Kombucha is known as a Chinese drink and originating in the Far East around 2,000 years ago, Kombucha is a beverage with tremendous health benefits extending to your heart, your brain and (especially) your gut. Kombucha is a fermented drink made from sweetened tea and a specific culture known as a scoby. Scoby stands for ‘symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeasts’. The bacteria and yeasts convert the sugar into ethanol and acetic acid. The acetic acid is what gives kombucha its distinctive sour taste.
Magwanas Kombucha is one of the longest standing producers in South Africa. There are three blends available from your local Health Renewal Store.
Magwana’s Kombucha Antioxidant blend is fermented from Chinese green tea which is rich in free radical eliminating anti-oxidants. This far Eastern health tea is a fermented drink rich in live enzymes, useful colonic bacteria, detoxifying acids, b-vitamins and natural fizz.
The Herbal flavour blend is made with bitter herb tincture (Swedish bitters) that promotes and supports detoxification, and other herbs that are also known to regulate appetite and empower digestive capacity whilst balancing your intestinal PH.
The Premium Magwana’s Kombucha blend is made with fructose instead of sucrose and is fermented for twice the regular brewing time, creating a stronger ferment and ensuring a more compatible kombucha drink for those with sugar intolerance.
