The Benefits of Kombucha


The Benefits of Kombucha

Iced tea, iced coffee, boba tea, and green smoothies—what’s next? Kombucha. Kombucha is an ancient Chinese drink that was known as the “immortal health elixir.” It has been used for fighting degenerative diseases and illnesses for over 2000 years but is only now beginning to grow in popularity.

Kombucha is a type of sweet tea made from a fermented yeast called SCOBY, or a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast. SCOBY is sometimes referred to as “the mother and the mushroom” due to its reproductive rate and mushroom-like shape. It is delicious, refreshing, and loaded with benefits.


1. Antioxidant Powerhouse

Kombucha provides a wide variety healthy antioxidants that help our body fight disease and illness like flu, cold, and fever.

2. Liver detoxification

Consuming kombucha once a day may help detoxify your liver and improve the overall health of your skin. Liver detoxification improves liver function, decreases abdominal bloating and pain, and improves digestion and bladder function.

3. Pancreatic support

Kombucha may also help improve the functioning of your pancreas, which may help protect you from diseases and illnesses like pancreatic cancer, acidity, shooting pains, abdominal spasms, brain swelling, and numbness.

4. Immune system support

Because of its high antioxidant levels, kombucha is a great beverage for protecting and boosting your immune system, reducing your risk of cold and flu.

5. Joint support

Kombucha tea contains compounds like glucosamines that have been shown to improve the health of your joints. Glucosamines increase the hyaluronic acid in your body, which helps protect and strengthen your joints by lubricating them. Kombucha tea may also help relieve joint pain.

6. Curb soda cravings

Kombucha is sweet and carbonated, satisfying the craving for a soda or other unhealthy beverage without the added sugar or calories.

7. Probiotic support

Because of the process of fermentation required to produce kombucha, the drink is rich in probiotics that provide your body with healthy bacteria. These probiotics can help reduce weight and inflammation and help improve your digestive system.

8. Green tea benefits

Kombucha and green tea are composed of the same bioactive compounds and have the same chemical properties, making kombucha similar in benefits to green tea.

9. Weight loss

Similar to green tea, a daily cup of kombucha tea may help you lose some of that unwanted weight. It increases your metabolism and helps you in burning calories at a faster rate. It may be most effective for dealing with that stubborn belly fat.
