London is a city that always finds itself at the forefront of prominent styles and trends within mainstream culture.

In addition to a wide range of specially put together nutritious meals, you can find a range of other healthy food sources in snack and drink form.
These Healthy Vending Machines in London are also helping perpetuate the popularity of Kombucha - a super-drink with fantastic health benefits. You can now find a fix of this nutritious drink in one of your nearest healthy Vending Machines, that are scattered around London.
What is Kombucha?
Kombucha is a fermented drink made from brewed black or green tea with the addition of sugar, bacteria, or fungi, and can come in a variety of flavours - with the JARR Kombucha range available in Original, Ginger and Passion Fruit flavours.
It has been well documented that our guts have both good bacteria and bad bacteria, and Kombucha helps boost your good bacteria, as it is full of probiotics which can help enhance your immune and digestive systems, helping you keep regular.
Just another fad?
You could be forgiven for thinking that Kombucha is just another fad, but in fact the drink dates back all the way to ancient China, so it has definitely stood the test of time. It’s current increase in popularity is testament to modern day society’s spirit of adventure when it comes to experiencing new, and in this case old, food and drink.
Emulating Green Tea
Green tea is one of the healthiest beverages on the planet. This is because green tea contains many bioactive compounds, such as polyphenols, which function as powerful antioxidants.
Kombucha made from green tea contains many of the same plant compounds and mirrors some of the same benefits.
Weight Control & Good News For Diabetics
