Kombucha

February 21, 2017 

With an ever-growing health industry, it is hard to keep up with the latest trends. One of these that we’re seeing more and more is kombucha, a Chinese elixir made by fermenting black tea and sugar. You may have heard it called “mushroom tea” however it is not made from or with mushrooms. Kombucha's benefits comes from it's fremenation process; due to fermentation, kombucha contains beneficial enzymes and probiotics.

 

Benefits include:

Improved Digestion – The probiotics contained in kombucha can improve digestion and help heal leaky gut and stomach ulcers.

Weight Loss – It is believed that, similar to apple cider vinegar, kombucha can improve your metabolism and limit fat accumulation.

Increased Energy – Kombucha contains caffeine as well as b-vitamins which are credited with energizing the body.

Cleansing and Detoxification – Kombucha can counteract liver cell toxicity which is crucial for keeping your body running properly.

Immune Support – Packed with antioxidants, this elixir helps your body control free radicals, protects against cell damage and inflammatory diseases.

Reduced Joint Pain – Kombucha is loaded with glucosamines which supports the preservation of collagen.

Cancer Prevention – Glucaric acid which is found in kombucha has been known to be a beneficial part of cancer prevention and recovery.

 

You can brew kombucha at home or you can simply buy it at your local grocers. We’ve tried KeVita’s ginger kombucha and raspberry lemon kombucha, both of which our office has enjoyed. I like the ginger one the most, if you have not tried kombucha yet, I would say it tastes like ginger beer with a hint of vinegar. Although it doesn't sound appetizing, it's not that bad considering all the health benefits!
