The Dark Side to Kombucha

The Dark Side to Kombucha

Kombucha—fermented tea created from Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeasts (SCOBY)—is commonly hyped up as being a magic elixir. Just like magic, there is a dark side to kombucha. Regular consumers claim this “potion” aids weight loss and digestion, serves as an anti-aging regimen, helps prevent cancer, improves liver function and supports overall immunity.
