Kombucha has been around for thousands of years but has recently been popular again. Perhaps it has to do with a certain Kavinsky choosing it over beer but it certainly is because of all its wonderful benefits. Kombucha is a fermented tea that has a sweet and sour taste. It is believed to have originated from China.
Kombucha is known to be good for digestion, boosting one’s immune system, may reduce heart disease risk and even may help with weight loss. While you can make your own kombucha, there is a danger that it can grow harmful bacteria or mold and cause serious health problems or even death. Luckily, you can get kombucha ready made from our fellow Malaysians!
