A trusted innovator of nutritional medicines for over 40 years

Australia’s Gut health Experts since 1978

Nutrition Care was founded over 40 years ago by Professor Ian
Brighthope, a pioneer of nutritional medicine in Australia and

We have long recognised the importance of optimal nutrition in
the treatment and prevention of illness while improving people’s
wellbeing through high quality, innovative, evidence-based
formulations and education.

Our interest in gut health goes back a long way. In fact, Nutrition
Care was the first to introduce probiotics into Australia. Now we
provide people with a comprehensive range of gut products to
meet their specific needs. We achieve our goals through an
ongoing commitment to credible research, development of
effective formulations with minimal side-effects, and testing the
effectiveness of the products with clinical trials.

We are also committed to helping the general public understand
that a healthy gut is the fundamental of overall wellbeing and health.
