Default Kombucha

Kombucha is a fermented beverage that naturally contains healthy properties. It is also a probiotic. It contains less than 0.5% alcohol. You do have to be 21 or older to purchase kombucha, since it does have a small alcohol content.

I have found that drinking a bottle of kombucha takes the edge off of anxiety. It has much less alcohol that beer and wine do, and it's a healthy drink. It doesn't cause depression like beer or wine might.

This is 1 type of kombucha (grape), but there are many brands and some are turmeric, ginger, greenfoods, and other health drinks.

Interesting. I tried it once and kind of liked it, but I didn't know it could help with anxiety. Good find!

Well, it's a tiny bit of alcohol in it that helps with anxiety. I never (I mean never) drink alcohol, as far as the drinks someone thinks of as "alcoholic beverages." So even a minuscule bit of alcohol hits me hard enough so that I can function just fine, but have the edge taken off anxiety.

I suspect that if I drank kombucha regularly I would develop a tolerance to the alcohol in it.

I've always liked kombucha. Okay, not when I was a kid or before that because I hadn't tried it then.


But it's a good beverage.


The ones I have had only had a trace amount of alcohol in them, though; so little that I don't think you had to be over 21 to purchase them. That could have just been the variety that I had though.

Honestly if I'm drinking kombucha I'd rather have it be the one with the least amount of alcohol possible.
