Kombucha is a traditional probiotic beverage made from fermenting black tea and sugar. Don’t worry, though, almost all the sugar and caffeine are used up by the bacteria Drinking kombucha is a great way to get good probiotics into your diet. It’s a little bubbly too, so it can help when transitioning off soda. Kombucha is also a great detoxifying agent and supports liver health.
If you are just starting out with kombucha – you might want to start slow. Just drink 1-2 ounces for a few days and build up from there. This will avoid a detox reaction, and allow your body time to adjust. If you have widespread Candida (yeast) overgrowth, it may be prudent for you to use kombucha very sparingly for a while. (And it’s best to consult with your nutritional therapist on strategies to address Candida appropriately)
