What you get out of your body is what you put into it. A saying heard more and more these days and it’s not wonder with the incredible results yielded from eating the right foods and simply drinking the right… tea! Kombucha is becoming the new health craze found in even celebrities’ hands. It is a super healthy, life-enhancing wonder food that promotes your overall well-being. Especially in this deadly flu season, Kombucha is a sworn-by, all-natural miracle worker that is known to strengthen your natural defenses, restore balance and vitality, improve digestion, decrease appetite, increase energy levels and, in other words, “make you feel good.”
Kombucha is totally raw, all natural, organic, naturally anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, vegan, kosher and low in carbs and calories. Just like regular exercise, Kombucha is something that simply supports a healthy lifestyle.
Alternately known as a Chinese tea, a plant or a mushroom, Kombucha is neither of these as it is “a living culture of beneficial microorganisms and infinitely greater than the sum of its parts.” Kombucha is not a supplement, drug or medicine. Its “adaptogen” effect is seen mostly through its influence on the liver (perfect for the common hangover), the blood and the digestive system, where it normalizes the acidity or pH. The most important function of Kombucha is probably metabolic balancing and detoxification.
Found at your nearest Whole Foods, Basha’s or A.J.’s, Kombucha can be served totally raw or with 5% fruit juice, which is labeled “Synergy.” Choose from more than 8 flavors including Passionberry Bliss, Mystic Mango, Guava Goddess and more. This health elixir does contain a small amount of caffeine that is produced from the culturing of the Kombucha. Varying from batch to batch, Kombucha can contain anywhere from 8 mg to 14 mg per 8 ounces (coffee has 100 mg caffeine per 8 ounces, and decaf has 5 mg per 8 ounces). So instead of your morning coffee with loads of sugar and milk, switch to Kombucha — the natural and healthy way to get energized!
Kombucha was created after founder GT Dave’s mother had been diagnosed with breast cancer in 1995. After much worry and turmoil, he was relieved to hear that the cancer did not spread. One of the reasons being the pungent tasting cultured tea that she had been drinking. After this incredible miracle, GT was inspired to produce Kombucha for anyone who could benefit from it as he and his mother had.
