Meet the Kombucha Kangas...
Kombucha Kangas has a nice ring to it, don’t you think? Or the Remedy Roos? We reckon North Melbourne players Robbie Tarrant (left) and Luke McDonald (right) would agree!
We’re not just fans of the ‘Roos (or the shinboners as the die-hards know them), for setting an awesome example by making kombucha a part of their daily diet. We also love the club’s strong spirit, ethos and values. They are heavily involved in their local community and are the only AFL club not to have poker machines. We say that alone is worth rewarding!
Jona Segal, Dietitian and Strength & Conditioning Coach, at North Melbourne, says Remedy is part of a holistic approach to improving the players’ general health and wellbeing through diet and an increasing focus on gut health.
“The fact that Remedy naturally contains no sugar was really important. It’s increasingly clear that even if you can burn off sugar, too much of it can have other negative health impacts,” says Jona.
“I also believe kombucha is an excellent addition to our players’ diets because it contains live cultures and organic acids that can aid digestion and help the body absorb minerals. Remedy is also a great source of antioxidants and has excellent anti-inflammatory properties.”
We love ya guts, kangas!
