Health Benefits of Consuming Our Lavender Kombucha!

Kombucha Town's Lavender Kombucha is brewed with guayusa tea infused with lavender and sage. This is one of our most popular flavors, especially during the warm summer months. We chose to brew this specific flavor of booch because the combination of ingredients has a multitude of physical and mental health benefits — and it's also delicious! 

Guayusa tea is made from the guayusa leaf, which grows in the Amazonian rainforest. Similar to mate, guayusa isn't actually from a tea plant, its a species of holly tree. Learn more about the guayusa tea we use in our Lavender Kombucha at runa.org.

Scroll down to learn more about the benefits of consuming guayusa tea, lavender, and sage on a regular basis. 


Health Benefits of Guayusa Tea

Harnesses your physical and mental energy
Guayusa tea contains more caffeine than most teas, but still slightly less caffeine than a cup of coffee. Drinking guayusa tea will give you the energy you need to get through your work day — whether that's work, exercise, errands, or adventure. Guayusa tea also helps your body produce dopamine, which will calm your mind, increase overall wellbeing, and improve awareness.

Promotes healthy digestion
When you regularly drink guayusa tea, it helps your body's digestion process and can prevent bloating, upset stomach, and constipation. 

Boost of essential vitamins and minerals
Guayusa tea contains many of the minerals and vitamins your body needs on a daily basis. One cup of guayusa tea gives you a boost of magnesium, potassium, calcium, chromium and zinc! In addition, guayusa tea also nourishes your body with Vitamin D and Vitamin C.

 

Health Benefits of Consuming Lavender

Calms and soothes the stomach
Lavender contains essential polyphenols that fight harmful gut bacteria and help ease overall stomach discomfort. If you are feeling gassy, bloated or nauseous, lavender can help ease your symptoms.

Lowers stress and anxiety
The consumption and aroma of lavender has the ability to help you manage symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression. If you are feeling stressed out from work, school, or life in general, try drinking a can of our lavender kombucha! 

Promotes cardiovascular health
Lavender can help your body lower blood pressure levels and improve blood circulation. This leads to better overall cardiovascular health, and is another significant health benefit of consuming lavender on a regular basis.

 

Health Benefits of Consuming Sage

Improves memory and brain function
Research has shown that sage has the ability to alter a person's cognitive abilities, and might even play a role in treating various neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's disease. 

Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory actions
Sage contains many anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds your body needs on a regular basis. It has been suggested that people who suffer from conditions like arthritis or asthma should increase their consumption of sage!

Improves your mental wellbeing
Sage can play a major role in improving your overall mental wellbeing. Research has shown the consumption of sage can improve your alertness, help you stay calm, and increase your mood!


Kombucha Town's New Cans Feature an Easy-to-Read Caffeine Meter

Here at Kombucha Town, we constantly get asked “How much caffeine is in your kombucha?

The answer is more complex than you might think. Each Kombucha Town flavor contains a different level of caffeine, depending on the type of organic tea it is brewed with. The level of caffeine in kombucha mirrors the level of caffeine in tea: kombucha made with black tea has more caffeine, while kombucha made with green or white tea has less caffeine.

We took your questions to heart, and we are extremely excited to announce that our NEW cans feature a CAFFEINE METER clearly printed on the back — so you'll always able to see how much caffeine you are consuming with each 16 oz. can of Kombucha Town.

Kombucha Town products ranked by estimated caffeine content:

Blueberry White: Low, >10mg of caffeine per serving, made with white tea
Green Jasmine:
Low, >10mg of caffeine per serving, made with green tea
Cascadian Hops: Medium, ~20mg of caffeine per serving, made with black tea
Original Ginger: Medium, ~20mg of caffeine per serving, made with black tea
Lavender: High, ~60mg of caffeine per serving, made with guayusa tea
Guayusa Mint: High, ~60mg of caffeine per serving, 
made with guayusa tea

A caffeine meter is something we haven't seen widely embraced in the kombucha industry, but we hope other companies will follow our lead and put these details on their packaging, too. We believe it is extremely important to educate consumers on exactly what they are drinking, and it is our responsibility to provide information on our products and their specific ingredients.
