I’m someone that has always thought about ‘health’ but didn’t really start applying things, educating myself and making changes until about two years ago. One of the first things I learned about? The importance of gut health.
Disclaimer: I’m not a doctor, or any sort of medical professional. My statements are based on my own research and experiences.
Your gut basically controls everything in your body including your mood, stress levels, sleep, infection etc. Isn’t that crazy?! Your microbiome is so incredibly important that some even call it your second brain. Anyway – this led me to the discovery of probiotics. These are good bacteria that keep your gut healthy, that’s the short answer. Probiotics can be found naturally in tons of foods and drinks. Usually in fermented things like kimchi, sourdough, sauerkraut, kefir and yep, you guessed it – kombucha! I’m sure you’ve heard about it or seen it on the ‘gram but do you know what it really is?!
