Bio-Strath is produced over a two month period by feeding ‘friendly’ yeast cells with a mixture of herbs. More than 400 different yeast types are thought to exist on earth, 100 of which are pathogenic and 300 of which are good. Bio-Strath is made from Saccharomyces Cerevisiae MEYEN, a ‘good’ yeast harvested from fresh fruit.

The herbs in Bio-Strath were specifically chosen by Dr. Walter Strathmeyer, the bio-chemist who formulated the supplement, to serve each organ and body system.

After absorbing all these herbs, the yeast is fermented by removing the oxygen in order for osmosis to take place. This means that the yeast cell membrane breaks open and nutrients are released. This process is of cardinal importance for the body’s ability to absorb the yeast as it cannot digest the cell membrane.

Dr Walter Strathmeyer

Bio-Strath was formulated more than 50 years ago in Switzerland by a bio-chemist, Dr. Walter Strathmeyer.

Dr Strathmeyer understood the body’s need for a bio-available nutritional supplement and after much research and development, finally perfected what we know as Bio-Strath.

The merchant and sprout of the Pestalozzi iron and steel dynasty, Pestalozzi, Fred Pestalozzi (1922 – 2014), fell ill at a young age from Meniere’s disease – attacks of dizziness and tinnitus (ringing in the ears). Then, quite by chance, he came across the concentrated herbal yeast preparation from Dr. Walter Strathmeyer. A few short months later, Fred was cured and raring to go.

He was delighted by this personal success and the many positive reports about the experiences of friends and family. Fred contacted Dr. Strathmeyer and they met – the start of a lasting friendship. Dr. Strathmeyer gifted Fred the recipe and the license so to produce and market the natural herbal yeast-based food supplement.

Early Years

In 1961, Fred Pestalozzi founded Bio-Strath AG in a two-room apartment on Zurich’s Langstrasse. In 1964, the company relocated to Herrliberg on Lake Zurich. The facility was extended to its present size in three construction stages.

Fred Pestalozzi was guided throughout by the following four principles, which are still the mainstays of Bio-Strath AG today:

  • Preserving the natural state of the essential nutrients
  • No addition of artificially produced substances
  • Natural preservation, no preservatives
  • Proof of efficacy using strict scientific criteria
