Kombucha Benefits

PJ Kombucha

The benefits of Kombucha are numerous:

  • The drink contains live cultures and prebiotics. This means that it contains billions of naturally occurring beneficial bacteria and provides nutrients and a healthy habitat for them to thrive.
  • The fermentation process results in enzymes, bacterial acids and other metabolites that act as powerful detoxifiers.
  • The fermentation process increases the concentration of naturally occurring compounds such as polyphenols and catechins that act as antioxidants, eliminating free radical damage on the body.
  • The low pH value has antimicrobial effects. This inhibits a range of Gram +/- microorganisms meaning that you are at a much lower risk of infections and illnesses.

How Does This Help You?

Some of these properties act to:

  • Boost your immune system
  • Create a healthier gut environment
  • A more efficient digestive system
  • Helps improve the overall health and wellbeing of the body

Some of the previous mentioned properties alone have a knock on effect when you look at the importance of gut health. For example, we now know that up to 80% of your immune system is found in your gut and that your gut microbiome can heavily influence your psychological state in regards to your mood, anxiety levels and stress.

A healthy and diverse gut environment can go a long way in helping improve anyone’s life in many different ways.
