Why is kombucha so good for you?

In the last couple of years, kombucha has become one of the top trending health drinks on the market – And for a good reason too! You may have seen kombucha popping up in your local supermarket, service stations and cafes everywhere but not all ‘booch’ brands are made equally.

So what IS kombucha?

A healthy alternative to your regular soft drink, kombucha is a mix of tea fermented with a SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast) that turns into a delicious sightly fizzy probiotic soda. Don’t be alarmed if you see little floaty bits in your bottle, these are the live probiotic cultures that’s good for the gut!

  • It’s packed full of probiotics! Probiotics are often called “good” bacteria because they help to keep your gut healthy. A healthy gut flora improves digestion which can provide relief from digestive problems such as IBS and constipation.
  • It gives you energy! Kombucha contains small amounts of caffine from the tea.
  • Kombucha contains antioxidants which helps to boost your immune system and fights against free radicals that can damage your cells.

As mentioned, not all ‘booch brands are made equally. With all the different brands & bottles now out in the market, how is one to know which is the healthiest option to pick?
