In a nutshell, Kombucha is fermented sweet tea – filled with yeast and bacteria. Is it good for you? Probably.
Its health benefits include boosting your immune system and supporting the digestive system. It is also supposed to stop cancer – but there is no scientific evidence to support that fact.
Some people complain that it gives them upset stomach when they drink it. You can make one at home or you can buy one pre-made from health food shops. Buying one from the shops is probably going to be safer than making one at home – as the chances of infection are less.
