Today I Bought Kombucha Tea To Finally Try

Well it isn’t what I expected.

But then I didn’t really know what to expect.

It’s sour bite yet slightly sweet was an odd but like able taste.

And it’s great for the gut.

Known as the “Immortal Health Elixir” by the Chinese and originating in the Far East around 2,000 years ago, kombucha is a beverage with tremendous health benefits extending to your heart, your brain and (especially) your gut.

How does this ancient drink make such a huge difference in your body?

Due to the fermentation process involved in creating kombucha, it contains a large number of healthy bacteria known as probiotics.

These bacteria line your digestive tract and support your immune system, as they absorb nutrients and fight infection and illness.

Since 80 percent of your immune system is located in your gut, and the digestive system is the second largest part of your neurological system, it’s no surprise that the gut is considered the “second brain.”

Drinking kombucha every day can help you to maintain peak immune health, which trickles down into an impressive number of benefits for your overall health.

What Is Kombucha?

Kombucha is a fermented beverage consisting of black tea and sugar (from various sources, including cane sugar, fruit or honey) that’s used as a functional, probiotic food.

It contains a colony of bacteria and yeast that are responsible for initiating the fermentation process once combined with sugar.

After fermentation, kombucha becomes carbonated and contains vinegar, B vitamins, enzymes, probiotics and a high concentration of acid (acetic, gluconic and lactic).

These bacteria are known as “cellulose-producing bacteria,” meaning they produce cellulose, which acts as a shield to cells
