Rebecca Reightley strives for balance by providing probiotic benefits and natural energy in her specially formulated Kinergy Kombucha beverages, now available at your Market in three fantastic flavors: Crisp Apple, Elderberry Blue and Rubyblue Berry.
“I started Kinergy Kombucha as an alternative to traditional energy drinks,” Rebecca says.
Not only do her green tea kombuchas contain natural probiotics to nurture gut health, she explains, but they also offer an additional boost for the brain, thanks to L-Theanine, a naturally occurring amino acid found in the leaves of green tea. Combined with green tea’s caffeine, L-Theanine provides a clear and focused energy, she says. “That balance between caffeine and L-Theanine in Kinergy Kombucha is great for brain health and recall.”
Kinergy Kombuchas are made with all organic, vegan ingredients that are sourced from local and regional vendors.
The best way to enjoy Kinergy Kombucha is cold and before 4 p.m., advises Rebecca, “because it’s highly caffeinated. And it must remain refrigerated.”
This Bend-based company is woman-owned and operated, with Rebecca enjoying help from her mother, Denise Trowbridge, who assists with flavoring, canning and delivery. “She is a huge help and key to the success of Kinergy Kombucha,” Rebecca says.
Rebecca participates in Market of Choice’s MOJO program, where she receives guidance, development support, targeted funding and distribution solutions.
“Launching my product during the pandemic has been a real challenge,” Rebecca reflects. “Market of Choice has been an amazing partner in helping my product gain a footing and following in Oregon.”
