Good gut health is an essential key to maintaining wellbeing by enhancing immune function and improving good digestion. This is where probiotic rich Kombucha steps in...
Without well-functioning gut flora, the gut becomes unprotected and malnourished and here at The Probiotic Kitchen we believe that having healthy insides will yield outer radiance. So what on earth is Kombucha? It is a cultured living drink that is said to be naturally energising and detoxifying for both the body and mind. It is created by the aerobic fermentation of a careful blend of green and black tea which is then mixed with raw organic cane sugar. A SCOBY (an acronym that stands for symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast which looks like a giant gelatinous pancake) metabolises these sugars into a unique range of health giving enzymes, probiotics, B vitamins and antioxidants.
Kombucha has been shown to be excellent accelerator of gut healing and is also widely regarded as an overall digestive health tonic. It has shown in countless studies to assist in the treatment of joint stiffness, heartburn, arthritis, depression and candida. It is also known as an excellent detoxifier and because of it's B vitamin properties it is a great product to give an overall energy boost. Kombucha has been said to have originated in China in 221 BC during the Tsin Dynasty and has been referred to as "The Tea of Immortality" which has been consumed in Eastern Europe, Russia and Japan for several centuries.
At The Probiotic Kitchen we use traditional brewing methods with a modern fresh approach that allows our Kombucha to capture the clean simplicity and flavour of the pure organic ingredients. Our careful fermentation means we are proud to create brews that are filled with active microbes and flora that remains completely raw and packed with nutritional integrity.
By consuming Kombucha, which is unpasteurised, vegan and organic (also happily non-GM), you can provide the body with a concentrated form of natural probiotics and give the slip to sugary, low-quality dairy and soy-based probiotic yoghurts and drinks.
