According to the Natren Healthy Trinity Probiotic reviews posted by customers, this is a great product.
Many stated that this is the best Probiotic product they have ever taken. To that end, for truly many, the product has helped to make digestive issues a thing of the past. Others simply note that they are very pleased with the results.
This Natren Healthy Trinity Probiotic review will be fully focused on finding what this supplement is truly about.
Hence, the idea is to be no extension of the manufacturer’s marketing or other similar nonsense. This is all going to be about what I feel is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. And we’ll do that in assessing for marketing, ingredients, side effects (additives), customer feedback, and pricing. We’ll do it the truth-seeking way.
Marketing | This Natren Probiotic Doesn’t Go Easy On Marketing
According to the manufacturer, Natren Healthy Trinity Probiotic is an amazing three-in-one probiotic product. They say this to be their most potent and popular supplement. Furthermore, each capsule is said to carry minimum of 30 billion CFU of super strains of beneficial bacteria. So, definitely promising right off the bat.
As for the product page, it feels quite brief. Which is rather refreshing after such supplements as the Bowtrol Probiotics (review) and the Dr. Ohhira Probiotics (review). That said, I wouldn’t say that this Natren thing goes easy on the marketing.
The thing that springs out immediately is the subscribe-and-save deal. To that end, it’s considerably more potent than many other Probiotics out there due to offering 20% off the price with the deal.
The supplement basically also offers free shipping, a money-back guarantee, and there are both testimonials and a section for Natren Healthy Trinity reviews.
As far as promised benefits, it’s much like the Healthy Origins Probiotic (review). Meaning, it’s one of those products that is not in our face at all.
It’s mostly just ramming about this notion of beneficial bacteria. The biggest thing to an actual benefit that they mention is this idea of the supplement being devoted to complete GI (namely, gastrointestinal) health. Additionally, they make it about our digestive system working its best. But that’s kind of it.
Other than that, the Natren Healthy Trinity Probiotic is said to be Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, FOS-Free, and Dairy-Free. But then, it also costs $69.95 per month’s supply. So, is it genuinely worth it?
Ingredients | Frankly, I Don’t Really Enjoy The Idea Of Super Strains
Well, that’s a tricky question to answer just by the beneficial ingredients in this case. If we disregard the price completely, it does look pretty okay but I’m not a fan. I mean, from the bright side, I feel there are a few neat, rather unique things about it. But, realistically, it doesn’t look that great.
So, per serving (one capsule), the Natren Healthy Trinity offers 5 billion CFU of Lactobacillus acidophilus, 20 billion CFU of Bifidobacterium bifidum, and 5 billion CFU of Lactobacillus bulgaricus. Here’s to elaborate on all that.
First, the potency they promise to be the case until the date of expiry. So, given that the good bacteria typically diminish over time, we’re, realistically, looking at at least 30 Billion CFU. Which is a good thing. But I’m not huge on something entirely else with this.
They refer to all of these three strains as super strains. And while that is fine in of itself, I don’t like the vibe that the idea gives. I mean, to me, a super strain sounds like something really awesome, something others don’t do, something really, really valuable (even more so because with other Probiotic supplements we won’t typically find that expression).
And so, unintentionally (or intentionally as hell and it’s just marketing), we’re kind of led into believing that these strains are better than what other supplements typically offer. But, frankly, all three of them are extremely common with great Probiotics. Like extremely common. Especially those that offer at least 10 strains like the Gives Health Wholesome Probiotics (review) or the Purely Optimal Probiotics (review) [R, R, R, R, R].
So, the Natren Healthy Trinity with just these three strains isn’t particularly unique. But then, again, it kind specializes in offering these three and is doing so to ensure potent amounts that also correspond well with the best practices. Still, for the price, with just three of them, it feels like a straight-up rip-off to me personally [R, R, R, R, R].
And that’s despite the added layer of the thing also being third-party tested and them using some kind of patented cutting-edge probiotic science in the form of an oil-matrix system to supposedly improve the efficiency of the whole thing (the latter of these is basically just a validated protection mechanism to make sure those probiotics survive stomach acid) [R, R].
The fact that the supplement of this review doesn’t offer any Prebiotics I also see as a flaw. Because Prebiotics can properly augment the gains from Probiotics and only further improve our gut health [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Side Effects | To Review Additives, They’re Decent But Not Ideal
Side effects are typically the product of additives. And as it naturally is, that oil-matrix system asks for a rather unconventional set of additives when it comes to the given Probiotic supplement. To illustrate, we don’t ever find a set of these by such classic supplements as the Nutrition Now PB8 Probiotic (review) and Phillips’ Colon Health (review). Still, luckily, the additives in Natren Healthy Trinity are not bad. Mostly [R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
So, what are they?
The Natren thing uses Sunflower Oil, Gelatin, and Mixed Tocopherols.
Gelatin is basically Collagen. Both are essentially very helpful substances to consume. The only real drawback of it can come in the form of bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth. Other than that, even vegans should eat that stuff. It’s that healthy [R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Whereas Mixed Tocopherols are basically different shapes and sizes of vitamin E. Another extremely beneficial thing and an ideal choice for additives [R, R, R].
What I’m not so fond of is the Sunflower Oil.
Yes, there are some positive characteristics that it can bring to the table. You know, it can be helpful. But, generally speaking, it’s one of the cheapest and more revenue-oriented solutions when it comes to picking an oil, at least the way I see it. Olive oil, flaxseed oil, avocado oil are just some of the very many quality choices that they could replace it with [R, R, R, R, R, R].
Either way, Sunflower Oil is definitely something I wouldn’t perceive as a quality choice. And, the way I see it, this kind of just illustrates that despite the price, they kind of succumb to cost-saving over pure quality in certain aspects.
Reviews | The Supplement Gets Enough Of Not Great Customer Reviews
With Natren Healthy Trinity Probiotic, it’s what we commonly find with supplements. Absolutely biased customer feedback within its review section. You know, 301 Natren Healthy Trinity Probiotic reviews, all of which are basically positive (3-star or higher). Which would mean a 100% global success rate.
But is that the accurate feedback? Is that the truth?
Hunting for every single customer comment by all third-party sellers and retailers painted a picture that I do not believe is great. I mean, for the price, the global success rate is decently miserable, the way I see it.
So, out of the total of 339 Natren Healthy Trinity reviews that I managed to find, 235 were five-star, 32 were four-star, 22 were three-star, 14 I found to be two-star, and 36 of them were one-star. Or a positive-negative ratio of 289 vs 50.
Which, you know, isn’t great. Namely, that’s only about 85.0% global success rate. Granted, it is likely higher than that due people typically reporting negative experiences far more often but it’s still not very good. Not for that price.
On that note, the most common complaint category was the one related to shipping and packaging. Meaning, when it was promised to be sent with ice packs to preserve the live cultures, it often wasn’t. And people did not exactly appreciate it.
Then, of course, there were those that swore by this being the best one out there (but we get those people with every product). And then, of course, there were also those who felt ripped off because, despite the price tag, the supplement did not do anything for them.
Personally, as you can probably already tell, I would have expected a much higher success rate. That said, objectively, it probably would have been significantly higher if people were given what they were promised. Or in other words, if there were those promised ice packs with every shipment of the Healthy Trinity.
But I guess we should not hold that against the manufacturer. Because this second-hand type of shipping wasn’t their doing. It was that of the other resellers and on orders on platforms like Amazon.
So, it’s kind of a shame. But I feel it’s another one of those reasons why one should always get any supplement from the manufacturer, directly (at least whenever that is possible).
Pricing | An Incredibly Expensive Way Of Probiotics & A Crazy Price Tag
I feel I’ve mentioned price quite a bit throughout this review. But I truly believe it’s something that kind of defines this one. Because all that the Healthy Trinity of Natren offers is fine, decent, perfectly acceptable if it was for less money. But it isn’t. I mean, unless you managed to snag it off some crazy promotion or discount, I feel it’s difficult to find it cheaper than what the manufacturer offers.
So, a container of the supplement of this review is 30 capsules. Each of those capsules is at least 30 billion CFU which typically comes for $69.95. There’s the option to get it with 20% off if we subscribe to regular shipments. But other than that, it’s $2.33 per capsule or 77.7 cents for every 10 billion CFU.
Which is, to tell truth, a ton of money.
Hence, very little value for the price.
To illustrate, something like the 1MD Complete Probiotics Platinum (review) comes for about 26.8 cents per 10 billion CFU. So, it’s basically less than 35% of what the Natren Healthy Trinity costs.
Granted, 1MD doesn’t offer third-party testing. But it has better additives, far higher strain diversity, and in-house testing will suffice.
Another example would be the Renew Life Ultimate Flora Adult 50+ Probiotic (review). This costs typically 27.2 cents for every 10 billion CFU. Which is another ridiculous difference as far as price. And there are many more examples like this even when the rivals also offer third-party testing and delayed-release capsules.
I mean, clearly, the supplement of this review might be okay in terms of ingredients. But it’s sure as hell pricey.
Pros & Cons | Healthy Trinity’s Biggest Flaw Is Arguably Pricing
|✓ The Probiotic is Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, and Dairy-Free.||✘ The pricing is just too much. It’s hellishly much.|
|✓ The supplement offers a potent total amount of Probiotics for a full range of benefits.||✘ I don’t think that the additives are ideal or always the quality choices.|
|✓ The Natren Healthy Trinity is third-party tested for purity, potency, and safety.||✘ This Natren product doesn’t offer any Prebiotics to augment the effects of Probiotics.|
|✓ The actual success rates are likely higher than they appear to be.|
|✓ The supplement uses a patented form of encapsulation (delayed-release capsules), so that the Probiotics wouldn’t die off while traveling through the stomach acid.|
Overall | Generally Speaking, I Feel We Kind Of Have To Still Consider It
Personally, I’m definitely not a fan of the Natren Healthy Trinity Probiotic. That being said, I believe (out of avoid it, consider it, shortlist it, buy it) it’s still something that we should at least consider.
I mean, it’s hard to deny. The beneficial ingredients are pretty awesome. The oil-matrix technology also sounds neat. Plus, the additives in of themselves are not the worst.
Then, the success rates may seem not that high. But if they were to correctly package it (which is the most frequent complaint), I think they would probably be at 90% and above. Plus, the third-party testing to ensure quality is awesome.
Or, in other words, it’s really great if we’re considering just the sheer characteristics of the thing.
But if we look at the price, it just doesn’t feel worth it. I feel there are quite a few options that easily rival Natren Healthy Trinity’s quality without even coming even close to that price tag. Personally, the Live Conscious Pro-45 (full review) is one of my favorite examples of that.
Above all, I hope this Natren Healthy Trinity Probiotic review helped you find the information you were looking for. If you have any thoughts or questions, I’m all here for you. And do feel free to leave your own personal reviews on the product as well.

I looked all over their website and did not find anywhere that indicated that they used a 3rd party for quality testing. Very odd.
Their site, I agree, is FULL of blah blah we are the best advertising. Personally I prefer Klaire Labs
Wow! I don’t remember learning so much in such a short read! I mean your article is of a perfect length but it is so thorough and detailed that I learned more on probiotics in one article than in the past 5 years! I didn’t know they had additives to fight the stomach acids nor did I know there were PRE-biotics! I’m gonna have to look into that.
Thanks so much for your great work!
I’m really glad that this was insightful. That’s great to hear.
And thank you so much for the kind words. :)
Great review, thank you. I originally heard about Natren from a random YouTube Dr who has treated candida for over 30 years. She said she had the privilege of watching candida in a high-powered microscope get completely eradicated with one dose of Natren. I don’t think she was trying to sell the product so that’s what got me interested. Wish it was a little cheaper though. I may give them a try to see if I feel any better.
That’s very interesting. But, for sure, being more affordable would really go a long way. To that end, if it was a bit more easier on the cost, I would have categorized it as something to shortlist. But despite me rating it a category lower, it’s still a very decent product.
If you do end up going for it, let me know how it goes. I would love to hear from you.
Hi! I appreciate the thoroughness of this review. I’m especially curious about the customer service and guarantee, though. It’s worth trying if I can get my money back if unsatisfied. But will they actually stand by that guarantee? Or will they make it difficult if I don’t like their product?
Hard to tell. Still considering, despite the price.
Yeah, I absolutely feel you. It can be such a struggle. In fact, I myself am currently trying to deal with this seller that, funnily enough, passively refuses to ensure its guarantee.
Now, as for Natren, I do think that it’s a properly solid brand. Plus, they are far, far more transparent about their manufacturing practices than most supplement manufacturers out there. I mean, while I didn’t give it the greatest review, it did feel to me like a brand that I wouldn’t mind investing in.
To that end, at least personally, I would feel confident that they will not go back on their money-back guarantee. But, by any chance, if they do, I would love to hear all about it. :)
This is a fantastic review of the Natren Healthy Probiotic. Thank you for providing such in-depth information and for not trying to ‘sell me’ on something. It is a breath of fresh air when a blog actually gets painstakingly honest in a product review.
I agree, the price for this product is pretty ridiculous and I can’t stand subscription programs. I feel if a product is worth its salt, a customer will continue to order, without having the have an automatic payment take off their credit card.
Also, great point about the ingredients not really being super strains. I agree, this is a handy marketing ploy. This really gets me. It makes buying supplements so much more difficult, especially with fake reviews and the like. The information provided here shows the true feelings many customers have. Thank you for breaking down the sum of their reviews. It gives a consumer a glimpse into what is really going on with this product.
Thank you for the recommendation of Live Conscious Pro-45. Will this product be really good for digestion issues, like constipation?
I appreciate your help!
Thank you. The words are too kind. I appreciate that. :)
Yeah, subscriptions are all about kind of locking people in the service. Because it’s very easy to continue to sell to us customers if we’re subscribed. Hence, they often (as it is in this case as well) offer various discounts in order to persuade people to purchase any given supplement that way. But, indeed, I couldn’t agree more. If it’s genuinely worth it, we won’t need an automatic payment to remember to order it.
Yeah, marketing gets most people, and advertising for super strains when those can be found in many other supplements, that’s just a good, persuasive way to spin the words and help decide people in favor of buying.
Yes, the Pro-45 has every reason to deliver on that. :)
Usually, a probiotic supplement I trust is one I have seen in stores, my family members have used or own some but the ones that are declared as the next miracle. I do not trust it. You provided a lot of facts about it and it really helps me when you get to the side effects. Because no matter how good they say it is, what’s the worse that can happen to you while taking it, is more important to me. This product seems to only offer bad breath or a bad taste so if other people that used the product saw a difference then I might try it if Natren served my purpose.
I noticed a typo in the second paragraph next to the photo. You started proving the statistics and in the second line you have “is likely higher than that” I believe you intended for “it is likely higher than that”.
You definitely showed me a super probiotic I had never seen before but even if it was a 90% success rate if multiple customers complained that the bacteria were not properly preserved in shipping with some kind of ice pack or something I would not but it because that would end up being my complaint.
I’m glad this was helpful. And I do get that point of view. Indeed, if the negative is far worse (like a heart attack) than the positive (improved digestive health), it never makes sense to go for it. The positive just doesn’t justify the negative.
Thank you for spotting that. I did correct that. I appreciate it.
Yeah, I do agree. That is very odd that they ship without ice packs. But I don’t think they do that when ordering from the manufacturer’s website. I think it’s a peculiarity of Amazon.
Thank you for this Natren Healthy Trinity Probiotic review! This is such an honest review with a great depth of explanation. I have to be honest that I am always so skeptical of these probiotic products as they seem to sometimes sell at super expensive pricing with overpromising results. I totally agree with you that there are so many better oils out there. Olive oil or coconut oil are a few of the good ones but the fact that they chose sunflower oil disappointed me a lot (especially with that pricing!). As for me, I appreciate that they have added quite an amount of great ingredients that no doubt can help our body. Though, like what you have mentioned, this could be easily found in other products as well. I am also disappointed to see that so many people have complaints about the packaging as this worries me to think that the live cultures will be negatively affected without the ice packs.
The pricing is way too expensive for what I get from this product but I will be checking out the 1MD Complete Probiotics Platinum as you have suggested! All in all, thank you so much for your helpful input on this product, this definitely helped me be more aware of it. Looking forward to seeing more of these and keep it up!
Uuu-uu, I absolutely feel you. They, indeed, are sometimes (to say the least) selling at super high prices with over-the-top promises. I think, yeah, there is stuff to appreciate about this one. But some ingredient choices.. Well, let’s just say they’re not ideal. Yeah, as you noted, that’s especially true given the price. Also, I agree with your concerns given the packaging. It can really mess things up.
Other than that, I’m happy to hear this proved to be helpful. That’s some genuine music to my ears. Made my day!! :)
This is a very comprehensive review on Natren Healthy Trinity Probiotics. There seems to be so many companies that have joined the probiotic market, and many have quite wild claims about the benefits and what their product can do. Healthy Trinity seems to be another of those.
Looking at your price comparison with other probiotic products, I do not think that Natren Healthy Trinity probiotics offer any value for money. I will look into your recommendations.
Yeah, I can absolutely agree with that. Many do seem to be quite wild as regards the claims they’re making. Still, most of the time, they are within reason.
As for the price, it really is a steep one. It may work for some people but I sure wouldn’t recommend it.
Thanks for this very detailed and educating article on the Natren Healthy Trinity. I was looking for something like this. I’m glad I didn’t have to look too far (or too long) for it. I too was very impressed with the claims they made and everything. But from the breakdown you shared, it doesn’t seem to be entirely better than other supplements out there. Moreover, the fact that they offer free shipping and cashback isn’t really an advantage if it costs so much. It’s just awkward.
I’m beyond happy to hear this fit your taste perfectly. That’s awesome.
And I agree, the pricing is just awkward. Even with the free shipping and money-back guarantee.
Cheers, and have a Great One!
It seems to me that there is an ever growing number of companies that are there just to make money from probiotics. What’s even more obnoxious is the fact that many of them are often making such wild claims about their strength and quality. I wouldn’t say Natren Healthy Trinity is necessarily that product. I think they do bring some value to the table with that oil-matrix Trenev Process. But they’re still an overpriced example of things. Especially after some of the comparisons you made. Thank you, Matiss.
I agree with that 100%. But while I definitely see it as something overpriced, I wouldn’t say they ever were a part of the hype train. They were doing Probiotics way before they became “cool.” And they’ve just kept doing it.
I appreciate you for sharing your thoughts.
Cheers, and have a Great One!
