GT’s Kombucha is 100% raw and organic. Kombucha might be called by different names outside of the United States (including Manchurian Tea, Manchu Fungus, Tea Kvass, Mo-Gu Fungus japonicus, Kwassan, and more). Fans of GT’s Kombucha either call it a tea, or they call it an elixer. There are two lines of GT’s Kombucha. The Enlightened Raw Kombucha is for all ages, and the Classic Raw Kombucha is available for people who are 21 or older. The Classic varieties are 100% organic raw kombucha, while the Synergy varieties contain 5% natural fruit juice and 95% kombucha. You cannot buy GT’s Kombucha from its website, so the price could vary depending on which store you bought it at.
Foods that are organic were grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, or ionizing radiation. Organic foods are GMO free. According to the Mayo Clinic, kombucha tea is a fermented drink made with tea, sugar, bacteria, and yeast. Some people feel that kombucha can stimulate the immune system, prevent cancer, improve digestion and liver function. The Mayo Clinic says there is no scientific evidence to support these health claims. GT’s Kombucha has its headquarters located in Beverly Hills, California. The company got started after GT’s mother, Laraine, was diagnosed with breast cancer. She was drinking a lot of kombucha, and feels that this is what prevented her cancer from metastasized.
