Often touted as “hipster” or a “skinny girl” drink, kombucha often gets a bad rap. However, this “Tea of Immunity” is anything but hippie, nor is it “overhyped” like Buzzfeed continuously claims. Packed with living probiotics, electrolytes, acetic acids, and active enzymes, kombucha is the ultimate sparkling, fruity multivitamin that will add balance, immunity, and a little bit of tang to your life.
So what is kombucha? Kombucha is a fermented tea hailing from Eastern traditions. According to GT’s Living Foods, in order to craft kombucha, a base of sweetened tea is cultured with a SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast). Over time, the SCOBY transforms the tea into a tangy, naturally effervescent drink with billions–yes, that’s right, billions–of living probiotics. This unique formula supports gut health, aids digestion, improves vitality, provides enhanced immune support, and promotes overall wellbeing.
As someone who has been drinking kombucha daily for the last four years, I can be reasonably called a kombucha freak. However, I’m picky about my kombucha; I only drink GT’s Kombucha. Made famous by Cody Ko and Noel Miller’s “That’s Cringe” Youtube series, GT Dave, the “Kombucha King” and founder of GT’s Living Foods, has put kombucha on the map. After watching his mother drink kombucha every day during her battle with cancer–which she ultimately beat–he became convinced of the probiotic drink’s seemingly magical powers. Now, with a net worth of close to $1 billion, it’s safe to say that GT’s passion for kombucha has been well-received.
Now, as people incessantly seek out new ways to prevent and combat COVID-19, they should look no further than their local grocery store. With billions of active cultures and a refreshingly tangy taste, GT’s Kombucha is the perfect way to support your immune system and protect your body against the coronavirus.
With more than 10 flavors to choose from, including a limited edition, 25th anniversary brew, GT’s Kombucha is the perfect brand to kickstart you on what will undoubtedly become your new self-care obsession.
Here are my favorite brews that I always keep stocked:
GT’s Raw Kombucha, Gingerade; $2.56 at Central Market
GT’s Synergy Organic Kombucha, Trilogy; $2.56 at Central Market
GT’s Synergy Organic Kombucha, Guava Goddess; $2.56 at Central Market
Arguably the longest-standing element of my self care routine, I’m convinced that GT’s Kombucha keeps me from getting sick as often, and helps mitigate symptoms when I do. But don’t just take my word for it–try it for yourself to see what the Kombucha King’s miracle product can do for you.
