Over the last several years, more and more research is showing how important our digestive health is to our overall immune system. It seems that our modern way of living and eating has eliminated or decreased how much good bacteria we now have in our bodies.

Many health care professionals and health industry leaders are encouraging us to take a probiotic supplant and add more fermented food to our diets to restore balance in our good vs bad bacteria composition.

Since personally adding a probiotic supplement and fermented food to my diet I can attest to better digestion and less incidents involving colds and viruses. One of my favorite ways to accomplish this has been drinking kombucha!

I really enjoy the Synergy brand and treat myself to one occasionally because they can be a little pricy at $3-$4 per bottle.

A couple of years ago a friend began making her own and shared her recipe  as well as a starter scoby to get me started. It takes about a week to make and definitely feels like a science experiment but is so worth it! I can’ t wait until my brew is ready!

On my next post I’ll share the recipe I used as well as pictures of the finished product.

Here is the scoby I am using purchased from Amazon:
