Remedy Good Energy is here!

An energy drink that’s all good? All rrrriiiiiight!

What’s that? An energy drink that’s good for you? Heck yes! This brand new, live cultured fizzy from Remedy is a kombucha-based energy drink, containing all the gut goodness and benefits of kombucha with the added good vibes and good energy buzz of raw green coffee bean and ginseng for a smooth, enduring energy kick minus the nasties. 


Why’s it so good for you?

Made with a base of Remedy Kombucha, Remedy Good Energy is packed with polyphenols, live cultures and organic acids.

For a smooth, enduring energy kick we’ve added a few extra goodies including:

Green coffee bean to deliver a clean caffeine boost. Boo ya!
Ginseng:  For the win! Ginseng is known for its naturally energising properties. Double down on that!

Remedy Good Energy doesn’t contain any sugar, crazy unsafe levels of caffeine (more on these though later), guarana, or anything artificial. We’re making it right with a drink that delivers a sustained natural energy boost without the crash, jitters or guilt that can come from more traditional energy drinks loaded with sugar and chemicals.


Where does the energy come from?


It’s all around you. Nah. JK. Good Energy Blackberry contains around 60mg of caffeine per 8.5oz can. A cup of instant coffee sits at around 80mg of caffeine. Other energy drinks contain around 80mg per 250ml can. Ours has just a bit less, but without the insane sugar load or any artificial nasties. We know what we’d rather drink!


Soooo….what does it even taste like?

Remedy Good Energy is fizzy, super refreshing. It's plump & juicy, bursting with goodness!


How on earth do we make this goodness?

Remedy Good Energy comes from the same kitchen counter that brought you Remedy Kombucha and is made using  the same live kombucha culture from the original homemade brew that our founders Sarah and Emmet nurtured back in the day.

Brewed the old school way, all the sugar is brewed out, leaving a live cultured drink with no sugar, for real! We then add green coffee bean, ginseng and all-natural flavours to dial it up to a whole new level for an all-natural energy drink that’s better for you!


When can I drink it?

In the AM: Remedy Good Energy is the perfect fizzy to put a pep in your step first thing. Chock full of live cultures, polyphenols and vitamins, try it for a fruity start to your day.
The 3pm slump: It’s a thing. Instead of reaching for a cheeky chocolate or soft drink, why not try a Remedy Good Energy and do the right thing by your mind, body and gut! Healthy = tasty with Remedy. No guilt goodness for your gut right here!
You’re busting a gut at work or play: You’re out and about trying to get ‘it’ done or pulling a late one because you’ve got an exam or work presentation. Reach for the Remedy Good Energy we say!
Sub out a traditional energy drink: Got the jitters from one too many? We get it, we’re no saints either but try a Remedy Good Energy instead and see how you go…guaranteed you’ll be feelin’ good vibes only.

But why choose Remedy? 

We know you've heard of other kombucha brands, but we follow a traditional method of making our booch here at Remedy. It involves a natural fermentation of sweet tea with a live culture (aka 'good bacteria'), made in small batches and long-aged brewed for 30 days, using only the best natural ingredients. The result is a sparkling drink with sweet and sour flavors that is naturally free from sugar, and chock-full of antioxidants, live cultures and organic acids. Trust us - you can TASTE the quality. 

 

Every single batch of Remedy uses a descendent of the first culture that our founders Sarah and Emmet Condon started with on their kitchen counter, resulting in an extremely strong and healthy live culture within each drink. This is one of the key reasons that, unlike some kombucha brands, Remedy doesn't have to be stored in the fridge – and why you'll find it in the soda aisle at your local supermarket. We're also low in calories and the perfect pick-me-up without any of the nasties! 

 


What is Kombucha?

We’ve all been there. That awkward feeling when everyone else is all over something, and you have a-b-s-o-l-u-t-e-l-y no idea what they are on about... kombucha what? You wanna ask, but you know it’s too damn late.

We get it. Which is why we are here with the definitive guide to the question: what on earth IS kombucha? 

Remedy Nutritionist, Jacqueline Alwill explains, in a nutshell, kombucha (often lovingly referred to as “booch”) is fermented tea.

The traditional method of making kombucha – which we follow at Remedy – involves a natural fermentation of sweet tea with a live culture. The live culture is known as a SCOBY, which stands for Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast.

The result is a sparkling drink with sweet and sour flavours that contains the goodness of live cultures, tea polyphenols and organic acids. Better yet, it’s downright delicious! You can even brew your own booch at home – Remedy recipe   here. 

Now, before you go passing it off as a fad, you should know that it’s believed that kombucha originated in China around 2000 years ago. People around the world have been making and enjoying kombucha for thousands of years, particularly throughout Eastern Europe and Asia. Find out more about the history of kombucha   here.

At Remedy, we make our kombucha according to the same ancient traditions as the origins of kombucha. Long-aged brewed and FULL of the good stuff. In fact, Remedy started out on our founders’ Sarah and Emmet Condon’s kitchen bench, and we are still brewing with the same live culture they first started out with!

 



The Lowdown on Live Cultures!

Remedy is the real deal: small-batch brewed the old school way, using a live culture that is natural to our drinks. But what are these live cultures? We know they’re good for us, but why should we care? Here’s the live culture lowdown.

What are live cultures?

Live cultures are a form of “good” bacteria, that comes in the form of microbes associated with foods and drinks, often acting as fermentation agents.

What’s so good about live cultures?

Live cultures can potentially support gut health by:

Increasing the diversity of your gut flora, aka the good bugs that live in your gut to get things working as they should.
Preventing the growth of bad bugs that can make you sick.
Supplying billions of microorganisms that are full of vitamins, minerals and fibre, which the healthy bacteria in your gut use as a food source to produce important metabolites for good health.

Remedy live cultures are made right!

Remedy’s live cultures occur naturally and plentifully in our drinks because we brew our kombucha the old school way, from scratch using a live culture that is a descendant of the very first batch our founders Sarah and Emmet made on their kitchen counter.

While some foods and drinks labelled as live cultured or probiotic get that way thanks to dosed or added ingredients, we pride ourselves on the fact that there’s no need for that ‘round here! It’s pretty simple. If you use the right ingredients, brew for the right amount of time (don’t try to speed up the process) then you’ll make something damn right and tasty. Kombucha has been around for thousands of years – we keep our recipe and fermentation process traditional, and our kombucha raw and unpasteurized, so you get that authentic and quality live culture goodness inya. Quality over quantity peeps.

What is the live culture count in Remedy Kombucha?

Our live culture count sits at a mighty minimum of 250 million per 250mls of Remedy Kombucha!

How do we know? Well, I’m glad you asked. We test every batch during production to ensure the live cultures stay healthy and strong in every one of our drinks. We also conduct regular shelf-life testing to ensure those live cultures are still going strong right through to the end of shelf life. Yep, our team of Remedy have their work reallllllly cut out for them.

What are the specific live cultures/ strains of bacteria in Remedy Kombucha?

Yeast of the Saccharomyces genus and bacteria from Acetobacter and Gluconobacter species are just some of the major contributors behind the magic of fermenting Remedy from sweet tea into liquid gold! Both have been found to have a range of proven health and wellbeing benefits.

How can you tell your kombucha is alive and kickin’?

It’s super simple to test whether your kombucha is alive! Pour it into a glass and let it sit in a warm place for a few days. If you use Remedy Kombucha, a SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast aka. ‘the mother’) will form. Yeah huh. Pretty amazing stuff.
