There is a reason Kombucha is known as the “Immortal Health Elixir”. It contains vitamins, minerals, and enzymes that are beneficial to the body. It originated in the Far East around 2,000 years ago and it’s health benefits are endless.

So what exactly is Kombucha?

Kombucha is a raw, fermented, Probiotic and naturally carbonated tea. It contains black tea, sweetener  (cane sugar, fruit, or honey) and SCOBY (Symbiotic Colony Of Bacteria and Yeast) which aids the fermentation process. It then becomes naturally carbonated after it ferments.

The liver is a main organ, and it is constantly working to filter the blood coming from the digestive system to the rest of the body. Kombucha helps to protect the liver from toxins, despite being exposed to them. Kombucha contains Glucaric acid which benefits the liver and aids in detoxification.

Kombucha controls free radicals and keeps them from damaging the body. It is naturally high in antioxidants and it contains D-saccharic acid- 1,4- lactone (DSL) which has very strong antioxidant properties. Kombucha is also beneficial for cell detox and contains Vitamin C.
