The ever-hyped super drink that we have all heard of: Kombucha! Kombucha is a fermented by-product of sugared black or green tea. But, what is all this hype about and how does it fare on the nutritional value? Let’s explore more about this exotic drink and if it is indeed good for those trying to hold back on sugar.

Improve your kombucha intake
• Mostly, the market is filled with kombucha that is high in added sugars and preservatives. Try looking for a brand that sells sugar-free varieties. This will help in preventing the sugar spike from simple sugars.
• Portion control is a great way to optimise kombucha intake. Instead of a full bottle, restrict consumption to half. It will prevent potential sugar spikes.
• Try having kombucha with a side of fruits. This will balance out the glucose load with micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals.

Contrary to sugary versions, sugar-free kombucha is known to increase insulin activity. Black tea kombucha is known to reduce blood sugar when compared to regular tea. Those of you trying to cut back on sugar, but still require a caffeine kick can bravely try kombucha instead of that morning cuppa.
