Kombucha, an ancient Chinese drink dubbed the “Immortal Health Elixir,” has been around for more than 2,000 years.

While science cannot fully support its plethora of benefits, the drink’s persistence 2,000 years later suggests that it’s one powerful elixir. With its long-standing reputation for healing the body and fighting off cancer, arthritis, and other degenerative diseases, Kombucha has the potential to greatly benefit your health and fitness goals at the Greenville health club and beyond!

Kombucha Benefits:

  1. Detox + Support Your System.
    Kombucha promotes healthy livers. Being rich in many of the enzymes and bacterial acids your body produces and/or uses to cleanse your system, Kombucha lessens your pancreatic load and eases stress on your liver. What’s more, due to its high Glucaric acid levels, Kombucha may reduce cancer. Lastly, being chock-full of antioxidants, Kombucha has the power to boost the functioning of your immune system and elevate your energy levels. So, if you’re low on energy before your Greenville gym workout, try Kombucha as an energy-boosting coffee alternative.
  2. Keep Your Joints Healthy + Happy.
    Glucosamines, found in Kombucha, serve to prevent and treat all types of arthritis. By increasing the production of synovial hyaluronic acid, they work to preserve cartilage structure and ward off arthritic pain (similar to the way NSAIDs do). Also, hyaluronic acid enables connective tissue to bind moisture thousands of times its weight and supports tissue structure, moisture, lubrication and flexibility and reduces free radical damage, while associated collagen slows and reduces wrinkles. Tough day at the Greenville sports club? Achy joints? Skip happy hour. Kombucha is the ultimate Greenville athletic club post-workout cocktail!
  3. Boost Your Digestive Fire.
    As a naturally fermented beverage complete with a living colony of bacteria and yeast, Kombucha is classified as a probiotic. Probiotics have been celebrated for their many health and healing benefits including better digestion, mental clarity, and mood stability. Kombucha is also good for softening or eliminating the symptoms of fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, etc. and fighting candida (harmful yeast) overgrowth.
