Kombucha : What Is It and What Are Its Health Benefits?

  • 2 min read

Kombucha is a fermented tea that has been enjoyed for centuries, dating back to ancient China. It is made by adding a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (also known as a SCOBY) to sweetened tea. The SCOBY consumes the sugar and tea, and in turn, produces a fermented beverage that is rich in probiotics and beneficial acids.

The story behind Biora’s Kombucha-based products began with Chantal Houle, a forward-thinking mother who sought nutritious options for her family. Inspired by her fondness for Kombucha, she pondered, "Why not incorporate gut-healthy fermented options to the grocery list? Like - vinegars and salad dressings?” That was the lightbulb moment that led to the birth of Biora.

We have launched the first Kombucha-based functional food family. All our products are made with great-tasting, 100% plant-based organic ingredients, turbocharged by our proprietary 120-day fermentation process, producing an abundance of gut-boosting prebiotics, active cultures and postbiotics. 

Kombucha has gained popularity in recent years due to its potential health benefits. Many people consume it for its probiotic content, which can support a healthy gut microbiome. It is also thought to have antioxidant properties and may help with digestion and immune function.


Feel better than ever

Here are our top 6 reasons why you should consider incorporating kombucha products into your daily routine:

1️⃣ Detoxification Support: Kombucha contains antioxidants that can help eliminate toxins from your body, aiding in natural detoxification processes. 

2️⃣ Weight Management Boost: Kombucha's natural probiotics may aid in digestion and nutrient absorption for effective weight management.

3️⃣ Enhanced Digestion: The enzymes found in kombucha can assist in breaking down food, making it easier for your body to absorb nutrients and maintain optimal digestion.

4️⃣ Increased Energy Levels: Kombucha contains a small amount of caffeine and B vitamins, offering a natural energy boost.

5️⃣ Immune System Support: Thanks to its probiotic content, kombucha can help strengthen your immune system. 

6️⃣ Stress Relief: Kombucha's adaptogenic properties can help normalize and balance your body, reducing oxidative stress and boosting immunity, energy, and stamina, ultimately contributing to stress management.
