We’re often asked the following...
What do they taste like?
They have a very unique taste and are not similar to those drinks! There is ZERO added sugar so they are not sweet, they taste more salty and savoury. The carrot is often a surprise as it doesn’t taste like a store bought carrot juice. It is often thick and can taste zingy. Fermentation allows us to really access the goodness of the carrots plus creating the natural probiotics and digestive enzymes in the fermentation process.
Do you need to take all three tonics?
The 3 tonics - carrot, beet and cabbage all have different nutritional properties, different strands of probiotics and different benefits. When consuming all 3 daily, they work together to support and rebuild the gut. Just having some beet for example is great, but when having the trio,this is where you will see real changes happen.
Who is Clover Ferments for?
- People who have been on antibiotics or any other medications that strip the gut of good bacteria
- Adults or children with food intolerances or allergies
- Individuals with digestive issues - gas and bloating, diarrhoea or constipation
- Anyone looking to improve their overall health and immune system - it all starts with a healthy gut
How do you get your kids to drink them?
We understand that not every kid is going to scull them back like Clover, so if your kids don’t like the taste, you can add them to other food.
Carrot and beetroot are delicious in smoothies, while the super savoury cabbage is best mixed into meals like soups, stews, pasta sauce.
The daily dose for children is fairly small, so some parents have mixed them through porridge and weetbix unnoticed .
How long do the tonics last?
Unopened they will last 60 days from bottling. Once opened its best to consume within 7 days for optimum nutrition and high probiotic count. This is why we deliver weekly, to ensure you don’t go without. However the tonics are still safe and very beneficial within 14 days so we do have a fortnightly option as well.
In the early weeks while you are building up your dose, feel free to share around with family and friends so the tonic doesn’t go to waste.
Why should I go low and slow?
Fermented foods are powerful and when the body is strongly reacting to all of the good probiotics and eliminating the bad bacteria in the gut you can experience some symptoms. It’s far better to build your gut bacteria up slowly and consistently than giving it too much of a good thing when it’s not ready.
Being a GP I have to be the ultimate skeptic when it comes to new health products however the blend has completely cured my own IBS and so far seems to have completely cleared up my 10-month-old's eczema in just two weeks. I haven't changed anything else and his face is so clear!
The turmeric tonic tastes like health in a bottle. Love it!
”I started taking the tonics about 14 months ago, not because I had any particular gut issue, but I knew the importance of gut health and the beneficial properties of fermented foods. After decades of fun living and a few bouts of antibiotics, I figured it was time to give my gut a little TLC. Before long I had 5 other family members who were hooked. We range in age from 18 to 81, with various conditions such as reflux, indigestion, dermatitis etc. Some of us love all the ferments, some love only one or two, and some don't love any! But everyone feels better taking them and has seen improvement in many aspects of health. Originally I thought I'd take them for a few months only, but every time I think of stopping I'm reluctant to. It's as if my body knows it's onto something good, so why stop now? It's a healthy addiction that I'm happy to have!”
“Your tonics have changed my life !! I have had a temperamental tummy since I can remember and for the first time in my life my bowel is happy and regular !! I also have had a huge change in energy levels since taking these and my cholesterol levels have gone down significantly which I also assume is the tonics, totally amazing ! Never going to stop taking them. I also love that I am taking something real and fresh and alive (rather than powders or a pill) Thank you so much for your wonderful product.”
“I knew the ferments would be good for us but I didn’t realise they would taste so yummy”
“I’ve been on anti inflammatories and pain killers for the past 3 weeks for my knee so the ferments have helped keep me unblocked which is great and son hasn’t complained nearly as much about having a sore tummy so winning!”
"My pain has gone down heaps in my joints and I feel way less fatigued. You have no idea - I was waking up and could barely even walk or move because I had so much pain but I feel so much better. Also my nose hasn’t been as blocked as it used to (allergy symptom)”
“Clover Ferments worked wonders for my 1 year old. He had problems with his gut health and overall immunity since he was a few months old and 3 weeks after starting the ferments his gut tested strong with our chiropractor. Amazing stuff xx.”
“I genuinely couldn't live without your tonics, they have been the absolute best thing for me and my psoriasis! I've spent a lot of money going back and forth to the doctors (steroids as we know is only a temporary fix) and even seeing a naturopath but nothing worked until my friend introduced me to Clover Ferments. After taking the tonics religiously every day, my psoriasis is completely gone & I no longer have any flare ups. Over time, I have definitely grown to love the cabbage but carrot is still my fave! My fiancé has started enjoying them too and is stealing my tonics haha. “
“I had been suffering from digestive issues for about 8-9 months - primarily long bouts of constipation, abdominal pain, and bloating. I spent a lot of time at the doctors and with specialists trying to determine the cause. Very quickly fibre and dehydration were ruled out as potential causes - I already consume more than necessary! The current theory is that excessive stress and months of antibiotic use (for a different issue) disrupted my gut micro biome - possibly triggering IBS with constipation. I was prescribed osmotic-laxatives, stimulant laxatives, and buscopam, which I was taking for months. I absolutely hated being dependent on medications just to feel a sense of normalcy. Long story short, I was complaining to a friend about my constipation issues and she recommended your tonics. Since using the tonics most of my symptoms have subsided. It took about 3-4 weeks before I returned to regular daily bowel movements. This was a drastic improvement as I had been constipated for 10 days when I started the tonics. The carrot tonic is my favourite. Like clockwork, within an hour of consumption, I can go to the toilet. My body seems to crave the beetroot and cabbage tonics - I actually love the taste and they make me feel healthy. All in all a very grateful customer!!!”
