Gaining commercial popularity over the past year, this fermented beverage has risen to the top of the list of most beneficial health drinks. Find out why everyone’s talking about kombucha.

Kombucha is a sweetened tea that is fermented using “The Mother” also referred to as SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria). This drink is made up of simply four ingredients: The Mother, water, organic raw unrefined sugar, and green/white/black tea. This pro-biotic beverage has been around for more than 2000 years and studies show that it aids digestion, is rich in anti-oxodants, and boosts energy levels.

“The SCOBY actually metabolizes the organic sugar and caffeine in the tea, so you don’t have to, resulting in a drink packed with probiotics, amino acids and enzymes” – RISE Kombucha

The ardent following this drink in Montreal is impressive. I’ve recently noticed that most, if not all health food stores now stock RISE Kombucha, a Montreal-based company established in 2012. RISE Kombucha offers 6 different flavours that are tonic and lightly sweet, making them refreshing beverages to enjoy.
