Kombucha is the fermented tea that is sweeping the nation! This bubbly, effervescent drink is popular because it is chock-full of enzymes, acids, and probiotics…and, quite simply, because it tastes so good! Hannah Crum, fondly known as the “Kombucha Mamma” enlightens all of us with her understanding of the drink. In today’s discussion, she touts its many health benefits including improving digestion, liver detoxification, and more.
For over ten years, Hannah has been brewing it herself, and through her kombuchakamp.com site she has mentored over 100,000 home brewers. Not sure what to make of it all, or how to make it yourself? Check out her “Big Book of Kombucha,” released just this week. It contains over 400 recipes, in addition to a history and research section, highlighting 150 years of scientific study of this fizzy, vinegar-y drink! If you haven’t been swept up by this craze just yet, you certainly will be by the time you’re done listening to today’s episode!
