First, there’s all the benefits of detoxification, such as healthy livers and cancer prevention. One of kombucha’s greatest health benefits is its ability to detox the body. It is rich in many of the enzymes and bacterial acids your body produces and/or uses to detox your system, thus reducing your pancreatic load and easing the burden on your liver. Kombucha is very high in Glucaric acid, and recent studies have shown that glucaric acid helps prevent cancer. The cancer can be warded off by detoxifying one’s environment and life (going 100% organic, removing chemical cleaners and agents in your home, changing your diet to be at least 80% raw or fermented, etc.) Central to the detoxification process was drinking Kombucha regularly.
Next, there’s all the benefits of the glucosamines it contains, such as preventing or treating all forms of arthritis. Glucosamines increase synovial hyaluronic acid production. Hyaluronic acid functions physiologically to aid preservation of cartilage structure and prevent arthritic pain, with relief comparable to NSAIDs and advantage over glucocorticoids. Hyaluronic acid enables connective tissue to bind moisture thousands of times its weight and maintains tissue structure, moisture, lubrication and flexibility and lessens free radical damage, while associated collagen retards and reduces wrinkles.
Then, there’s all the benefits of the fact that it’s a probiotic beverage, such as improved digestion, fighting candida (harmful yeast) overgrowth, and the general health and well-being associated with this. As such, it’s noted for reducing or eliminating the symptoms of fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, etc.
Plus, it’s extraordinarily anti-oxidant rich, and you all know the benefits of anti-oxidants for boosting your immune system and energy levels.
My Favorite Kombucha brands:
[ Synergy Kombucha: All the flavours are really great, and I really enjoyed trying the Greens one today which has chlorophyll in it, but the Cranberry is a definite solid & reliable one to reach for ]
[ Rise Kombucha: I really like the Ginger and the Rose Hibiscus. The ginger is light and refreshing and the hibiscus has such a sweet flavour to it ]
