Lewtress Live Kombucha - Bancha Green Tea 1L

Availability: In stock


Quick Overview

Traditionally brewed probiotic beverage. A well and professionally fermented kombucha will have a slightly acidic taste, since through the fermentation process the sugar is converted first into alcohol and subsequently into valuable lactic and other soluble organic acids.

Lewtress kombucha is safe for both children and pregnant women when used as recommended. Lewtress believe kombucha has to be probiotic (‘live’) to contain beneficial properties. Lewtress is one of only a handful of producers in the UK who supply probiotic kombucha products. This has been verified in tests by Trading Standards.

After kombucha has been thoroughly and correctly fermented by Lewtress, it consists of acetic acid, carbonic acid, vitamins C, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, B15, various beneficial enzymes and essential amino acids, folic acid, gluconic acid, glucuronic acid and lactic acid, as well as usnic acid – a natural product of fermentation, suppressing development of micro-organisms not belonging to the kombucha culture.

Based on the finest Japanese whole leaf roasted bancha green tea, this medium sweet tasting kombucha is often recommended for the steady rebuilding of health in those recovering from chronic illness. From the feedback we have gained from our loyal customers, bancha green tea kombucha is well tolerated and helps to keep energy levels up.

Green tea is rich in catechin polyphenols, in particular those called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG’s are powerful anti-oxidants known to inhibit the growth of abnormal cells, without harming healthy tissue. 

Green Tea also contains antioxidants that help combat heart related ailments as well as giving holistic protection to the entire body. Green tea extracts have also been shown to inhibit the growth of bad bacteria in the mouth, relating to reduced cavities.

We recommend a three-month course of bancha kombucha for any gentle detox, especially following major operations, allopathic drug therapy or for anyone who is on long-term conventional medicine. Don’t forget, if you have taken or are taking anti-biotics it is recommended that you use a probiotic to rebalance the gut flora.

Kombucha has also been shown to support fertility (in both partners) and provide support during pregnancy.

Compared with other soft drinks on the market (most of which have been treated or preserved in some way, thereby limiting the health benefits) our bancha green tea kombucha has been fermented as a health tonic, the way nature intended, with no artificial flavourings, colourings, or preservatives of any kind.
