BBC had all the fermented feels going this week with their kombucha feature on the ‘Easy Ways to Live Well’ program.
Following the trusty advice of leading gut health expert Professor Tim Spector, BBC presenter Steph McGovern increased her fibre, vegetable and fruit intake and got on the booch-train to incorporate more fermented foods and drinks into her diet. The result? Steph’s gut health improved from being in the bottom 20% of the population to the top 35%! Ahhhmazing!
The episode further delved into the traditional method of making kombucha – which we follow at Remedy – involving a natural fermentation of sweet tea with a live culture. The result is a sparkling drink that contains live cultures, tea polyphenols and organic acids.
Booch bro, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall was chuffed to show off his kombucha homebrew to Steph and give her the 411 on what’s good for her guts.
“Fermentation creates bacteria. There are lots of exciting bacteria in kombucha, that may not be in your gut already, but your gut will be very happy have.” Says Hugh.
Thankfully you don’t have to be a brew expert like the v dishy Hughy to get your daily dose of booch because we stock the raw, live cultured real deal right here.
