Updated: Mar 24

In case you needed another reason to enjoy kombucha, we've compiled a list of 5 health benefits this fermented drink offers. Check them out below!

1. Rich in Probiotics

As kombucha is brewed, healthful probiotics are produced that aid in many digestive and bodily functions.

What does that mean?

Specific strains of bacteria, yeast, and sugars are added to tea resulting in fermentation. The probiotics produced can help balance the good bacteria found in your gut and improve your digestion from beginning to end—here's some more information on kombucha and gut health.

2. Can Aid in Heart Health

Heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide... There are many ways to combat heart disease through a healthful diet and physical activity. Kombucha’s probiotics and the tea which is used to make it can lower your “bad” cholesterols and reduce blood pressure to maintain a heart healthy life. Vitamins produced in kombucha also lend a hand in maintaining heart health.

3. B Vitamins

Kombucha is jam-packed with B vitamins such as B6, B12, niacin, riboflavin, and thiamine. These vitamins are known for their benefits to boost your mood, promote brain health, and healthy blood cells. These vitamins also aid in skin production, heart health, and helps turn your food into energy!

4. Immune Health

Everyone is trying to keep healthy these days. The probiotics found in kombucha can even boost immunity by promoting the production of antibodies and immune cells. With nearly 70% of our immune health determined by the microbiome, kombucha is an excellent way to protect and promote your gut health to keep your immune system strong.

5. May help with Weight Loss

Did someone say, “weight loss”? Although there is no magic fat-melting drink. Kombucha is low in calories and can replace many high-calorie carbonated sodas and fruit juices that people consume daily. With kombucha containing about 30-calories per cup, why wouldn’t you make the switch?
