The Magical Kombucha

If you haven’t heard about Kombucha, you are missing out on the endless debate. Does it really work? Is all the hype really necessary? Is it worth trying this exotic, exquisite drink?

Kombucha popularity continues to grow as this live, raw fermented black tea contains naturally occurring probiotics, enzymes and beneficial acids. Sold as energy boosters, teas, and supplements, it offers many health benefits but what exacltly is Kombucha?

Originated in China and later spread to Russia, Germany, Europe and the rest of the world, the kombucha culture is actually a symbiotic colony of bacteria and one or more yeasts. Kombucha contains multiple species of yeast and bacteria along with the organic acids, active enzymes, amino acids, and polyphenols produced by these microbes.

This ancient product contains antimicrobial and antioxidants and is known to help detoxify the body and energize the mind. As a result, large quantities of energy products have added kombucha as an ingredient. Plus, kombucha energy shots have rapidly gained new customers as users are satisfied with the results and the great tasting of this new healthy, natural energy booster. These shots contain a mix of kombucha and other natural energy enhancers such as guarana, ginseng, vitamins B5, B6 and B12. Even better, some products are made with live, raw and organic kombucha but, just like live probiotics, refrigeration is recommended to maintain maximum potency of the product. Kombucha supplements are generally recognized as safe conventional food products and can be a nice alterative to kick some energy in your busy lifestyle.
