Get Kombucha Review and Giveaway! -- CLOSED




Hey everyone! My next review is for GetKombucha.com. Get Kombucha is a great website that sells a variety of Kombucha products and brewing products. But before we get into the review let's just dive into what exactly Kombucha is. Basically, according to wikipedia, Kombucha is "an effervescent tea-based beverage that is often consumed for its anecdotal health benefits or medicinal purposes." It has various medicinal and health benefits and I've heard great things from various sources including my old Ukranian roommate, so I had to try it.



I was sent the Kombucha extract along with two goodies: Daily Herbal Cleanse, and Magic Vine Tea.

The 15x is a Kombucha extract which is really awesome because it's kind of the easier and cheaper way to drink kombucha. Many people either brew it or buy the bottles of Kombucha tea at a store. Here you can just add a few drops to tea, water, heck you can even make a salad dressing with it. You can even place a few drops under your tongue if you are in a hurry.

I really like this because, like I said, I have been beginning to follow this new Kombucha kind of trend but it isn't a trend as it it more of a new awesome product to incorporate into your daily life. I really like how easy it is to use this extract and I have been adding it to my tea but also mainly putting it under my tongue just because it is super fast and sometimes when I'm thirsty I forget to put it in my beverages.

Some benefits of this Kombucha extract include: It alkalize the body. Lowers the ph level of your first batch if you decide to brew., ensuring a successful brew. Aids in digestion of heavy meals. Perfect for Diabetics, Candida Diets, and those wishing to have Sugar Free Kombucha because it is sugar free. It also is, as it says on the bottle, an energizer, rejuvenator, antioxidant, and detoxifier. Definitely check out the website for more kombucha benefits

Overall, I really enjoyed this product it was really great and I'm glad it is easy to use and it's a great healthy alternative than just drinking water all of the time. There's also additional kombucha recipes that they have too.

I also received the Daily Herbal Cleanse which just looked like loose leaf tea. It is similar in that you pour boiling water over it and let it steep for 5-7 minutes. It was really great, I had to add a smidge of sugar because it tastes similar to tea and with my tea I do go a bit sugar crazy. I hope that didn't mess it up but it still tasted really great.

Lastly the Magic Vine Tea was also pretty delicious. The Magic Vine tea is actually made with Jiaogulan which is a herbaceous vine of the cucumber family, it is known for being a anthropogenic herb and anti-oxidant. The Magic Vine Tea promotes wellness and they actually have an entire system you can check out here. I thought the tea was really good, I had it with some lemon and honey and it tasted lovely. It says on the website that you should consume it once it a day in order to see results, I haven't really been doing that because I was sick and then away a few days but it still makes me feel good when I drink it. I have a cough rocking right now and it really handles my cough very well, not sure if it is the type of tea or just tea in general though. Definitely check it out.

Overall, all of the products that they sent me were really great and I don't have any negative complaints. Definitely check out the Get Kombucha website for more info about Kombucha as well as the awesome products if you want to take more steps in leading a healthier life!
