Is kombucha a health drink?
Ah, the age-old question. What is healthy? Well, the healthiest drink on the planet has to be water. Followed closely by say 一 tea (the Brits certainly like to think so).
Kombucha is the best of both. Fermented tea. So make of that what you will.
As yet there are not enough trials to back up our views that kombucha is the elixir of life. There are however a few indications that it could be. The internet is a wonderful ressource to read about the benefits of what you can find in unpasteurized kombucha...
Here are some of our favorites:
- Antioxidants (from green tea or coffee for example) can protect your body's cells from damage caused by free radicals.
- Organic acids from fermentation can have a cleansing effect on your gut
- Living bacteria are known to aid digestion
- Lower sugar content compared to other soft drinks (2,5g/100ml vs +10g/100ml)
