The benefits of Kombucha are numerous:
- The drink contains live cultures and prebiotics. This means that it contains billions of naturally occurring beneficial bacteria and provides nutrients and a healthy habitat for them to thrive.
- The fermentation process results in enzymes, bacterial acids and other metabolites that act as powerful detoxifiers.
- The fermentation process increases the concentration of naturally occurring compounds such as polyphenols and catechins that act as antioxidants, eliminating free radical damage on the body.
- The low pH value has antimicrobial effects. This inhibits a range of Gram +/- microorganisms meaning that you are at a much lower risk of infections and illnesses.
