Kombucha is celebrated by many for its gut health benefits, but is it really as healthy as you think?
What is Kombucha?
Once the Kombucha is fermented, new organic compounds are formed that have potent health benefits. It’s rich in B vitamins, probiotics enzymes, cellulose and antioxidants that help to protect the body.
Kombucha and Gut Health
Kombucha can be a source of gut-healthy bacteria. Kombucha inherently contains a species of lactobacillus bacteria (in the SCOBY) that can aid to populate the gut with immune and digestive-healthy properties.
Some animal models have shown that Kombucha could help prevent and heal stomach ulcers.
It can also help stop candida from overpopulating within the gut by restoring balance to the digestive system, with live probiotic cultures that help the gut repopulate with good bacteria while crowding out the candida yeast.
So should YOU drink it?
It is said that Chinese emperor Qin Shi Huang directed his alchemists to develop a longevity elixir to keep him young and healthy, and they developed a special concoction of kombucha, the ‘elixir of life’. So, get out there and try a Kombucha (or even make it at home). When it comes to supporting gut health, Kombucha doesn’t mess around.
