Believe it or not, drinking kombucha can have an effect on the female cycle. Our bodies are exposed to harmful toxins and hormone disruptors every day, and as hard as we try to avoid them, these chemicals can still negatively impact our bodies. When our systems get thrown off balance by external stressors (air pollution, pesticides in our food, chemicals in skin care products, etc) our internal systems don’t function properly, especially the menstrual cycle. Women may experience menstrual, digestive or emotional side effects due to the disruption of our hormonal cycles and over all body chemistry.
Thankfully, drinking kombucha has shown to have many great benefits for women, and can help ease these symptoms by rebalancing the body. Here are 3 effects drinking kombucha can have on your cycle:
- Restores balance to hormones and digestive systems with a healthy dose of probiotics
- Detoxes harmful bacteria, yeast and toxins and helps promote optimal reproductive health
- Boosts your mood with a flood of happy and energizing B vitamins
Wellness in the body starts with a healthy gut and properly functioning internal systems. With the way kombucha effects us, it's no surprise kombucha can also help pregnant women and nursing mama's too. Our favorite (and definitely the easiest) way to keep our guts healthy is by loading up on probiotic rich food & drink...perhaps a glass of home brewed kombucha?
