Is Kombucha something new?
Kombucha has been around for thousands of years. It first appeared around 2000 years ago in Ancient China. It spread to Russia and Japan. Kombucha has seen a resurgence in popularity amongst people who want to lead a healthy and fulfilling life.
What are the health benefits of Kombucha?
Kombucha is so beneficial to the body because of the by-products created during the fementation process. The fermentation process does not affect the benefits found within a regular tea brew. Everytime you take a sip of Kombucha, you ingest probiotics, acetic acid, glucuronic acid, vitamins C, B1, B6 and B12. Kombucha drinks contain trace elements beneficial to the human body: e.g. zinc, copper, iron, manganese, nickel and cobalt, the content of which is higher than in pure tea brews (Bauer-Petrovska and Tozi, 2000).
Is it safe to drink Kombucha everyday?

Why is Kombucha sour?
