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 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.

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, Clean Lean Protein and Kids Good Stuff are independently tested before they get to you.

I've been taking some form of powdered veggie supplement for years now. The idea of a multi-vitamin to ensure optimal health always seemed like a good idea in theory, but I could never quite grasp how a company could squeeze so many things into a little brown pill and have them all interact naturally in my body the way they were supposed to. Even though most veggie powders tasted like ground up grass clippings, I gagged them down every day in order to get more of a real and less processed serving of healthy micronutrients. Luckily for me the team at Nuzest have now come up with a product: Good Green Stuff that not only has the best quality ingredients, but one that tastes amazing as well. I chuck it in smoothies, or it's just fine on its own.

I love all NuZest products and what it has to offer. I'm an athlete, so what I put in my body I make sure is the best so I can perform week in week out. NuZest offers me that. My favourite is Clean Lean Protein (Smooth Vanilla flavour) before and after training, or if I need a top up snack, this is my go to!

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the protein shipment and good green stuff AND 2 shakers - you can seriously never have enough as athletes! It is such a huge help towards my training and keeping me recovered properly over the next phase between World Cups and World Champs racing in Europe.
I just wanted to drop a line to you all for making it all happen, truly incredible especially at such short notice. I am blown away! THANK YOU!!!
