What is Kombucha?
Kombucha is fermented tea, naturally rich in probiotics and healthy acids. Also known as the “Immortal Health Elixir.”
I’ve been seeing people talk about this healthy drink for a few months now. I’m pretty sure I’m late to the party, but hey…better late than never, right? For most of my life, and for as long as I could take care of myself, I’ve always been hesitant to take medicine and OTC drugs. Not too sure why this was, but it’s more trusted to do things the natural way in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong, now that I’m in my 30’s, if I get a tension headache, a lay-down-method isn’t always in my favor or conducive to my schedule anymore, so I typically pop a couple of ibuprofen’s to knock it right out. But when it comes to my overall health and wellness, it’s crucial for me to know how to alleviate and prevent short and long-term illnesses with natural remedies.
You ever wonder if some of these get rich quick schemes ever work for people? I sit back and wonder if those pop up ads I get bombarded with have any validity or truth. I never take the time to discover this, but what I do take my time to look into is how to be a healthier me. So I finally decided to see for myself what the ancient Chinese drink was all about. I went to Whole Foods and bought the Health-Ade brand because I saw a chef and another trusted source rave about it. Keep in mind, Kombucha is sold in many types and labels, however not all are created equally. Health ade prides themselves on being the best tasting and highest quality you can buy.
