What Is A Kombucha Detox?
Kombucha is a fermented and effervescent sweet tea made with healthy, gut-friendly bacteria and yeast.
Believe it or not, kombucha has been used for thousands of years as a natural remedy for many common ailments and illnesses—from treating metabolic conditions, high blood pressure, diabetes, and even cancer. It’s loaded with all sorts of health benefits but is especially great for removing toxins and healing your digestive system!
In order for kombucha to possess its healing properties, it needs to ferment with a SCOBY (a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast) for 7-12 days. This is what turns the sugar from the original mixture into probiotics and ultimately, kombucha!
Probiotics are live microorganisms, or healthy gut bacteria, intended to restore the gut flora. They work with prebiotic fiber to fight off the bad bacteria that can cause gastrointestinal issues.
