Kombucha BenefitsAs you may have guessed, I’m a huge proponent of trying alternative types of medicine and healing. Many people haven’t heard of shilajit, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t a safe, healthy dietary supplement that has long-lasting health benefits. Today, I’m going to look at another unusual substance that many people consider to be extremely beneficial: Kombucha.

Kombucha is a fermented tea that has been used for over 2,000 years for many different reasons.

What is Kombucha?

Simply put, kombucha is fermented tea. Now, I know what you’re probably thinking – tea isn’t usually fermented. Kombucha is unique, in that it is fermented by a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast (a.k.a. “SCOBY”). And, kombucha isn’t a new phenomenon – it has been in use for over 2,000 years. The ancient Chinese call it the “Immortal Health Elixir.” Now, that’s definitely something I’m interesting in learning more about.

What are the Benefits of Kombucha?

According to kombucha drinkers and thousands of years of tradition, kombucha has many benefits. The most mentioned, however, are:

  • Arthritis Prevention
  • Detoxification
  • Immune System Booster
  • Digestion and Gut Health

Shilajit and Kombucha: Both are Gifts of Nature

As you can see, many of the benefits of kombucha model the benefits of shilajit. I’m a huge proponent of using all-natural substances that are created by Mother Nature. Both kombucha and shilajit come from the earth, and have been used for thousands of years, with great success. Many people write off shilajit and kombucha, due to the lack of scientific studies and research regarding their benefits. But, with thousands of years of successful use, it is difficult to ignore the benefits. If you’d like to start drinking kombucha, you can pick up a bottle at a local health food store. Or, you can make your own kombucha by purchasing a SCOBY (it’s actually very simple). To begin taking shilajit, all you have to do is buy the shilajit resin (click here to learn more about shilajit resins) and start taking it every day.  I believe you’ll quickly see the benefits to your life!
