The Benefits of Booch

You've probably noticed it lately in every grocery store. Kombucha. What is it? It's basically sweetened tea, fermented using a SCOBY (Symbiotic Colony Of Bacteria and Yeast). It gets its carbonation from the process of yeast metabolizing sugar into carbon monoxide. Because it is fermented, it is high in natural probiotics, which gives it an immense number of health benefits.
Probiotics are live bacterial culture which are critical to balanced intestinal flora and a healthy gut. I took a Kombucha Making Workshop today with Ashleigh Norris, Holistic Nutritionist and #girlboss behind The Soulful Sprout. She taught me SO many more benefits of Kombucha.

She taught us that Kombucha helps bring the body back into balance. It is full of acids and enzymes that the body needs to function properly, and it's an adaptogen -- something that normalizes the body and protects it from environmental stressors. It's an amazing and powerful drink. Just one cup a day can have so many positive effects on your body.
Here are some amazing benefits of Kombucha:
  • Improves digestion
  • Reduces bloating
  • Balances the body's PH level
  • Detoxes the liver
  • Increases metabolism
  • Alleviates constipation
  • Increases energy
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Helps with headaches and migraines
  • Regenerates healthy cells
  • Reduces kidney stones
  • Improves eye sight
  • Reduces eczema
  • Helps with heart health
  • Rebuilds connective tissue
  • Natural antioxidant

If you are interested in learning more and want to save money by making your own kombucha, I highly recommend you take Ashleigh's workshop. She holds one every few months, where you get to try some of her homemade kombucha, learn the home brewing process a d take home a starter SCOBY. Her workshops sell out quickly so I suggest registering as soon as you see one that works with your schedule.

She also holds fermentation workshops, a DIY homemade chemical-free cleaning products workshop, a foraged foods workshop and MORE. Check out her full list of available workshops HERE!
