4 Benefits of Kombucha

Articles 8 Nov 2018

Kombucha is a fermented tea that has been consumed for thousands of years. Not only does it have the same health benefits, the kombucha is also rich in probiotics. Kombucha also contains antioxidants, can kill harmful bacteria and can help fight several diseases. Let’s look at other benefits of Kombucha.

1. Good for detoxification

Teeming with enzymes and acidic bacteria, kombucha is believed to help with natural detoxification. Gluconic acid, which is found in kombucha and fruits and vegetables, can bind poisons to help expel them from the body. Gluric acid, also a kombucha tea fermentation product, can improve the efficiency of liver detoxification channels.

2. Improve digestive function

There is plenty of evidence that a combination of organic acids, enzymes, and probiotics in kombucha can improve healthy digestion and soothe stomach aches. Probiotics, sometimes referred to as “good intestinal bacteria”, can help prevent or provide relief from problems such as diarrhea and constipation. A healthy human body has three to five pounds of beneficial bacteria and microbes (called “microbiomes”), but the microbiome can be depleted by stress, use of alcohol, antibiotics, and other harmful organisms. By drinking a fermented kombucha drink, you might be able to help replenish lost intestinal bacteria.

3. Improve the immune system

The healthy gut bacteria gained by drinking kombucha can help stimulate the immune system, which is considered to be closely related to living organisms in the intestine. Probiotics, especially from foods that are fermented and obtained from the fermentation process, can strengthen our natural defenses against harmful microbes and some forms of disease.

4. Reducing cholesterol

Further research shows that kombucha can help maintain healthy cholesterol levels and blood sugar levels. In animal studies, kombucha can reduce LDL cholesterol (or “bad cholesterol”) while increasing HDL levels (“good cholesterol”). When it comes to health problems, such as cholesterol and general blood pressure problems, it is important to include natural combatants in your diet in the form of good bacteria.

Many people believe that kombucha helps treat all kinds of chronic health problems. However, one study states that kombucha is not very influential and its health effects are limited. If you decide to try making your own kombucha, make sure it’s prepared properly. Contaminated Kombucha can cause more harm than good.
