What is Kombucha?
Kombucha has been called an elixir of health, the tea of immortality, a nectar of the gods, and an ancient drink. We just call it our favorite drink. For some people it is a way of life, for others it is a tasty and healthy pleasure, but what is kombucha?
Sparkling, sparkling, and known for its helpful probiotics, kombucha is a slightly fizzy drink made by combining sweet tea with bacteria and yeast. The result is a sometimes sweet, sometimes sour drink that is served cold. Fermented beverages like Austin Kombucha are high in B vitamins and good bacteria and help support digestive health.
Kombucha helps keep the body in balance, and a balanced body is a balanced mind! While many people still enjoy making homemade kombucha, most grocery stores now carry a wide and intrepid assortment of delicious and innovative Austin Kombucha flavors.
Probiotics are part of the family of "functional foods", which optimize health, not to mention the great nutritional contributions,
But, what are the benefits they bring to the body?
- Strengthen the immune system.
- Balance the intestinal flora.
- Stimulate the production of vitamins.
- Support digestion.
- They contribute to diarrhea, lactose intolerance, allergies and traveler's diarrhea, caused by eating contaminated food.
Probiotics are live microorganisms that, after ingestion of a food rich in them, such as Austin Kombucha, exert health benefits beyond basic natural nutrition.
Functions of probiotics
1.- They displace microorganisms harmful to health and prevent their reproduction.
2.- They collaborate in the formation of essential nutrients such as vitamins, enzymes and fatty acids.
3.- They stimulate the formation of lactic acid, decreasing the PH of the digestive tube.
4.- They favor the absorption of calcium, iron and magnesium.
5.- They reduce diarrhea due to antibiotics, which alter the balance of the intestinal flora, which is restored thanks to these microorganisms.
6.- Allows to reduce atopic dermatitis in allergic infants.
If consumed in sufficient quantities and consistently, probiotics make the following contributions to health:
Increase resistance to infections
Decrease the duration of diarrhea
They reduce lactose intolerance (promote digestion at the intestinal level).
Increased nutritional value (better digestion, increased absorption of vitamins and minerals)
They regulate intestinal motility (relieve constipation and irritable bowel syndrome, among others).
Maintenance of the integrity of the intestinal mucosa.
