Many people consider probiotics to be a one-size-fits-all supplement, without really considering the details of what is inside the product. It can be difficult to separate the marketing hype from the real health benefits– with so many products filling the shelves, advertising that they contain the “largest number of strains”, or the “highest number of bacteria units”, and other claims that are made more for shock-and-awe marketing value rather than any meaningful scientific merit.
The reality is that we are not all created equal, and therefore our dietary supplements should be chosen to match the needs of the individual. It is true that for many people, a comprehensive probiotic will meet their needs perfectly well. In the case of Natren’s probiotic lineup, Healthy Trinity is our most popular and convenient probiotic. It is highly potent, containing over 30 billion colony forming units (CFUs) of three different targeted strains of probiotic bacteria. For many of our customers, the convenience of a single-capsule probiotic, combined with this quantity of bacteria is an excellent solution for keeping their digestive system in great shape.
Too Much Of A Good Thing
There are cases where too much of a good thing can be troublesome. For some people, especially for those with digestive sensitivities, a powerful probiotic with too much potency can be like a fire-hose to the digestive system.
That is why Natren developed the Healthy Start System – a set of 3 different probiotics consisting of each of the proven bacterial strains found in our flagship Healthy Trinity capsules, but available in a more customizable form that can be combined to suit your needs. Our customers find that flexible layering of each probiotic type gives them the ability to tailor their intake to give them just the right amount of potency CFUs, and the right mixture of probiotic strains.
Targeted Probiotics For Different Needs
The different probiotic strains in the Healthy Start System are specially selected to serve different purposes:
The Healthy Start System is available in both dairy-based, and vegan kits, to allow you to choose which system is right for you. The system is available in both capsules and powders, allowing you to have complete control over the amount of the bacteria you use, so you can begin and maintain your plan as your body responds. People with more severe sensitivities enjoy the powdered form which allows them to start with the smallest dose possible and work their way up to a larger dose as they are individually able to do so.
By kicking off your plan with smaller amounts of the bacteria, even those with the most sensitive digestive systems can get started with probiotics without worrying about any unpleasant effects that can accompany a sudden change in your diet.

We often get asked when is the best time to take probiotics – morning, evening, before or after food. Taking probiotics at any time is better than not taking them at all, of course, but taking probiotics at the right time can optimize the health benefits of this supplement. Staying on a regular routine can be difficult for some people, as hectic lifestyles can make it hard to do anything at the same time each day. Other people take so many medications that they simply add probiotics to the handful of pills they already take, with little regard as to.... [Read More...]
