Kombucha Benefits

Kombucha – you either hate it or you love it, or you grow to love it after reading up on its benefits!  I definitely did not enjoy Kombucha the first couple times I tried it, but then after learning about how many health benefits I could get from this one simple drink that comes in a million different variations and flavours, I was hooked!

Kombucha Benefits:

  • Detoxifies
  • Aids digestion
  • Improves gut health
  • Fights candida overgrowth
  • Enhances mental clarity
  • Improves mood
  • Boosts immunity
  • Liver support
  • Treats joint issues
  • Weight loss

Liver support was the main reason why I started drinking Kombucha.  My Naturopath tested my liver health and it wasn’t doing so well, so she suggested that I drink apple cider vinegar in water before every meal.  Unfortunately, to me, it tastes like a$$ so that wasn’t something I was able to maintain…to be honest, I couldn’t even bring myself to start it.  Then I came across this Organic Raw Kombucha “Gingerade” at Costco and bought a case!  It’s basically made up of apple cider vinegar and ginger – both of which are very healthy for you.  I don’t enjoy eating ginger, but I’ve come to enjoy drinking ginger juice when mixed into the right drinks.  It’s so good for you, and will help balance out the yin and the yang in your body.

Kombucha drinks sometimes come with chia seeds as well, which add a different texture (slimy but crunchy) and other benefits.  Chia seeds are a great source of protein, fibre and omegas!  Definitely worth trying, as strange as it may seem at first.
