Kombucha has been known over the years for all of it's amazing health benefits, giving it the nickname “the tea of immortality.”
Kombucha starts out as a sweet tea, which is then combined with a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY). From here, the SCOBY ferments the tea over time to create the sparkling beverage we all love to enjoy. As a whole, these ingredients take a simple product, tea, and turn it into a live super food beverage that is amazing for your body.
Kombucha is a live food which means it’s considered a living organism. This is important because living energy works with living cells in our bodies to accelerate health benefits. The good bacteria that are created in the fermentation process supply several strains of probiotics. It has been found that probiotics work hand and hand with neurons in the digestive system to help aid in the production of serotonin. This chemical contributes to well being and happiness. Further, kombucha supplies key nutrients to our diets such as B vitamins, antioxidants, enzymes, as well as being a liver detoxer.
