Like other fermented foods, kombucha is extremely rich in probiotics and active enzymes. There are myriad purported health benefits of kombucha, from improved digestion and metabolism to boosted immunity, healthier skin and hair, and liver detoxification. Such anecdotal claims have been reported for thousands of years by kombucha enthusiasts, and there is a growing body of scientific evidence that supports the health properties of kombucha specifically (not to mention an abundance of existing evidence in favour of fermented foods).
Because of its potency, it is recommend that pregnant women and children under 12 seek guidance from a health professional before consuming kombucha. There is no established recommended daily intake amount; that said, it is suggested that 250-500ml (half a bottle to one full bottle) per day is a good start.
A NOTE ON SUGAR: Many people who are trying to reduce their sugar consumption have expressed concern over the fact that kombucha is made with sugar, but you simply can’t make kombucha without it. The sugar is added to feed the SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast), not you. Besides noting that Theonista uses raw unrefined evaporated cane juice, it is important to understand that that sugar is an essential component of the fermentation process and is converted from sucrose into a variety of other compounds which make kombucha what it is. Sugar serves as food for the SCOBY, the mother culture that is responsible for converting the starter liquid to the final product. The residual sugar left in kombucha after the scoby “digests” it varies from batch to batch but at the end of the fermentation process, only a trace of the initial sugar remains (less than orange or carrot juice, for comparison). A shorter fermentation time yields a much sweeter, higher sugar product.
Small clumps or sediment may form over time ; this is a sign of raw, living kombucha. Strain if desired or shake gently to mix but be very careful when opening the bottle as kombucha is naturally carbonated and vigorous shaking may cause leakage.
Theonista raw kombucha (filtered water, organic rooibos, non-GMO unbleached evaporated cane sugar, active cultures), organic hibiscus, pomegranate juice (no sugar added). Absolutely no added colors, flavors, or preservatives.

Amazing flavour11/02/2021, By MariusIt's nice but would be better in a glass bottle!03/02/2021, By SabzI want to give this like 10 stars.
Best kombucha ever. Nuff said.13/01/2021, By EilidhMy daughters love this one! It is very fizzy so care needs to be taken when opening but they enjoy the bubbles.11/12/2020, By TanitaTo be honest for me it was ok. I didn't like the flavour as much as the Ginger one but we all have our preferences. It's still a great product.25/11/2020, By shereleReally delicious and tangy but the fizz was unmanageable. Left it for hours after delivery and when I opened it I lost 2/3 of the contents. Never had that happen with Kombucha before but I'd definitely buy it again and try.02/11/2020, By SabzMum and I both agree to this being our favorite ; the most spectacular balanced flavor complimented with the just the right fizz.
Opening however was messy (probably during transport)..

And this particular one I buy weekly. It's really good. Light on the palate and smooth.11/04/2018, By JaneFI decided to give Kombucha a try, starting with this product. I just had some and it's rather tasty. Would be delicious with some crushed ice and mint - but I'm not sure if adding ice to it would be recommended..? Still it is nicer than I expected, and a good start on the journey to being more mindful about my gut-health.12/03/2018, By TamlynI really enjoyed this flavor, does wonders for the body..12/01/2018, By ClareLove it06/11/2017, By BethGreat taste and way to boost natural probiotics`101/11/2017, By RivaLiquid superpower!
