What is Kombucha Tea and what is it for?

Kombucha tea comes from the east. And, although it arrived in Spain a few years ago, despite its potential, it is still a huge unknown to many. Behind this name, which initially seems a bit complicated, is a fermented tea, which in addition to improving digestion, has important properties for detoxifying the body and reducing weight. However, it should be clear that in the case of weight loss, this evidence has not been scientifically proven.

These beneficial effects are achieved because Kombucha tea is rich in probiotics and enzymes, which are made by fermenting tea (green, red, etc.) with Kombucha fungus and yeast. In addition, for fermentation, sugar is used (which can be of various types, such as brown), honey or fruit.

The result of this whole fermentation process is a liquid made from tea, vinegar, and B vitamins, in addition, it contains high levels of acetic, lactic, and gluconic acids, which are added to enzymes and probiotics. It is important to know that there is some alcohol in it. And what does it taste like? It has a delicate flavor.

How to drink camouflage tea to lose weight?

Regardless of whether you bought it ready-made or prepared at home, it is recommended to drink two cups a day. There are people who drink up to three cups a day, but it is never good for you to have more than that amount because it contains alcohol (due to fermentation) and caffeine.

If you've never taken it before, it's best to start small because the amount of alcohol and probiotics in it can have some unwanted side effects. Try this one small cup a day. After that, you can increase your intake to two small cups daily. If all goes well, you will be able to drink a normal cup of tea and even drink three teas throughout the day: morning, afternoon, and evening.
