Kombucha is thought to have begun as a time-honoured tea ritual over 2,000 years ago in China. it’s a chilled fermented tea, brimming with life and rich in naturally-ocurring probiotics, antioxidants and enzymes.
Basically, it’s good NEWS for your gut.
Kombucha is made through adding a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (otherwise known as a SCOBY) to tea, raw cane sugar and water. The combination of these elements triggers a fermentation process that metabolises the sugars into a unique range of health-giving properties. This fermentation eventually leaves us with the unique and reviving gift of kombucha.
The naturally occurring probiotics created by the fermentation process can be beneficial for gut health, and kombucha is widely regarded as a digestive aid. It has also been thought to assist in the treatment of joint stiffness, heartburn, arthritis and candida. You can read up on more kombucha health benefits over here.
