Who doesn’t crave a sip of soda now and then (Sprite all the way!)….and even though we know how HORRID soda is for us we still crave it’s fizzy goodness. If you crave those fizzy drinks then you might as well crave a healthy one, right? Stop reaching for soda and start reaching (or making) for kombucha. It’s all the rave and who doesn’t want to keep up-to-date on what’s “in”.
You might’ve heard some stuff about kombucha being full of probiotics and healthy for your gut, but let’s see if you knew any of these facts!
- Kombucha can cause a detox phase. A lot of people don’t get enough probiotics and fermented foods in their diet, so when probiotics are introduced they immediately start working to detox all the toxins that have been built up in you for years and years. Most people that go through the detox phase will notice headaches, fever, diarrhea, mood swings and more. This is one of the best parts because you KNOW you’re cleaning and detoxing your entire body (and it’ll all pass)!!
- You need bacteria. There is “good” bacteria and, of course, “bad” bacteria – just like there’s good and bad wine and chocolate – you need the good bacteria to help you absorb nutrients and enzymes that are essential. If you have a ‘sweet tooth’ you are most likely overrun with “bad” bacteria – such as Candida – and consuming “good” bacteria will help displace the “bad” bacteria. Kombucha is full of “good” bacteria.
- Kombucha A.K.A. The Tea Beast. Bet you’ve never heard that name before, huh? Yeah, me neither! Kombucha has taken on so many different names over the centuries and a couple are pretty awesome. Some other funky names include: Tea Mould, Russian Jelly-fish, Tea Beer, Spumonto, and The Remedy of Immortality. Kombucha has been through so many different names and through so many different cultures it must be something pretty great.
