Kombucha & Probiotics For A Healthy Gut
As far as drinks go, Kombucha is up there on the hipster scale with green juice and nitro coffee. It is nearly impossible to venture into a health food shop (or grocery store) without being accosted with bottles of the fizzy fermented tea known as the ‘Immortal Health Elixir’ by the Chinese and beloved in the Far East for over 2000 years.
Benefits of Kombucha
High in B vitamins, organic acids and antioxidants, Kombucha is a rich source of natural probiotics, produced during the fermentation process. Probiotics are required by the digestive system to balance microbiota, decreasing symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, digestive discomfort and issues with bowel regularity. Studies show probiotic supplementation also influences food cravings and weight gain, blood glucose control, insulin response and mood – making them an important addition to your daily health regime.
Unlike general probiotic supplements, Kombucha also contains enzymes and bacterial acids like gluconic acid, which binds to toxins to help expel them from the body. Acetic acid, also present in Kombucha, is a potent antibacterial able to kill many potentially harmful food-borne microorganisms. If that’s not enough, Kombucha is also rich in powerful antioxidants that fight free radicals and repair damaged cells. A huge boost for detoxification, damage repair and digestion!
Be Mindful of Price & Sugar Content
Unfortunately, this remedy is prohibitive due to cost – a daily dose of Kombucha is around $5, and this adds up to an additional $150 per month in expenses. (It may just be replacing Avocado toast as the primary obstacle to millennial home-ownership…).
Thankfully, Kombucha is now available in an easy to use capsule alternative. It’s lower in sugar than the bottled option and with the added benefit of an extra 10 billion + probiotics to boost gut health, weight loss and mood, for a much lower price.
