Kombucha is a naturally effervescent fermented tea. It contains living probiotics, plus powerful enzymes and natural acids that help promote a healthy gut and may help to detoxify the body. GT’s Kombucha debuted in 1995 when its founder, “GT Dave,” was inspired to bottle Kombucha and share it with the world after his mother credited the homemade brew in helping her recover from breast cancer. Still handcrafted in small batches to this day, GT’s Kombucha is organic, vegan and gluten-free, with no added sugar or sweeteners.
“Partnering with Nékter Juice Bar allows us to introduce Kombucha in a new way to more people, who are eager to integrate its powerful nutritional impact into their daily living,” said GT Dave, Founder and CEO of GT’s Living Foods.
