Funky Ferments

Gut Health effects eveything.  Your happiness, your energy, your overall health.

Healing our gut and influencing our microbiome into a place of balance has been shown to promote digestive ease for people suffering with inflammatory disorders.  It can help manage sugar and carb cravings, decrease incidence of allergies and sensitivities and generally boost the immune system, contributing to an overall sense of well-being.

And the experience can be pretty damn tasty too.

Motivated by an unquestionable belief that food is medicine and that what we eat can promote great healing or cause great harm, The Cultured Club fermentation advocate and author Dearbhla Reynolds encourages you to turn simple ingredients into superfoods using one of the world’s oldest methods of food preservation.
