The people and the story behind Nuzest, nutrition for life
Our StoryOur story began in 2005 when my 23 year old daughter was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis – an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system for which modern medicine is yet to find a cure.
Not satisfied with the bleak prognosis we were given we looked to experts all over the world for advice - from neurologists and scientists, to naturopaths and everyone in between.
The knowledge and insight we gained over those years was life changing. It resulted in careers in the health industry for both of us and planted the seeds for what is now Nuzest – Nutrition for Life.
In our travels we were introduced to Dr Robert Verkerk PhD, founder and director of The Alliance for Natural Health International (ANH-Intl); and his business partner, psychoneuroimmunologist and functional medicine practitioner, Meleni Aldridge.
We connected them with top naturopaths Cliff Harvey (New Zealand practitioner, author and lecturer) and Kira Sutherland (head of Nutritional Medicine at Australia’s Nature Care College).
Together with this team of global industry leaders, we have developed Nuzest - a nutritional platform based on efficacy without compromise; bringing together the best of nutritional science and natural medicine.
Our unique formulae are some of the most advanced nutritional supplements on the market – every ingredient, and every form of ingredient, backed by a sound scientific rationale. Our formulae are regularly reviewed and improved upon to ensure Nuzest products are always aligned with the most up to date research and information.
So welcome to Nuzest – and a new approach to feeling great.
At Nuzest, we believe in making good nutrition easy for everyone. We only use top quality, responsibly-sourced ingredients. In fact, we like to think that we make the kind of choices you’d make for yourself.
Knowledge about human nutrition is constantly evolving, so coming up with an effective formulation once and letting it run just isn’t good enough. We challenge ourselves to continually improve our supplements so that we produce outstanding nutritional products – time after time.
We like to keep things real, so our products are based on real foods that are rich in nutrients and essential vitamins and minerals. Once sourced, these ingredients are carefully handled to retain all of their goodness. You can relax knowing that every batch of Good Green Stuff and Clean Lean Protein, Quick Vita Kick, Good Green Snack bar and Just Fruit & Veg is independently tested before it gets to you.
I have two young boys so breakfast time is always crazy. I've been having Clean Lean Protein for breakfast for five weeks now (and sometimes for dinner when I'm feeling lazy), not only am I fuller for longer and have more energy but have lost 5 kilos! I have tried most of the protein powders in the market and this doesn't make me feel bloated or clogged. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to feel fuller for longer, healthier and lose weight along the way!

As an elite plant-based athlete, it has been hard to find a protein that stays clear of all the unwanted ingredients in proteins until I found Nuzest. The Clean Lean Protein has great flavors, with all natural ingredients and most importantly high protein content. I can simply mix Nuzest with water for a quick protein replenish after practice/game or I can mix it with overnight oats for a yummy breakfast. I take my Nuzest protein with me everywhere and I couldn't be more happy with it.
As an elite runner, I am focused on performance, and fueling my body is a key component. Part of fueling is also recovering, and I have yet to find a product as effective, nutritious, and delicious as Nuzest. I need a product that works as long and hard as I do, and Nuzest has surpassed my expectations. Clean Lean Protein is a part of my daily routine and its versatility allows me to enjoy it post-workout, as a protein-packed snack, and even baked with desserts. It's a tasty indulgence that's actually healthy and never regrettable.
