Brandy Creek Cottage specialises in producing actively fermenting kombucha in its second stage.
Kombucha second fermentation involves drawing off the first fermentation liquid and infusing it with a selection of fruits, flowers, herbs, spices and/or roots to provide distinctive and original flavours.
Brandy Creek Cottage Kombucha is available in its second fermentation so that customers can control the length of fermentation to suit their own tastes.
"What we consume and put into our bodies can have a huge affect on our overall health and well-being. This is especially true with beverages we take in, as the liquids can add up in calories and provide our bodies with unwanted carbohydrates and sugars."
Brandy Creek Cottage Kombucha is popular for its minimal sugar content, unique and delicious flavorings and its amazing immune boosting effects and nutritional value.
These benefits start with Kombucha's probiotic effects, which come from the bacteria and yeast that form during the fermentation process. The microorganisms in Kombucha that are responsible for its tangy flavor also help keep the natural population of bacteria in our digestive tract balanced and healthy. And that, in turn, helps to keep the rest of our body healthy!
Kombucha can help support gut health and maintain proper digestion. Brandy Creek Cottage only uses the highest quality green tea and its natural antioxidants help to reduce and eliminate free radicals in the digestive tract. Many studies have shown that antioxidants from beverages are better for your health than antioxidant supplements. (1)
Most importantly, kombucha supports healthy digestion with its potent level of probiotics, amino acids and enzymes. In addition to probiotic benefits, kombucha's antioxidants may protect pancreatic cells, help our bodies manage insulin and reduce blood fat levels. Kombucha may also reduce blood glucose levels, so it is important to monitor yourself until you know how drinking kombucha affects you personally.*
Brandy Creek Cottage Kombucha is loaded with many types of different vitamins and minerals making it a true nutritional powerhouse. It is loaded with folate, thiamine, vitamin B12 and B6 and niacin - a vitamin which every part of our body needs to function properly.
Drinking a glass of Brandy Creek Cottage Kombucha consistently can help maintain the overall health of our liver, as well as other important organs. This helps to improve liver function, such as filtering out harmful compounds and toxins from the body and promoting detoxification.
There is no established "dose" of kombucha that will ensure you get an effective amount of benefits with your drink, and, as with any beverage, moderation is the key.
