Alright Alright Alright… Don’t take our word for it, take Matthew McConaughay’s; "It’s So Good For Ya”

Welcome to the fifth and final episode in our series explaining the health benefits of kombucha.

We hope by now you’ve learnt a few useful insights into the benefits of kombucha, for a full recap:

1) Digestion & Fermentation - Kombucha is good for the Gut!

2) The Gut-Brain connection

3) Probiotics - One Strain Doesn’t Fit All!

4) Kombucha: The TEA of immortality

Now - in the words of Matthew McConaughey - Alright Alright Alright…. let’s move on to the fifth part of our series (but more on Matthew later!)...

This week we’re discussing how kombucha can play a role in overall health - not just became of how good the actual liquid is for you, but by the habit it can replace.

The Kombucha Liquid

We know by now that kombucha is a fermented tea: full of probiotic bacteria for the gut, L-theanine for the brain and B Vitamins for the nervous system.

No wonder they call it the Tea Of Immortality in China where it originated from over 2000 years ago.

According to The Healthline: “Kombucha is rich in tea polyphenols and acetic acid, which have both been shown to suppress the growth of undesirable bacteria and yeasts.”

Moreover, in the Daily Mail it mentioned that “Cell-based studies and those conducted on animals have shown that kombucha helps protect the liver, combats yeast infections and fights the free-radicals that are associated with the ageing process”

Ok - we get it, kombucha is a healthy drink.

But, the other side of this coin is how we can incorporate it into our lives, in order to get the benefits of the drink AND save on the “cost” of other habits, for example: sugar and alcohol.

The Habit It Can Replace

One of the reasons kombucha is "so good for ya" is because of the habits it can replace.

After decades of mass sugary drink and alcohol consumption - kombucha offers a genuinely interesting alternative to soda and alcohol.

Whilst it is fizzy in substance (like a soda), it is also complex on the pallet (like an alcoholic drink) thanks to the unique fermentation process. 

So, we get a win-win situation here: reduce sugar consumption, reduce alcohol consumption, AND receive a whole host of health benefits at the same time.

Now, we’re not telling you to never drink a beer or coke again (well, maybe not a coke).... But from time to time, maybe consider swapping your sugary soda for a kombucha - or consider alternating one G+T for one Kombucha in the evenings! 

Heck - we’d even suggest mixing it up with your favourite cocktails like they do in the world's best bar: The Connaught Bar

Fix8 Kombucha is a much healthier and lower sugar mixer that pairs perfectly with any white spirit. 

The takeaway

Kombucha is a delicious drink that’s bursting with health benefits, but also could replace a negative habit.

Your liver, gut and brain will thank you for drinking Fix8 not just in the moment (hello kombucha buzz), but also the next morning (hello cared for liver!).

To link back to our favourite "alright-er" - Matthew McConaughey - who was recently quoted in an online interview for RED magazine on how he stays healthy: “I love healthy eating. I’ve been drinking a bottle a day of kombucha for 20 years. It’s so good for ya.”.

Don’t take our word for it, but take Matthews: "It’s so good for ya"
