I am sure you have all heard of this crazy drink before and I am equally as sure you probably associate it with healthy hipsters, but trust me when I say it doesn't taste as funky as the name sounds and you wouldn't want to miss out on the health benefits it provides! I will first give you a summary of the health benefits Kombucha provides and then talk about my favourite brand MOJO KOMBUCHA.
The following is a list of the many benefits Kombucha can provide to you!
DETOXIFICATION – Kombucha has the ability to counteract liver cell toxicity! One study showed that the liver cells were protected from oxidative injury and actually maintained their normal physiology, in spite of being exposed to a toxin! WOW!
DIGESTION – Kombucha has high levels of probiotics and enzymes which support digestion.
Some research has even shown kombucha’s ability to prevent and heal leaky gut and stomach ulcers and in some instances it has proven to be as effective as drugs, which are commonly prescribed for heartburn, GERD and ulcers!
ENERGY – Would you believe me if I said Kombucha contains IRON? Iron is released from the black tea during the fermentation process of making Kombucha and it also contains some caffeine and b-vitamins, which can energize the body! Through a special process known as chelation, the iron released helps boost blood hemoglobin, improve oxygen supply to tissues and stimulate the energy-producing process at the cellular level.
IMMUNITY – Kombucha has the ability to control free radicals, decrease oxidative stress and in turn increase immunity! It is thought that the vitamin C is the main protecting factor against cell damage, inflammatory diseases, tumors and overall depression of the immune system.
JOINT CARE - Kombucha can help heal, repair and prevent joint damage as it is packed with glucosamines, which increase synovial hyaluronic acid production! This supports the preservation of collagen and prevents arthritic pain.
WEIGHT LOSS – Kombucha has been found to improve metabolism and limit fat accumulation, due to being high in acetic acid and polyphenols, which are proven to help increase weight loss.
MOJO Kombucha is a natural, lightly sparkling living health drink. It begins with tea, which is then brewed, based on the recipe of an ancient handmade elixir that is created by a unique fermentation recipe. A living Kombucha culture, also referred to as a SCOBY or Mother, transforms the original organic ingredients into an effervescent, refreshing elixir that is brimming with probiotics, living enzymes and organic acids. Kombucha is wonderful for the health of your gut, and said to assist in balancing the mind, the body and the spirit.

I find Kombucha is a GREAT alternative to soft drink, with its bubbly properties and sweet taste, it is a SUPER refreshing drink for the Summer and can be a great addition to punches, alcoholic mixers and even spiders! hehe!
MOJO Kombucha can be bought in most supermarkets, though I commonly find it in Supabarn, IGA and COSTCO!
