So, you started drinking kombucha and you’re ready for those health benefits to kick in! Except for one small problem, you don’t exactly know what kombucha does for your body. That’s why we’re here! Here’s a breakdown of some of the top health benefits of drinking kombucha. Now get ready to feel amazing ????
The word antioxidant quite literally means anti-oxidant. But what is an oxidant and why don’t we want it in our body? Oxidants are a chemical reaction that can produce free radicals and cause harm if their levels become too high in your body. Put simply, an antioxidant is a molecule that can inhibit oxidation. So, what does that have to do with drinking Cove? Well, kombucha is loaded with antioxidants! If you’re all about the antioxidants, you might want to try our Blueberry Pomegranate booch ????
2. Probiotics, Probiotics, Probiotics
Potentially one of the major reasons many people drink booch is for the probiotics! Probiotics provide your gut with healthy bacteria like lactobacillus which is simply, lactic acid. These bacteria can help to improve and aid in many health concerns, including digestion, inflammation and even weight loss.
3. Kombucha Can Kill Bacteria
One of the main and most common organic acids produced during the fermentation process of kombucha is acetic acid. While our booch might not taste acidic, acid is a byproduct of fermentation. Lucky for us, acetic acid is a powerful component that can potentially kill harmful microorganisms! Acetic acid is also abundant in vinegar and is why it makes such a great cleaning compound! Bye-bye germs!
4. Probiotics Help Aid Digestion and IBS
Have gut problems, you’re not alone! IBS is real and it’s a pain in the butt…pun intended. Fermented foods have long been proven to help aid in regulating bowel movements by partially pre-digesting the sugars found in hard-to-digest foods. Saccharomyces boulardii is a popular probiotic yeast that is known for treating diarrhea as reported on by The New York Times. Thank me later ????
