Kombucha is a fermented, lightly effervescent, sweetened black or green tea drink commonly consumed for its purported health benefits.
Sometimes the beverage is called kombucha tea to distinguish it from the culture of bacteria and yeast. Juice, spices, fruit or other flavorings are often added.
Not only does it have the same health benefits as tea — it’s also rich in beneficial probiotics. Kombucha also contains antioxidants, which may kill harmful bacteria and may help fight several diseases.
However, kombucha has been reported to cause some side effects, including stomach problems, yeast infections, allergic reactions, yellow skin (jaundice), nausea, vomiting, and death.
Experts recommend limit consumption to one to two servings per day to reap the health benefits of kombucha without going overboard.
