No, Nexba’s smart and robust live culture doesn’t come with its own set of steak knives. But combine it with oolong tea, as with our kombucha range, and something even amazing-er happens.
Place a kombucha culture, or SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeasts), in sweetened oolong tea and it will turn that tea into a sugar-free bowl full of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and health-giving organic acids.
As it digests the sugar, the SCOBY produces a range of organic acids like glucuronic acid, gluconic acid, lactic acid, acetic acid, butyric acid, malic acid and usnic acid; vitamins, particularly B vitamins and vitamin C; as well as amino acids, enzymes.
And let’s not forget the benefits that come from the brewed oolong tea alone which contains (approx.):
- Fluoride: 5–24% of the RDI (Recommended Daily Intake for a human adult)
- Manganese: 26% of the RDI
- Potassium: 1% of the RDI
- Sodium: 1% of the RDI
- Magnesium: 1% of the RDI
- Niacin: 1% of the RDI
As well as amino acids, like theanine and antioxidants (known as tea polyphenols) like theaflavins, thearubigins and EGCG.
Phew! That’s a whole lot of body-loving, health-giving magic right there.
