What is Kombucha?
Kombucha is a living health drink made by fermenting tea and sugar with the kombucha culture, known as a SCOBY – or Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast. The sugar is used up during the fermentation process so it’s very low in sugar by the time it gets to you.
The B vitamins, probiotics, and enzymes kombucha contains are said to support immune function, digestion, metabolism, liver detoxification, skin and hair and even lift the mood.
For thousands of years people have been drinking Kombucha to promote gut health, aid digestion and liver function – or simply to alleviate a guilty conscience.
