The latest from instagram

Real kombucha is made by fermenting tea and sugar using a culture called a SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast). When these are in symbiosis, magic happens.

Understand the difference between highly filtered, watered down concentrates with added alcohol sugars, selling in supermarkets in cans for $2 where the aluminium may still leach into the product compared with small batch real kombucha in bottles and you’ll not only understand why there’s a cost difference but you’ll understand there’s a health benefit difference as well.

The gut is home to trillions of bacteria, both good and bad. When these bacteria are in balance, they contribute to overall well-being, including healthy skin.

One of the key factors that affect gut health is our diet. Consuming a diet high in processed foods, sugar, and unhealthy fats can disrupt the natural balance of bacteria in the gut. This imbalance, known as dysbiosis, can trigger inflammation throughout the body, including the skin. On the other hand, a diet rich in fiber, whole foods, and fermented foods can promote a diverse and healthy gut microbiome, leading to clearer and more radiant skin.

So a healthy gut equals healthy skin. By taking care of your gut through a balanced diet, stress management, and hydration, you’ll be well on your way to achieving that radiant complexion you’ve always desired. So, start nourishing your gut, and let your skin thank you!

Happy Monday, Helen

I’m Helen, I brew and create every single bottle of HOTI Kombucha right here in Bundaberg🥰

I founded HOTI in 2016 after looking for an alternative to cordial, soft drink, flavoured milk and even alcohol for my family.

From a modest, home delivery business to a thriving, award winning enterprise, HOTI Kombucha is a small biz success that I’m very proud of.

I hope you know that I’m truly grateful for every bottle you purchase, it supports my dream to make this amazing and magical drink for you!

From the bottom of my heart, 🙏🙏🙏

What’s so good about kombucha?? It contains Saccharomyces Boulardii - the Good Yeast.

Did you know in addition to the good bacteria in kombucha, there is a special probiotic yeast called Saccharomyces Boulardii (S. boulardii) that is resistant to antibiotics, which makes it incredibly useful for maintaining a healthy gut when treating an illness with antibiotics. It is one of the most researched probiotics and has been used world wide to support gastrointestinal health.

In addition, Kombucha can alleviate constipation and diarrhoea. The probiotic in kombucha, S. boulardii, is actually being used to treat all sorts of bowel disorders including Clostridium difficile, acute diarrhoea, antibiotic-associated diarrhoea, some parasitic forms of diarrhoea and other gastrointestinal disorders.

Do you eat liver? I love Chicken Pate! Here’s why you should too!

Chicken liver can be beneficial for gut health due to several reasons:

1. Source of Natural Prebiotics: Prebiotics are non-digestible fibers that serve as food for beneficial gut bacteria. Chicken liver contains prebiotic fibers such as inulin and oligosaccharides, which can help promote the growth and activity of beneficial gut bacteria, supporting a healthy gut microbiome.

2. Rich in B Vitamins: Chicken liver is a great source of B vitamins, including B12, riboflavin (B2), and niacin (B3). These vitamins can help support the health of the digestive system by aiding in the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. They also contribute to the production of digestive enzymes and promote a healthy gut lining.

3. Contains Choline: Chicken liver is a rich source of choline, an essential nutrient that plays a crucial role in various bodily functions, including liver function, brain development, and neurotransmitter synthesis. Choline also supports gut health by aiding in the production of phosphatidylcholine, a component of cell membranes that helps maintain the integrity of the gut lining.

4. Nutrient-Dense: Chicken liver is packed with essential nutrients, including iron, zinc, and vitamin A, which are important for maintaining a healthy gut. These nutrients support the overall health and function of the digestive system, including the absorption and utilization of nutrients, the production of digestive enzymes, and the support of the gut barrier function.

However, it`s important to note that individual sensitivities and dietary needs can vary. Some individuals may have specific dietary restrictions or conditions that require them to limit or avoid certain foods, including chicken liver. It`s always best to consult with a healthcare professional or registered dietitian for personalized advice regarding your specific dietary needs and gut health.

I need to ask. Where do you keep your kombucha once you get it home?? 🤔🤔

Please tell me the fridge!! 😜

Kombucha is no ordinary beverage. She’s mysteriously magical.

A living elixir, full of beneficial yeast and bacteria. And like us, when it’s cold, it gets lazy, and keeps quiet!!

But , when it’s warm, and it’s certainly warm , it’s easily excited and wants to party.

So if you don’t keep it cold, you might find your kombucha wants to join your party 🎉🎉🎉 💥💥💥

But seriously, please keep your kombucha refrigerated. 🧊🧊🧊

FERMENTED FOOD DIET INCREASES MICROBIOME DIVERSITY & LOWERS INFLAMMATION 🦠
.
A diet rich in fermented foods enhances the diversity of gut microbes and decreases molecular signs of inflammation, according to researchers at the Stanford School of Medicine.
.
In a clinical trial, 36 healthy adults were randomly assigned to a 10-week diet that included either fermented or high-fiber foods. The two diets resulted in different effects on the gut microbiome and the immune system.
.
Eating foods such as yogurt, kefir, fermented cottage cheese, kimchi and other fermented vegetables, vegetable brine drinks, and kombucha tea led to an increase in overall microbial diversity, with stronger effects from larger servings.

"This is a stunning finding," said Justin Sonnenburg, PhD, an associate professor of microbiology and immunology. "It provides one of the first examples of how a simple change in diet can reproducibly remodel the microbiota across a cohort of healthy adults."
.
So, do you regularly include fermented food and drinks into your daily diet?

These are the very reasons why I started HOTI Kombucha, to bring real, authentic kombucha to your gut!

Did you know that almost every aspect of HOTI kombucha production and the business model is recyclable and sustainable? We have very little waste!

Our glass bottles are refill or recycled, all our spent tea and flavourings are composted, all our packaging is recycled and all our used scoby cultures go to worm farms.

We are over 90% reusable, recyclable and biodegradable!!
