Making Kombucha!

imagekombucha prt2

We’ve been addicted to kombucha from day one. Not only is it loaded with probiotics it is so much fun to make — It has a nice tart green apple taste to it,  with an underlying sweetness that keeps it all together. And fizzy!  Can you believe that something this delicious could actually be made from  some tea? What’s exciting is you can make it at home with only a few ingredients.

Kombucha starts out as a sugary tea, which you will then ferment. You will need a    “SCOBY” , that you can purchase or start from scratch. The Scoby (mushroom ) isknown as   “symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast.”

The scoby bacteria and yeast will  eat most of the sugar in the tea, transforming the tea into a refreshingly fizzy, slightly sour fermented (but mostly non-alcoholic) beverage that is relatively low in calories and sugar. That is loaded with so many heath benefits.

Here is how I make it  Part One    Part two enjoy!!!

Here are a few and I mean only a few of the health benefits.  Kombucha is wonderful at supporting the body in so many ways ways. It isn’t a magic pill, but it helps the body function well by supporting:

  • liver detoxification
  • improved pancreas function
  • increased energy
  • better digestion
  • improved mood (helps with anxiety/depression)

Making Rejuvelac!!

A great probiotic for you vegan cheeze here’s the link enjoy!

A healthy digestive system is essential to the body’s overall well-being, so improving your digestion is one of the most important steps you can take to improving your health — gut health has even been linked to Alzheimer’s, autism, ADHD and other behavioral disorders.

People in the health community have been talking a lot about probiotics, which provide healthy bacteria for our guts. Well, rejuvelac is a probiotic, so, to put it simply, it aids in digestion.

If you have stomach or colon problems (including Candida,) give rejuvelac a try and see if it helps. And if you eat a lot of cooked food, which destroys enzymes needed for digestion, consuming rejuvelac will help.

But, this fermented drink isn’t only good for your gut. According to research by chemist Harvey Lisle, it is rich in the following good-for-you things: 

  • Proteins (by predigesting protein via sprouting and fermenting, you get amino acids in an easily assimilated form)
  • Carbohydrates
  • Phosphates (involved in processes necessary for health)
  • Lactobacillus (friendly bacteria; also good for cleansing your intestinal tract)
  • Aspergillis oryza (breaks down glucose, starch and glycogens)
  • B complex vitamins (including B12)
  • Vitamin C (good for skin and overall health)
  • Vitamin E (an antioxidant)
