What the heck is kombucha?! We’ve been seeing it everywhere – mostly taking over our local Whole Foods – and our coworkers swear by it. We’ve jumped on the bandwagon a few times, not really knowing what it is or what it does – just that it’s trendy. But it’s time we face the facts about kombucha.
Kombucha is sweetened tea that’s been fermenting for one to three weeks. The result? A fizzy, tangy, vinegary, yet fruity concoction. And people are guzzling the stuff down. It’s filled with types of bacteria that are actually good for your gut. And there are a slew of health benefits to drinking the stuff regularly. It boosts your energy, your immunity, and provides tons of healthy antioxidants.
It’s also a great source of probiotics, which means kombucha is basically like magic for your innards. And if you’re jumping on the kombucha train now, you’re in luck! Since the stuff is so dang trendy, companies are adding even more vitamins and things to make the tea concoction even better for you.
