why drink kombucha?
Through the process of fermentation, kombucha tea is:
- a rich source of probiotics, or healthy bacteria, that support a healthy gut, improve digestion and reduce inflammation
- high in acetic acids, also found in vinegar, which have strong antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, particularly against bad bacteria and candida yeasts
- high in polyphenols and antioxidants that help prevent cellular damage, reduce liver toxicity and slow the growth of tumors
Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that help to restore balance and improve gut functioning.
Use of antibiotics, exposure to pathogenic bacteria, food poisoning and low fiber diets can contribute to an imbalance of good and bad bacteria in the gut, leading to digestive problems and a array of other health issues.
why is gut health so important?
The gut is the foundation of all health. Home to more than a trillion microorganisms, 10 times more than amount of human cells in the body, the gut ecosystem helps us to break down nutrients, extract vitamins from food, and protect toxins from entering the bloodstream.
