Last week I had an upset stomach one day and it just would not go away. It was just that sour, yukky stomach feeling. I was in the supermarket and instead of picking up some Pepto, I went to the drink section and looked for something with ginger in it. (Did you know that ginger helps with upset stomachs?)
I came across this.
I’ve heard that people love Kombucha and the only ingredients in here are Kombucha, ginger root, and love. I also think love helps with an upset stomach so I decided to try it. I have to be honest, I had to force myeslf to take a few sips of this stuff. It smells and tastes, ironically, like an upset stomach…if you know what I mean. I probably would have figured that out if I read this first. (Seriously, read that if you’re curious about what it is and where it comes from). Its slightly carbonated, which I like when my tummy is upset. And the taste is very bitter… like sucking on a ginger root. Which is great if you like that.
On the positive side, it really helped my stomach! I don’t know if it was psychosomatic because I thought it was supposed to help, or that I willed myself to feel better because I spent $3+ on this bottle of moldy tea, but I’ve been taking sips out of it here and there since when my stomach is feeling off. I would buy it again to help with my stomach, but this is not something I would buy to suck down on a road trip. I am curious about the other flavors, though.
Have you tried Kombucha? Do you like it?
