Kombucha is a word we are hearing more and more frequently, so what is it? Kombucha is a type of fiz
zy and fruity fermented tea, also known as ‘mushroom tea’ because of the mushroom like colour which is produced whilst in the fermentation stage. One thing not everyone knows though is Kombucha is actually alcoholic! Most drinks will have only a small percentage of alcohol with anything from 0.5% to 2%. It has actually been around for thousands of years and is increasingly popular within the drinks industry as the health and energy benefits it offers are pretty amazing.
A Source of Probiotic
Whilst fermenting, bacteria is grown within the mixture providing a source of probiotic which provides any gut with healthy bacteria, improving digestion, inflammation and even weight loss…winning!
Green Tea Benefits
Green tea is one of the healthiest beverages on the planet and Kombucha contains the same plant compounds which presumably carries the same benefits such as burning calories, improving cholesterol and helping with blood sugar levels.
Kombucha contains awesome antioxidants which fight free radicals (everyday elements which can cause aging and damage to your cells). It especially seems to have positive effects on the liver.
Kombucha produces acetic acid, which you also find in vinegar. This provides anti-bacterial effects which can kill harmful microorganisms and supress the growth of undesirable bacteria.
It is also thought that Kombucha provides your body with a boost of energy and drunk by many people for that reason. Always check the label though as some Kombucha drinks contain a very high level of sugar which will be adding that energy boost.
