Katalyst Kombucha makes some of the best tasting kombucha on the market. When I wrote above about social isolation, we can take this metaphor even further: the need for diversity and robustness of the organisms in our body and our relationship to them, helps support good health.
From their website: Kombucha is a naturally fermented traditional beverage made from a mother culture and sweetened tea. The mother culture (known as a SCOBY) is a symbiotic colony of healthy yeast and bacteria. The micro-organisms in the culture break down the sugar and other components of the sweetened tea and create a fizzy, slightly sweet and tart drink. The resulting tonic is high in organic acids and a variety of other compounds that are thought to be supportive to health. Best of all, it tastes great!
