I went to Target yesterday to get the Suja one-day detox bottles, but I didn’t like the sound of some of their flavored drinks. Therfore, I saw they had a new line of new fermented. On the bottle, it states that it is made from berry purée and has 5 billion probiotic cultures. I try to take probiotic pills, but I always fail on it; so when I saw this, I know it could have some health benefits for. After tasting it, I knew I wanted to review it on this blog and research the benefits that it possibly could have.
It is a fizzy and refreshing drink that tastes sweet and sour. Although that might sound weird, the taste was simply delicious. I would highly recommend this tea just on taste alone.
- Schizandra, according to WebMD, helps:
- The resistance to disease & stress
- Energize; it helps and treats physical fatigue
- Normalizes blood pressure & blood sugar
- treat several problems such as: asthma, PMS, diarrhea, depression, etc.
- Lactobacillus Rhamnosus, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, helps “gastro-intestinal infections and diarrhea, and stimulation of immune responses that promote vaccination or even prevent certain allergic symptom.”
- It is organic, non-gmo, vegan & gluten-free
- Schizandra should possibly not be consumed by anyone pregnant. Suja doesn’t list any warnings, but WebMD stated there is some evidence that has shown that Schizandra can cause contractions in pregnant women. These contractions can cause miscarriages.
- Kombucha Tea still needs to be studied further. They don’t know what is benefited from this kind of yeast; they don’t know any drawbacks either.
List of ingredients:
- Kombucha culture
- Raspberry Purée (organic)
- Blueberry Purée (organic)
- Cane Sugar
- Schizandra berry powder
- Probiotic Lactobacillus Rhamnosus
I personally think that this drink is delicious and healthy- I will probably buy it once a week. But also remember, if you are pregnant, the drawbacks are a bit scary, so I highly recommend not drinking this if your pregnant. If you do decide to do so, Suja did not put a warning on it so it is probably a safe amount of the Schizandra 🙂 In addition, there is no full blown evidence on the effects for pregnant women, I just would be on the safe side.
Thank you for reading & if you every want me to analyze another health drink, just comment below. I will do it if the drink sounds tasty 🙂
