You’ve just finished an intense HIIT class, a solid weightlifting session or a long run and you’re feeling sweaty, thirsty and low on energy. The first thing you might reach for is a sugary sports drink or an artificial energy drink filled with caffeine to give you that ‘pick me up’ that you so desperately crave. However, what if there was another option that you could grab that will provide you with the benefits you’re looking for without the added sugar and other nasties?
That option is kombucha, a delicious carbonated drink made from tea that is full of health benefits and is perfect to be enjoyed after a gruelling workout session. Our team at Kombucha Warehouse has put together this post to share with you 3 reasons why you should be drinking kombucha after your next workout.
Kombucha Warehouse is the UK's largest online retailer of kombucha, delivering delicious flavours of ‘booch' directly to our customers' doors. To learn more, read on and to browse our full range of tasty kombucha tea - head over to our website today.
- Perfect for Hydrating and Replacing Electrolytes
When you finish a workout, one of the first things you want to do is quench your thirst and rehydrate. When you work out, you lose a lot of water due to sweating as well as electrolytes which are essential for your body. Electrolytes will help you to recover better after a workout and they are necessary to help your body perform to its full potential. Kombucha is filled with electrolytes, including sodium, potassium and calcium, and it’s perfect for getting your body back to balance after a workout. It's also ideal for hydration and will help you to hydrate fast, so you feel your best again after a sweaty workout.
- Natural Energy Boost Without the Crash
A lot of people drink caffeine after a workout to give them an energy boost and perk them up as they might be feeling tired and lethargic after expending so much energy. Kombucha is perfect for this as it contains a small amount of caffeine which is naturally found in tea, so it will give you a subtle energy boost without all of the negative side effects that come with energy drinks or coffee. It also contains L-theanine, which helps to lower anxiety, promote relaxation and reduce stress hormones, which is ideal post-workout.
- Helps you to Recover Faster
After a workout, lots of people suffer from aching joints and muscles, and they want to try and boost healing and recovery. Kombucha is rich in glucosamine, which is naturally found in our bodies and works to repair connective tissue, keeping our joints healthy. Glucosamine also helps our bodies to build and repair cartilage, tendons and ligaments, and it supports healthy muscles and joints - so it's a fantastic ingredient to add post-recovery. Kombucha is also filled with antioxidants, minerals and vitamins, making it the perfect drink to aid your body during recovery and give it everything that it needs to get you feeling your best again.
