Leahi Health and Kombucha

KombuchaWhile living in Hollywood, CA, I had my first taste of Kombucha tea. Bam!!! I knew that I had to learn how to make this great elixir. Finding the SCOBY to do this, was the real challenge. I asked my vegetarian friends, however, no one had any suggestions on where it could be found.

Back home in Oahu, I awoke one night and I was drawn to Craig’s List Free section, I couldn’t believe my eyes, there is was free SCOBY on Maui. This culture is the original and the secret ingredients in Leahi Health’s Kombucha.

Kombucha is a fermented tea drink that has been around for more than 2.000 years. It is believed to have originated in North East China. The Kombucha culture is a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY, a.k.a.”mother” because of its ability to reproduce).

Kombucha is high in acid and contains sugar, vinegar, B vitamins, antioxidants, and other chemical compounds. One 16-ounce glasscontains about 60 calories. A main ingredient found in all fermented foods and beverages are probiotics, which are beneficial bacteria necessary for adequate digestion and absorption of nutrients.

Leahi Health Kombucha drinkers claim that it aids digestion, sleep, weigh loss, detoxification, and stimulates the immune system.

As a Health Advocate, I believe that Kombucha promotes health by providing your body with what it needs to heal itself.
