Ambrosia

~Truly a Nectar of the Gods~

WHAT IS AMBROSIA?

This beverage, commonly called Jun, is made with a friendly type of bacterial culture that produces a wide array of healthful nutrients. It is similar in nature to Kombucha Tea which often contains B vitamins, probiotics, enzymes and antioxidants. However, the culture in Ambrosia thrives on honey and green tea while Kombucha cultures are usually grown in refined white sugar and black tea. This fact leads us to believe Ambrosia is even healthier to drink, and many love it’s delicate flavor which is much more refined compared to the strong vinegary notes of Kombucha.

Ambrosia is carefully brewed with pure water, green tea, raw local honey and a special kind of bacteria culture (called a SCOBY: Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast; yeast can be present from the surrounding environment in addition to the original Jun bacteria culture. SCOBYs are often mistakenly called a “mushroom” but are not, in fact, a fungus) which is believed to have originated in Tibet. The natural fermentation process takes around 14 days and leaves small traces of the culture which can be seen in each bottle. (These are perfectly safe to drink!) Each bottle has also been infused with healing, loving Reiki energy and sacred geometry, adding to the potential health benefits.

Jun and Kombucha cultures have long been revered as potent healing allies all over the world.  We believe information about how to make this beverage should be available to all, in addition to making the product available for others to drink.  We support a culture of abundance, sharing and community, keeping in mind Earth provides for our needs and there is always enough to go around.  In the spirit of generosity and Love that is embodied by the Ambrosia culture, please share our beverage freely as we do!

HOW DOES IT TASTE?

Ambrosia’s flavor is reminiscent of several other beverages including apple cider, honey mead, champagne and Kombucha. It is sweeter than most types of Kombucha Tea, and much less vinegary.

HOW MUCH SHOULD ONE DRINK?

Since each person is different, it is important to experiment and find the right amount for you. A good amount to start with is between 2-6oz daily. See how you feel and adjust it accordingly.

AMBROSIA AND DETOXING

It is common to experience detoxification symptoms, or what is also known as a “healing crisis” when drinking beverages like Ambrosia. They contain nutrients that expedite the elimination of stored toxins in the body. You might notice an increase in body odor for a few days, or pain on old injury locations which indicates that your body is finally healing that place properly. Other symptoms can include nasal congestion, runny nose, or similar cold-like symptoms. This is perfectly normal and should go away after a few days once your body has done its detoxification work. In case you experience any symptoms for longer than a few days or a week, please consult your physician.

IS AMBROSIA SAFE FOR KIDS?

Because Ambrosia contains less than .05% alcohol due to the natural fermentation process, children should be limited on how much Ambrosia they consume. We believe a small portion (2 oz daily or less) can benefit anyone, including children above the age of 5 years. Please use your own good judgment when serving Ambrosia to minors.
