that integrates within the small intestines; the Bifidobacterium bifidum Malyoth super strain that encourages large intestine wellness; the Lactobacillus bulgaricus LB-51 super strain that assists digestive functions throughout the entire intestinal tract; and the LIFE START® bacteria, Bifidobacterium infantis NLS.*
RESEARCH, FORMULATION & PRODUCTION IN THE USA
Unlike the many brands that contract manufacture their probiotics elsewhere, Natren is an experienced probiotic manufacturer that produces its probiotic supplements in its own state-of-the-art production facility in Westlake Village, California, USA. This pharmaceutical-grade product facility maintains a proprietary full-culture and freezedrying process to preserve and nourish vigorous beneficial probiotics.*
THE PROBIOTIC SPECIALIST
Probiotics are ALL we do. Natren's seasoned technicians and management have hands-on control over Natren's probiotic products, with a level of focus and expertise that can only come with nearly three decades of continuous probiotics cultivation and production. With this focus comes a special care and determined innovation to deliver the most remarkable probiotic products available.*
CONVENIENCE & RELIABILITY
Natren has developed a variety of formulations and delivery systems. Natren's formulations target specific areas or the entire digestive tract, and utilize different strains for different purposes. Natren offers its variety of probiotic formulations in a host of innovative delivery systems, including powders, capsules, and even yogurt starter.
SAFETY, VALUE & CUSTOMER SATISFACTION
For over 30 years, Natren's probiotics have been shown to be safe and have not produced significant side-effects when administered in large quantities. Natren uses only lactic acid probiotic strains that have been used in fermented foods for centuries. Probiotics have been safely consumed by humans for thousands of years. Fermented foods have been associated with health and longevity amongst those societies that consumed them regularly.*
AUTHENTIC, GENUINE & PASSIONATE
Natasha Trenev's family introduced natural Bulgarian style yogurt and liquid acidophilus to the United States in the mid 1960's. Prior to World War II the family business was the official probiotic supplier to King Peter II of Yugoslavia. Each and every Natren product is infused with this healthy tradition and knowledge of beneficial bacteria. With this rich tradition also comes the ability to empower consumers with the wisdom of how to incorporate probiotics into their lives in the healthiest and most beneficial manner.*
Serious probiotics for people who take their health seriously.
World Renowned Probiotic Expert, Professor Gregor Reid agrees with Natasha’s (CEO of Natren) long standing premise that multi-strain probiotics aren’t better than one, two or three strains.
• Probiota February 2014, Amsterdam - Professor Reid commented that little is known about the way different species of bacteria interact because some strains inhibit the activity of others when placed together.
• He stated that “The tendency is ‘let’s have 15 strains...let’s have 28 billion’, “you’ve got to know what they’re doing. Are they really having an impact”.
He questions what is the point of putting them in the same container if the strains inhibit one another. • Professor Reid is one of the leading experts in the field of probiotics. He is a Professor at the University of Western Ontario, but more impressively he has been the chairperson of the United Nations World Health Organization Expert Panel and Working Group on Probiotics. Natren's Trenev Trio capsule is a matrix where the three types of bacteria are each separate so cannot compete with each other.
We still have some stock left of Yoghurt Starter which is short dated stock (use by date 15/11/13) - our price has been reduced so if you have not made yoghurt before it is a good time to try it out.

Pomi-T has arrived in New Zealand to Probiotics NZ Ltd . Four super foods squeezed into a capsule for a convenient way to boost your daily healthy polyphenols. Pomi-T has been scientifically tested in a national UK study. (The study was on prostate cancer). Pomi-T is the only available polyphenol rich food supplement which has been clinically evaluated in a double blind, placebo, controlled, government approved randomised trial adhering to EU Good Clinical Practice, ethical guidelines. For more trial details see: cancernet.co.uk/pomi-t-com. I greatly recommend Pomi-T as an important functional food.

Good science once again proves supernatant claims!
ü Natren’s L. acidophilus NAS super strain produces anti-bacterial components to inhibit undesirable bacteria which is a health benefit to individuals using Natren probiotic products which contain the supernatant
ü Natren’s probiotic bacteria are grown in a nutritionally balanced food base we call the supernatant
ü A special process known as mass spectrometry was used to identify special health promoting compounds found in the supernatant of Natren’s L. acidophilus NAS super strain.

With a strong NZ dollar we have been able to drop the price of our Natureworks Calendula range of creams from Germany so that is good. The first is Natureworks Calendula- cream and ointment from Germany. They are listed under Natureworks Calendula on this website.The cream is in a moisturising base- I use it as a face moisturiser and for any itches for my daughter. The ointment is in a lard base which is the most effective base for extracting calendula (Marigold). Can be used as an everyday first aid for bites, itches, stings, rashes, cracked nipples, nappy rash, cracked dry heels, cuts and sores that need healing.
Here at Probiotics NZ you will find very fine high quality probiotics manufactured by Natren.
A healthy intestinal function is critically important to overall health. Growing numbers of people lack vitality and suffer from complaints like allergies, headaches, lack of energy, excessive fatigue, digestive disorders, along with a variety of emotional states ranging from mild depression to mood swings and anxiety.
Our good bacteria help us digest our food in our stomach, produce natural moisturisers on our skin and synthesise our vitamins in our intestine. We have co-evolved with our bacterias in order to defend our bodies against pathogens. Researchers are aiming to find out what constitutes a healthy microbial community, and what happens when our microbial group is invaded by "bad" bacteria.
New research suggests that pathogenic (disease forming) bacteria may be implicated in a whole host of diseases, including obesity, heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's, arthritis, and autism.
"We may find that there are new links between the human microbiome (your good bacteria) and diseases that at present we don't think of having any underlying microbial component," says Claire Fraser-Liggett, Director of the Institute for Genome sciences at the University of Maryland.
All configurations of a persons flora are individualised. Some respond immediately to taking Natren probiotics and others take time. We are not controlling symptoms but rather positively changing the flora in each individual. Natren's formulations offer individual super strains which are made to target the small intestine, the large intestine and the transient flora. The different delivery systems (capsules, powders, oil matrix capsule) and growth mediums (dairy based or non-dairy based) provided by Natren are based on science not marketing hype. We are trying to change your microbiome (individual microbiological configuration- like a fingerprint - no two people's are the same). The time needed to see a result depends on the state of mind, the severitiy of the microbial disturbance, the genetic predisposition to the problem and not least a life style that may be further contributing to the problem. A definite life style factor is eating out at least once a day and not controlling the exposure to the possibility of encountering more undesirable microorganisms. Eating a diet high in simple carbohydrates (sugar and flour/starch etc) will definetly favour the growth of undesirable microorganisms. Therefore, it is important to control the quality of the probiotic supplement as that is the only way to gauge positive change.
Taking a probiotic daily can help get our bacterial communities back on the right track. Choose a probiotic that is an appropriate strain, that is alive and has its supernatant (growing medium) with it and of course is refrigerated.
Having trouble selecting the most appropriate probiotic for you? Contact Nicola with your symptoms and we can help.
To also help build your immunity with winter here, after taking your probiotic in the morning take Green Magma Tablets - they are a great source of energy- I start my day with Green Magma and again before lunch or mid afternoon. It helps to balance out the acid forming foods we eat, relieve stress and gives a lot more energy. Customers find they are not so hungry! It assists you when you are changing your diet eating less sugar and starch. Dr Hagiwara who developed Green Magma recommended it before bed to help get a good nights sleep.
