Kombucha Tea and More
August 08, 2012


Last week I wrote about chia seeds. That article was well received and I got some interesting comments in return. My favorite was this blog post,

Maryanne found that chia seeds helped her to lose weight. Very interesting! I had suspected that chia seeds and weight loss were connected, but she confirmed it; just another one of the great benefits of these tiny seeds. With the interest in chia seeds being so great, I thought I should also give you a link where you can purchase them. I get my chia seeds here from iHerb.

Maryanne's blog mentions that she likes her chia seeds with kombucha. If you don't know what kombucha is, kombucha is a fermented tea. Kombucha lovers have reported many benefits of drinking this tea, even without the chia seeds.

Here are some of the reported benefits of drinking kombucha tea:

1. Increased energy.

2. Helps with arthritis.

3. Gives a sense of well being.

4. Helps with asthma.

5. Thickens hair.

6. Better eyesight.

7. A good digestive aid.

8. Improves skin clarity.

9. Helps alleviate menopausal symptoms.

10. A better morning stimulant than coffee.

And many more! To see a list of benefits of kombucha tea, follow this link.

If you are intrigued by kombucha, you can easily make it for yourself at home. I have written a page about how to make your own kombucha tea. To learn how to make kombucha tea at home and/or to share your kombucha story, click here.
