"Clueless" Benefits Of Kombucha

So I've been trying a lot of kombucha brands lately and I'm loving the taste of most of them. I'm not going to lie, a few years ago I tried a few and thought they were nasty. But I've been slowly trying them again since more and more brands are popping up with tasty varieties. After going to the Tone It Up Tour, there was a buy one get one free coupon in my swag bag and I wasted no time using it. I just wish they could've threw in a couple more coupons in there for me. Just saying. 😊 

Anyways, I found a new drink that I'm so in love with. I rarely drink soda and kombucha is a great substitute for it. It's a drink that I much rather have instead of those crappy sugary drinks. What is Kombucha? Simply put, it originated in China and is a fermented health elixir made with black or green tea that is loaded with gut friendly ingredients. Kombucha contains bacteria but don't fret it's the friendly kind of bacteria known as probiotics. The kind of bacteria that keeps you from getting sick. 

Benefits Of Kombucha

-Strengthens Immune Systems
-Gives You Energy
-Helps With Weight Loss
-Relieves Joint Pain
-Helps The Digestive System
-Detoxs The Body
-Improves Mental Health and the list goes on and on

Should you get it pasteurized or un-pasteurized? I prefer to drink unpasteurized kombucha because most of the good bacteria is present. Pasteurization kills off most of the health benefits. When buying make sure you're reading the ingredients and that it's not loaded with tons of sugar. Too much sugar is a no-no for me. Check out this article I did to see the difference between Pasteurized VS Un-Pasteurized.

Clueless Tip: The ones with the least amount of sugar tends to taste better. So try reaching for the ones with low sugar content. I notice some brands have stevia and for the life of me don't understand why. That after taste makes it 👎😑. Keep it tart and tangy please.

I'm not loyal to any kombucha brands but what I've tried so far is pretty good. The price range is $2.50-$5.00 for most. If you're a soda drinker, I would suggest swapping to get the health benefits that soda doesn't give. Yes, I know you can get a liter of soda for $1 or less but your gut and overall health will thank you. With so many brands out there, I'd like to know...

What are your favorite brand of kombucha? Have you ever tried kombucha?
