I have to admit that I have an addiction to Kombucha!  Once upon a time it was diet Coke...I loved the carbonation and that's what I craved.  After I kicked that habit, I tried drinking sparkling water but it just wasn't the same and then, about 10 years ago, I found Kombucha!  I have absolutely no guilt drinking it!  One bottle contains two servings and is only 60 calories!

Kombucha is a fermented beverage that is made using a precise process involving tea, sugar, and a scabby (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast).  The scabby, which is also known as the mother, is a living home for (good) bacteria and yeast which help in the fermenting process.  After about seven to ten days, what results is a naturally carbonated delicious fermented drink with probiotics, enzymes, and other beneficial nutrients such as vitamin B and folate.

Kombucha is known for its many health benefits and is a fantastic substitute for sodas or alcohol.  Even though kombucha is made with sugar, the end product will only have a small amount remaining.

Kombucha has been part of a healthy lifestyle to many people to help improve digestion and gut health, to help clear up skin issues, and as a quick energy booster.  With kombucha gaining momentum in mainstrain health, it's worth giving it a try this fall and having a fresh way to stay hydrated and feel your best!

Here are 10 reasons to add kombucha to your daily routine!

It tastes like fizzy refreshing sunshine.

It makes a great afternoon pick me up.

It is a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth.

This tea contains powerful antioxidants that help protect the body.

It can be used as a mixer for cocktails and as a rejuvenating brew the next morning.

It can be a swap for a cocktail altogether.

You can easily make it yourself.

There are so many great flavors to try that you will never get bored!
