Founded by Melanie Nolan.
Melanie is an experienced naturopath, a mother of three daughters, leading The Natal Naturopath women's clinic and vitamin range.
She was featured in Australian Financial Review's fastest growing start-ups 2023, Smart Company fastest growing small-to-medium businesses, and a finalist for 2023 Melbourne Young Entrepreneur Awards.
Practitioner-grade vitamins, that don't need a prescription.
In her clinic, Melanie was seeing too many women who were suffering from poor nutritional levels, and despite taking their vitamins diligently, their levels kept dropping. She was sick of everyone having to have a prescription to get great vitamins.
She imagined a range of supplements that actually do what you want them to, with high-quality ingredients, able to be purchased in an easily accessible way without needing a prescription.
So in 2022, The Natal Naturopath supplement range was launched. As a direct-to-consumer brand, Melanie set out to make supplements that would be made of high-quality ingredients, nourishing in optimal doses, and highly effective — in sustainable packaging (not plastic bottles!).
Vitamins that actually work?!
Being a naturopath, Melanie saw women taking countless vitamins from the chemist and not getting the results they were after.
Poor quality, poor forms, in low doses - Melanie knew she could do vitamins differently. Unfortunately in Australia, high-quality supplements are mostly all practitioner grade, meaning you need to see a health professional to access them. This places significant financial barriers in front of women, meaning the only supplements they have access to are low quality, and poorly absorbing and come with a host of side effects such as nausea and constipation.
Women need more support when it comes to healthcare, and so The Natal Naturopath is here to empower and support women - in all stages of life.
