What is Kombucha and why is it good for you?
In a world of health-conscious adults kombucha has proven to be the next big thing.
Worldwide we’re becoming increasingly more aware of what we’re putting into our bodies and how our bodies feel after as a result.
However, there’s a new brew on the block and boy, are you going to want to get to know him.
No longer are people reaching for the green kale smoothie, they’re by-passing the Avocados and sipping a kombucha drink on their early morning commute.
But, in case you’re not sure, what exactly is kombucha and why is it good for you?
Kombucha has been around since 221 BC in China during the Tsin dynasty where it was often referred to as, “The tea of immortality”.
Fast forward a couple thousand years and Ronald Reagan, the 40th President of the United States began drinking Kombucha in the 1980’s after hearing of its health benefits after he was diagnosed with colon cancer.
Since then kombucha has been on the rise. With widespread recognition for its superfood status in the U.S, it’s slowly but surely making its mark on the UK.
Traditional kombucha is essentially a fermented tea, consisting of live yeasts containing a large quantity of naturally occurring good bacteria.
However, the brew has had a 21st century twist. Raw of the Wild have created a super kombucha created out of fresh raw ingredients, containing over 60 active yeasts – 30 times the amounts found in pro-biotic yoghurts and more than other kombucha products in the market today.
As well as containing oodles of pro-biotics, Raw of the Wild also contains pre-biotics, something unheard of before. The power in pre-biotics lies in their ability to massively amplify the goodness of pro-biotic action on your gut.
In other words, you’ve just found your gut’s new best friend.
Most kombucha drinks are known to suffer from a number of off-puts for the health-conscious, like a tart taste and floating bits which are at risk of fermenting and becoming alcoholic.
Raw of the Wild have ironed out these problems. Due to the balance of acidity, Raw of the Wild’s drinks taste good and are bit-free, meaning there’s no accidental fermenting time.
