About Nuzest

The people and the story behind Nuzest, nutrition for life

Our Story

Our 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.

Our Journey

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 Products

Nuzest products are designed to fill the nutritional gaps caused by nutrient-deficient food, stressful lifestyles and poor eating habits.

Our unique formulas 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 formulas 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.

Our Philosophy

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 is independently tested before it gets to you.

I really love your protein powder. It has made a huge difference to my performance as a elite squash player. For years I have struggled with severe stomach issues and have only recently in the last 10 months found out that I am Gluten, dairy, sugar and fat intolerant. I still struggle to eat most forms of protein. However this product has been really fundamental in my ability to get back to playing the sport I love.

I can honestly say Nuzest Clean Lean Protein is the best protein I've ever had! Being a member of the Canadian National Hockey Team is a huge honour but it comes with a vigorous training schedule, so making sure we replenish our bodies with the right foods and proteins after a workout is crucial. For me this has always been a challenge as I am gluten/lactose/ and egg intolerant, so finding the right protein powder is always difficult - until I found Nuzest! Nuzest's Clean Lean Protein comes in amazing flavours, is all natural, and free of all the things my body rejects! NuZest has made my life as an athlete so much easier and I couldn't be happier with it! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Nuzest!!

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!
