Kombucha (pronounced kom-BOO-cha) is a handmade Chinese fermented tea. Some people think of it as a tea others call it a magical elixir.
I came across Kombucha (produced by Millenium Products) at my neighborhood Sprouts Farmers Market. The pretty colored labels caught my attention so I decided to try one. I was feeling a little under the weather and had no energy. Well, that all changed after just a few sips. Suddenly, I felt like I had more energy; in fact, I felt quite perky. It was like I had just been given a B-12 shot or something.
Kombucha is loaded with probiotics, amino acids, and antioxidants. All of these combine to restore balance and vitality in the body. It supports digestion, metabolism, immune system, appetite control, liver function, etc. I can tell you that I swear by it. I’ve used it myself when I feel even the inkling of a cold coming on and since I’ve started drinking it, I have not been sick. Well, I take that back, I ran out of Kombucha for a couple of weeks and sure enough, I got an upper respiratory infection. I immediately went to the store and picked up several bottles in a variety of flavors and drank one to two per day. I definitely attribute my quick recovery to the Kombucha. During my battle with insulin resistance, I had to daily injections of medication which made me very nauseous, I drank Gingerberry to combat that feeling and it worked like a charm. Hmmm…I bet it would be great to help curb the effects of a few too many at one of the many holiday parties I’m sure you’ll go to ;-o
The creator of Kombucha, GT Dave, started bottling Kombucha after his mother’s success from drinking it during her battle with breast cancer. GT was touched by how Kombucha had helped his mom and was inspired to begin making it from the kitchen of his house. Being only a teenager he had no business plan, just a desire to share this gift with anybody who could benefit from it. Millenium Products mission statement is:
“To combine the wisdom of ancient medicinal foods with the resources of the modern day to create products that uplift and enlighten the health of all those who enjoy them.”
Like GT, I believe in the healing power of natural remedies. Our bodies are subjected to so much toxicity; environmental, emotional or dietary impurities weaken and compromise our immune system. And I believe that drinking Kombucha helps boost the immune system and detoxifies the body. Like the bottle says, rejuvenate, restore, revitalize, replenish, regenerate, and that is exactly what Kombucha does.
Well, I can tell you that I’m 100% sold, Kombucha IS a MAGICAL ELIXIR.
