Although just beginning to gain prominence in the United States, the health benefits of Kombucha tea have long been recognized in Asia and Europe.
Ongoing medical research on the many nutrients and acids of Kombucha has cast light upon the positive results that this tea can provide to our bodies and minds.
Probiotics and Antioxidants: Kombucha tea is naturally fermented with a living colony of beneficial bacteria. Detoxifying probiotics and antioxidants help immunity by optimizing healthy gut flora, easing the burden on the liver, and may be a useful tool against inflammation, obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.
Enzymes: The digestive enzymes found only in raw foods improve digestion, fight candida (harmful yeast) overgrowth, and elevate mental clarity and mood stability that effect depression and anxiety.
Glucaric Acids: Recent studies have shown that glucaric acid can be helpful in the fight against cancer.
Glucosamine: A treatment for all forms of arthritis, glucosamine is linked with cartilage structure, moisture, lubrication, and flexibility.
B Vitamins: These essential vitamins provide support for the body's metabolic functions including overall energy, utilization of carbohydrates, heart health, healthy hair, skin, and nails. B vitamins are important in the balance of stress, anxiety, and depression, memory, and PMS by breaking down and flushing out excess estrogen from the body.
