DIY Kombucha (aka the gut love elixir)
Kombucha is a fermented tea. Similar to the brewing process of wine or beer, kombucha is "brewed" or fermented with sugar, tea as the liquid and yeast. The yeast also known as the scoby is the fermenting agent that carries all of the nutritional qualities to this drink. fermented foods or drinks like kombucha hold live bacteria cultures that are important for healthy gut function which in turns leads to a strong functioning immune system.
I personally like to make kombucha myself because it is wayy cheaper and I can also control how long it ferments. Many of the products on the market ferment for less time and have a sweeter taste which means there is a higher sugar content. The more you ferment the tea, the more medicinal properties it will have. Here is my home recipe. Enjoy!
