Kombucha’s Health Benefits

Kombucha is a naturally carbonated, probiotic-rich health beverage produced by fermenting tea and sugar with a live culture. The flavor is crisp, refreshing and, reminiscent of a fruity champagne or cider.

Up to 95% of the body’s serotonin and 80% of the body’s immune system is concentrated in the digestive tract. Kombucha contains large amounts of probiotics which help rebuild the digestive and immune systems, creating an overall feeling of health and wellness.

Kombucha increases the efficiency of the body’s detoxification ability through glucuronic acid production in the liver which rids the body of disease causing toxins.

Kombucha contains high levels of antioxidants that protect cells from damage brought about by cancer-causing free-radicals. Antioxidants also speed up the body’s metabolism, helping the body to burn fat.

Though the exact origin of Kombucha tea is unknown, it has been a part of the Chinese culture for at least two thousand years and has been referred to as “The Elixir of Life”.

Kombucha brewers flavor their tea with a variety of juices, roots and herbs to create vibrant combinations such as Gingerberry, Blood Orange, Raspberry Pomegranate, Lavender Green and Grapefruit Sage.
