It’s Organic September and we wanted to talk about some of the fabulous products out there that are sourced ethically and sustainably.
Have you tried Equinox Kombucha? It’s a fermented, fizzy health tea that uses 3 simple organic ingredients. It has a real unique flavour of sweet and sour that’s refreshing on the palate. Not only does it taste great, it has antimicrobial prowess! All those compounds produced by the fermentation process helps to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria.
Fermented foods are big and as we head towards the colder months, it’s the perfect tonic to help boost our immune systems, detoxify and maintain a healthy gut.
The “Elixir of Life”
It is believed that Kombucha originates from ancient China more than 2000 years ago. Used as a healing and energy giving elixir, it then spread throughout Japan, Russia and Europe.
A bit about Equinox
They have a remarkable story. It all started when friends went backpacking across Asia and they discovered kombucha. They brought it back to start brewing for friends and family at their home in Yorkshire. Then they started selling it at the local market. Demand grew and in a matter of 6 years, they became the leading UK kombucha brand, winning numerous awards and ever expanding into the international market.
Another thing that’s fantastic about this company! they use recyclable materials and employ sustainable practices, eliminating the use of plastic in the office and in life.
We love what they do and it’s such a great hit in our stores. If you haven’t already tried it, we highly recommend you do.
