Kombucha 101

June 27, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$20

Kombucha is a fermented tea that has been consumed for thousands of years. Kombucha’s most popular origin story stretches back over 2000 years to China and it has been the subject of many 100’s of studies over the last century. In countries around the world, including Russia, Germany, Japan, Brazil, Ireland and right here in the United States

Simply put, Kombucha is an all natural, healthy beverage, but the Kombucha benefits you experience may vary.  A naturally carbonated, healthy tonic enjoyed by those who brew and consume it regularly, often throughout the day in small doses. People are usually very loyal to their daily Kombucha consumption, and consider the drink healthy for a number of reasons, such as:

*Contains living bacteria and yeast
*Substituted for sugary sodas or multiple trips to the coffee pot
*Acts as a snack or pre-meal hunger control
*Alkalizes like vinegar or lemon juice – balances internal pH
*Compounds in the drink may bond to and help excrete toxins from the liver – happy liver = happy mood
*May speed metabolism
*The acids present may improve digestion or alleviate constipation
*Improved flexibility & fluidity of movement
*Smooth energy from low levels of tea
*Relieve headaches & migraines
*Antioxidants & polyphenols from the tea are partially fermented and so more bioavailable
*Kills h.pylori on contact
*Certain acids present are considered candida-cides

However, Kombucha is NOT a panacea – it doesn’t cure ANYTHING! It may help the body bring itself back into balance naturally. That is how it is able to do so much – because it’s really just your body working with nutrition, like any other food.

I will walk you through the steps so you can see exactly how easy it is to make this delicious beverage for your self for pennies on the dollar.  I will show you how to brew, flavor, carbonate, and store your SCOBY so you can continue to have this tonic any time you want it.

This class is $20 and includes an 8oz glass of Kombucha to take home with you!!!
(Please pay at time of class. Thank you!)
