Have you heard of the mystical drink called kombucha?

If you’ve followed Fitlife.tv long enough, you probably saw that a couple years back, there was a full on tutorial teaching you how to make it.

I stumbled upon this tutorial the other day, but before taking off to make my first batch, I wanted to do some deep mad scientist research to find out exactly what it is and why I should invest my time in making it.

You see, I am not a virgin to kombucha, but I am by no means a kombucha expert either. At least, I wasn’t before doing some major recon for this article.

In the past I have drank kombucha and I have been asked the question, “hey dude, what is that?”

This conversation usually ended with me muttering something about gut health and how it’s super healthy for me.

But now I know better! It’s so much more than that!

It’s time for you and I to get educated on what this stuff is and why it’s so fantastic!

Let’s first start with the origin story. This stuff has been around for thousands of years!

The first people to drink it were Samurai Warriors in China back in third century B.C.

I’m not a big beer drinker, so I can guarantee that the next party I go to, I am showing up with kombucha and if anyone gives me a hard time, I’ll just tell them I’m indulging in the beverage of choice for Samurai Warriors.

So what is kombucha anyway?

It is a black, green or white tea that is fermented with sugar and a bunch of bacteria and yeast.

It sounds wild, but through its fermentation process, this drink becomes what the Chinese referred to as “The Immortal Health Elixir.”

I know what you’re thinking. “I can stop reading now. A nickname that cool is enough for me. I’m sold.”

But before you close out this article, let’s run through some of the amazing health benefits you’ll get from drinking kombucha that you probably weren’t aware of.

1. Gut Health

Whether you have stomach issues or not, this drink is an amazing resource for making sure you maintain a healthy digestive system all year long. It’s even been shown to help heal stomach ulcers. If you want to learn more about maintaining a healthy gut, this is a must read.

2. Boosts Your Immune System

This super drink is abundant in antioxidants like vitamin C, E and beta-carotene. All those antioxidants make it a great beverage to drink when you’re traveling or dealing with a lot of stress.

3. Levels Up Your Energy

If you’re drinking black tea kombucha, you can expect better blood flow throughout your body, resulting in more energy without coffee!

4. Promotes Fat Loss

The tea component to kombucha can be a great way to balance your metabolism through its inhibitory effects on your appetite.

5. Detoxification

Kombucha contains a detox agent called glucuronic acid that helps your body convert toxins into compounds that your body can then efficiently get rid of. For more detox solutions check out these awesome juice recipes.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
