about Health-Ade LLC

Health-Ade was founded by a husband, a wife, and a best friend—all looking to bring the best kombucha to the Southern California marketplace.Founded in their small apartment in Los Angeles—with a tiny credit card and a big dream—Health-Ade is made the “old-fashioned” way, as nature intended. They are fully dedicated to offering the highest quality and best tasting kombucha you can buy. They do this by committing to things like:pulling out all the stops to ensure the culture is healthy and strong, using only the best ingredients available (like organic and seasonal farmers’market cold-pressed fruit for flavoring), and keeping harmful plastic and UVs away from the entire fermentation and bottling process (yes, they make it all in glass!). Hand-crafted in small batches right here in Los Angeles, Health-Ade also works hard to support the local community, as demonstrated by their efforts in growing Farmers’ Markets and partnering with farms, their collaboration with regional non-profits, and their drive to increase understanding and importance of natural health and wellness(check out their blog at www.health-ade.com/blog).
