Kombucha Tea is a fantastic dairy free probiotic drink. Home made is best as most of the commercial brands have been pasturised which kills the probiotics in the tea. It is really simple to make and once you have your own culture, you have a lifelong supply.
Home made Kombucha Tea is teaming with healthy gut loving bacteria and is great for gut health and digestion. As the Tea is naturally fermented with live colonies of bacteria and yeast it is a natural probiotic beverage. It is a well known fact that probiotics improve digestion. Having a good digestive system leads to many improved health benefits as good health begins in the gut. It is also rich in anti-oxidants which boosts your immune system.
Kombucha helps with detoxification. The tea is rich in enzymes and bacterial acids that you produce and may use to detoxify your body. This reduces the pancreatic load and eases the burden on your liver. Kombucha is high in Glucaric acid, which recent studies have shown helps prevent cancer.
I know that this website is about gut health, however I would like to also mention that it contains glucosamines which is a preventive and treatment for all forms of arthritis. Glucosamines increase synovial hyaluronic acid production which aids in the preservation of cartilage structure and preventing arthritic pain. It also reduces free radical damage. Hyaluronic acid maintains tissue structure, moisture, lubrication and flexibility.
