5 Ways to Relax with Kombucha
1. better a kombuchaholic than a coffeeholic?
Swap your morning coffee for kombucha. It can help you wake up without taking in unnecessary caffeine. The L-theanine in the tea can counteract the harmful effects of caffeine and you'll still have the extra energy you need in the morning.
2. alcohol to come down - but please in a healthy way
Kombucha has a much lower alcohol content than beer and wine, for example. However, due to the natural fermentation process, kombucha has a super low alcohol content that can give you a nice relaxed feeling without being harmful to your body.
3 Kombucha as an adaptogen - Adaptowas?
Adaptogens are certain plant compounds that can help minimize stress. An adaptogen can have a regulating effect on the body and help it cope better with various stimuli. If you are often flattened and tired, it can have a stimulating effect on you. If you are stressed and excited, it can have a very calming effect.
4. healthy digestion equals less stress
Stress and the gut are not a good team. For many of us, stress immediately hits our stomachs and uncomfortable pain ensues. Protecting your gut and drinking kombucha with beneficial bacteria can prevent unnecessary irritation.
5. vitamin B and C against depressions and bad moods
