FAQ About Natren Probiotics
1. What are the differences between Trenev Trio and the Healthy Start Kit?
Trenev Trio and the Healthy Start Kit provide the same beneficial bacteria. Trenev Trio is our most potent product. It combines the three most powerful super strains of probiotics in one convenient capsule. The Healthy Start Kit is a box containing three bottles, each one with a different, gentle dose of one probiotic super strain.
2. What are the differences between powdered probiotics and capsules?
The capsules contain the same freeze-dried probiotics as the powders. The powders allow you to use the amount you desire and are better suited for people who have trouble swallowing capsules. The capsules offer the convenience of a pre-measured dose. Individual preference is the determining factor in selecting which one is right for you.
3. How long should a baby take Life Start?
Life Start is the preferred, specially formulated probiotic for infants and toddlers up to the age of four. It can be used successfully by people of all ages who have a hyperactive immune system, or were born by Cesarean Section or were not breast-fed. If you want dairy free, use Bifido Factor Dairy Free Powder.
4. Why do the products need to be refrigerated?
Like all living creatures, probiotics need to be protected from harsh environments. Their life-spans are diminished by heat, light and moisture. Natren products are shipped in dark glass bottles with tin lids to protect them from harmful light and moisture. They are shipped with refrigeration to keep them cool and extend their lives so they have guaranteed potency through the printed expiration date. Without such care and a guarantee, you may be wasting your money.
5. How much is too much of a good thing?
Natren supplements are safe at any level. You can combine various products and increase the dosage until you achieve the desired results.
6. If a probiotic is cultured on goats’ milk, is that dairy free because it doesn’t come from cows?
Goats’ milk is still considered a dairy product; however, some people with sensitive digestive systems find it easier to digest. If you are allergic to milk protein, please consult your healthcare practitioner before using a product containing goats’ milk.
7. Do your products contain gluten?
All Natren probiotic supplements are free from gluten and gluten derivatives.
8. Why does Natren recommend the use of unchilled, filtered (chlorine-free) water with their products and not ordinary tap water?
Tap water often contains chlorine or fluoride with pesticide residues and other undesirable chemicals. Since chlorine and fluoride are used to destroy harmful bacteria, these chemicals will harm the beneficial bacteria as well, thereby diminishing the positive effects.
