So what is Kombucha?
Quite simply, it is a fermented sweet tea. The fermentation process begins with the introduction of a SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast). The SCOBY feeds on the sugar and the caffeine in the brew and produces a delicious sweet/sour beverage which is extraordinarily rich in probiotics, beneficial enzymes, acids and vitamins. These are the building blocks which our microbiome needs to help our bodies function at an optimal level and people engaging in sports can experience a natural increase in performance.
As a probiotic, natural energy drink, kombucha is perfect for anyone who wants to look after their health and wellbeing. Anecdotal evidence points to the natural detoxification properties of kombucha which can help to rid your body of harmful additives, preservatives and other chemical nasties in our food chain that accumulate over a period of time. It is also gluten free, low in sugar and calories (typically just 45-50 calories per bottle) and chock full of antioxidants and vitamins, making it a healthy alternative to those nasty sugar and chemical laden drinks. It’s also dairy free making it suitable for both vegans and vegetarians.
The origins of Kombucha go back to 221 BC and was first brewed in Northern China and Russia (known as tea kvass). Kombucha has been known to have a highly beneficial effect on fighting degenerative diseases such as arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux and even cancer.
Whilst we are not promoting Kombucha as a ‘cure’ for anything, there is lots of anecdotal evidence that it will certainly improve many health conditions. Over recent decades, the food and drinks that we consume have been pumped with additives, preservatives, chemical stabilisers and anti-biotics. We believe that these additives which have been used to increase shelf life, have had a profound effect on our microbiome – did you ever hear of Irritable bowel syndrome 20 years ago?
Having suffered with arthritis in my feet for some years, I was advised to try Nutra Kombucha, an old Chinese remedy. Having tried it for a few months, I have found a remarkable change in my ability to walk. I no longer limp and overall feel years younger. It is remarkable stuff and I will continue to use it for as long as I am feeling the benefits.Raymond TunstallCustomer
After having a hip replacement and starting to recover, I was then diagnosed with inflammatory
Arthritis. This was painful and uncomfortable and I found going up and downstairs slow and awkward… I was recommended to try Nutra Kombucha… after 2 months I really can’t believe how well I feel and how my life is back to normal. There is still a little ache in my wrists but a lot of the time I forget about it as it is so minimal.Graham PhilipsonCustomer
I have a condition called C.M.T. There is no cure or treatments to relieve it, it causes chronic fatigue and constant pain. I know there is no treatable help, but with Kombucha, which is purely natural, I have found has helped me and relieved to a good degree, the fatigue and pain. It also gives me a feeling of wellbeing within myself.Geoff ReardonCustomer
