Kombucha is a naturally fermented drink that consists of a living colony of bacteria and yeast, which makes it a great probiotic beverage. Among many things, Kombucha benefits a variety of ailments, such as digestion, mood stability and mental clarity, weight loss, detoxification, sleep issues, candida (harmful yeast) overgrowth, and immune system disorders. Kombucha consumers have even gone as far as saying that it prevents cancer, improves liver function, and stops hair loss.
Many have said that Kombucha is the “elixir of life” because of the vast benefits this drink carries. Whatever the opinion, anyone who has tried this tea-like drink would agree that it’s one of the hottest new trends in the health beverage industry.
What Exactly Is Kombucha?
Well, simply put, it’s a fermented beverage. It starts with the fermentation of sweetened tea and acetic acid bacteria, along with specific yeast cultures.
This powerful elixir dates back many centuries to China. This miracle concoction has survived and surpassed many modern day medicinal cures due to the success it’s seen around the globe.
This “mushroom” fungus, which sounds terrifyingly gross, is actually valued and notorious for its one-of-a-kind, refreshing taste. To many people’s surprise, Kombucha does not actually contain any mushrooms!
What it does contain is a vast range of yeast and bacterial species that harbor polyphenols, organic acids, and amino acids. Once you’ve completed the required fermentation process (which is dependent on the pH levels of what you’re using and the “starter”), which usually takes about 3-4 days, kombucha will then have grown and developed into a nutritious champion.
This powerhouse is rich with various minerals and live enzymes. Not to mention the vitamins! This centuries old elixir contains vitamins C, B1, B2, B3, B6, B9, B12, along with many other healthy and beneficial chemical constituents such as oxalic acid, acetic acid, gluconic acid, lactic acid, fructose, and many more!
Where Can You Get Kombucha?
The wonderful thing about Kombucha is that you can either buy it from your local natural health food store or make it at home in your own kitchen, controlling everything that happens during the fermentation process right down to the flavor.
The FDA cautions that home-brewed Kombucha can have adverse effects, such as metabolic acidosis or an upset stomach due to dangerous bacteria getting into the tea because of unsterile conditions. If buying your Kombucha from someone, make sure of the process in which they’re making it and the conditions that they brew and store in.
Home-brewed varieties start in one of two ways; either by purchasing a Scoby (Kombucha mothers’ starter) from someone whom has already started the process or by growing your own Scoby. Once you’ve done that, you’re ready to start the fermenting process, which can take 7-14 days in a clean jar. After the fermenting process, you’re ready to enjoy this globally renowned health drink that can cure most illnesses from A-Z.
There’s a reason this “elixir of life” has survived for centuries and around the globe! Try it for yourself today!
