Kombucha is a fermented, slightly alcoholic, lightly effervescent, sweetened black or green tea drink commonly intended as a functional beverage for its supposed health benefits. Basically, you are drinking bacteria and yeast also known as scoby, tea fungus. The most common health benefit of kombucha would be probiotics. Probiotics in kombucha are live microorganisms that are supposed to improve gastrointestinal issues such as relieving constipation by introducing healthy bacteria to your gut.
My fiancé has acquired acid reflux where he cannot consume many acidic foods or alcohol. So when I mentioned to him to try some kombucha, he mentioned that the caffeine in the probiotic tea is not advised. However, there are other types of fermented drinks that he could try that can also provide the same soothing benefits of adding a capful of vinegar to water.

The first time I tried to use Nair, was in my very early twenties when my hair was coarser and everywhere. I knew the instructions said to leave the cream or lotion on for no longer than three minutes but, following the instructions all I’d have left is stinky hairy legs. I refused to try the cream again suffering with razors, hair bumps and discolorations until recently when I wanted to try alternative methods than an razor. I figured time has passed, let me try the lotion again. Even though many other brands were on the shelves, I was familiar with Nair and decided to try the long lost product again.
