At the HBC we love working with brands, and we are always on the lookout for new exciting brands. 

During our research to find the hottest trends and coolest products, we come across up-and-coming brands and products we love that we just have to share with you!

Let’s take a look at what’s trending in the HBC Recommended Edit this week.

Kombucha is already a staple in the wellness world thanks to its good-for-the-gut probiotics, however, not all kombuchas are the same.

Some are loaded with sugar or pasteurised – which basically kills what’s good for you, the mother scoby (homegrown bacteria and yeast symbiosis that is the magical ingredient to kombucha). And there are even bottles that just aren’t quite what they claim.

Not to brag, but we are very knowledgeable about kombucha.

Plus, we like a challenge. We put our ‘booch hats on and had a look at the best picks.

Suja Juice Kombucha (US)

We already know kombucha is awesome. However, Suja Juice is upping their game with its newest release: this month Suja is coming out with an adaptogenic kombucha in the US. Their Peach Kombucha includes a blend of sweet lemon, a hint of ginger, and a little fizz. This fermented drink starts with exceptional cultures and gets a health boost from probiotics and reishi, a medicinal mushroom used in holistic healing.
