As it's talked about more and more now, the gut is our second brain. The endocrine nervous system ( gut ) is made up of the same material that makes up our brain. With fermented foods becoming hugely popular over the past ten years, We now know a key to a healthy mind and body is having a thriving gut. Kombucha is known to boost these bacteria naturally. Here are a few other things Kombucha has been known to do for a human being.
Our kombucha is made with premium organic teas, tea is a plant and therefore the Kombucha contains all the adaptogenic goodness of the teas we use. With a full teabag worth of tea in each bottle, it's packed full of goodness. Adaptogens ( which contain antioxidants ) balance the body, reduce free radicals which in turn reduce stress on the body. They also boost energy and immunity. WOW.
Ever drink a Kombucha and you feel that little rumble in your stomach. This is a good thing, this means the Kombucha your drinking is real and has all the good acids and bacteria still left in it just like Kombucha would have been made in ancient China or Russia. Kombucha increases the gut acidity which in turn allows for nutrient absorption and better digestive passing.
It contains vitamins B1 ( thiamine), B6 and B12 all of which are known to help the body fight depression, stabilize mood and improve concentration. It also naturally contains Vitamin C which is in a very bioavailable format.
A type of acid called acetic acid, also found in vinegar, is produced when kombucha is fermented.
A study carried out in 2000 found that kombucha was able to kill microbes and help fight a range of bacteria. This suggests that it may help prevent infections by killing the bacteria that cause them before they are absorbed by the body.
It's not a fact but there is growing evidence to suggest drinking kombucha could help reduce the risk of cancer.
A 2008 study found that kombucha helped prevent the growth of cancer cells. Further research in 2013 found that kombucha decreased the survival of cancer cells. Both studies suggest kombucha could play a role in treating or preventing cancer.
