Unglut Your Gut 2017
For the last three years, in an effort to combat the seasonal tsunami of wine, ham and chocolate covered comestibles, over 300 people have joined in our post-holiday Unglut Your Gut Challenge (see below for details). It’s a month-long internal journey with a Soul Strength Ferment and a Lo Bros Kombucha reward at the end. Which is all good, but the reward’s not really the reward if you know what I mean. Because if, at the end of this month, all we achieve is an increase in the diversity of our microbiomes and emerge healthier, less bloated and bleary then that will be reward enough.
Want to take the challenge? UNGLUT YOUR GUT WORKS LIKE THIS…
There’s three very important steps (you have to do all of these or you don’t get the fermented goodies)
Step 1. Place your first order before 11pm on Tuesday January 24th
Step 2. Activate the challenge with your FIRST order by entering the code GUT2017 in the promo box at checkout
Step 3 Order for 4 CONSECUTIVE WEEKS (Orders need to be $30 or more and we’ll deliver a 250g bottle of Soul Strength Ferments Sauerkraut (various flavours) and a Lo Bros Kombucha 330ml (also various flavours).
Our mission is to do good at every part of the food chain
