About Us

One common observation over the years of running a natural health supplement retail store and a naturopathic consultation clinic, is that clients who have a lot of issues with their health are usually overweight or hold excessive abdominal fats, that is the skinny fat.  Over the years, we have managed to help a lot of our clients address their chronic health problems and achieve great improvements in their health by helping them lose weight and maintain a healthy weight naturally.  This has led us to conclude that obesity and excessive abdominal fats are closely linked to many chronic health problems, some of which can be life threatening, other conditions erode a person’s quality of life.  Once a person is able to lose weight and/or excessive abdominal fats and maintain a healthy weight through good nutrition, whole foods and antioxidants, many of their health issues will be addressed and some may even be reversed.

However, we found that although there are a lot of weight loss programs and products in the market, some of them are not natural and may even contain harmful ingredients.  Some involve unhealthy eating habits that will cause rebound weight gain after the program.  Others are isolated products that do not address the needs of the body entirely.  This led us to design a program with products that provide a natural and comprehensive solution to healthy weight management.  The VBN range of natural weight management products is distributed by Vitaboost Nutrition (NZ) Limited and the natural weight management program is available currently at Nutriactionz Natural Health Clinic.

Vitaboost Nutrition (NZ) Limited is a New Zealand based natural health supplement company founded specifically to formulate, manufacture and distribute high quality natural health products to the growing natural health sector.  The company is part of the Vitaboost NZ group of businesses operating NutriActionz Natural Health Clinic, a naturopathic consultation business and Health e-Sense, a natural health and whole food retail store operating from Flat  Bush in Auckland since 2005.
