What are the benefits of drinking kombucha?
When kombucha is fermented naturally and kept raw, unpasteurised and unfiltered, it contains healthy, living, good bacteria – or live cultures.
Anna explained: “Live cultures can potentially support gut health by increasing the diversity of your gut flora, preventing the growth of bad bugs that make you sick and supplying billions of micro-organisms that are full of vitamins, minerals and fibre, which the healthy bacteria in your gut use as a food source to produce important metabolites for good health.
“By improving our gut health, this can improve immunity, and all the other follow-on effects from absorbing nutrients better, such as improved mood, metabolism and brain health.
“In addition to these benefits, drinks like kombucha also offer a low-calorie and low-carb alternative to other soft drinks and alcohol-free options, which can often be high in both calories and carbs.”
