Hold onto your tummy it’s Microbiome Flourishing February!
(This competition is now closed. Stay tuned for our next competition coming soon!!!)
This month you could win some big prizes...
We've created a "microbiome super pack" to help your gut health flourish! I've followed my gut instinct and teamed up with Biome in support of your gut’s microbiome this month.
I'm sure you've noticed that there has been a lot more chatter lately about the microbiome in all circles of health and wellness. It makes sense, as continued research and new studies are linking widespread health conditions back to gut health. Think bloating, weight management, gassiness, IBS, autoimmune conditions, Crohns, and ulcerative colitis.
This month, let’s don an imaginary diving suit and plunge inside our tummies to take a look at the incredible living eco system, our gut microbiome (mi·cro·bi·ome).
Your gut microbiome is a vast community of trillions of bacteria and fungi that inhabit the digestive system. These bacteria are responsible for processing and distributing nutrients and hydration. And with great responsibility comes great power. A healthy microbiome has the power to fuel the health of your whole mind and body. (A below par microbiome has the power to run our body down and rob you of vital nutrients and hydration).
Within a healthy gut our microbiome involves a greater number of probiotic (or friendly) bacteria, and a smaller amount of pathogenic bacteria. Scientists now recognise that bad bacteria are harmless just as long as there is enough good bacteria to counter their effects. That’s why it’s important to feed our friendly bugs in order to maintain the survival and proliferation of their colony and to also enhance the immune and nervous systems in and around its boundaries.
Like a garden, your microbiome needs some tender loving care. To help, Supercharged Food and Biome Stores are giving you the chance to win an amazing array of eco-friendly products to supercharge your little biomes! This restorative vegan lifestyle pack is valued at $425!!
Watch some of the fantastic prizes on offer here...
The Supercharged Food x Biome Stores microbiome super pack prize
It’s a mouthful (or should we say ‘gutful’?) but the Supercharged Food x Biome Stores microbiome super pack prize is well worth throwing your hat in the ring for.
It includes your very own composting kit, a probiotic for the microbiome, a home kombucha kit, an oil pulling concentrate for oral flora (your mouth is the first point of digestion), an Eco Max body brush to help circulation and naturally exfoliate, a Life of Cha Balance tea to help with bloating and balance and five Supercharged Food products including the wildly popular Love Your Gut powder and capsules, Golden Gut Blend and a place on the Heal Your Gut four-week online health program.

I personally selected these products from the brilliant Biome Stores range. Below is a description of each and a few words from me about them, in case you'd like to know more :).
I love, love, love my garden! It gives me so many good vibes, not to mention meals! Like your gut you need to give it the best ingredients for it to flourish. That’s why I love, love, love the Bokashi system. It makes composting simple and easy.
Using an organic fermentation process, the Bokashi Bin recycles all your domestic kitchen waste into valuable soil conditioner. It could not be easier to dispose of all your waste — even dairy, meat and fish — in your kitchen, with no smell, no trip to the compost heap and no work to turn the heap. For those living in apartments, you could pass the fermented waste on to a grateful community garden, friends, relatives or the apartment gardener.
Ultimate Biotic from Eden Health foods is pro love. It’s also pre love. Ultimate Biotic is a concentrated gut formula full of prebiotics and shelf-stable probiotics for the ultimate internal health solution. Designed for daily digestive maintenance with a wide variety of friendly bacteria. There are fifteen different types of shelf-stable friendly probiotic flora, including Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium and Soil Based Organism strains, to create optimal microbial balance. Also contains five different soluble and insoluble fibres (prebiotics) to ensure the good bacteria make it through to your large intestines. It’s vegan, organic and gluten-free.
If your family is like mine, we drink lots of kombucha. Save money and bottle waste with Buchi kombucha. Make your own raw, organic Kombucha at home. Handcrafted by Brisbane's brewing company for you and your family. One kit equals a lifetime of homemade organic Kombucha. This kit contains everything you need to brew your very own certified organic, probiotic-rich Kombucha at home.
The SCOBY’s that come from the Buchi Brewery are the healthiest and robust cultures you can get, they’re organic, unpasteurized and full of life, rich in micronutrients, enzymes and beneficial bacteria. This is a fun, easy and a very cost-effective way to make Kombucha.
I drink about four cups of tea a day ok maybe more some days 😉 so I’m always on the look-out for an everyday-type tea. This organic loose-leaf tea, made from Australian grown and wild harvested sencha and strawberry gum is a daily delight. Rich in polyphenols to help balance gut flora, this herbal tea blend can help aid bloating, digestion and immunity. Grown free from pesticides, insecticides and synthetic compounds and packaged in a reusable container. Did you know that this loose-leaf tea can be composted after steeping? So it’s also good for the garden!
Since becoming an Ayurvedic advocate and qualified Ayurvedic chef I’ve been an avid oil-puller. This Ancient Ayurvedic vegetarian formula, made with twenty-four herbs and botanicals in an organic sesame oil base is perfect for newbies or long-time pullers. It detoxifies, conditions gums and helps balance oral flora. Use as part of your daily routine to strengthen teeth and gums and help with oral dryness. Sesame oil is specifically used for its subtle penetrating, preventative and balancing effects.
Sometimes it’s just good to brush it all off. This 100% plant fibre body brush is ethically handmade in Sri Lanka using biodegradable, environmentally friendly and natural fibres. Enjoy the benefits of dry body brushing as you naturally exfoliate, increase circulation, detoxify the skin and relieve stress. It has good medium sized bristles and is vegan friendly. It also leaves my skin feeling clean, tingly and alive.
I developed this Program over six years ago. It’s always popular because people find success and tell their friends to join the Program. You will win a free online membership on the four-week Heal Your Gut online program, a protocol that’s especially designed to help restore inner gut health. It includes a holistic treatment program, supported by delicious, anti-inflammatory recipes to heal and nourish your gut. Unlike other gut-healing protocols, the program is suitable for non-vegetarians and vegetarians and also people following special diets.
Ahhh, my Love Your Gut powder. Please indulge me in a little brag – the powder is Australia’s No.1 natural gut health product! Word-of-mouth has been the key to its success – people rave about its gentle cleanse effect. Love Your Gut Powder has a very simple and natural approach to gut health. As many gut issues can be traced back to an unclean and inefficient digestive tract, Love Your Gut Powder contains naturopathic grade, organic Diatomaceous Earth which helps to clean out the accumulated build-up of waste, toxins, metals and mucous in the digestive tract. The powder contains fifteen minerals that promote healthy hair, skin nails, help lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and assists in increasing energy levels as it helps to detoxify the body.
These capsules are my travel essentials – they’re ideal for gut health on the go! With all the benefits of the original Love Your Gut Powder in a vegan capsule. They’re also compact and great for travel. Ideal for the office, gym bag or in your tote. So you can Love Your Gut wherever you go.
Yummy for your tummy. Another humble brag but this blend tastes amazing! Golden Gut Blend is a beautifully delicious, gut-loving addition to any drink or meal, plus it ticks all the boxes, as raw whole food that's gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo, low in fat and vegan-friendly with no added sugar or caffeine. Give your gut a little love with this deliciously versatile blend of organic turmeric, spices and Love Your Gut Powder.
