Synergy is a brand of live-culture Kombucha manufactured by Millennium Products. Like other forms of Kombucha, Synergy is renowned for its tangy, exotic flavor and numerous health benefits. Synergy Kombucha is available in ten proprietary flavors, including Mission Mango, Superfruits, Trilogy, Cosmic Cranberry, Ginger Berry and Strawberry Serenity.

Kombucha Defined

Kombucha is a fermented beverage made from tea and specialized fungus cultures. In China, it has been used for centuries as a table beverage and elixir. Although Kombucha is fermented, it does not contain appreciable amounts of alcohol. Kombucha does not cause intoxication.

Benefits

All forms of Kombucha contain enzymes, antioxidants and polyphenols. Synergy Kombucha is raw and unpasteurized, so it contains live probiotics, similar to yogurt. The American Cancer Society reports that kombucha is believed to boost the immune system and help fight cancer, especially in the early stages of the disease. The ACS states that there are no human studies to support this theory, but use of the fresh-brewed tea has been linked to occasional deaths, and they warn against over-consumption.
