Kombucha has been around for more than 2,000 years and can be traced back to ancient China where it was worshipped as a remedy for helping several illnesses. Today the fizzy, fermented drink with a tangy taste is being tied to several health benefits. It’s made up of live bacteria and yeast as well as probiotics and active enzymes. Here are just a few reasons you may want to give it a go:

1. Improves Joint Function
Kombucha is filled with glucosamines which add lubrication to stiff joints.

2. Improves Digestion
Packed with probiotic bacteria, the beverage helps the gut ward off parasites and pathogens.

3. Detoxifies the Body
It is loaded with enzymes and organic acids that help to detoxify the body, the pancreas, liver and kidneys and are able to destroy unwanted wastes and destroy cancer cells.
