Tea for Your Gut
For those with chronic abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and constipation, getting a daily dose of probiotics is very beneficial in combatting your symptoms. Kombucha tea contains healthy bacteria and probiotics, and it has been promoted for centuries as a healing tonic for intestinal disorders and an overall booster of the immune system. Users of kombucha also claim the tea detoxifies the body and will help repair and balance the body after detoxification. Kombucha is made by fermenting sugar-sweetened black tea and the kombucha culture, which is made of yeast and bacteria. This elixir consumes the sugar and results in a fermented tea containing acetic acid, traces of alcohol, and beneficial bacteria.
Disclosure: Some people who have brewed their own kombucha tea have suffered serious and life-threatening side effects because preparation methods vary and the tea may contain contaminants such as molds and fungi. We recommend using premade and trusted products. Check out our picks below:
