Kombucha, Kombucha, Kombucha! If you say that in your inner cheerleader voice it just sounds amazing!
I digress. So unless you live under a rock you've heard of this miracle drink. This probiotic powerhouse, this makes my tummy all better, taste a little strange, but some how amazing, drink.
So what is Kombucha, and why should you care? It's a brewed fermented probiotic powerhouse. Wait what's that you say? I can pop some pills or eat some yogurt and get the same goodness. Well you're wrong, stinky pants, banana head wrong. Again I digress...
While yogurt has about 10-30 grams of probiotics per serving, Kombucha has at least 10,000 per 12 ounce serving. Yes you read that right 10,000!
And now the point of all this excitement. Your health starts with your stomach. Think about it, it filters your main source of energy, it regulates what goes where, and is one of the first lines of defense when your body is under attack. If you paid even a tiny bit of attention in health class you learned that our stomachs hold good and bad bacteria, if either one is out of balance it can cause all kinds of trouble. And it can take one tiny thing to throw off that balance. Poor food choice, stress, antibiotic regiment, nasty stomach virus.
But have no fear, probiotics to the rescue !
And why not try it in a tasty, beverage that can be enjoyed in various different flavors. It is a life saver in my house hold. I've seen it knock out stomach bugs in my house in a matter of hours. It reduces blotting, and if nothing else I can say to you, when I don't t drink it, my body knows the difference.
Now being the crunchy Momma I am,I brew my own, but for the rest of you nuggets it can be easily be bought at most grocery stores for about $2.99 for a two serving bottle.
Try it for a week, I promise it is life changing.
