  1. Kombucha tea contains antioxidant power that helps to improve skin health and control aging factors.
  2. It is rich in vitamin C that helps to boost up our immune system.
  3. Kombucha tea helps to reduce liver toxicity.
  4. Vitamin B9 Present in Kombucha tea helps to improve brain memory.
  5. Kombucha tea has antimicrobial properties due it contains acetic acid and probiotics that help to kill bad bacteria from the body. It inhibits the growth of toxic microorganisms such as Salmonella, E.coli, and Listeria.

Consuming Fermented food containing probiotic property help to lose weight by improving our gut health.
