When I say the word Kombucha, many people wonder what the heck I am talking about, they are like “kom what??” I can’t lie, I love talking about and spreading the good word on this amazingly tasty and incredibly healthy tea…Kombucha!
I admit it, I am addicted, I can’t get enough of sparkly and refreshing Kombucha! I find myself craving it and so so sad when I run out. Haven’t heard of Kombucha or tried it? I tried Kombucha for the first time I think sometime in 2013 or 2014. It was one thing that I really missed a lot when I was living abroad in Vietnam. At the time I wasn’t the addict I am today, now I am a full-fledged card-carrying addict! Ok, so maybe I don’t have the card, but I am an addict for sure! I’ll be honest, not every flavour of Kombucha is for me, but I am open to trying them all as I am often quite surprised. I have ones I love, one surprise was chlorophyll and Mint Kombucha, and my long-time love has been ginger! For some it may be an acquired taste, however once you find one you love (or find you love them all) you will find yourself craving this delicious tea regularly.
So just why do I love Kombucha?
Well outside of the fact I love how it tastes and find it quite refreshing I love that it comes with some many health benefits!
Did you know that Kombucha is amazing for the gut? It is packed full of probiotics that provide the gut with healthy bacteria. Kombucha is great to drink when you have eaten too much as it is great for digestion. Due to the healthy bacteria it aids in reducing inflammation in the body and can even help with weight loss…bonus!
Since Kombucha is made from green tea (or black tea) you get all of the benefits from this antioxidant powerhouse. As you know antioxidants help fight against degenerative disease such as cancer.
These are just a few of the health benefits, to learn more check out this great article by Joe Leech MS.
What are you waiting for? Try some Kombucha today, I promise, your gut will thank you!
To Your Health,
