My favorite drink and for many others as well. If you have never heard of kombucha, then here it is.
First let's say that this is an extremely healthy & tasty drink, which is why I wanted to blog about it. A staple in my frig. My favourite brand is this one above & third eye is my favourite flavor...yum!
For you pop lovers, you just might want to switch your favorite unhealthy pop out for this nutritious frizzy fermented tea.Pop offers nothing nutritious, but it will offer loads of sugar, loads of chemicals & additives, health problems plus weight gain. NOT GOOD. 👎
Kombucha tea will satisfy your pop taste buds AND will help increase your good health.
For instance, kombucha is:
Alkalizes the body
Relieves joint pain
Helps with PMS symptoms
Helps with digestion
Help cleanse the body
Promotes weight loss
All of this with no chemicals or additives that negatively effects your health. Just plain ol' goodness increasing good health. 👍
Kombucha is a probiotic, microbiological food. It helps regenerate the bowel flora and is excellent for wellbeing.
What is Kombucha made of? - Kombucha is a popular health promoting beverage and natural folk remedy made by fermenting tea. Kombucha is a colony or culture of yeast and other microorganisms embedded in a pure cellulose "pancake." When the "pancake" is grown in a blend of tea and sugar, it transforms the liquid into a refreshingly lightly sparkling, sweet and sour drink with a fruity fragrance full of health giving acids and nutrients. The Kombucha culture feeds on the sugar and, in exchange, produces other valuable substances which change into the drink: glucuronic acid, glucon acid, lactic acid, vitamins, amino acids, antibiotic substances, 0.5% to 1% alcohol is produced as well as other products.
Kombucha apparently evolved from plant organisms over 2.5 billion years ago. People have been preparing and making a fermented tea drink for over 2ooo years for many centuries. The fact that is still here today is a testimonial in itself and that millions of people throughout world for centuries have found it to have great value.
Below is a list of some of the major ingredients found in Kombucha tea:
Various Enzymes, Acetic acid, Carbonic acid, Folic Acid, Gluconic acid, Glucuronic acid, L(+) Lactic, Usnic acid, Amino acids (various), Hydroxy acids (various), Vitamin B1 (Thiamin), Vitamin B2(Riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (Niacin, niacinamide), Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine), Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin, cyanocobalamin), Vitamin C (from Lactic acid)

Want to give it a try? I challenge you pop lovers to switch your pop out for kombucha tea for one week. Hopefully you will be hooked and continue to drink kombucha & stop drinking pop altogether. Give others a chance to improve their health and share this challenge with them. You can find kombucha mostly at natural health food stores. Slowly they are making their way into some larger grocery stores but with smaller selections. There are many brands & flavours to choose from, making it easy for you to find one that will become your favourite. Enjoy the taste & health benefits your body will love you for and may you also be Nutritionally Well.
