Kombucha contains probiotics and enzymes, which work to strengthen your gut by promoting the growth of healthy bacteria. The body is able to breakdown food more efficiently with the presence of healthy gut flora, which in turn means increased nutrient absorption. Because of the stomach’s ability for a more balanced and sustainable pH level, the risk for diseases such as Crohn’s, Celiac and Irritable Bowel Syndrome are reduced and those already suffering may find an outlet to help counteract their conditions.
Kombucha contains a combination of both prebiotics and probiotics. This combo has a symbiotic relationship, meaning that the two work together and benefit off each other.
Probiotics can improve digestion by balancing the gut bacteria and preventing harmful bacteria from growing in the gut. While prebiotics are a special form of dietary fiber acting as a fertilizer for the good bacteria in your gut, probiotics are the actual live bacteria that are found in fermented foods.
