30 Day survival program to assist with the effects of going alcohol-free.
The Story behind On the Wagon by Our CEO Darren:
I’m sure we all have our own relationship with alcohol or know someone with a relationship with alcohol. For me, it was a habit of fulfilling that 5.30pm after work destress with a couple of glasses of wine while cooking dinner or watching TV. This habit is at least 20 years old and the thought of going a period of time alcohol-free, scared the hell out of me. So I embarked on 40 days alcohol-free and if I knew then what I know now I would not only have managed that time better, but I would have really capitialised on the time of being alcohol-free.
What I learnt from the experience combined with the research we now have, managing the experience of someone going cold turkey after a habitual relationship with alcohol has led to the development of this program. We have identified several key points from experience along with our Pharmacists, Doctors, Scientists and client feedback, have developed a program to help anyone wanting to take a break from alcohol, without some of the identified side effects.
The “ON THE WAGON Sobriety Survival Kit” is a combination of medical grade vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other sourced ingredients compounded by our Pharmacist to combat or assist the following:
Assist Serotonin Unbalance
Reduce Sugar Craving
Reduce Anxiety & Mood
Improve Relaxing & Sleep
Improved Gut Health

The 1-month program consists of 4 products jam-packed with complex medical grade ingredients to assist you through the first month of sobriety without the added side effects. There are two add on options individually designed to add benefit for specific goals while enjoying an alcohol-free break. These goals are:
Increased Weight Loss
Improved Gut Health

ANTIOXIDANT COMPLEX (60 caps) N-Acetyl Cysteine, Alpha Lipoic Acid, CoQ10 and Ascorbic Acid, this is a powerful blend of antioxidants to support healthy liver function. N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) enhances the production of glutathione (the master antioxidant). It also prevents liver damage by neutralising free radicals and reducing heavy metal toxicity. CoQ10 is an antioxidant used by cells for energy. Alpha Lipoic Acid is one of the best free radical scavengers and improves oxygenation of every cell in the body. Ascorbic Acid helps to fuel the immune system so it can perform at an optimal level.
2 Capsules PM
RELAX & SLEEP COMPLEX (60 caps) Ashwagandha and Rhodiola are two “must-have” adaptogens that help to support the adrenal system and reduce mental stress in the body. GABA provides a calming effect and helps with feelings of stress and anxiousness. Magnesium glycinate is essential for muscle recovery and relaxation to help you achieve a restful sleep. Zinc and P5P are essential nutrients in the body and help with mood regulation, muscle relaxation and immune system support.

RAVE not CRAVE (30 caps) Energy + stress control + reduce sugar cravings capsule. B1 is vital for maintaining healthy muscles and nerves. B2 is essential for energy production and the formation of healthy red blood cells. B3 converts carbohydrates to fat for use as energy and improves joint mobility. B5 helps to metabolism protein and produces red blood cells and steroid hormones. B6 is an important part of the healthy functioning of the nervous system and produces neurotransmitters like serotonin. B7 improves the growth and maintenance of muscle tissue. Methylcobalamin is the most active form of B12 and has a variety of uses in the body. It supports the nervous system, synthesises melatonin to improve sleep quality and converts homocysteine to methionine. This conversion forms the superantioxidant glutathione. Chromium helps to reduce sugar cravings and may improve blood glucose control.
