Let’s talk about kombucha--the fermented tea drink that is everywhere now. The drink, which originated in southeast Asia, has been popularized due to its unique taste and various health benefits. Personally, I cannot get enough of the delicious drink.
Kombucha is great for digestion. Through the fermentation process, it creates probiotics which help support a healthy gut. Since the drink is made from tea, it can also contain antioxidants that help prevent cell damage. There’s even increasing evidence that kombucha may help prevent certain cancers.
There are even more possible benefits of kombucha:
- May help lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels
- Helps reduce inflammation
- Can strengthen the immune system
- Can increase energy levels
- Supports cardiovascular health
- Can boost metabolism
Where To Find It
Kombucha can be found in almost any grocery store or market. There are many different brands that each make delicious and unique flavors:
GT's Living Foods is definitely my favorite brand of kombucha. Made with no added sugar, GT’s has so many refreshing flavors.
Kevita Master Brew Kombucha
Brew Dr. Kombucha is the only kombucha brand that is a Certified B Corporation!
Big Easy Bucha
Tally Kombucha is made right here in Tallahassee since 2016!
Kombucha can be “love it or leave it” taste for many, and for me, I love it (however, when I first tried kombucha I didn’t particularly like the vinegar-y taste, so it can definitely be an acquired taste😆). So go out and give it a try… it could become your next drink of choice.
See you next week!
