    You can start out with the fruity flavors (aka kombucha kids meal) before you move onto advanced levels such as “original” “multi-green” and “lemon cayenne cleanse”

    Why only drink it once or twice a week? I’ve had it sparingly, but that’s just because I didn’t feel like it was anything special. Would there by any reason to not drink it daily?

    i mean it’s expensive unless you brew it at home. Not any more expensive than a 5 dollar coffee everyday but just not really worth it to me. If it was like 1-2 dollars cheaper I probably would. Maybe I’m being stingy.

    I don't know what probiotics are but I am impressed they're able to get billions of them in their product. That's a lot of anything

    Probiotics is the magic that makes kombucha. They are essentially from what I understand microorganisms that somehow restore or improve gut flora that leads to increased gut health.

    You have a nervous system in your gut that is second only to your brain and can really control the way you feel (just picture an extreme case like nausea of any sort emanating from your midsection - doesn’t make your existence feel very good). Healthy gut flora makes you healthier in several ways: lowers inflammation in your gut, helps balance glucose levels in your blood, helps better breakdown and absorb useful nutrients, changes the way you store fat (helping fight obesity), improves the way you react to hormones that cause hunger, and helps better control your mood (the gut can actually produce neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine). A lot of people who are obese have terrible gut health caused by eating and/or drinking things that creates a bad environment for your flora to flourish. Essentially it’s making you fatter and harder to be skinny. From what I gather a good way to start a diet is to take probiotics and get your gut flora right.

    Kombucha will help but there are expensive (I think like a hundred bucks for two weeks supply or a month idk) probiotics out there you can buy that are delivered in dry ice because it helps keep more of the flora alive until ingested (you refrigerate from there). There are cheaper ones at pharmacies and stuff but they are capsules at room temp that aren’t as effective. Anyway with some good kombucha you can legit feel your like your mood is improving and your gut feels almost relieved.

    My friend does it but the buch is really sour although very potent. How do you improve the flavor?

    Um I like GT and Kevita plus one other one that escapes me. It does seem like not all brands are equal some seem to be more effective at giving that nice mood change feeling.

    A few months back I went down a rabbit hole researching kombucha because I was bored. Turns out that most of the claims about it are bullshit. I would drink it, but I have seasonal allergies andprduce enough post-nasal drip slime on my own so Iit saves me money.

    Anyone had wild tonic? It’s alcoholic kombucha. They had a booth set up at a bbq and bourbon festival a while back and that shit is delicious. Hard to find and kind of expensive though.

    Kombucha is just tea that is fermented by a culture of bacteria and yeast. Your base flavor can be tweaked by your individual bacteria/yeast strain and how long you let it ferment. From there, you can pick your adjuncts and how much you add in order to dial in the flavor you’re looking for.

    I’ve got a cherry kombucha on tap right now that isn’t as sour as I wanted it to be because I overestimated the souring contribution of the cherry juice and didn’t let it ferment long enough.
