Fermented teas with targeted botanicals and functional ingredients for synergistic energy, relaxation, immune, and gut support.

Kombucha is known for creating a number of byproducts that are healthy to our gut, immune system, and metabolism. When the right organisms are used, they can be useful for probiotics.

MKombucha offers botanical elixirs and hemp extract elixirs.

The first group of elixirs focuses on immune, gut, energy, and hydration support.

Our favorite elixir is the "Gut Health" elixir. 

The MKombucha Gut Health contains 3 billion probiotic spores across 4 species.

Because spore probiotics levels are in lower concentrations in the small intestine than you might see with other strains, doses of 3-4 billion CFU can make a much bigger splash than standard probiotic strains that may need 10 billion+ CFU per strain to make a difference.

For comparison, the oral spore probiotic supplement called Megasporebiotic contains 4 billion probiotic spores across 5 of the most popular, active, and researched species of spore bacteria).

The difference in the spores used is that Megaspore contains Bacillus licheniformis which is excluded in the gut Health kombucha elixir yet adds diversity and potency in the oral supplement.

Additionally, the Gut Health formula includes 1 gram of precision prebiotic fiber (xylooligosaccharide), and Triphala - a highly popular Ayurvedic herbal formulation traditionally consumed as a tea that supports digestive flow and detoxification among many other support benefits.

For a full prebiotic supplement, we use MegaPre by Microbiome Labs. It is Microbiome Labs that sources both the spore probiotics and the prebiotics in the MKombucha Gut Health elixir.

Despite being small intestinal bacteria, spore probiotics help to crowd out unwanted strains and are used commonly to help with SIBO.

Excess spores simply turn back into spore form and are released with normal bowel movements. While colonized, spores produce short chain fatty acids, carotenoids, vitamins, and more that help promote good bacteria.

They also are known to produce a wide range of antibacterial compounds, especially the Bacillus subtilis HU58 strain.

Why Spore Probiotics?

Spore probiotics are ideal probiotic organisms as they are stable at wide temperature ranges and can be safely exposed to light. They also survive the pH of stomach acid and are safely delivered to the gut for a true probiotic effect.

Kombucha that uses Lactobacilli strains for fermentation will still offer beneficial byproducts from the fermentation, but Lactobacilli is very susceptible to the acidic stomach - very few "live" bacteria make it alive past the stomach barrier.

So while cultures can certainly be "live" in the kombucha, once consumed, 90% or more are going to be killed by the stomach acid. Lactobacilli probiotics also produce lactic acid which can gunk up metabolism when high, and they can produce histamine - which can irritate cells and contribute to histamine intolerance symptoms.

While Lactobacilli are featured in many probiotics and can be helpful in their own ways - they only comprise some 1% of total bacteria in the gut flora and are susceptible to overgrowth issues and overstimulation of the immune system in the short-term. 

The "dead" bacteria like Lactobacilli that were killed by stomach acid can still stimulate the immune system and provide a transient effect, but are not fueling a true "probiotic" or colonizing effect.

Spore probiotics like Bacillus coagulans, Bacillus subtilis Hu58, Bacillus clausii, and Bacillus indicus Hu36 have no trouble making it past stomach acid to the intestinal environment where they germinate and exert their benefits.

Once delivered to the gut, spore probiotics work their magic - producing a range of vitamins and minerals, and short chain fatty acids that our body uses.

In doing so, spore bacteria also promote levels of keystone bacteria in the gut like Bifidobacteria, Akkermansia muciniphila, and Faecalbacterium prausznitzii. Bacillus bacteria have also been shown to improve leaky gut in as little as 30 days, and to improve microbial diversity on their own and in combination with prebiotics.

For a deeper dive into the health benefits, check out Health Benefits and Safety of Bacillus Probiotics.

The benefit is enhanced further when combined with flora-feeding prebiotics - featured in the gut health elixir.

This synergy in promoting microbial diversity has been supported with a clinical trial using Megasporebiotic and Megaprebiotic - two products that contain a similar profile of spore probiotics and the xylooligosaccharide prebiotic used in MKombucha's Gut Health Elixir.

Kombucha has many evidence-based benefits on its own.

When you combine the probiotic and prebiotic synergy with the organic acids and fermentation byproducts of kombucha - one might expect further synergy and added support for energy, antioxidant power, and more - all reasons why I like MKombucha Gut Health.

For those who live outside of areas where MKombucha is carried and shipped (AZ, CA, CO, NM, NV, OR, UT, WA) you can supplement with Megasporebiotic and MegaPre independently.

The Megasporebiotic capsules can be opened and sprinkled into homemade or other brands of kombucha or taken directly. Learn how to take megasporebiotic.

My favorite hemp-infused kombucha from MKombucha is the Lavender Chamomile Unwind.

The body's initial response to fatigue and overwork is often anxiety. Lavender has been shown to support stress as a scent, but can also be used orally as a tea - providing an enjoyable flavor with some health benefits too. I add dried culinary-grade lavender to tea and smoothies for added flavor profiles and stress support.

For example, a specific lavender extract known as Silexin is available commercially as Lavela Ws 1265 softgels - which have research supporting mood, anxiety, and depression when taken orally.

The broad-spectrum hemp extract infusion also supports mood, inflammation, immune balance, and more.

What I like most about the Unwind Kombucha formula is that it uses decaffeinated teas.

Most Kombucha's use green or black tea that can be more naturally balanced source of caffeine than coffee, but can still be stimulating if taken too late in the day.

With Unwind by MKombucha, you get the relaxation support of lavender, chamomile, and hemp extract alongside the benefits of Kombucha without the overstimulation from excess caffeine.
