This is how we run into Kombucha and we discovered the many benefits we can get from this recently famous beverage.
What is Kombucha?
For those who are not familiar with it, Kombucha is a sweet, fizzy drink made of yeast, sugar, and fermented tea.
Inside every batch of kombucha, there is a diverse and cooperative ecosystem of microbes that work together to result as a beverage. The SCOBY is a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast which is mixed with black tea.
During the fermentation process, the yeast in the SCOBY breaks down the sugar in the tea and releases probiotic bacteria.
Get to know all the benefits of it.
This fizzy drink brings so many health benefits to your organism but also the acid and flavor you can add to it makes it so refreshing that it is a perfect beverage to have by the pool. Here are 5 benefits from Kombucha you should know:
Probiotics bacterias are similar to healthful bacteria that are found in the gut.
Consuming them will improve your gut health and your digestive system as well. Some research suggests they may help ease irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
2. Cancer risk.
There is growing evidence to suggest drinking kombucha could help reduce/prevent the risk of cancer. Although more research is needed studies have found its antioxidant properties help the body to get rid of substances that promote the growth of cancerous cells.
In the fermentation process, Kombucha creates an acid called acetic acid, which is also found in vinegar. This acid kills microbes and help fight a range of bacteria.
This is why it has been suggested it may help prevent infections by killing the bacteria that cause them before they are absorbed by the body.
4. Cardiovascular health.
Heart disease increases the risk of stroke or heart attack, but we all know healthy lifestyle changes can prevent your cardiovascular issues.
We all know a good healthy diet and exercise can save us from heart diseases, however, Kombucha is able to influence cholesterol levels because it lowers the levels of bad cholesterol and increases the levels of good cholesterol.
5. Boots Metabolism
Your metabolism is the process your body uses to make and burn energy from food. You rely on your metabolism to breathe, think, digest, circulate blood, keep warm in the cold, and stay cool in the heat.
Kombucha isn’t a miracle weight loss drink. But thanks to the epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a catechin found in the green tea of some types of kombucha, it may be a secret to a slightly faster metabolism.
So as you can see Kombucha is effervescent, tart, slightly sweet and delicious beverage with nothing but benefits to get from, and so far guests are loving it. We hope you will enjoy it as well.
