Product Spotlight: Ciara´s Komboost Kombucha

Ciara´s offers a line of Kombucha drinks in a variety of flavors, available in 16 fl oz bottles.

From there website: Since the start of Ciara's, we have pledged  to remain Artesanal and only provide the same quality pure and raw Kombucha that Ciara drinks for the health of her liver.

Because of this commitment and the strict standards we place on ourselves, there was never a need to adjust, revamp or alter our production practices. We at Ciara's stand by our promise to NEVER let the prospect of higher profit EVER cause the quality, purity, honesty and health of our Kombucha to be compromised in any way!!  That being said...we have been flooded with requests for Ciara's in flavors. With much agony and research we have developed a way to effectively flavor our product that provides nourishment to its living properties which is evidenced by the ability to grow a culture in ALL of our bottles. Each flavor provides our pure, raw and living Kombucha with a little boost of flavor offering an energetic and healthy drink far superior to any mass manufactured "kombucha" product currently on the market. As always, we hold ourselves to the same standards that you should only expect from Ciara's!!!

What is Kombucha?Kombucha is a raw, fermented, probiotic, and naturally carbonated tea.

It is most likely an ancient Chinese elixir, with some records extending back to the Qin Dynasty in 220 BCE. At some point, kombucha traveled to Russia, where definite record keeping reflects the practice of culturing tea. From Russia, kombucha reached a health and culturally conscious counter-culture in the American 1970’s. The counter-culture of the 1970’s embraced kombucha as a health beverage and home brewing began to immerge.

Some records extend back to the Qin Dynasty (220BC). There is evidence that Genghis Khan and his men drank kombucha in the 12th century for vitality and strength. From Asia it traveled the Silk Road to Japan, Korea and finally Russia, where definite record keeping dates to the late 19th century.

What are the main ingredients found in all kombucha? How is it made?

Water, Tea, Sugar and a fermenting culture called a SCOBY (Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast) make kombucha. After steeping tea in boiling water and allowing it to cool, a SCOBY is added to the room temperature tea and allowed to ferment in a warm room (76-82° Farenheit) for 1-2 weeks.

What are some for the health benefit claims?

Analysis of the contents of kombucha confirms that it is rich in amino-acids, probiotics, antioxidants, glucuronic acid, trace minerals, B vitamins and more… It is a living, enzyme-rich drink. Just about every established medical research university claims that all these things are excellent for your digestion, immune system, and in the case of amino–acids, glucuronic acid and antioxidants, potentially cancer preventatives etc. etc.
