Kombucha is a fermented, lightly effervescent, sweetened black or green tea drink. Juice, spices, fruit and other flavorings are often added to the beverage.

Healing Properties

Antioxidant

Metabolism

Kombuchas from green and black teas have bioactive properties that can help control metabolic alterations induced by a high-fat high-fructose (HFHF) diet.[1]

Blood Sugar Regulation

Improved glucose metabolism.[1:1]

Improved plasma total antioxidant capacity and superoxide dismutase activity.[1:2]

Vascular Health

Decreased nitric oxide concentration.[1:3]

Antiinflammatory

Kombucha reduced systemic inflammation by decreasing the neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR).[1:4]

Weight Loss

Reduced total adipose tissue.[1:5]

Reduced blood triglycerides.[1:6]

Reverted liver steatosis.[1:7]

Modulation of genes related to adipogenesis and β-oxidation.[1:8]
