First lets answer the question: What is it?! Kombucha is any variety of fermented, lightly effervescent, sweetened tea drinks that are produced by fermenting tea using a "symbiotic 'colony' of bacteria and yeast" (SCOBY). It's not new by any means, but it's now becoming a staple choice in healthy drinks. We LOVE this trend and can only see great things if it continues.
So why should you drink this fermented tea? Let's do a quick list of health benefits:
naturally contains the probiotic lactobacillus, as well as B vitamins, organic acids, antioxidants, and enzymes.
help aid circulation, digestion, the immune system, and overall well being
The gut needs fermented food and drinks with healthy, raw strands of probiotics to process the nutrients you’re taking in, as well as ward of harmful bacteria; keeping your immune system top notch
We love our kombucha and we also love our friends that supply us with the good stuff. We are proud to stock a locally made kombucha in Bradley Beach, NJ by Fine Health Kombucha. These guys seriously know how to use a SCOBY. Their teas are all very distinct and delicious and the flavor combinations are truly awesome. We know stocking Fine Health Kombucha means it was made with love, and nothing tastes better than homemade! If you're ever a little further north be sure to stop in Bradley Beach for some kombucha on tap!
Your body, especially your gut, will thank you for this later. Hydration is such an important part of staying healthy and we can all agree that drinking enough water can be difficult. This is an AWESOME drink to have (not to replace water), but when you just need something with a little flavor. Maybe you gave up soda, or sweetened drinks and are looking for something to kick that craving. This is a great alternative to sugary processed junk drinks.
