Health-Ade Kombucha

Posted by Jessica Windell on

It’s no secret that Kombucha is a fan favorite around here. It’s one of those ancient medicinal remedies that has been used for ages and has finally gained ground in the U.S. relatively recently. Since then, we’ve been on the hunt for the best of the best. Kombucha is chock full of probiotics and enzymes, which have been known to assist with detoxification and gut health. It also contains glucosamines, which is essential to proper joint health.

Health Ade bottle - original flavorWith that, it’s really no surprise that our newest fave find calls its kombucha creation Health-Ade.

Health-Ade takes its brewing seriously, using only four main ingredients: tea, sugar, water and scoby (a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast that gives kombucha its fizziness). Kombucha is made via primary and secondary fermentation, which transforms sweet tea into kombucha and significantly reduces the sugar content, resulting in a delicious, bubbly, feel-good beverage that is naturally low in caffeine.

Health-Ade is the only commercial kombucha fermented 100% in glass, meaning no threat of leeching from toxic plastic or metal — which we give an A+ — and it’s bottled in UV-sensitive bottles to protect the probiotics from harmful light.

This brand goes the extra mile to ensure its product is the best it can be; this means staying small, all around. In fact, its kombuchas are brewed in tiny 2.5-gallon batches, ensuring quality in each brew. And even better, it’s naturally fermented. However long the brew takes is what it takes, which means you won’t find any synthetic probiotics in their bottles — no strict schedule here!

Health-Ade boasts nine fresh, natural flavors including Original, Plum, Ginger Lemon, Cayenne Cleanse, Pink Lady Apple, California Grape, Beet, Carrot and Pomegranate. None of the flavors contain concentrates, dyes, flavored powders, extra sugars or yeasts – only raw, cold-pressed juice from organic produce, so every sip is deliciously pure. On top of that, Health-Ade is certified organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, raw, vegan and kosher. Clearly, our Perfect Bar team is on board with that!

Health-Ade was founded by a husband, wife and best friend team who were all looking to make the best tasting and highest quality kombucha on the market today. Justin and Daina Trout (a nutritional biochemist) and Vanessa Dew take pride in hand-crafting their kombucha without having to succumb to market pressures or compromised quality.

Brewed 100% in Los Angeles, Health-Ade makes it its mission to “inspire others to love their life and self so much that they altogether forget about fear.” We love that the team also lives by the motto “follow your gut,” because that’s where you’ll find a happier, healthier life, one kombucha at a time.
