It is widely recognized that kombucha is an excellent source of probiotics. It is a pleasant tea brewed with yeast and bacteria. And also goes under the name of ”immortal health elixir” and has gained its popularity in the present day. As a matter of fact, the product is supposed to succeed in the market at rate of 25% annually until 2020. Moreover, despite its powerful flavor it is enriched with a myriad health benefits. Lets take a look at the ways kombucha is great for the health of your stomach.
1. Kombucha Contains ”Good” Bacteria
Natural Kombucha is enriched with live probiotic strains, such as Lactobacillus, which is genus of ”good” bacteria that promote good digestion, ease the digestive tract and aid bowel movements. If your stomach needs taming, these bacteria (there are many varieties of Lactobacillus) may be of help.
2. Kombucha is Rich With Antioxidants
Our bodies need and use oxygen to perform the required functions and free radicals (metabolitic byproducts) are hard to avoid. Free radicals result in oxidative stress, which may harm cells. Antioxidants defend our bodies, while kombucha has proved a capability to protect the body from damage caused by free radicals.
3. Kombuch Aids the Immune System
The immune system is an essential constituent of the body’s capability to cure, protect and preserve itself. The lack of healthy nutrition in combination with toxins, may harm the immune system. There are myriad ways to promote the function of the immune system and Kombucha, with its ”good” probiotics and rich nutrients is one of them.
4. Kombucha Can Aid the Healing Process of Ulcers
Even though digestion is a complicated process, your body is able and needs to perform it effectively and without obstructions. Ideally, no person will ever feel any kind of digestive issues. Sadly, peptic ulcers, which also go under the name of gastric ulcers, are frequent issues felt by many people. They are sores which appear on the lining of the digestive tract, which are painful and troublesome. Research seems to suggest that Kombucha can help in curing ulcers.
5. Healthy Support Against Cancer
Cancer appears to be the second primary cause of death in the USA, as nearly 600,000 Americans pass away from cancer annually. Even though there are more than 100 types of cancer, we can outline them as a group of illnesses, which entail abnormal growth of the cells which could possibly affect and spread to other parts of the organism. We have to emphasize that Kombucha will not treat or prevent a cancer. However, some research has lead to conclusion that Kombucha can help the organism defend itself against cancer. It is hopeful information and further research in the field will provide more findings.
6. Kombucha Regulates Normal Body Weight
Regulating a balanced body weight is important in maintaining a good health and well-being. Sadly, many people have problems maintaining a healthy weight. As a matter of fact almost 70% of Americans are either overweight or obese. Obesity results in a number of health issues including diabetes and heart disease. Kombucha may not be a weight loss drink, but according to some research among other benefits, it regulates the body weight.
