Kombucha began as a time-honoured tea ritual over 2,000 years ago in China, loved for its reviving taste and health PROPERTIES. SOME HAVE EVEN CALLED IT 'THE ELIXIR OF LIFE'.
But the secret's out now, and kombucha, rich in naturally occurring probiotics and antioxidants, is now enjoyed the world over.
Kombucha is a raw living tea, 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 the fermentation process, metabolising the sugars into a unique range of health-giving enzymes, probiotics and antioxidants. This leaves us with the gift of kombucha: a naturally energising and detoxifying shot of energy for your body.
The naturally occurring probiotics created by the fermentation process can aid gut healing. Kombucha is also widely regarded as an overall digestive health drink. 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.
