Kombucha: What Is This Trendy Healthy Drink?

In Culture, Wellness by Regina GarcíaLeave a Comment

Although it’s been consumed for hundreds of years in some Asian cultures, lately it seems to have taken the place as the most popular restorative drink.

Kombucha’s Benefits

Its trendy rise is driven by the nutritional benefits of this fermented tea, and recently a 100% Mexican brand, has bet on its production with Vida Bebida. The fermentation is created by adding strains of bacteria, sugar and yeast to green or black tea. The main benefits of Kombucha tea are:

  • Creates a full body detox
  • Restores and revitalizes intestinal flora
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Helps reduce cholesterol levels
  • Hydrates
  • Rejuvenates cells

But what can be the downside of this drink? The flavor can be a little strong for those who aren’t acquainted, and if fermented wrongly (not the right amount of ingredients or too many days of fermentation) it might have too much alcohol or taste like vinegar. So when you buy the Vida Bebida bottle you can have the assurance that it has the right dose and the taste will be much better, specially when its combined with natural ingredients. Vida Bebida offers five refreshing flavors: Original, Citrus Ginger, Wild Blackberries, Hibiscus and Mate Energy.
