So what the heck is Kombucha? No.1 Kombucha Review

No.1 Kombucha Review
So I have reimagined my fitness regime at the start of the month so I am not just thinking about going to the gym or exercising, I am also thinking about my diet. Now I know I said diet BUT I am not going on the typical fad diets that are out there but rather a more healthier way of eating to help control my PCOS. I am now thinking about portion sizes, how much sugar is in my diet and also snacking. I have made many changes and I know it may sound nuts but I am starting to feel better the way I am eating and exercising now, it is all progress. 

I was kindly sent No.1 Kombucha to try. Now at first, I wasn't sure what Kombucha was but after research on their website, I was pleasantly surprised about the benefits including the fact it's naturally rich in live cultures. The brand was founded by Jonny Wilkinson and comes in 3 delicious flavours; 'Ginger & Tumeric', 'Raspberry, Pomegranate & Hibiscus' and also 'Passion fruit and Goji'.These are available in Sainsbury's.

So what is Kombucha?
Now I know many of you may be wondering what Kombucha is because to be honest before I was sent it I didn't know either. Kombucha in basic terms is fermented tea. Its ( 91% ) filtered water, cane sugar, green tea and live kombucha cultures. It also has white grape juice, Ginger juice ( 3 % ) and Tumeric ( 0.1% ). It does have caffeine as it does contain green tea but it doesn't contain any more caffeine than your usual cup of green tea.

Now, this drink is made through a fermentation process so it does have a very small trace of alcohol in it. The drink is also live and unpasteurised so its best to keep it in the fridge and once opened to drink within 2 days of opening.

Not only do they taste delicious but they are less than 50 calories in each bottle and they are suitable for gluten-free, dairy-free and vegans
Eco-friendly: Bottle made from recycled amber glass which not only can be recycled again but also helps protect living cultures in Kombucha. The cap can be recycled too.
