Kombucha is a gut-healthy alternative to inflammatory sodas, even diet soda.
“Intended to restore gut health and aid in digestion,” Richards says of this delightful, effervescent fermented drink.
“Probiotics and antioxidants are anti-inflammatory and can help colonize the GI tract with healthy bacteria,” Hunnes says.
Kombucha's high probiotic content helps balance your gut. For digestive health, this drink's antioxidants combat inflammation.
“Kombucha's healthy anti-inflammation effects on the GI tract may also slow carbohydrate digestion,” Hunnes says.
Drinking kombucha consistently might improve your gut health and general wellness. Mewshaw says it can aid digestion, energy, mental clarity, and mood.
To get these benefits, how much and when should you consume kombucha? “Best enjoyed around midday,” Richards suggests one cup.
According to Mewshew, a 16-ounce bottle of kombucha should be limited to 12 ounces each day.
When you pick kombucha over sugary colas or energy drinks, your body will thank you and you'll be on your way to a healthier, happier gut!
