What is Kombucha?
Kombucha, which has been around for over 2,000 years, is a fermented drink made from bacteria and yeast mixed with different types of tea and sugar. The sugary tea turns into kombucha with the help of a SCOBY—a.k.a. "a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast"—which looks a bit like a floating mushroom. Except it's made of live bacteria. It's this bacteria and yeast-fueled fermentation process that sets kombucha apart from other drinks.
The resulting bubbly drink offers plenty of health benefits, including improved digestion and immune function. Thanks to that fermentation process, Kombucha is packed with probiotics as well as B vitamins, enzymes, and organic acids. It might also help you de-bloat—always a good thing!
