FAQ

What is GT’s Alive?

Made with the therapeutic gifts of Mother Earth, GT’s Alive is a lightly sweet, sparkling probiotic beverage that can support pH balance and aid digestion. Naturally caffeinated, each bottle offers beneficial nutrients and plant adaptogens derived from a trio of medicinal mushrooms.

 

How is Alive made?

We begin by steeping a trio of medicinal mushrooms: chaga, reishi, and turkey tail, which are then combined with thoughtfully selected varieties of loose leaf tea to support a healthy system. Fermented raw apple cider vinegar and Grade B maple are then added to create a lightly sweet, sparkling probiotic beverage that offers natural nutrition with a light, refreshing taste.

 

What is the difference between GT’s Alive and GT’s Kombucha?

GT’s Alive and GT’s Kombucha are both healthy tea elixirs containing probiotics and other beneficial nutrients. Made with premium loose leaf tea, raw apple cider vinegar, and medicinal mushrooms, Alive is lightly sweet, sparkling, and a gentle introduction to health-conscious beverages. Kombucha, a fermented tea, naturally has more of a tangy taste. Each offering can support a healthy digestion and help boost the immune system.

What are adaptogens?

Adaptogens are a unique group of herbal ingredients, originating in Chinese medicine, that can help normalize and regulate the body. By improving the health of the adrenal system, adaptogens can help the body respond to stress, resulting in increased energy and elevated mood.
