160516 "Three Benefits of Kombucha"

While we benefit from having a Kombucha on tap just outside our door the benefits of this ancient drink have been known about for quite a while. Below are Three ways that Kombucha can help you keep your health at a Peak level. Kombucha Improves Digestion

Kombucha contains probiotics, enzymes and beneficial acids and these have been studied for a long time and proven for their benefits. We have  100 trillion + microorganisms from 500 different identified species. Because of this we should look at ourselves as more bacterial than human. There has been a lot of emerging research on the dangers of an overly sanitary environment and how overuse of antibiotics and antibacterial soaps and products is literally changing the structure of our gut.

Drinks like Kombucha, Water Kefir, Milk Kefir, and fermented foods like sauerkraut contain billions of these beneficial bacteria, enzymes and acids that help keep the gut in balance.

Kombucha Supports natural Detoxification and Liver Health!

The liver is one of the body’s main detoxification organs. Kombucha is high in Glucaric acid, which is beneficial to the liver and aids its natural detoxification. As Kombucha also supports healthy gut bacteria and digestion, it helps the body assimilate food more easily and provides quick and easy energy without caffeine.

Kombucha Boots Your Immune System and Response

Kombucha is naturally high in antioxidants and supportive of the immune system. Though there is really no 'one-pill' that can help your entire Immune System, Kombucha can help keep the bacterial environment flourishing in your Gut so that the overall immune system can remain healthy. It contains a compound called D-saccharic acid-1,4-lactone (or DSL for short) that has amazing antioxidant properties. This compound is not present in unfermented teas (though many teas are high in other antioxidants). DSL has been specifically identified as beneficial for cellular detoxification.
