NATASHA TRENEV, Founder, Natren, Inc. With a 750-year history in cultured beneficial bacteria, Natasha Trenev’s family produced legendary yogurt prized by the royal family of Yugoslavia. She and her parents immigrated to the United States in the 1950s where her father founded Continental Culture Specialists. Following graduation from UCLA, Natasha began to work for the family business full time in 1970. There, she learned about the power of beneficial bacteria.

She and her husband, Yordan Trenev, founded Natren, Inc. in 1982 and introduced the probiotic category to the Health Food Industry in North America. They began with the first true acidophilus supplement, Megadophilus. Since then, her business has grown to be the recognized world leader in probiotics, producing the highest-quality products on the market and setting the gold standard that every other product is measured by.

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria supplements that offer health benefits to the consumer and are considered by scientists and medical professionals as the natural medicine of the future. These health benefits include improved digestion, nutrient absorption and overall health and wellness. Probiotics also help to alleviate gas, bloating, elimination problems, atopic allergies and other health conditions. Natren probiotics are proven effective against yeast overgrowth (Candida infections) through clinical trials at Yale University School of Nursing, New Haven, Connecticut, and at University of California, Davis.

Natasha is an expert in probiotics featured on educational television and radio programs nationwide. She is also a developmental scientist who has also authored three authoritative books on the subject of probiotics. She wrote Probiotics in 1990 along with Leon Chaitow. In 1998, Natasha wrote the definitive book on probiotics titled Probiotics: Nature’s Internal Healers. Her newest book, written in 2006 and titled The Power of Probiotics: Secrets to Great Health, is an easy-to-read guide to probiotics and is the first in a series of Probiotic Health Guides.
