National Booch Day
National Booch Day is observed next on Monday, January 15th, 2024 (47 days from today).
There is a national day for everything and Wednesday is no different. We're celebrating National Booch Day, honoring a drink that goes back several thousand years, with the first local gym in the state of South Dakota.
What is “Booch”?
Kombucha, or “booch,” is a lightly frothy, fermented beverage with a rich, invigorating flavor. With flavor options ranging from sweet to tart, KeVita Master Brew Kombucha pairs well with any meal and has billions of live probiotics in every bottle.
Who drinks alcohol? If you like tea, you might also like alcohol. Booch consists of a significant amount of B vitamins. Depending on where your tea is made, you will enjoy the same benefits that tea offers.
National Booch Day History
2019 was the first time of National Booch Day celebration, which was created by KeVita, a beverage company. KeVita sells kombucha under the name Master Brew Kombucha, and also manufactures Effervescent Probiotic Drinks and Apple Cider Vinegar Tonics. On Independence Day, they often place coupons on their website for buy-one-get-one kombucha and hold prize contests on their social media pages.
Kombucha originated in China about 2,000 years ago, then spread to both Japan and Russia, becoming popular in Europe in the early twentieth century. The belief that it has many health benefits for humans has helped it gain popularity in the United States in recent years. A bubbly, fermented drink with a strong flavor, kombucha is made from tea — usually black — sugar, bacteria, and yeast. SCOBY—a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast—is added to the tea and sugar and set aside for a while. It ferments; bacteria and acids form, as well as small amounts of alcohol. The drink is sweet but also sour, and is described as tasting like wine, vinegar, or a carbonated cider.
Some claim that kombucha has many health benefits, but have not found evidence to support this. Claims include it dissolves gallstones, thickens hair and gives color, helps with weight loss, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol, increases blood circulation, fights aging, fights menopausal symptoms and prevents cancer. Although evidence does not support these claims, studies have shown that kombucha lowers cholesterol and blood sugar levels in animals.
However, there are certain elements of the drink that are believed to be healthy. It contains probiotics, a type of healthy bacteria, known to improve digestion. In addition, it contains antioxidants and B vitamins. However, some people have experienced negative reactions to the drink, such as stomach upset, infections, and allergic reactions, problems with liver and lactic acidosis. However, people continue to believe that it has health benefits and many people enjoy drinking it. Today we raise a glass with them.
