Health Benefits of Kombucha

Health Benefits of Kombucha

The great thing about Kombucha is that it is fit for any diet, whether vegan, kosher, paleo, raw or vegetarian. This slightly sweet and funky drink is for you. 

As well as being a delicious alternative to soft drinks, kombucha has been known to provide a range of health benefits.

As it is talked about more and more now, the gut is our second brain. The endocrine nervous system (gut) is composed of the same material that make up a brain. With fermented foods becoming increasingly popular over the past ten years, we now know one key to a healthy mind and body is maintaining a thriving gut. Kombucha is known to boost these bacteria naturally. Here are a few other ways kombucha has been known to be of benefit to one's health:

It's an Adaptogen.

All About Kombucha is made with premium organic teas - a natural plant. Our kombucha contains all of the adaptogenic goodness of the teas we use. With a full teabag worth in each bottle, the drink is packed with goodness. Adaptogens, which contain antioxidants, balance the body, reduce free radicals, and in turn, reduce stress. They also boost energy and immunity.

It Supports Digestion.

have you ever drank a Kombucha and feel that little rumble in your stomach? This is a good thing; it means the kombucha you are drinking is real, which means the drink has all of the beneficial acids and bacteria that the original kombucha recipe would have been in ancient China or Russia. Kombucha also increases one's gut acidity, which in turn, allows for nutrient absorption and better digestive passing.

Contains B Vitamins & Vitamin C.

Kombucha contains vitamins B1 (thiamine), B6, and B12, all of which are known to help the body fight depression, stabilize mood, and improve concentration. It also naturally contains Vitamin C, in a very bioavailable format.

Infection Protection.

A type of acid called acetic acid, also found in vinegar, is simultaneously produced when kombucha is fermented.

A study carried out in 2000 discovered that kombucha was able to kill microbes while fighting a range of bacteria. This suggests that kombucha may help prevent infections by killing the bacteria that may cause them before they are absorbed into the body.

Cancer Risk.

It is not a fact, but there is growing evidence to suggest drinking kombucha could help reduce the risk of cancer.

A 2008 study found that kombucha helped prevent the growth of cancer cells. Further research in 2013 revealed that kombucha decreased the survival of cancer cells. Both studies suggest kombucha could play a role in treating or preventing cancer.
