What is Kombucha?
Kombucha you say? You’ve probably heard of it by now, if you’re not sipping a bottle as you read this. Kombucha is not some foreign curse word or a potion made from the blood of your enemies and a fresh toe. Kombucha is fermented tea. And by fermented we mean a culture of yeast and other bacteria combined to create this tasty treat. Ready to try some yet? Don’t worry, kombucha has been around since the early ages, dating back about 2,000 years ago in China, where they called the drink an ‘immortal health elixir’, according to nutritional expert Jaysen Calton. Health elixir is right, kombucha has many positive qualities that can boost your health.
Health Benefits of Kombucha
How can a drink made out of bacteria be good for your health, you say? It’s all about how it’s made! During the fermentation process of creating kombucha, probiotics are produced. Probiotics are healthy bacteria that improve digestion, inflammation, weight loss and overall gut health.
Kombucha can also lower cholesterol levels, help with an irritable bowel and food allergies. Though kombucha is a bacteria, it can kill bacteria that causes infections! A health elixir indeed.
