7 EVIDENCE-BASED HEALTH BENEFITS OF KOMBUCHA TEA
Kombucha is made by adding specific strains of bacteria, yeast, and sugar to black or green tea. This mixture is allowed to ferment for a week or more. The bacteria and yeast form a mushroom-like blob, one of the reasons why kombucha is known as “mushroom tea.”
A large amount of probiotic bacteria is produced during this process. These probiotics are healthy for your gut, and can improve your digestion, inflammation, and even speeds weight loss.
