Kombucha is the superfood or shall we say super drink of the week. Made from fermented tea, this healthy elixir boasts an abundance of health benefits for your heart, your brain and especially your gut.
So Why Drink It?
Due to the fermentation process involved in creating kombucha, it contains a large number of healthy bacteria known as probiotics. These bacteria line your digestive tract and support your immune system, as they absorb nutrients and fight infection and illness.
After fermentation, kombucha becomes carbonated and contains vinegar, B vitamins, enzymes, probiotics and a high concentration of acid.
The sugar-tea solution is fermented by bacteria and yeast commonly known as a “Scoby” (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast).
As well as probiotics, there are a lot of powerful antioxidants inside the tea drink, which can help to detoxify the body and protect against disease. They especially help to reduce inflammation, the root cause of most diseases.
Many health stores offer different flavors and varieties of kombucha, it is not hard to find.
So try it now.
