Think Local, Buy Locally Grown

October 09, 2017

Known as the probiotic & health pioneer, Natren is proud to launch the “Locally Grown” campaign, designed to educate consumers about their products and the vast wealth of healthy food options grown right in their community. “With the ‘Locally-Grown’ campaign, we aim to teach local consumers about our probiotics, which are cultivated, manufactured and shipped out of our Westlake Village pharmaceutically-certified manufacturing plant,” explains Natasha Trenev, our founder and President. Other probiotic companies tend to cultivate their products overseas, but that’s not the Natren way. Our facility and all our operations have been located in Westlake Village, California just north.... [Read More...]

A Letter from our President & Founder

A Letter from our President & Founder

June 27, 2016

Dear Friends, I am continually asked why I get so upset when I hear interviews on probiotics or when I see probiotic products on the shelf or advertised on the internet. I get upset because virtually all the individuals who claim to have knowledge of probiotics are ignorant of the probiotic labeling standard that was passed by the entire membership of the National Nutritional Foods Association (which is now the Natural Products Association) in 1989 and further submitted to be read into congressional record in 1995 as our industry’s fiduciary promise to self-regulate. Unfortunately, our industry chooses to ignore the.... [Read More...]

Human Strains, Yogurt Strains? Where Did this Bacteria Come From?

November 16, 2015

Human Strain Probiotics Over the years, we’ve received many emails from our customers asking just about every question under the sun with regards to probiotics (keep them coming, we’re happy to help you!). Very recently, one of our customers wrote in asking us to explain the meaning of Human Strain Probiotics, what are the sources of Natren probiotics and particularly, where are they cultured?   She was deeply concerned with contamination and even more troubled that the strains may have been cultured from human sources.

Do Your Probiotics Survive Shipping, Storage and Stomach Acid?

Do Your Probiotics Survive Shipping, Storage and Stomach Acid?

July 27, 2015

We talk a lot about what’s in our products (carefully selected super strains of beneficial bacteria) and what’s not in our probiotic products (No GMO’s, No FOS, Soy Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free Options, etc) but today we want to talk about how we handle our probiotics and why that’s unique. Probiotics are living bacteria, and like most bacteria, they can be severely weakened or killed by prolonged exposure to moisture or heat. That’s a big problem, because although we take every step necessary to ensure that the probiotics are kept at the optimum temperature and humidity during production and.... [Read More...]
