More often than not, ‘out-of-sight, out-of-mind’ is the blasé approach to looking after our body’s internal organs because, well, we crave visible results.
We’re hard-wired to see the effects of our efforts on the surface, so with the Kombucha bubble not bursting anytime soon (that’s fermented tea to you and me), it might just be the secret to getting your skin to glow by looking after your gut.

What is Kombucha?
Kombucha may look similar to an ice tea but with an added fizz. It also has way more benefits than your average beverage.
‘Kombucha is a fermented black or green tea drink. The tea is combined with a bacterial mother (called a scoby) and sugar and left to ferment for a period of time. During the fermentation process, gas is produced, making the drink “fizzy”. The flavour is usually tart and has very small traces of alcohol from the yeast fermentation’, explains Registered nutritionist Clarissa Lenherr.
