1) Detoxify

The antioxidants present in kombucha remove toxins and free radicals, cleansing the system of harmful pollutants absorbed from plastics, food additives, pesticides, and heavy metals.

This powerful little frisby-shaped colony is what gives kombucha its super powers. Adding probiotics and good bacteria to your diet can greatly improve digestion, promote beneficial gut flora, and assist in the management of chronic GI disorders.
