As regular readers of Amodrn, no doubt you’ve heard us harp on about how much we love Remedy’s range of gut-friendly drinks. All you have to do is look in our office fridge to see that it’s our drink of choice (we all debate about which one is our fave, but we’ll save that for another time!).
Since the success of their kombucha, Remedy has gone on to launch two other gut-loving beverages—Remedy Switchel and Remedy Coconut Water Kefir. All three boasting their own unique brew method and health benefits.
Not sure what the difference is or when and how to incorporate them into your day? You’ve come to the right place! What we love most is that there is a drink for every occasion (we swear by a Switchel after lunch) so keep reading to find out when and how you can benefit from each:

  • For when you need a boost of energy…


Remedy Kombucha is perfect for when that dreaded 3pm slump hits! Not only is it loaded with organic acids (AKA Short Chain Fatty Acids or SCFAs), which act as an energy source for the good bacteria in your gut, it also helps to regulate appetite and cholesterol as well as stabilize blood sugar levels.
Low in energy or feel like you’re coming down with something? As an added bonus, Remedy Kombucha also keeps the bad bugs at bay with antioxidants to help the body fight illness.

  • For aiding with digestion….

All Remedy Drinks are naturally fermented and are all excellent choices if you are looking to give your beneficial gut bacteria a boost.


Remedy Kombucha is made by fermenting sweet tea and a live culture known as a SCOBY (symbiotic community of bacteria and yeast) and is full of beneficial live cultures and organic acids which are great for gut health and general wellbeing. It works by increasing the diversity of gut flora and supplying billions of microorganisms full of vitamins, minerals and fibre which these healthy bacteria then use as a food source.

Coconut water kefir:

Remedy Coconut Water Kefir is a hand-crafted, live cultured coconut water, naturally containing zero sugar and jampacked with probiotic goodness thanks to live kefir cultures, Saccharoymes and Lactobacillus.


Remedy Switchel is also highly recommended as a daily health tonic with Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) and ginger to aid digestion and improve gut health.

  • For post-exercise recovery…

Coconut water kefir:

Think electrolytes, minerals and hydration! Remedy Coconut Water Kefir is a perfect choice for post-workout hydration and certainly gives sugary sports drinks a run for their money with all the health benefits of coconut water, minus the sugar.


Remedy Switchel is a refreshing reboot on an old school, live-cultured drink originally enjoyed by farmers toiling in the fields of the West Indies and North America in the 1700s making it another great choice for post-gym hydration.

  • For when you’re craving sugar…

The best thing about Remedy’s range of beverages is that they come in a variety of flavours that have you feeling like you’re drinking something a little naughty, but in fact, it’s quite the opposite! They’re delicious substitutes for soft drinks and Remedy Kombucha, Switchel and Coconut Water Kefir are all great options here. Try Remedy Coconut Water Kefir in Passionfruit and Lemon Squash and Remedy Switchel in Blood Orange.
