What is it?
The elixir of life. The long forgotten fermented drink. Kombucha is safe and easy to brew at home and can be used in place of many different things. But really…. what is it? Essentially, kombucha is a tea that has been fermented for a period of days. These days can range from 5 – a number of months.

What Will Happen When I Start Drinking Kombucha?
A lot of the time, people experience frequent bathroom visits. You know, I’m just going to say it, people find that they poop more.
Acne, rashes, and headaches will occur during the first month. This is your body detoxifying. I got more pimples on my face (even though the reason I was taking Kombucha was to clear them up). But they will not last. These symptoms should disappear after a few months.

These symptoms should disappear after a few months. Your body had been riddled with “garbage”, it has to come out somewhere.
After the detox period, Kombucha makes you feel wonderful. Its a great pick me up and a way to get healthy bacteria and a range of vitamins in your diet.
Why Kombucha Works.
As an adaptogenic tonic, kombucha contains elements that offer nutritional and digestive support, strengthen the immune system, and assist in removing impurities from the blood and organs. Thank the Scoby for this.
