So, wtf is Kombucha? You’ve seen it in the grocery store, you see all the health crazy vegan people raving about it. But.. what is it?!?! Why is everyone obsessed with it? Why do you need it?
WHAT: “a beverage produced by fermenting sweet tea with a culture of yeast and bacteria” I know it sounds kind of gross, but companies like Humm Kombucha have it in unique flavors that makes it taste pretty good.
1- It promotes vaginal health. Kombucha is full of love cultures known as probiotics. The probiotics help keep the pH in your vag balanced. Kombucha can help prevent yeast infections and BV before they even start by keeping good bacteria in your cooch.
2- Kombucha is full of antioxidants. What does this mean for you? The antioxidants help reduce inflammation in the body (which is the root of most disease). It boosts your immune system so you’re better able to fight diseases.
3- It may help improve mental health. Kombucha contains B12 which is known to increase energy and contributes to overall mental well being
4- It can promote weightloss— Kombucha helps boost your metabolism.
5- I saved the best for last. It is one of the best things you can do for your gut. Not only does it detox, but it provides you with all the good bacteria your stomach needs to fight off all the bad bacteria we put into it daily. It helps with IBS, constipation, stomach ulcers, and overall a healthy gut boosts your immunity.
So…. when are you heading out to grab a bottle?
