Is Madonna ditching Kabbalah-blessed water in favor of the Kombucha mushroom? Reports out of the UK suggest that Kirsten Dunst, Halle Berry, Madonna and Meg Ryan have all been spotted sipping on the new energy drink that supposedly contains a whole host of health-boosting qualities. From the article,
Made from an infusion of green tea, black tea and sugar being metabolised by the Kombucha mushroom, the yeasts break down the sugar and combine with the tea to form powerful anti-oxidants, minerals and vitamins, which work to fight wrinkles, diabetes and to support the immune system.
Apparently, the drink’s magical health claims comes from something called Probiotic bacteria — a “a gut-friendly bacteria that packs a powerful energy punch, increases metabolism and aids weight loss, cleanses the blood of disease-inducing toxins, and reduces cholesterol.” It also helps curb alcohol consumption; so perhaps Lindsay Lohan will also soon be packing Kombucha.
While the remedy of using Kombucha mushrooms to help with health comes from China — thankfully, all production of this drink is done in the UK. For the time being, we’re looking at a locally produced beverage. It’s also meant to be sipped in small quantities — so we don’t expect celebs to chug several down a day like Fiji or Smart Water.
