Nutrition: More Than Food


March is Nutrition Month in Canada! The month is celebrated throughout Canada to draw attention to the importance of making informed choices and developing healthy food habits. This year, the theme focuses on “More Than Food” – increasing the scope of nutrition and the importance of living a holistic, well-balanced lifestyle.

And, what could be more integral to wellness and balance than gut health? With origins in China in around 221 BCE where it was typically referred to as the “Tea of Immortality”, Kombucha is a raw, fermented, sparkling tea filled with probiotics and healthy yeast that’s good for the gut.

Tea, sugar, and scoby are the key ingredients in making Kombucha, while specific flavours are then created by adding different herbs, spices, and fruit for functionality and health benefits. RISE Kombucha offers all the benefits of this centuries-old recipe with new and innovative flavours without the vinegary taste.

Here are 4 reasons why RISE Kombucha should be your go-to this Nutrition Month (and every month!):

  • Digestive System: helps absorb nutrients and break down food in your intestines;
  • Immune System: help boost your immune system and protect against infections by discouraging the growth of harmful bad bacteria.
  • Skin health: Research studies showing how the gut and skin are intimately connected. Adding probiotics to your diet can lead to clearer and more radiant skin! Studies include improvement on acne, rosacea, eczema, and premature aging;
  • Mental health: A healthy gut leads to a healthy mind! Studies show the positive link between good gut health and mental health. A regular intake of probiotics can help improve anxiety/stress, depression, and even memory!

RISE Kombucha is gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO and available at select retailers across Canada.
