Drinking kombucha can help you and your family maintain a healthy lifestyle. Unlike trendy health fads and elimination diets that many of us have tried, drinking kombucha is a low maintenance, lifelong habit that can easily become a part of your daily routine. Everyday stressors and toxins from the environment can take their toll on our bodies and contribute to weight gain. Combined with decades of following a food pyramid that is both backwards and designed for big food corporations to make money has caused much of our population to face challenges when it comes to losing and keeping off weight. Kombucha is not a cure all beverage, but we have been drinking and brewing kombucha actively for years because of how good it makes us feel. Here are our top 3 reasons why kombucha helps support weight loss based on our experiences in our own health journeys.
Kombucha helps detoxify the gut & aid in digestion. Kombucha is full of enzymes and healthy digestive acids that help lower the Ph of the stomach and help digest food. To put it simply, this helps things move along easier after meals and also helps your body utilize the nutrients in your food. This is why new kombucha drinkers should start at about 4 oz at a time, followed with 4 oz of water. Too much too quickly could cause discomfort, but over time, you will find you crave kombucha and feel great consuming it throughout the day.
Kombucha is a great soda and alcohol replacement. A can of coke has 39 grams of sugar and 140 calories. An 8 oz. glass of white wine has roughly 9 grams of sugar and 190 calories. Comparatively, an 8 oz glass of kombucha has about 2-3 grams of sugar and is roughly 40 calories. Additionally, there are zero nutrients in coke and very few found in wine (not enough to make it worth it for daily consumption) while kombucha is jam packed with B, C, and D vitamins and amino acids such as L-theanine, that promote gut health. Finally, the fermented nature of kombucha will naturally help you feel de-stressed, happy and at ease. No more needing that glass of wine to unwind at the end of the day!
Adaptogens found in kombucha help combat sugar cravings. Whether you’re in the need of a morning energy boost, a midday pick-me-up, or an evening night cap, kombucha is loaded with adaptogens, natural components that help your body maintain balance. While a sugary soda or energy drink fix will have you feeling hyper energized followed by a crash, an adaptogen-rich beverage will help your body adapt (hence the name adaptogen) to what it needs. If you’re trying to cut back on desert but need a sweet fix, opt out of ice cream and instead try a kombucha smoothie bowl or sip on a glass of booch. You will likely find it was just what your body needed (without all the extra sugar, calories and other hidden, lousy ingredients. Ready to make the healthy switch and start drinking kombucha?
