This past Aussie summer, we at Remedy set out on a mission. A mission to make summer right.
For far too long we've all been sold the story that sugar owns the summer and all the good vibes that come with it. Beach days, road trips, carnivals… heck, even the relief of finishing a hard day’s work… it was all paired with images of ridiculously beautiful people guzzling down the sweet stuff. Even though we all know that’s not the reality. Fed up much? SAME.
But rather than get angry, we got cheeky. We set about making it right. Enter “Sugar Fizz”, a cliched sugary fizzy drink marketed in cliched sugary drink ways. What better way to highlight the ridiculousness of sugary drink ads than to create our own spoof versions, then turn them on their heads with a Remedy reality check?
Check out the results of us making it right below…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubKna-9PhgQhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jre1VxYlSbI
BBC had all the fermented feels going this week with their kombucha feature on the ‘Easy Ways to Live Well’ program.
Following the trusty advice of leading gut health expert Professor Tim Spector, BBC presenter Steph McGovern increased her fibre, vegetable and fruit intake and got on the booch-train to incorporate more fermented foods and drinks into her diet. The result? Steph’s gut health improved from being in the bottom 20% of the population to the top 35%! Ahhhmazing!
The episode further delved into the traditional method of making kombucha – which we follow at Remedy – involving a natural fermentation of sweet tea with a live culture. The result is a sparkling drink that contains live cultures, tea polyphenols and organic acids.
Booch bro, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall was chuffed to show off his kombucha homebrew to Steph and give her the 411 on what’s good for her guts.
“Fermentation creates bacteria. There are lots of exciting bacteria in kombucha, that may not be in your gut already, but your gut will be very happy have.” Says Hugh.
Thankfully you don’t have to be a brew expert like the v dishy Hughy to get your daily dose of booch because we stock the raw, live cultured real deal right here.

Our hearts are damn heavy for Australia right now watching the absolute devastation of the bushfires continuing. More than ever, this ripper of a country needs our support. We want to do whatever we can to help make it right.
That's why from the 8th – 15th of January, 100% of all online sales globally will be donated to support bushfire relief across Australia.
We’re also working with the legends at Foodbank to donate thousands of much-needed Rem drinks to bushfire victims and emergency responders.
We know SO much more is needed. But it's a start, and we are continuing to explore ways we can help those in need recover and rebuild their lives and land.
Our strength, resilience and good vibes as a community give us hope.
