The Secret Is Out! The Product You Need For A Healthy Gut

Get giddy with it

By Teagan Witherow | 1st March 2024

We’re about to drop some serious knowledge – and trust us, this is as mind-blowing as finding a mythical herb that promises eternal youth (well, almost). 

Enter stage left, kefir grains. What are those, you ask? Tiny, jelly-like blobs packed with a heap of bacteria and yeast. 

These bad boys have been fermenting milk and water for centuries, they’re loaded with probiotics, which means they help with digestion, beef up your immunity, and minimise bloating. They’re also chock-full of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. 

We know what you’re thinking, “how do I get my hands on this gut gold and pronto?” The answer? Giddy Citizen. 

Giddy Citizen is a BNE brand with a local brewery that churns out an array of gut-friendly delights like water kefir sodas, kefir krauts, and apple cider vinegar gut tonics. 

Of course, we needed to know how they turn those tiny bacteria blobs into delicious sodas and kraut, so we sat down with the founder Georgina Woods.  

Georgina says to make their water kefir soda, they add kefir grains, a dash of sugar, and fruits plucked straight from local farms to filtered water. Then it’s a process of mixing, fermenting, and voilà – you’ve got yourself a gut-friendly soda. 

The kraut is made with crisp cabbage, Aussie sea salt, and of course those magical little kefir grains. It’s then left to fermented for a couple weeks before it hits the road and is distributed to customers across the globe.

So, next time you’re craving a drink that not only quenches your thirst but also gives your gut a reason to celebrate, look to Giddy Citizen. Trust us, your taste buds and your tummy will thank you.
