What exactly is kombucha?
Kombucha is a lightly fermented and sweetened tea in which the sugars are converted to healthy probiotic and yeast strains. Think, yogurt without the dairy. Or think probiotics, without the pills. For people with dairy allergies or an aversion to dairy products, kombucha is a great way to keep the 'good bacteria' balanced in your GI tract.
What kind of health benefits does kombucha have?
The FDA has not done extensive testing on kombucha, and we won't make any outrageous health claims. However, many people who drink kombucha report healthier feeling GI tracts, less sugar cravings, less caffeine cravings, clearer skin, and better overall health. What contributes to this? Kombucha contains acetic acid (a mild antibacterial), gluconic acid (a mild detoxifier), lactic acid, malic acid (what gives kombucha that slightly sour taste), amino acids, and various probiotic strains. This organic acids are essential in keeping your body balanced and in good health.
When should I drink kombucha?
Whenever you want! Kombucha is a great way to start your morning and wake your body up before you eat breakfast. You can also eat it with lunch, dinner, or as a hydrating drink on a hot summers day. Kombucha also makes a great recovery drink after a hike in the foothills or an hour on the yoga mat. We recommend drinking 4 to 24 oz. of kombucha each day, depending on how your body feels.
