HOWEVER
kombucha is a great drink to add to your lifestyle, and it is important to consume it mindfully. Kombucha is being sold everywhere these days and we buy/consume it almost as a healthy soda, some might even drink a bottle every day.

The bacteria in the kombucha is great for your gut and digestive system, but only in moderation. All though it is being sold as healthy soda, you should not drink more than 1-3 shots of kombucha a day.

Drinking to much of it you will upset the balance in your gut and get an “overdose” of certain types of bacteria and you can create a yeast infection in your gut. ( speaking of personal experience)


So be mindful of your kombucha habits and if you buy /brew a big bottle, keep it in the fridge for a few days and drink a few shots a day instead of everything in one go.
