Thirsty Thursday- Kombucha Tea!

Thursday, January 3, 2013


 Have you heard of Kombucha, the beverage the ancient Chinese called the “Immortal Health Elixir?” It’s been around for more than 2,000 years and has a rich anecdotal history of preventing and fighting cancer, arthritis, and other degenerative diseases. First, there’s all the benefits of detoxification, such as healthy livers and cancer prevention. One of kombucha’s greatest health benefits is its ability to detox the body. It makes the body alkaline.

                      Why is having an alkaline body important? 

The Alkalinity in your body is measured the same way another PH is measured, 0 to 14 with 7 being the neutral point. When the body's Blood sugar falls above 7, 7.5 being ideal, the body is balanced. Outside of this range the body is no longer optimal and the metabolism is out of balance.

The little Things

  • If you have a slight pH fluctuation and your body becomes more acidic than it should be, your body immediately begins to exhibit symptoms of an imbalance. These symptoms may be considered little, like a runny nose, fatigue, a skin breakout and can even aid in irritable bowl symptoms.
Fewer Colds

  • An acidic environment promotes the growth of bad bacteria, yeast and fungi. The imbalance of your body's good bacteria makes you more prone to infections.
Cancer prevention

  • A major benefit of having an alkaline body state is that you might reduce your risk for developing cancer. When your body is too acidic, oxygen levels are lowered and cellular metabolism stops. This can lead to the growth of cancer cells. Maintaing an alkaline state helps encourage healthy cell turnover, which the key in the prevention of cancer.
Healthy Weight

  • Fruits and vegetables make your body more alkaline while processed foods, sugar, refined carbohydrates and alcohol make you more acidic. By eating alkalizing foods, you are more likely to maintain a healthy weight. The frequent consumption of acid-producing foods is more likely to contribute to a weight problem.
