Natren®'s Healthy Start System® takes probiotic supplements to the next level of effectiveness with a simplified system that is both easy to use and understand. Healthy Start System® contains all three of the most potent super strains of beneficial bacteria: Lactobacillus acidophilus, NAS adhesion super strain; adult specific Bifidobacterium bifidum, Malyoth super strain; and Lactobacillus bulgaricus LB-51 champion transient super strain. The Healthy Start System® Tripack contains 3 bottles (30 capsules in each bottle). This system ensures the live bacteria microorganisms survive exposure to the stomach's gastric juices, thus offering maximum benefits to the small and large intestines. The Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Bifidobacterium bifidum is extracted from the growth medium and packaged into capsules.
Ingredients: Lactobacillus acidophilus, NAS adhesion super strain, 2 billion cfu per capsule; adult specific Bifidobacterium bifidum, Malyoth super strain, 2 billion cfu per capsule; and Lactobacillus bulgaricus LB-51 champion transient super strain, 2 billion cfu per capsule.
Supplement Facts: Please see the secondary product image above.
Usage instructions: Healthy Start probiotic capsules can be swallowed as is, or opened up and the powders mixed together in approximately 4 oz. of room temperature, filtered (unchlorinated) water. The probiotics are formulated to be taken approximately 20 to 30 minutes before meals to enhance digestion, but may be taken at any time. If you are experiencing stomach upset, the mixture may be sipped throughout the day. Both probiotic capsules and powders should be taken at least 2 hours after consuming herbs (i.e., garlic and echinacea) and prescription drugs such as antibiotics. Some herbs, and all antibiotics, will eliminate not only undesirable, but beneficial bacteria as well. Powders can be mixed in water (ideal), yoghurt, milk or diluted apple or pear juice.

Probiotics are one of the most important components for healing your IBS or IBD and then ensuring you stay healed! For full therapeutic benefits of probiotics, clinical trials show you need to consume 7 to 10 billion cfu per day (of EACH species of good bacteria). So check the bottle and be sure you’re consuming enough each day to see the desired results.
Capsules or Powders?
Take the probiotic powder if you’re experiencing diarrhea (or more than 3 bowel movements per day), heartburn, or upper gastrointestinal problems.
If your bowel movements are normal or constipated, you can take the probiotic capsules, if you prefer. The regular capsules (Megadophilus, Bifido Factor, Digesta-Lac) also contain the beneficial growth medium (or supernatent).
The Healthy Trinity capsules do not contain much supernatent, but contain much higher amounts of bacteria per dose. They are enteric-coated, so they will not dissolve in the stomach, and they are also dairy-free.
Natasha Trenev (founder of Natren) recommends probiotic layering as the most effective way to flood the GI tract with good bacteria: Take at least 1 tsp. of each powder, 3x/day plus, 1 Healthy Trinity capsule, once per day. For detailed information on probiotic layering, check out our in-depth Probiotics 1 Teleseminar with me interviewing Natasha Trenev and then our answering 45 minutes of questions from participants.
If you're interested in doing Jini's Probiotic Retention Enema, instructions are in any of my digestive healing books.
Natren formulations are classified in the following way: You can get the powders and capsules in dairy-based or dairy-free formulas. If you’re just testing and don’t know which you need, then start with one of the Tripacks – the bottles are quite small. Once you know which formulation suits your system best, you may want to buy the largest size bottle of each – since it’s the best deal for your money.
I highly recommend you listen to our in-depth Probiotics 1 Teleseminar with Natren founder, Natasha Trenev. This will help you to get the best results from your probiotic dose and use.
How Much Should I Order?
The length of time a bottle of probiotics lasts depends on the dosage. For the powdered probiotics, there are 6 teaspoons in 1 ounce. Therefore, there are 27 teaspoons in the large 4.5 oz bottle. So, if you are taking the high dose of 3 teaspoons per day (12 billion cfu per day), the 4.5 oz bottle would last 9 days.
If you take the minimum therapeutic probiotic dose of 2 teaspoons per day (8 billion cfu), the 4.5 oz bottle would last 13 days.
If you take the maintenance dose of 1/2 teaspoon per day, the 4.5 oz bottle would last 54 days.
I've tried many varieties, but this is the best probiotic I have ever used. I use it in conjunction with Oil of Oregano. The oil kills all the bad stuff and the Natren Healthy Trinity puts all the good stuff back in. I am also grateful that LTYG ships this refrigerated!
Dear LTYG, I first tried the Healthy Start system (dairy free) probiotics in the capsules for my daughter.They seemed to work good, except I found I needed to cut back or start real low on the #3 Digesta-Lac for her. Then after I ran out of #1 and #2, I wanted to order more but didn't want to end up having an abundance of #3 left over. So Cris suggested I buy the powders (with dairy) in the bottles. I ordered them. However I want to point out that the powders tend to be messy, it's hard to measure them accurately each time, they're hard to transport to another town, and I didn't know that the lactose was not removed from the powders. But good news is - I just found a way around some of the problem by discovering a bag of "Empty Gel Capsules" sold at a health food store, so now I just easily take a spoon & fill the empty caps, and VOILA' there we have our probiotics back in capsule form!! The bag of gel caps are sold by "Solaray" Size 0
I have never felt better. This product works great. Very effective probiotics!
These probiotics worked great for me. The oil capsules were too strong, so I switched to the powders. For me, they've been very soothing in the gut even during times of inflammation. I've found they clear pathogens and add beneficial flora without a herx reaction.
Taking the Natren Healthy Start System Tripack probiotics couple with the Joy of the Mountain Wild Oil of Oregano, my bleeding stopped in less than a week. My severe pain was gone on my left side within two weeks. Within five weeks, I was completely regular with no diarrhea. I have been suffering since 2004 for nothing. I will not take anymore drugs to treat my colitis. The medical establishment with their prescription drugs was a complete failure and sadly it took too many years of suffering to find this out. If you are on the fence about trying this program you should absolutely reconsider.
Been on these for a few days and already noticing a shift in my digestive health. So far, so good!
