Here is one of my go-to kombucha flavoring recipes! Ginger and lemon are powerhouse foods that support digestion, the immune system and your body’s natural detoxification pathways. I prefer making ginger juice over slicing or grating the ginger for better and more integrated flavor, plus no straining at the end!
Lemons are a rockin' source of vitamin C, B6, potassium, folic acid and flavonoids. Limonene in lemons elevate your liver enzymes and help with the liver’s detoxification process.
Ginger contains gingerols which are the pungent compound of the ginger rhizomes. This food is known for its anti-inflammatory, immune boosting and digestive qualities. Ginger is a warming root that makes you sweat, which is a great way to detox a little bit everyday.
