Also known as "long-life mushroom," this age-old remedy – which has been used for thousands of years in China and Mongolia – is now well known in the western world. Kombucha is rich in amino acids, vitamins and nutrients, which are more easily absorbed due to the fermentation process used to make it. Fermentation also has the advantage of increasing the concentration of active ingredients, through the phenomenon of biosynthesis.
Considered an adaptogen, this ingredient has antioxidant and hydrating benefits, promotes cell renewal, and is excellent for skin that lacks energy. It helps to improve radiance by preventing and slowing down glycation, which can play a major role in skin aging. It also stimulates the synthesis of lipids by adipocytes, thus helping to restore volume to hollow areas. Basically, it provides a sort of natural, self-generated, lipofilling effect!
