What is Kombucha? According to Wikipedia…
Kombucha is an effervescent fermentation of sweetened tea that is used as a functional food. Sometimes referred to as a “mushroom” or “mother”, the kombucha culture is actually a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY).
- Improves your Digestion! It is a probiotic which contributes to healthy
digestive flora in your gut that can help break down foods and absorb the good
stuff, while evacuating the bad stuff easier. Kombucha also is a alkaline
forming food when ingested.
- Helps You Lose Weight! Going one step further with the digestive
benefits of Kombucha, the better we can digest our food (both absorb and
evacuate), the better chance we have at losing excess weight.
- Reduces Your Stress Levels. Kombucha is usually made with tea, which
contains the component theanine. Theanine promotes alpha wave (the in the zone
waves) production in the brain as well as, increases serotonin levels.
- Gives You More Energy/Post Workout Replenisher! Natural supply of
Vitamin B6 & other B Vitamins. It cleanses and detoxes the liver! Rather
than GIVING you energy it is “restoring” your body to its natural energetic
state! Finally, the small amount of sugar that is found in kombucha is already
broken down during the fermentation process, so when consumed after exercise or
high stress levels, it will act like a Gatorade on steroids!
