What is Kombucha

by Gail Bowman

Kombucha is a traditional beverage originating in the Far East thousands of years ago. Kombucha is the name used for sweetened tea that has been fermented using a macroscopic solid mass of microorganisms called a “kombucha colony”. The culture contains a symbiosis of acetic acid bacteria and yeast; it is often called a mushroom (which it isn’t), a Mother of vinegar or by the acronym SCOBY for “Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast”. The end result is a beverage rich in B vitamins, enzymes, probiotics, and carboxylic acids. Its use and benefits have become very popular recently in the natural health community. Some people buy ready to drink Kombucha (which is very expensive) and others make it at home under less than sterile conditions, with risk of contamination.

Garden of Life has just astounded the market with a capsulated Kombucha called, VITΔMIN CODE RAW Kombucha. This is the only RAW Kombucha in a capsule, designed to provide the dynamic benefits that a Kombucha beverage has to offer, such as B vitamins, enzymes and probiotics, in a more convenient, reliable and affordable form.

Anyone seeking increased energy and digestive health support can benefit from taking Kombucha. Additionally, you will enjoy this product in a pill form if you:
do not like the taste of the beverage; do not find the SCOBY pleasant to swallow; want to avoid the sugar content in the kombucha drink; or can’t afford to buy it or do not have time to make it.

The The VITΔMIN CODE RAW Kombucha formula delivers Raw Food-Created B vitamins (including PABA), the RAW Kombucha Probiotic & Tea Blend and the RAW Kombucha Enzyme Blend.

Why would I care about B Vitamins, you ask? B vitamins are a family of water-soluble vitamins that play an important role in cell metabolism. They are not stored well in the body so they need to be replenished daily. B vitamins are the catalytic spark plugs of our body; they are commonly found together in foods and have similar coenzyme function, often needing each other to perform best. Cellular energy production is the most important function of the B vitamins; they provide mental and physical energy, support healthy blood and a healthy heart, the immune system and healthy a response to stress. RAW Kombucha includes excellent levels of RAW Food-Created vitamin B-Complex for energy and healthy metabolism.

PABA or para-amino benzoic acid is considered to be in the B-complex vitamin family. In humans, PABA is normally made from folic acid by bacteria in the colon since PABA is a component of that vitamin. Intestinal bacteria can also synthesize folate from PABA. PABA assists with breaking down of protein, the formation of red blood cells and the maintenance of intestinal flora. RAW Kombucha includes 14.4mg of RAW Food-Created PABA for antioxidant protection and energy.

The benefits from RAW Kombucha are: RAW Energy, Digestive Health, Immune Support, Healthy Metabolism, Antioxidant protection and Heart Health.

VITΔMIN CODE RAW Kombucha is the only RAW Kombucha in a capsule; most kombucha products are available as a beverage. As a supplement, RAW Kombucha provides significant and standardized levels of B vitamins, probiotics and enzymes; the kombucha fermented beverage would have difficulty standardizing these ingredients, and their label declares low levels. Additionally, many of these beverages are combined with fruit juices which provide significant sugar content, RAW Kombucha is sugar free. The main difference is that RAW Kombucha offers great value, including higher guaranteed amounts of nutrients for just $1.00 per day, compared to Kombucha drinks that can cost almost $4.00.

Digestive Enzymes

Insufficient enzyme activity in your system also causes other negative effects on your body. Because enzymes play essential roles in all of the systems of your body (in addition to the digestive system), you need enzymes to keep all of your organs, muscles, and tissues functioning. Your body, however, has only a limited number of enzymes to do all of these jobs.

Why Gluten Free

What is celiac disease (Gluten Intolerance), anyway? People with celiac disease have a two-fold problem: (1) their small intestine has trouble absorbing nutrients, and (2) their immune system reacts abnormally to gluten, a protein in wheat, rye, barley, and any products with wheat.

What are Probiotics

The layers of probiotics in your intestines actually work with your immune system by preventing bad bacteria—such as salmonella, fungi, Candida, and other nasty disease-causing organisms—from taking hold in your intestines and making you sick. In fact, probiotics are your first line of defense against disease.

Green Smoothies

We started making our afternoon “green drink” a couple of months ago when a customer of mine explained that she and her husband were in their 60s and credited their extreme good health to their “green drinks” for breakfast every morning! She told me that she just throws in whatever is in the fridge and turns on the blender! Yum!

The Right Fats

It’s time to reconcile with fat. Because if you don’t, your body will find a way to hold onto it. It always does. If you limit fat significantly, your body will slow its own metabolism. It will even do such deplorable things as increasing the amount of enzymes that cause fat storage.

Antibiotics vs Your Body’s Terrain

by Jordan Rubin One hundred and fifty years ago, two scientists engaged in what seemed at the time to be a minor squabble. They each had a theory they believed in, and, more importantly, neither man was willing to believe or even consider the other’s position. One of those men was Louis Pasteur, whose name […]
