Kombucha 101

Written on September 8th, 2014 by april. Filed under Blog

The Veggie Wagon is now making our own Kombucha!! We are on our 2nd batch- this one is Black Cherry. We are offer a kombucha with chia seeds and a kombucha without chia seeds. They are quite delicious if I do say so myself.  But the bigger question is what is Kombucha? Kombucha is an “ancient fermented tea beverage” that has a natural effervescence (like bubbly carbonation) that is full of probiotics, antioxidants, B vitamins and so much more.It has roots in China, specifically the Qin Dynasty in 220 BCE with proven records of it travelling to Russia – eventually thriving to the health-conscious hippy communities of the 1970’s.

The next thing you are asking yourself is why should I drink this fermented concoction? Kombucha is known for being a great source of probiotics (healthy bacteria) for the intestines, with loads of vitamins, and detoxification properties to cleanse the body and support a healthy immune system. – To learn more check out: http://www.eatlifewhole.com/2013/06/what-is-kombucha-and-is-it-really-good-for-you/#sthash.7gAKXVvR.dpuf
