Inside the gut are about 100 trillion live microorganisms that vitally contribute to a strong immune system. These microbes are essential for fighting off threats, including the virus that causes COVID-19, as well as contributing to good digestion, heart health, brain health, improved mood and healthy sleep. Healthy bacteria in the gut balance the immune response against pathogens, ensuring the immune response is strong and effective, but not hyperactive (half of American adults have chronic illnesses such as Type 2 diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease, associated with a hyperactive immune system linked to their gut microbiome).*
So, there’s never been a better time to enhance your gut health, and Hempire kombucha contains living microorganisms caused by its SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast) breaking down sugars. These bacteria can align with your gut biome and have good probiotic effects. Of course you need to keep eating a diet high in fibre, with fruit and resistant starch too! A kombucha that’s too sugary can have a negative effect, but that’s not the case with Hempire, which is a hemp kombucha.
Stephanie describes her Hempire kombucha as being ‘alchemically crafted in sacred surroundings using ancient techniques and a natural fermenting process causing a transmutation into liquid gold, a process of metamorphosis. This live culture becomes a highly unique elixir with God- and Goddess-like qualities, high vibrations and organic flavours from nature.’
This is a one-woman operation: Hempire kombucha, as well as having pretty cool labels, is hand brewed, hand bottled, labelled and hand delivered to stores in the local area with her passionate and creative drive. She says you can drink it as a cold refreshing medicinal beverage, or as a mixer with your favourite spirits, and… each bottle contains THREE serves!
I think this last point is important; I drank my entire bottle in five minutes and I don’t think that’s recommended. However, I actually noticed immediate positive effects. As a diabetic who’s cut down on alcohol, my compensatory massive consumption of zero-alcohol beer has sapped my vitality and left me feeling like a Zeppelin in a high wind. But what Stephanie calls ‘high strength strong hard core kombucha brewed for pirates!’ seemed to rejuvenate even this flabby general manager. Well worth trying!
