    Kheyrne Danu is the brainchild of SuperThrive and founder of Woman Thrive. She is also a health journalist, nature worshipper and muse.

    From a young age Kheyrne had to work through a few big health challenges including adrenal fatigue, digestive issues and reproductive problems. She chose to focus on nature’s medicine chest for her recovery. After much research around hormone healing she finally discovered (back in 2006) the profound effects of adaptogen herbs and superfoods.

    “I had 14 powders lining my shelves and one day I decided to create a mix for easy use. I was surprised how palatable the taste was. Having one powder made life so much easier. After taking it for 30 days I discovered my energy levels greatly improved, my sleep was deep and restful, my mind was more acute and my emotional state was calm and grounded.”

    After experiencing a regenerative leap from taking her personal formula, she decided to make SuperThrive available to all. A short while later SuperThrive for men was born, then the much needed digestion formula and later the nutritional pack for children.

    Today Kheyrne continues her journey to uncover the subtle yet intricate stories of the body. She finds her greatest inspiration comes from the truly wild elements of nature.

    Former world champion go-karter, Formula 3 racing driver, founder of Scheckter's Energy Drink and now restauranteur behind the very popular Scheckter’s Raw in Seapoint

    "Health food has always been a big part of my diet but when I was living in New York launching Scheckter’s OrganicEnergyTM I was blown away by the ingenuity and creativity that was flourishing in the health food scene and a greater passion was sparked in me. When I returned to South Africa, I became frustrated with the local health food offerings. Compared to New York, they were unimaginative and limited. I wanted a place to eat where the food was nutritionally uncompromised, looked as good as it tasted and bursting with original, fresh flavours. Most importantly, I wanted to share that experience with other like-minded, health conscious foodies. I drew inspiration from working on my family’s organic farm in the UK, my travels around the world and my healthy obsession for health food! And so – Scheckter’s RAW Gourmet Health Food was born. A serene space serving uncompromisingly honest, beautiful and innovative healing food made with love.
