Lewtress Hi Potency Kombucha is a refreshing, slightly sparkling drink served cold. Kombucha is known to have many health benefits and its origin dates back thousands of years to China.
The gut microbiome is collectively a vast number of organisms such as bacteria, yeasts, fungi, viruses and protozoans that live in our digestive system. Scientists are increasingly treating the microbiome as an organ in its own right. A well balanced microbiome (also known as gut flora) is essential for bodily health.
Modern day diets which include highly processed foods and excessive sugar, along with the routine use of antibiotics, can cause an imbalance between healthy and unhealthy gut flora. When unhealthy organisms (such as unfriendly yeasts), get the upper hand, our health can suffer in many ways.
Kombucha is a symbiotic, which means that it contains probiotic bacteria and prebiotic plant chemical polyphenols.
Probiotic means bacteria which your gut uses in a beneficial way to promote good digestive health and balance.
Prebiotic foods are high in special types of fibre and work with probiotics to increase the friendly bacteria in the gut microbiome.
Lewtress is one of only a handful of producers in the UK who supply tested probiotic Kombucha products.
Trading Standards have repeatedly tested our products with their 'on the shelf test' proving that Lewtress Hi Potency Kombucha tonics are totally natural, live palatable drinks and remain this way, without the use of any additives, colourings, stabilisers, preservatives or heat treatment/pasteurisation processes of any kind. Most of the commercially produced Kombucha products on the market today are pasteurised, which unfortunately destroys the beneficial probiotics, then sugar is added, which turns them into just another soft drink, with limited health benefits.
Lewtress's advanced and unique fermentation process has produced a Kombucha tonic that naturally contains the major detoxifying element glucuronic acid sought after, in vain, by all commercial Kombucha manufacturers. This detoxifying element has been the subject of a study by the Kombucha research group in America which set out to find this important element. It found that out of the nineteen other manufacturers, (bottled and capsulated tested) none of them were proven to contain glucuronic acid.
Lewtress Kombucha tonic has undergone two independent tests, one by a British laboratory and the other by the Kombucha research Lab in Utah, both confirmed glucuronic acid present in Lewtress products.
Lewtress's recommended serving of Hi Potency Kombucha health tonic is just 50ml three times a day, for the first three weeks of use, after which, this can be increased if desired. Other makers of low potency Kombucha drinks often suggest drinking 250ml at a time. In fact, a single 1 litre bottle of Lewtress Hi Potency Kombucha contains 20 servings, so a week's supply per bottle!
Lewtress Hi Potency Kombucha is safe for both children and pregnant women when used as recommended.
Lewtress have found that by extracting dried herbs using pressed liquid concentrate from Kombucha cultures, they have uniquely produced a range of liquid bio fusions (e.g. Horny Goat Weed, Echinacea, Elderberry etc.) with Kombucha concentrate. Bio fusions can be taken directly on the tongue, for fast and greatly enhanced effect. See our range of Kombucha Bio Fusions here.
