This ancient fermented tea boasts a list of health benefits used by numerous cultures for more than 2000 years. It was only introduced to the USA in the early 1990’s, and experts have since discovered that one of the key stones to good health is a healthy gastrointestinal tract. Organic kombucha tea cultivates probiotics, which is live bacteria and yeasts that encourage good flora in the digestive system. For this reason, kombucha is an excellent go to element to add to for a vibrant and energized lifestyle.
Here are some of the potential benefits of introducing organic kombucha tea to your diet.
Potentially Reduces the Risk of Cancer
A study done in 2008 using test tubes showed that kombucha helped prevent the growth of cancer cells, but human trials have not yet been carried out on this specific experiment. The fact that kombucha contributes to a strong immune system could help the body to fight off disease such as cancer more effectively.
Kombucha only became well known in Europe during the first half of the 20th century when the Russians hypothesized that people who were drinking organic kombucha tea were potentially immune to cancer. This motivated the research of the possibility of kombucha as a cure for cancer. The conclusion of this research confirmed that kombucha played a definite part in the decrease of cancer.
German scientists got wind of this and decided to elaborate on it in their own way. It was discovered that organic kombucha tea contains Glucaric acid which seemingly aids in the prevention of cancer.
Organic kombucha tea has a positive effect on the liver as the main detoxification organ in the body. The enzymes produced in the fermentation process of this health drink lightens the workload on the pancreas and liver.
Kombucha contains antioxidants which combats free radicals. Free radicals are the cause of cardiovascular and inflammatory disease. They are also responsible for the growth of cancer cells. Ridding your body of this by-product of oxygen metabolism decreases the risk of overall illness and promotes a well-balanced, healthy, happy body.
Combats Heart Disease
Cholesterol has become an epidemic in the day and age we live in. Our food is full of chemicals and elements that our bodies are not designed to process.
“Natural” food such as fruit and vegetables are being genetically engineered with quantity ruling over quality. It looks like a tomato, it may taste like a tomato, but is it really a tomato? The truth is our food has become nutrient deficient and is full of toxins in the form of pesticides and preservatives. These toxins cause all sorts of health complications from diabetes to heart disease, obesity, cancer; the list goes on. Basically, all of the most common causes of death that we experience in our immediate lives. An organic diet would definitely be a good way to go in avoiding the side effects of this so called food.
Drinking organic kombucha tea has wonderful benefits in counteracting this dilemma through its promotion of intestinal well being and detoxification.
So, we all know that our immune system is our bodies “army” against undesirables, right? Daily we are exposed to so many things that our bodies need to ward off in order to survive. Even the air we breathe contains toxic elements that need to be filtered. If you look at someone with a severe immune disease such as HIV, they don’t actually pass away from the virus. The lack of ability to fight off disease is the actual cause of death. Often something like pneumonia, tuberculosis or septicaemia develop because of the HIV virus killing the T-helping cells. In other words, the “soldiers” in the blood that fight off harmful compounds.
Even if the immune system is not compromised to this degree, it is now clear how important it is to maintain a rigorous immune system. It only takes 1 microscopic bacteria or virus to enter a weak system and cause irreparable damage.
The antioxidants in organic kombucha tea is very well known to support a healthy immune system.
As mentioned above, the quality of the food we consume these days leaves a lot to be desired. One of the side effects of this is weight gain, as our bodies store whatever bit of nutrients they can find as fat. Obesity is directly linked to heart disease, type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.
We have discussed the benefits of kombucha as a combatting tool against heart disease. Type 2 diabetes causes high blood sugar levels and insulin resistance. Drinking fermented organic kombucha tea has been proven to slow the digestion of carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are converted to sugar in the body and hence cause a spike in blood sugar levels. The delay of this allows the body to metabolize the carbohydrates slower and more efficiently, preventing the spike in blood sugar levels. The result of this is the glorious achievement of weight loss that most of society is so focused on for health and self esteem reasons.
