Is Ether Elixir Like Kombucha?
Yeah. Kinda. But better . . . because I made it, and I tend to be a real showoff, and also because it has 16 times the probiotic count than the leading kombucha!
Ether Elixir is actually more similar to dairy milk kefir - due to being infused with controlled strains of beneficial bacteria and yeasts. Just instead of milk, I use juice!
Kombucha is made from fermented tea, added sugar and a big mushroom / alien / fungal / bacterial situation called “the mother” (cringe). It certainly does have a healthy, hippie element to it - but because it isn’t using controlled probiotics, it is incredibly difficult to determine the actual strains of bacteria and yeast that are present.
I’ll admit it’s tasty and I love when the bars around me have it on tap so I can pretend to be one of those cool beer drinking chicks. But, alas, I am not a cool beer drinking chick, I’m a weird, bacteria obsessed vodka & soda (with a lime) chick and kombucha is just not where I choose to source reliable, multi-strain probiotics.
