Known as the “Immortal Health Elixir” by the Chinese originating around 2,000 years ago, kombucha is a beverage with tremendous health benefits to your heart, your brain and especially your gut.
 
Due to the fermentation process involved in creating kombucha, it contains a large number of healthy bacteria known as probiotics. These bacteria line your digestive tract and support your immune system, as they absorb nutrients and fight infection and illness.
 
Since 80 percent of your immune system is located in your gut, and the digestive system is the second largest part of your neurological system, it’s no surprise that the gut is considered the “second brain.”
 
Drinking kombucha every day can help you to maintain peak immune health, which trickles down into an impressive number of benefits for your overall health.
 
What Is Kombucha?
 
Kombucha is a fermented beverage consisting of black tea and sugar (from various sources, including cane sugar, fruit or honey) that’s used as a functional, probiotic food. It contains a colony of bacteria and yeast that are responsible for initiating the fermentation process once combined with sugar.
 
After fermentation, kombucha becomes carbonated and contains vinegar, B vitamins, enzymes, probiotics and a high concentration of acid (acetic, gluconic and lactic). These bacteria are known as “cellulose-producing bacteria,” meaning they produce cellulose, which acts as a shield to cells.
 
Kombucha Benefits

This ancient health tonic is attributed with several health benefits. It is important to note that while there is an abundance of anecdotal evidence from avid supporters, studies about kombucha are lacking.
 
To be clear- it isn’t some magic pill or silver bullet, but it may help the body function well by supporting:
  • Liver detoxification
  • Improved pancreas function
  • Increased energy
  • Better digestion
  • Improved mood (helps with anxiety/depression)
  • Reducing Candida (yeast)
  • Helps nutrient assimilation
  • May be beneficial for weight loss

These benefits could be partially due to the concentration of beneficial enzymes and acids present in kombucha.
