TLDR: Kombucha has been shown to help prevent cardiovascular disease.
Plenty of people are looking into natural heart attack prevention, and with cardiovascular disease continuing to be the leading cause of death in Australia, we can understand why.
At Two Boys Brew Kombucha, we know kombucha has a long list of health promoting benefits, and the great news is, a clinical study has verified this by concluding that kombucha has heart supporting benefits and should be consumed everyday!
To give you a bit of background into the research, it focused on kombucha’s ability to reduce myocardial damage. We’ll try not to get too sciency, but basically, they wanted to see if kombucha could protect against heart damage and heart attack. (Spoiler Alert: It does.)
When there is an imbalance between the demands of the heart, and the heart’s blood supply to deliver it oxygen and glucose, this can cause death of the heart muscle. This condition is called Myocardial Infarction (MI) AKA heart attack, causing the cardiac membrane to become permeable, and in some cases for it to rupture. MI is a type of heart failure and cause of death.
In a nutshell, the study found that kombucha helps to effectively minimise damage to the cell membrane of the heart. Protecting the membrane keeps your heart healthier and happier, supporting heart attack prevention.
Conclusion of the study:
“The results of the study, reveal that, Kombucha possesses significant antihypertrophic, antihyperglycemic, antihyperlipidemic and membrane stabilising properties. Therefore Kombucha can be recommended for consumption by people suffering from cardiovascular diseases as well as by healthy individuals, on a daily basis.”
So what does this mean for you? Whether you’re recovering from a heart attack, or looking to support your overall heart health, kombucha is your go-to beverage.
